Scott (Senator-Centerfold) Brown Gets A Royal Flush

We already knew that Massachusetts’ Teapublican Senator Scott Brown is an Emperor with no clothes (see his nude centerfold in Cosmopolitan magazine). What we did not know however, is that he alleges that he pals around with other royalty to boot! Whether or not these other royals shed their own robes when in Scott Brown’s company is still open to conjecture.

Scott Brown must be truly worried about his upcoming election in November. He appears to realize that not only is his Democratic opponent (and architect of the Consumer financial Protection Agency) out-raising him in campaign donations, but Elizabeth Warren is also winning the war of framing the campaign on the actual issues. Rather than resort to character assassination as Brown has done by alleging that Warren is not of Native American descent as she claims her parents told her, Warren has taken the fight to Brown by revealing that his Senate votes prove that he is indebted to the Wall Street bankers who provide the vast majority of his donations and not to the working/middle class who he pretends to represent.

Consequently, Scott Brown is now attempting to portray himself as a very important and powerful Senator during his campaign for the most highly anticipated Congressional race in the nation (his opponent has hauled in more than any of the 1,613 candidates officially running for Congress) . This is ridiculous of course, because Brown is only a junior Senator with little more than 2 years tenure. In fact, the Republican party leadership thinks so little of Brown that shortly after he was elected in a special election in 2010 following the death of Ted Kennedy, they evicted Brown out of Kennedy’s primo and spacious office space to a tiny dank and dark office in the bowels of the Senate. Brown has also lost favor with rank and file Republican Senators and conservative voters for his unreliability in voting the party line.

But even if his own Republican leadership insists that Brown is ineffectual and unreliable, Brown is hearing none of it. He sees himself in an entirely more flattering light. Indeed, Scott Brown believes that he is a power-broker who influences world events by caucusing with the leaders of the world. Just this week he appeared as a guest on Boston talk radio station WTTK-FM and told this whopper of a tale:

“Each and every day that I’ve been a United States Senator, I’ve been discussing issues, meeting on issues, in secret meetings and with kings and queens and prime ministers and business leaders and military leaders, talking, voting, working on issues every single day.” (Here is the audio: http://www.hark.com/clips/yqmgpwmfmz-kingsandqueens)

Immediately after the interview aired, Massachusetts Democratic Party Chairman John Walsh demanded a list of the Kings and Queens Brown claims to have met with since he took office, reports the Boston Herald. Then, just a few hours after the radio interview, Brown spokesman Colin Reed said the Senator misspoke. Fact is, Scott Brown has not and is not meeting with any Kings and Queens in double-secret meetings or even in the open for that matter.

Many people would refer to Scott Brown’s royal negotiations statement as a lie. However, maybe there is another explanation. As Brian McGrory of The Boston Globe says, maybe Scott Brown is simply delusional. McGrory ponders,

“Scott Brown understands that the Burger King is just a restaurant name, right — not an actual person? And when he sneaks off to the Dairy Queen for an Oreo Blizzard, that doesn’t actually count as a secret meeting with royalty?…Be worried about Senator Brown. Be very worried. It looks like he’s becoming delusional, starting to believe — and worse, trying to convince others — that he’s far more important than any junior senator has ever been.”

To make matters even worse for Scott Brown, The Huffington Post has just revealed that “Senator Centerfold” has been recorded on at least 5 separate occasions falsely saying that he has “secret” meetings with Kings and Queens. Let’s go to the video:

Looks like Senator Scott Brown has been caught with his pants down yet again.

SCOTT BROWN IS THE CENTERFOLD

(sung to the J. Geils Band song “Centerfold”)

Come on!

Does Scott walk? Does Brown talk?
Does he lie and cheat?
More devil than an angel
Always dealing in deceit

Scott’s as light as snowflakes
No credits to his name
He’s just a fallen angel
He’s also short one brain

Years go by I’m lookin’ through a girly magazine
And there’s my hometown Brownie on the pages in-between

CHORUS:
My blood runs cold
Scott’s mammaries are toned and bold
Scott Brownie is the centerfold
Brownie is the centerfold

My blood runs cold
Scott’s history has now been told
Brownie is the centerfold

Selling votes under his desk
Wall Street boys thinkin’, Scott Brown’s the best
My oh my, Scott earns their pay
No doubt he is their guy

Brown’s now shakin’ in his shoes
Whenever he’s jeered on nightly news
Like the whole damn G.O.P.
Scott Brown’s a pack of lies

They’re spineless, weak bed-wetters
Tea Baggers are their crutch
Scott Brown was their Queen for a Day
Now these days… not so much

CHORUS
My blood runs cold
Scott’s mammaries are toned and bold
Scott Brownie is the centerfold
Brownie is the centerfold

My blood runs cold
Scott’s history has now been told
Brownie is the centerfold

(Burger King and Dairy Queen break)

Now listen…
It’s okay I understand
Scott Brown is not a manly man
I hope that when Scott Brown is gone
I’ll see him when his clothes are on

Take his truck, Yes he will
He’ll take his truck and drive it
He’ll take it to a motel room
And take ‘em off in private

Although Scott Brown is tanned and ripped
He must regret that day he stripped
Oh no, he can’t deny it
Oh yea, it’s gonna be “goodbye” yet

