HOH’s One-Minute Recess: Alias Brown

Between the Cosmo spread and the shot of whiskey that he downed last night at the Dubliner, HOH is expecting (hoping?) that Sen. Scott Brown will be a regular character in our column. To that end, the Massachusetts Republican clearly needs a nickname.

[IMGCAP(1)]HOH polled some of our funniest Senate tipsters to come up with a few candidates.

We liked “Sen. McDreamy” for its “Grey’s Anatomy” reference, “Brownie” (a la “heckuva job”) and “the Brownator” (not to be confused with “the Benator” — Democratic Nebraska Sen. Ben Nelson).

But out very favorite submission so far: “SenatorFold,” a nod to Brown’s nude pose in Cosmopolitan magazine in his law school days. That one’s courtesy of the always-clever David DiMartino, CEO of Blue Line Strategic Communications (and a former Nelson staffer).

Got a better suggestion? Send your ideas to We’re buying the winner Brown’s favorite, a shot of Irish whiskey at the Dubliner.

Overheard on the Hill. “just boarded plane to Denver, PHEW looks like I’ll make it out before DC snowstorm hits”
