Senator Brown: a relatively unnutty, sexy Republican MSNBC loves.

See, they're not all that crotchety or fire and brimstone:

PS In the Obama v. Brown pickup game, I'll put my money on Obama :)

I noticed that too.


The silence when called on it is pretty telling.

".... whose name you can't spell properly..."


I noticed and mentioned that earlier...I concluded it must be some stubborn Freudian slip ;-)

Wow, the Republicans really don't want to touch this guy.

Hey Republicans, you and your Dick Cheney hero just railroaded moderate Charlie Christ out of the party (but that will be a topic of another thread) - what about this guy? Why isn't he on your hit list yet?

Haha....never looked at it that way. That is a plus for Brown.

I plead guilty to trying to find some common ground here. Give me this at least: Senator Brown is not just plain horrible like so many other Republicans these days.

Bush, Cheney, Palin and the rest of the ragtag Republicans in Congress make me nostalgic for Dan Quayle Republican types. Yes Brown and Quayle may be a little slow on the uptake, they may not have a strong command of the facts and they may not know how to spell potato, but at least they are not going to railroad America into an unnecessary war.

And there is the bonus that Dan Quayle types are too superficial and dumb to get themselves elected President . . . as long as they don't hook up with a Karl Rove type and have a Father who was President.

Interesting that the Republicans on this board have nothing to say about Brown. They probably secretly hate him because he's from Massachusetts, the Quintessential Northeastern State that pioneered broadly inclusive healthcare reform and brought us lots of Kennedys.

Hey Republicans? Where are you? What do you think of Senator Scott Brown. I guess I'll just have to assume you have no issue at all with him and think he's a fine up and coming perfectly acceptable Tea Party certified Republican politician if you say nothing (smell the chum in the water) . . .

Unnutty and sexy, perhaps. But he seems to be lacking in intelligence:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M2cz5mLzDnk&feature=related

In that "Face the Nation" interview, he repeatedly accuses Obama of politicizing the financial reform issue, and says he'll join the filibuster. But when asked what he'd do all he says is that he'd sit down and talk with a team--he could offer no specific financial reforms that he would support.

http://www.boston.com/business/articles/2010/04/20/senator_brown_offered_eye_popping_arguments_against_financial_overhaul_bill/

Can't keep numbers straight, either, and somehow he's throwing the "small businesses" term into the discussion where it's irrelevant.

I think he should go back to modeling.