CHORUS:
My blood runs cold
Scott’s mammaries are toned and bold
Scott Brownie is the centerfold
Brownie is the centerfold

My blood runs cold
Scott’s history has now been told
Scott Brownie is the centerfold

My blood runs cold
Scott’s mammaries are toned and bold
Scott Brownie is the centerfold
Brownie is the centerfold
My blood runs cold
Scott’s history has now been told
Scott Brownie is the centerfold
Brownie is the centerfold

Senator Centerfold (a/k/a Scott Brown) Gets Caught With His Pants Down

The most highly anticipated, most closely watched and most expensive Senate race in the nation is taking place in Massachusetts. The incumbent is the former Tea Party/Sarah Palin darling and centerfold model, Scott Brown and his Democratic challenger is the architect of the newly established Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, Elizabeth Warren. This particular race is considered to be so pivotal because it provides one of the best opportunities for the Democratic Party to pick-up a U.S. Senate seat so as to maintain (and possibly strengthen) its majority status.

Massachusetts of course, has historically been one of the most staunchly Democratic of states. It is one of the bluest of blue places in the nation. When Senator Ted Kennedy passed away in 2009 however, a special election to fill his seat was held in January 2010. As the result of out of state Tea Party money and some local Democratic Party apathy and overconfidence, Republican Scott Brown won that election. The very next day, Massachusetts Democrats vowed to re-energize themselves so as not only to recapture Kennedy’s Senate seat in 2012 but to ensure that Democrats hold on to every elected statewide office.

As the month’s passed, Scott Brown’s popularity began to wane both nationally and in Massachusetts. The radically conservative Tea Baggers were angered at Brown as the result of his siding with Democrats on some crucial Senate votes such as on an expensive jobs bill and he has repeatedly sided with Democrats on cloture votes which served to defeat Republican filibusters of Democratic bills. He has also lost luster amongst Bay Staters because he has been legislatively insignificant (as compared to Kennedy) and because he has been seen by many as a person who is willing to enable a child predator to continue offending. In his 2011 memoir, Against All Odds, Brown admitted that he was sexually molested as child at a local summer camp, but he has refused every request from law enforcement officials to identify the criminal so that he may be apprehended and brought to justice.

The strengthening wave of Massachusetts Democratic momentum and the ebbing tide of enthusiasm for Scott Brown became most evident during the 2010 national midterm elections. Brown’s seat was not up for election, but most every other statewide seat was in contest. The startling result was that in an election where Republican candidates won in a landslide of national elections and captured control of the US House of Representatives, the Brown-endorsed GOP candidates lost every single statewide race in Massachusetts. This made the Democratic party even stronger in that state than it was prior to Brown’s election. Suddenly Scott Brown’s formerly iron-clad grasp on the Senate seat was showing signs of weakness. What the Democrats needed however, was a strong challenger.

Enter Elizabeth Warren. The Harvard Law School professor and architect of the newly formed Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB). She brought instant momentum in the form of national support (and the out of state money which comes with that) and her high profile energized Massachusetts Democrats. Warren, who has never participated in an election and never held a political office, has managed to remain even with Brown in most every recent poll. Her tactic has been to stress the fact that throughout her career, she has fought to help the working/middle class (as a personal bankruptcy attorney) and to hold Wall Street and the Big Banks accountable for deceptive practices (see the CFPB). Meanwhile, she has characterized Brown as a errand boy for the wealthy and his Wall Street supporters. Warren never misses an opportunity to remind folks that conservative Forbes magazine named Scott Brown as one of “Wall Street’s Favorite Congressmen” (Brown also posed nude in Cosmopolitan).

But we digress. Today’s topic is how Scott Brown managed to put his foot in his mouth on at least two occasions this week.

Brown’s first blunder surfaced in his unfortunate response to President Obama’s decision to allow illegal immigrants to avoid deportation if they can prove they were brought to the United States before they turned 16 and are younger than 30, have been in the country for at least five continuous years, have no criminal history, graduated from a U.S. high school or earned a GED or served in the military. Brown, like most Republicans was caught off guard by Obama’s popular decision. The Boston Globe reports that Brown “said he opposes the change, suggesting it would set off a new wave of illegal immigration. He said he would be open to allowing young people who have chosen military service to obtain citizenship in recognition of their sacrifice. ‘Rather than sidestepping Congress on this major policy shift, the president should work with us toward a bipartisan, long-term solution,’ Brown said.”

Scott Brown apparently has a very short memory, however. He seems to have forgotten that President Obama already tried working with Congress when he offered the “bipartisan, long-term solution” known as the DREAM ACT. Brown must also have forgotten that he voted against that bi-partisan long term solution. So much for Brown’s working with Democrats and the President on the immigration issue.

Brown’s second hypocritical gaffe this week involved his conditional acceptance of participation in a televised debate with Warren. Vicki Kennedy, Senator Edward M. Kennedy’s widow, offered to host the debate at The Edward M. Kennedy ­Institute for the United States Senate. The proposed debate would be moderated by former NBC ­anchor Tom Brokaw.  Elizabeth Warren immediately accepted the invitation. Scott Brown however, conditioned his acceptance upon the condition that Vicki Kennedy would refrain from endorsing or campaigning for Warren. In a letter to the Institute, Brown’s campaign manager Jim Barnett wrote: “In order to proceed, we need to know that in keeping with the spirit of neutrality ­expressed in Vicki Kennedy’s letter that she will not endorse or otherwise get involved in this race…”

It is understandable and commendable that Scott Brown wants the debate format, organizers and moderator to remain neutral. Problem is, Scott Brown has not made any similar demand upon the host and moderator of another debate in which he has agreed to participate. Boston radio station WBZ and on air host Dan Rea have proposed a radio debate between Brown and Warren. Warren has not yet accepted the offer but Brown and the host have vowed that the event will take place. Brown went so far as to say he will debate an empty chair if Warren doesn’t show up.

