Don't Forget Scott Brown

Yes, I know.  He voted now and again in ways that have pissed all of us off.  But take a look at this piece from the Boston Herald.  He's voted with Republican leadership 75% of the time--the "other" Senator in Massachusetts--John Kerry--voted with Democratic leadership 97% of the time.  Indeed, he is among the most moderate of Republicans in the Senate, right there with his neighbors from Maine.  But he votes with the Republican caucus.  He's yet another vote toward control of the Senate.  Dead-enders can turn against him because he didn't turn out to be a perfect Tea Party candidate--but that is not a strategically sound decision.  You'd rather have Elizabeth Warren, perhaps?  Support Scott Brown.  Contribute.  Today.

You just like his Cosmo spread.

I'm a big fan of Brown's and hold none of his votes against him. We knew what we were getting with him and I give him credit for standing with the Republicans as much as he has. But unfortunately Elizabeth Warren is not Martha Coakley, and it's not an isolated, off-year election. Makes me sad but I just don't see how the guy survives, and it won't have anything to do with him.

I see how he survives, Sally: by running with Romney at the top of the ticket. They're not exactly kings in Mass, but they've both won statewide elections there, and what would the story be if Massachusetts turned Red in 2012? I say, give Brown all you can.
