Host Michel Martin talks to the Tell Me More Barbershop guys about U.S. Senator-elect Scott Brown's recent victory in the Massachusetts special election to fill the seat vacated by the late Ted Kennedy.

The men also discuss former presidential candidate John Edwards' recent admission that he did, in fact, father a child by his mistress Reille Hunter and Conan O'Brien's mega-million dollar payout to leave NBC's "Tonight Show."

Hear opinions from freelance writer Jimi Izrael, syndicated columnist Ruben Navarrette, civil rights attorney Arsalan Iftikhar and NPR Political Editor Ken Rudin.