Host and moderator Dan Rea however, is anything but neutral. He is a rabidly conservative talk radio host who has admitted on air that he is a friend of the Brown family and a huge supporter of Scott Brown’s candidacy. Additionally, Rea berates everything about Elizabeth Warren on nearly every one of his broadcasts. To be fair, shouldn’t Scott Brown also demand that Dan Rea “will not endorse or otherwise get involved in this race”? Do you think he will do so? Don’t count on it.

Scott Brown is a hypocrite.

UPDATE:

Vicki Kennedy has announced that she rejects Scott Brown’s demand that she stay neutral in the race. She responded to Brown through a letter Tuesday to the two campaigns from the institute.

“This non-endorsement pledge is unprecedented and is not being required of any other persons or entities. To us, such a pledge seems inappropriate when a non-media sponsor issues a debate invitation.”

Thereafter, Scott Brown backed out of the debate. His campaign issued the following statement: “We respect Vicki Kennedy’s decision but we regret that we cannot accept a debate invitation from someone who plans to endorse Scott Brown’s opponent,” Brown’s campaign manager Jim Barnett said in a statement Tuesday. “The Kennedy Institute cannot hold itself out as a nonpartisan debate sponsor while the president of its board of trustees gets involved in the race on behalf of one of the candidates.”

This is a particularly strange response from Brown inasmuch as he participated in a debate without objection sponsored by the same folks in 2010 when the the very same Vickie Kennedy had endorsed his then opponent, Martha Coakley.

Somebody, please call a WHAAAAAAAAMBULANCE for Scott Brown.

What a joke! Will Scott Brown back out of the debate sponsored and moderated by Dan Rea inasmuch as the host is anything but neutral and is a Scott Brown supporter? Don’t count on it.

SCOTT BROWN

(sung to the Petula Clark song “Downtown”)

If Mass. is your home
And you are full of baloney,
You must surely be – Scott Brown
You have your worries,
With no clothes in snow flurries
You’re a nudist boy – Scott Brown

You’re popular in the woods but were voteless in the city
Your term is only two years Scott, and isn’t that a pity?
You’re sure to lose

You’ve got some Mitt Romney hair
But it grows down on your buttocks, we’ve seen when you’re bare, and so
Scott Brown – politics of hate when you’re
Scott Brown – voted right out the door
Scott Brown – private life’s waiting for you
(Scott Brown, Scott Brown)

Don’t wear a frown
As the Tea-Baggers surround you
They are friends not foes – Scott Brown
The “Party of No”
Is just the place that they go to
Where their hatred grows – Scott Brown

Just charm them with the rhythm of your naked bossanova
They’ll be bare-assed with you too before the night is over
Happy again

They’ll take off their underwear
Then they’ll forget all their troubles, forget all their cares like you,
Scott Brown – not erudite or bright
Scott Brown – every nudist’s delight
Scott Brown – you’re gonna be alright now
(Scott Brown, Scott Brown, Scott Brown)

(Scott Brown, Scott Brown)

And you might find that your behind will help ingratiate you
With Larry Craig who loves the view and has a gentle hand to
Guide you along

You two would make quite a pair
You can forget all your troubles, forget all your cares dear bro
Scott Brown – you’ll get kicked out the door
Scott Brown – Won’t take a minute more
Scott Brown – Private life’s waiting for you

Scott Brown (Scott Brown) Scott Brown (Scott Brown)
Scott Brown (Scott Brown) Scott Brown (Scott Brown)
(repeat and fade out)

Scott Brown Is Afraid To Admit He Is A Republican

ABC News points out a curious fact:

“If you watch or listen to an ad for Senator Scott Brown in Massachusetts, chances are you’ll hear at least one of the following terms; bipartisanship, compromise, Red Sox.

One term you might not hear: Republican.

That’s because for Brown, the Republican incumbent in the closely watched Massachusetts Senate race, his party identity could put him at an inherent disadvantage in the solidly blue Bay State.

As of February 2012, the voter enrollment figures from the Massachusetts Secretary of State showed that out of the total 4-million-plus registered voters, just 466,431 were registered Republicans — about 11 percent. Registered Democrats outnumber them by three to one — 1,475,879 are listed by the secretary’s office, an inherent advantage for Democratic challenger Elizabeth Warren.”

Truth be told, it is a bit strange that the clothing-challenged Brown mentions the Boston Red Sox either. After all, when Brown was a state representative, he not only pushed to remove the team from the beloved  historical Fenway Park, but he also proposed moving the team completely out of Boston to land in Foxborough, MA which happens to be owned by one of his supporters. The Boston Globe writes,

“As a state legislator, he pressed to have the Sox move to Foxborough, the town adjacent to his own town of Wrentham. In a letter dated January, 2001, Brown asked Patriots owner Robert Kraft to consider using property around his football stadium to build a new ballpark.”

