(Newser) – Aren't Scott Brown and Elizabeth Warren supposed to be debating the social contract and other lofty things? Their Senate race just took a low detour: Warren made a point during a debate Tuesday to take a jab at Brown's old Cosmo cover, saying that when she was a college student, she took out loans to pay the bills and kept her clothes on. "Thank God," Brown told a local radio station in response, reports the Hill. He and the host then laughed.

"I went to the school of hard knocks," Brown said. "I did what I had to do, and but not for having that opportunity, I never would have been able to pay for school, and never would have gone to school, and I wouldn't probably be talking to you, so whatever." The Warren camp did not respond today to his retort. Click for more details on Brown's back and forth with the host on WZLX.
