" BOSTON (CBS) – Massachusetts Democratic Party Chairman John Walsh set off a controversy Monday by referring to Senator Scott Brown as “an honorary girl.”

" “We’ve got to say a few good things about him: He handsome, right? He’s still got the coat. He’s still got the truck. He’s a regular guy,” Walsh was quoted as saying.