But we digress.

Scott Brown’s attempts to fool Massachusetts voters into believing that he is not a Big Bank-loving Republican will prove to be difficult. After all, the nudist was named as one of “Wall Streets’ Favorite Congressmen” by the ultra-conservative Forbes magazine. Also, 11 of Browns top 20 campaign donors are Wall Street banks and private equity firms (in contrast, his opponent Elizabeth Warren has no Wall Street entities as her top donors). Furthermore, Brown watered down the new Dodd-Frank Financial Regulation Law in such a way that it was unable to prevent the risky trading which nearly caused collapse of Goldman Sachs a few months ago and which could have plunged our nation’s economy back into recession.

Brown’s reluctance to admit that he is a Republican is understandable of course. After all, the GOP has been waging a War on Women’s Rights, trying to maintain tax advantages for the wealthy which hurt the working/middle class, injecting religion into nearly every governmental function and trying to fire policemen, firemen and teachers en masse. Wouldn’t it just be easier for Scott Brown to mimic Arlen Specter and just switch parties?

Come on over Scott, the Democratic Party is housed in a very large tent!

Scott “Nudist” Brown’s Tomahawk Chop Backfires

For the last month or so, Scott Brown, the Republican Senator from Massachusetts and his private attack dog, the Boston Herald (Republican) have waged a war against his Democratic opponent Elizabeth Warren as the result of her contention that family lore is that she has Native American ancestry. The Brown campaign and the tabloid have made countless accusations and written scores of articles (see here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here and here) in an attempt to smear the architect of the Consumer Financial Protection Agency. Despite their best efforts, neither Brown nor the rag have been able to show that Warren’s career was in any way advanced by her claim to have Native American ancestry. Indeed, every one of her employers has emphatically stated that they either had no idea of her ancestry or that it had absolutely no effect on their decision to hire her at numerous top level law schools. It now appears that the entire jointly executed smear campaign has actually backfired.

The Boston Globe reports that Elizabeth Warren “has pulled into a virtual tie with US Senator Scott Brown, according to a new Suffolk University/7News poll.” The poll reveals that,

“Warren, the presumptive Democratic nominee, has the support of 47 percent of likely voters in Massachusetts, compared to 48 percent for Brown, a dead heat in a poll with a margin of error of plus or minus 4 percentage points.

That is a significant shift from the last Suffolk poll in February when Warren, a consumer advocate and Harvard Law School professor, trailed Brown, a Wrentham Republican, 49 percent to 40 percent.”

Yes, the poll shows that Elizabeth Warren has actually gained 7 points in the poll while Brown is losing support all since the mud-slinging by Brown and Co. began. The poll was conducted between May 20th and May 22nd and will certainly “help Warren fend off criticism from political insiders who complained that she had bungled her response to the issue by not confronting it more directly.”

Importantly, “Forty-nine percent said they believe Warren is telling the truth about being part Native American, compared to 28 percent who said they believe she is not being honest and 23 percent who said they were not sure.”

Voters do not appear to be punishing Warren for it, said Suffolk’s pollster, David Paleologos. “I’m not saying there was no damage from the Native American thing, but if you zoom out to see what the net effect was, it was minimal,” he said. “What we can conclude is people do not believe it is a significant story. It’s considered a nonstory.”

Former state treasurer and  major GOP player in Massachusetts, Joe Malone said, “This has been like a fender-bender on the side of the road. They’re slowing down to look, but it’s not changing where they’re heading.”

The Hill reports, “In Massachusetts — where Democrats outnumber Republicans 3 to 1 but independents make up more than half the electorate — voters have a history of shrugging off scandals that would in other states prove fatal. Brown’s predecessor, former Sen. Edward Kennedy (D), survived the Chappaquiddick incident to win reelection for another four decades. Rep. Barney Frank (D) survived a prostitution scandal, and Gov. Deval Patrick (D) outlived a $46,000 Cadillac he leased with taxpayer dollars during his first weeks in office.”

The Boston Globe also reports that Elizabeth Warren “could benefit from President Barack Obama’s strong standing in Massachusetts, and the surge of Democrats he could bring to the polls in November.  In the presidential race, Obama crushed former governor Mitt Romney by 25 points, 59 percent to 34 percent in Massachusetts, a reflection of how far Romney has fallen out of favor in the state he once governed.”

Here is an interesting spot which appeared on “Morning Joe” yesterday where even former Republican Congressman and Scott Brown supporter Joe Scarborough was gushing over Elizabeth Warren:

watch?feature=player_embedded&v=MSK2S2t4nsA

Elizabeth Warren can now get back to forcing the clothing-challenged Scott Brown to talk about the issues that are important to the Massachusetts electorate. One of those issues is why did the conservative Forbes magazine name Scott Brown as one of “Wall Street’s Favorite Congressmen”?

