Scott Brown Is Not Running For Senate

Too bad.

The rest of this post has been Mika-ized with cooed affirmations in italics.

Former Massachusetts Republican senator Scott Brown

mmm

will not run in the special election for outgoing Democratic Sen. John Kerry’s seat,

Oh!

according to a Republican source familiar with his plans. Brown’s decision means Kerry’s seat is very likely to remain in Democratic hands.

mmmmm!

Republicans are now without a top candidate for the seat held by Kerry,

mm-hm

who was confirmed by the Senate to be the next secretary of state earlier this week. On the Democratic side, longtime Rep. Ed Markey is the frontrunner, but he faces a challenge from fellow Democratic Rep. Stephen Lynch, who is much more conservative.

ugh

With Brown out of the picture, Republicans may turn to Richard Tisei

uh huh

Scott Brown says he can do more outside the Senate (mmmmm), and that's a bunch of hooey (uh-huhh). I'm very curious why he made this decision (Mmmmm) given that he was very well positioned (mm) to hold the seat.

80 There's apparently infighting here in MA amongst various micro-factions of the state GOP. One of Brown's assistants, Kristen Hughes, is trying to become state GOP chair (with Brown's backing), but is encountering stern resistance. Brown probably realizes that even his core party machinery is not in working order, all the more (or less) so what with the bitterness occasioned by his support for Hughes. So he'll wait for the gubernatorial race next year.

If you had won a hotly contested seat like he did over maryha Coakley, defied your party to represent the interests of your state the best you could, and then got bitch-slapped by your constituents electing Taxagawea, would you put yourself back out there again?

I mean, getting defeated by the likes of Warren, who never failed to present herself as a stupid, lying cadidate befoe, during, and after the election, that has to sting, right? I saw a post-election press conference video where she stated that of course women would be a big part of her Washington staff, since they now make up almost 28% of the population now. that was the same presser that the governor had to tell her that he was supposed to answer the national defense questions.

If I lost to someone so deceptive as Warren, I wouldn't represent those voters if it meant pulling them out of a lava pit.

In retrospect, it's difficult to be sure that MA voters really elected Scott Brown to do that "one" job (i.e., block Obamacare). There weren't *that* many eligible voters voting in the 2010 contest for the Senate seat. Most of them were probably voting *against* the Dem candidate, MA State AG Martha Coakley, for being presumptuous that the seat would be hers in a sleepwalk.

After the 2010 election, I didn't get the sense that MA voters (my idiotic and/or criminal neighbors here in the Bay State) really felt at all exercised about Obamacare per se. Pathetic, but there it is.

Convicted Murderer Mistakenly Released In ChicagoCBS Chicago: http://tiny.cc/hddurw

CHICAGO (CBS) — More than 100 law enforcement personnel from the FBI, the U.S. Marshal’s office, Chicago Police, the Cook County Sheriff’s police and the state of Indiana are looking for a convicted murderer mistakenly freed in Chicago earlier this week.

The inmate, Gary native Steven Robbins, was serving a 60-year sentence for a 2002 murder in Indianapolis, and wasn’t supposed to be released until 2029...


But law abiding Americans shouldn't be allowed to have guns, not even when there's a chance that their law enforcement officials will mistakenly release a convicted murdered into their midst. They should just crouch behind a desk with a pair of scissors.

145 This isn't rocket science.

1.) It would be hard to win the special election, though Brown could do it. It would be a tough, tough race however.

2.) Brown would immediately have to begin campaigning again for the 2014 election -- not quite the tough terrain that 2012 would be (as it's a midterm) but still hard times, and as part of a national GOP caucus that is about as popular as herpes simplex.

3.) The most obvious answer hasn't been mentioned yet: Brown is obviously running for governor, and he has a much better shot at that than Senate anyway. Until Deval Patrick, Massachusetts actually hadn't elected a DEMOCRATIC governor since 1988 (Dukakis, natch). After that it was Weld, Weld, Cellucci, Swift, and Romney. Brown is perfectly poised to retake the statehouse after eight years of Patrick (who is now being dogged with corruption scandals of the sort that inevitably catch up with Mass Dem pols).

Dems were very successful also in scaring the low-intensity Democrat voters into believing that Brown might give the control of the Senate back to Republicans.

IMO, Brown doesn't really want to be in the Senate anymore. Not only would he have to immediately run for reelection in 2014, he might face a primary opponent if he won the special election but voted with the Democrats on some things as he did before. And he would have to work with the shrew Warren on stuff for the state. I'm guessing he really loathes her.

You know, we joke about there being something in the water in DC, but there has to be for Centerfold Scotty to make such an asinine statement.

Hey, Scott, here's the cold truth: you were a fluke. You won a special election against an elitist party hack because you came from nowhere, had a "regular guy" shtick and had Tea Party support. Then you went to DC, instantly became Barney Frank's loofah boy and went about trademarking "bipartisan" as your middle name. When you tried to run again, the Dems learned their lesson and came at you with all guns blazing while you kept distancing yourself from those evil anti-gummint teabaggers whose reverence for that silly Constitution embarrassed you. You lost to a blatantly fake "Indian."

And now, given that second chance, rather than go through the motions of mending your bridges, you've thrown up your hands and decided not to run because you can "do more outside the Senate."

A last question, Scotty: explain what sort of powerbase or populist appeal you have, as a private citizen, that makes your witless bloviating any more relevant than the farts of the reanimated corpse of Millard P. Fillmore.

202 What a pussy. He wasn't even running and had a lead over some big-name dems. He had nothing to lose and much to offer in terms of Obama resistance. Plus, who doesn't use the opportunity like this to sidle up to Warren just to say "miss me?"

So, to conclude and summarize: what a pussy.

203 Forget about my oohs and mms and ahhs...haven't you seen my rosy orgasmic flush whenever someone says something good about my Lightbringer?

Massachusetts likes to elect GOP governors thinking it will reign in the spending. They are too stupid and parochial to admit that it has to do with being virtually a one-party state. Probably that's what Brown is banking on. Coupe Deval is presumably headed for some District of Corruption appointment. I don't see Brown as a good executive type but unlike Patrick, there's a chance he won't drool on his tie.

205 That's too bad, I liked him. I never had a problem with a Massachusetts Senator reflecting the spirit of his state, vice, say, reflecting the spirit of Texas.

I think he should reconsider.

206 "Tisei could be an attractive option for the GOP as an outside-the-box candidate. He is openly gay and pro-abortion rights..."

...and SoCons are about 0.00000000001% of the electorate in MA.

207 Maybe he just got tired of having the liberal establishment empty buckets of shit on his head. After a while, that gets really old. Call him a pussy if you like, but I can't say as I blame him.

208 I suspect he fancies a turn in the governor's seat.

209 Senator Staplecrotch thought he could get by on Beltway payola (mmm the vaunted multimillion $ warchest) instead of grassroots fundraising, and he was wrong like his buddy Mittens was wrong. You can only buy office as a registered Dem, not a bipartisan fuckwad. Despite whether Republicans can get elected in MA, and they obviously can, he voted with the Dems and got beat by a real Dem. The fake Republican lost to the fake Injun. Good riddance.
