That's this morning's front page of the New Hampshire Union-Leader, the Granite State's largest daily newspaper. Scott Brown, the former Massachusetts Republican senator and just-maybe future New Hampshire Republican senator, isn't mentioned in the story that accompanies the photo, but the caption represents something of coup for a politician hoping to avoid the carpetbagger label (emphasis added):

Former Mass. U.S. senator Scott Brown, a longtime summer resident of Rye, joined the Buckley's Frozen Seamen team during Sunday's 15th annual Penguin Plunge to benefit Special Olympics New Hampshire.