SEND IN SCOTT BROWN

 (sung to the Judy Collins song “Send In The Clowns”)

Claims he’s not rich
Poses while bare
Drives an old truck around town
Mitt Romney hair
This is Scott Brown

And with a kiss
Scott does approve
Of tearing Medicare down
He is a boob
This is Scott Brown
Yes. It’s Scott Brown

Made many stops on his book tour
But he refuses to reveal his child molester
Though he may molest again, Scott Brown does not care
Turns a blind eye
Brown does not care

Scott Brown’s a farce
His end is near
He’s not what the Tea Party wants…
Sorry, Scott dear!
He is just a clown
So Mr. Brown
Don’t bother next year

(plagiarism break)

Isn’t it rich?
Sometime next year
He will be unemployed late in his career
Yes, so long Scott Brown
We’re done with Scott Brown
Let’s stand up and cheer.

Scott Brown: The People’s Plagiarist.

The local tabloid rag affectionately known as the Boston Herald (Republican) (which, as the result of low readership is printed and delivered by the city’s much more popular “newspaper of record”, The Boston Globe) has recently been planting the seed that Democratic Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren may have plagiarized a few recipes in 1984 and had them printed in a cook book. The book in question is titled “Pow Wow Chow” and is a compilation of “special recipes passed down through the Five Tribes families.” Ms. Warren’s cousin edited the book and it was published by the Five Civilized Tribes Museum in Muskogee, Oklahoma. The Boston Herald claims that two of the recipes contributed by Warren already appeared in a 1979 article of the Virgin Island Daily News by Pierre Franey of the New York Times News Service.

Plagiarism on behalf of Warren? Could be. Let’s wait to hear the response from her campaign. Nevertheless, these are only recipes we are talking about. They are not scholarly articles or political position statements on important issues. They are not even live public statements uttered by the candidate at a political event. Indeed, these recipes were submitted close to 30 years ago and there has been no claim that there has been a repeat occurrence.

Wat a second. What’s that…there is another example of Elizabeth Warren plagiarizing since the 1984 recipes? The National Review uncovered and reported on Warren plagiarizing in her very own book about economics in 2006? Say it isn’t so!

Huh? False alarm? In fact, there is no evidence that this plagiarism occurred? What about the aforementioned National Review article published just this week? That article, titled “Plagiarism In Elizabeth Warren’s 2006 Book”, specifically stated that her book “All Your Worth”,  “includes a passage that appears to include parts of two paragraphs directly lifted from a book published in 2005, “Getting on the Money Track” by Rob Black. The story was picked-up and published by Glenn Beck and Brietbart and Republican Scott Brown’s campaign was sending it to anyone who they thought might spread the revelation.

It appears that The National Review made a fool of itself. Author Katrina Trinko reported that Warren’s book was published in 2006 and Black’s in 2005. She was wrong and MassLive.com reports that Trinko was forced to write a correction/retraction after her column had only been published for about an hour. Warren’s book was actually published in March 2005, while Black’s was published that October. (The paperback version of Warren’s book was published in 2006.) “. As such, it appears that “Getting on the Money Track” (published in October 2005) plagiarized from “All Your Worth”, not the other way around,” Trinko wrote in her correction. The National Review also scrubbed the original and incorrect story from its website.

OK then, what we are left with is a claim that Democratic Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren may have provided a few recipes, which were not her own, to a Native American museum’s cookbook back in 1984. What about her Republican opponent, incumbent Senator Scott Brown? Does he have any plagiarism issues in his best? Well, as Sarah Palin would say, “You Betcha!”

Scott Brown was first caught plagiarizing (as far as we know) shortly after he won a special election in January 2010 shortly after the death of longtime Massachusetts Senator Ted Kennedy. The Boston Globe reported at the time that the following passage which Brown placed on his Website as his “Personal Values Statement” was lifted virtually verbatim from Elizabeth Dole’s site and one of her public speeches:

“I was raised to believe that there are no limits to individual achievement and no excuses to justify indifference. From an early age, I was taught that success is measured not in material accumulations, but in service to others. I was encouraged to join causes larger than myself, to pursue positive change through a sense of mission, and to stand up for what I believe.”

Indeed, aside from the omission of an opening line — “I am Mary and John Hanford’s daughter” and a reference about her husband — in Dole’s speech, the Bay State Republican’s language is the same throughout.

The Washington Monthly reported that Brown initially blamed a summer intern for a technical mix-up, arguing that Dole’s website had served as a template for his own, and this was an inadvertent holdover. This did not explain, however, why two sentences from Dole’s speech — one about her parents’ names, and one about her husband — had been carefully removed from the copy-and-paste job.

“This kind of plagiarism makes me wonder how many things about Scott Brown are really genuine,” said Rodell Mollineau, president of American Bridge 21st Century. Mollineau also said, “The fact that he can’t come up with a personal values statement of his own, that he has to steal someone else’s, I think is very instructive of what kind of politician he is.”

To make matters even worse for the clothing-challenged Scott Brown, Politico revealed that the cover-up story involving the summer intern did not hold water. “Marcie Kinzel, a spokeswoman for Brown, told Reuters on Thursday that the senator’s website hasn’t been updated since around Feb. 2010 when her boss took office. One Democratic source told POLITICO that this timeline clearly doesn’t match up with the senator’s claims, since February would have been ‘well before any ‘summer intern’ would have been onboard. It seems Sen. Brown’s office is so busy trying to cover their tracks that they forgot to get their story straight before talking to the press,’ the source said. Also, Kevin Franck, a spokesman for the Massachusetts Democratic Party, said it’s ‘hard to believe’ that a summer intern would have been responsible for parts of the website that Brown’s office says was launched in February.’ After he bragged about seeing fake Osama bin Laden pictures and his campaign was caught running fake twitter accounts to anonymously attack Democrats, it’s becoming harder and harder to tell the difference between Scott Brown’s truth and Scott Brown’s fiction.”‘

But wait, Scott Brown has plagiarized even more. The Boston Globe reported today, that back in 2011,

“Within three days of a “60 Minutes’’ broadcast that suggested some members of Congress were financially profiting from advance knowledge of government regulations, Brown introduced a measure blocking anyone in Congress from using nonpublic information to influence personal investments. Brown muscled his way into the headlines in a race against a fellow Senate freshman, Kirsten Gillibrand, a Democrat from New York who was drafting her own version of the same bill.

Brown has said that he does his homework and that he reads the bills that come before Congress. But in this instance, Brown’s measure was so hastily drafted that it contained exact language lifted from an earlier House bill (drafted by Democrats) on the same subject. And even after Brown’s draft was set aside by the Homeland Security Committee in favor of another version, Brown continued to claim credit in an encounter with President Obama.”

OK then, so there are two examples of Scott Brown plagiarizing on important political topics since he was elected a Republican U.S. Senator in 2010. That’s not so bad, right? It is not as if there are three examples of Scott Brown plagiarizing somebody else’s words. Oh no. There couldn’t possibly be a third example of Scott Brown plagiarism, could there?

Strike three! Just two months ago, while delivering an address at Boston’s annual St. Patrick’s Day breakfast, Scott Brown told a joke about former Republican Presidential candidate Rick Santorum. Brown said, “I see that both Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum now have Secret Service with them on the campaign trail. In Santorum’s case, I think it’s the first time he’s actually ever used protection.” Here he is live and in person:

Funny joke, but the problem is that Conan O’Brien told it on national television just two weeks earlier. during his late night show, O’Brien quipped, “As of today, Rick Santorum will be assigned Secret Service agents. This is the first time Santorum has agreed to use any kind of protection.”

In retrospect it no longer looks as if Scott Brown took back (as he called it) “the people’s seat” so much as he has become the people’s plagiarist. Like that proverbial emperor, this Senator has been exposed as having no clothes.

Scott Brown’s $64,000 Unanswered Question

Teapublican Senator Scott Brown of Massachusetts has been busy attacking his Democratic Party opponent Elizabeth Warren for the last week regarding her Native American heritage. His campaign has been suggesting that Ms. Warren in fact has no such heritage or that her Native American roots are so distant that she has no right to acknowledge them. Brown’s implication is that Warren should somehow be ashamed or embarrassed by claiming her heritage.

First of all, it should be noted that it has been determined that Ms. Warren has in fact descended from at least one Cherokee and that she has 1/32 Native American lineage. As a point of comparison, it should also be noted that Bill John Baker, the present Chief of the Cherokee Nation is also 1/32 Cherokee by blood. Should Chief Baker also be criticized? Despite Warren’s confirmed heritage however, Scott Brown continues to maintain that, “if there are questions she should answer them.” Elizabeth Warren has answered those questions.

It is Scott Brown however, who should be ashamed and embarrassed by his refusal to answer a question. The particular question asked of Brown by Massachusetts law enforcement is if he is willing to identify the person who he alleges molested him as a child. To date, Scott Brown has refused to identify this person thereby potentially enabling a child molester to continue abusing children.

Scott Brown injected himself into the spotlight last year when he issued a press release for his yet unreleased autobiography titled “Against All Odds: My Life of Hardship, Fast Breaks, and Second Chances”. That press release revealed for the first time that the clothing-challenged Brown had been a victim of childhood sexual abuse on at least three occasions and by two different deviants. Two of those molestations occurred at a Massachusetts summer camp and the other happened at an unidentified location. By including that bit of personal red meat in the pre-publication release, there is no denying that the revelation was intended to launch sales of his book.

Brown however, has steadfastly refused to identify his molester and has also refused to assist law enforcement agencies in investigating the matter. When asked by local television station WBZ, at the time of the book’s release, if he would pursue his alleged sexual abuser, Brown said, “I have more important things to do… he’s probably in his 70s today.” Massachusetts Cape and Islands District Attorney, Michael O’Keefe reports that Scott Brown told him he didn’t want to pursue the case.  By means of his investigation obstruction, Scott Brown has painted himself into a corner from which he may not be able to escape without a permanent unsightly stain on his moral character.

The Senator had every right to keep his sexual abuse to himself as a matter of personal privacy. Indeed, he recently admitted that until the release of his book, he never mentioned the molestation to anyone including his mother and wife. That was his prerogative, but as soon as Brown publicized the abuse in his memoir, the rules changed. The criminal allegations have now been made public by Brown and there are resultant ramifications and obligations which must be addressed. Scott Brown now has a moral duty to reveal the identity of his abuser if for no other reason than to prevent this sexual predator from hurting more children. It makes no difference that the criminal is “probably in his 70′s” because there are numerous examples of convicted sexual predators in that age range. Additionally, inasmuch as sex offenders tend to repeat their crimes, it was quite likely that an identification made by a victim with Brown’s stature would urge any other past victims to come forward.

That is precisely what has happened since Brown’s confession. Shortly after the release of the book, an unidentified man came forward and claimed that he was molested at a Massachusetts summer camp (Camp Good News) where it has been confirmed that Brown also stayed. Indeed, this second victim said he came forward as the result of Brown’s disclosure. The difference between this victim and the nudist Senator however, is that this man had the courage and moral fortitude to assist law enforcement in its attempts to capture a child molester on the loose. In fact, the victim’s lawyer Mitchell Garabedian, said that his client would “fully cooperate” with any investigation because “he wants to make the world a safer place for children.”

Shortly after this new victim contacted law enforcement, we learned that the alleged molester Charles Devita, took his own life when he learned that he was being investigated. Brown has said that Devita was not his molester. If Devita was indeed a child abusing sexual deviant, then his reign of terror has ended and he will never violate a child again. The suicide occurred so quickly on the heels of the identification that it would appear that the person either felt that his capture was imminent or he suffered from an uncontrollable level of guilt. Since then, Garabedian has been contacted by two more brave men that claim to have been sexually molested at the camp by Devita as well as an additional brave man and woman who claim to have been molested at the camp by someone else. The investigation by law enforcement of that “someone else” is now under way and it is likely that if there is evidence of his guilt, that “someone else” will be brought to justice and another child molester will be prevented from re-offending.

All the while, Scott Brown continues to refuse to divulge the identity of his abuser to law enforcement agencies while maintaining that his molester was not Devita. This means that Brown continues to enable his molester to roam freely with the potential to defile again. Brown appeared on Boston radio host Howie Carr’s program on WRKO AM 680 in April of 2011 and was confronted by the host regarding Brown’s refusal to assist in bringing a potentially dangerous child molester to justice.

Carr asked the following question: Isn’t it important for you to come out and name or at least cooperate?

Brown responded: Howie, nobody has asked me to do anything.

Carr then said: But, can we agree that pedophiles don’t usually stop committing these crimes?

Brown responded: Historically that’s accurate, yeah.

Carr then followed with: So, isn’t it the best move to inform the authorities who molested you?

Brown responded: Howie, I have no evidence that the person who did it to me 42 years ago is no. 1 even alive and no. 2 is doing it again…If I had any … inclination whatsoever I certainly would do anything… but once again, I’m moving forward in my own way…

Carr followed-up with:  …So, O’Keefe (Cape and Islands District Attorney) has not spoken to you. Is that what you are saying?

Brown said:  I’m not gonna talk to you about it anymore because it’s really nothing to do with what I’m doing on Capitol Hill right now.

Carr then put Brown on the spot again by saying:  OK, one last question. You don’t feel any guilt about what happened this morning (i.e. the alleged suspect’s suicide)?

Brown then selfishly answered:  … I’m a victim Howie, so I felt guilty long enough…

Carr:  But there could be other victims.

Brown’s non-answer:  If that’s the case. If me and the young man who came forward have given other people the strength to move forward and come out and talk about it, then it’s great.

Here is the audio link of the Carr/Brown interview. The juicy stuff starts at the 1:45 minute mark:  http://audio.wrko.com/a/39260794/senator-scott-brown.htm

To date, thirteen brave former victims of child sexual molestation from Camp Good Hope have come forward and identified “less than five” alleged child molesters. Scott Brown’s continued obstruction is inexcusable. It is morally abhorrent for him to profit by means of publicizing his own childhood sexual molestation and then to claim that he wants to keep the identity of the perpetrator a private matter. His book made this a public matter, and victims may be mounting as Scott Brown selfishly protects a child molester by refusing to identify him. As thirteen unheralded abuse victims did the brave thing and not only came forward, but assisted in bringing at least two child molesters to justice, Scott Brown cowardly sits on the sidelines counting his book sale royalties while another unidentified child molester may remain on the prowl.

When asked whether an identification by Scott Brown of his alleged molester would be of some assistance,  Attorney Mitchell Garabedian said, “Would it help if he named the molester? Sure’’.

It appears as if there is at least this one very serious question which Scott Brown should answer. Massachusetts Republicans and Democrats may disagree on many issues, but protecting child molesters is not one of them.

If Mass. is your home
And you are full of baloney,
You must surely be – Scott Brown
You have your worries,
With no clothes in snow flurries
You’re a nudist boy – Scott Brown

You’re popular in the woods but were voteless in the city
Your term is only two years Scott, and isn’t that a pity?
You’re sure to lose

You’ve got some Mitt Romney hair

Where their hatred grows – Scott Brown

Just charm them with the rhythm of your naked bossanova
They’ll be bare-assed with you too before the night is over

Scott Brown Falls Into Trap For The Unwary

Massachusetts’ nudist Republican Senator Scott Brown has been exposed yet again.

He has now fallen into a trap from which few (if any) Republicans have ever escaped in the Bay State. He has foolishly declared to the Massachusetts population that he is socially conservative. That is a big “NO NO” in the bluest of blue states which was the first in the union to legalize gay marriage and implement near-universal health care with personal mandates. Even former GOP Governor Mitt Romney realized that he could be elected while being fiscally conservative so long as his social liberalism was not called into question. Indeed, while Governor of Massachusetts, Romney declared that “I think people recognize that I’m not a partisan Republican, that I’m someone who is moderate, and my views are progressive.” Romney also endorsed abortion rights while holding office in the Bay State when he said, “I believe that abortion should be safe and legal in this country.”

Scott Brown should have studied the Mitt Romney Massachusetts playbook more carefully. He may have avoided the problems he brought upon himself yesterday. Everyone is now familiar with the controversy which arose last week when the Obama administration announced initially that it would force all employers (with the exception of churches and houses of worship) to provide health insurance coverage to employees which included free contraception coverage. Some religious denominations (most notably the Catholic Church) and all Republicans denounced the measure because they believed that it forced religions which proselytized against contraception to undermine their own message. In an effort to appease those concerns, the administration then modified the regulation to provide that religiously affiliated employers could continue to offer health plans without contraception coverage, but the private-sector insurers themselves must offer individual no-cost contraception coverage to those employees who specifically ask for it.

Congressional Republicans who realized that they had just been outmaneuvered by Obama then over-reacted. They decided the best way to reject the White House compromise is to go after access to contraception itself. The new Republican policy aims to allow all private-sector employers (not just the religiously affiliated) to deny any health services that businesses might find morally objectionable. As The Maddow Blog explains, “Do you work for a grocery store owner who opposes contraception? You’re out of luck. How about an accounting firm that doesn’t like HIV tests? Too bad. Are you an employee at a factory that finds cervical cancer screenings offensive? Good luck to you.”

This new policy objective has caused a rift within the Republican Party. Moderate Republicans are beginning to express their opposition. Indeed, GOP Sens. Olympia Snowe and Susan Collins of Maine have gone so far as to endorse the White House policy and publicly reject the Republican counter-proposal. What about Scott Brown?

We turn to The Maddow Blog once again for enlightenment. The blog reports that The Washington Post‘s “Greg Sargent connected with Brown’s office yesterday and learned the senator opposes the White House compromise and backs his party’s countermeasure. In other words, Scott Brown believes that any and all employers should be able to deny contraception and other forms of a preventative care to female employees.

Ouch! Brown’s position is certain to cause a backlash from voters (especially females) in liberal Massachusetts. You can bet the farm that his Democratic challenger Elizabeth Warren will endorse the women’s rights-friendly White House policy and call attention to Brown’s opposition at every opportunity. Scott Brown may have stumbled into a trap that even Houdini could not escape in Massachusetts.

Here’s hoping that such is the case.

Great Scott, Elizabeth Warren Is Crushing Brown!

The Elizabeth Warren campaign received a belated Christmas present this week when her Federal Elections Committee filing revealed that she raised $5.7 million in the last quarter of 2011. Warren, the Massachusetts Democratic Party’s opponent to incumbent Republican Senator Scott Brown, is proving to be a more than formidable candidate. The support for Warren also appears to be substantially fueled by Massachusetts voters (predominantly Democrats) who are anxious to recapture Ted Kennedy’s Senate seat. Those voters consider it to have been an embarrassment when,  in 2010 Republican Scott Brown surprisingly won the special election for that seat with the help of gads of out of state Tea Party and Wall Street money.

Warren’s fourth quarter 2011 haul consisted of true grassroots support. She had 23,000 Massachusetts donors giving an average of $64.00 per person. Warren is also attracting a surprising amount of out of state money from Democrats who are aware that Brown’s (and the Republicans’) grasp on this Senate seat is quite tenuous. The $5.7 million raised by Warren easily outpaced the Brown campaign which raised $3.2 million during the same period. Warren’s campaign also walloped Brown’s in the third quarter of 2011 when she raised twice as much money as Brown. In fact, in the five months since Elizabeth Warren announced her candidacy last August, she has raised $8.8 million. In contrast, Brown has only raised $8.5 million during the entire twelve months of 2011.

Warren’s wide appeal stems from the national perception that she is a champion of the working/middle class and an opponent of the Wall Street system that caused our economy’s collapse. She was, of course, the architect of the new federal Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. The goal of that agency is to protect consumers from unscrupulous lenders, to insure that lending documents are written in plain English and not complicated legalese and to prevent another future taxpayer-funded bank bailout by means of subjecting the nation’s largest banks to periodic stress tests. Warren recently explained the mutual commitment between her and the working/middle class when she said, “From all across our Commonwealth, people are supporting our campaign and the fight to level the playing field for middle-class families.”

In stark contrast to the consumer-friendly appeal of Elizabeth Warren, Scott Brown was named by Forbes magazine as one of “Wall Street’s Favorite Congressmen.” Brown’s appeal to the Tea Party and conservative Republicans has also been on the wane as the result of his voting alongside Democrats and against the majority of Republicans on several hotly contested bills. Scott Brown is no longer the rising star of the Republican Party which he was projected to be when he took office in 2010. This became visibly apparent when Mitt Romney declined to have Brown speak on his behalf during the New Hampshire primary campaign despite the fact that Brown was one of his earliest endorsers. Consequently, it does appear as if Brown will be capable of raising nearly as much national money as he did in 2010.

Brown has other problems also. He injected himself into the spotlight last February when he issued a press release for his yet unreleased autobiography titled “Against All Odds: My Life of Hardship, Fast Breaks, and Second Chances”. That press release revealed for the first time that Brown had been a victim of childhood sexual abuse on at least three occasions and by two different deviants. Two of those molestations occurred at a Massachusetts summer camp and the other happened at an unidentified location. By including that bit of personal red meat in the pre-publication release, there is no denying that the revelation was intended to launch sales of his book. Brown however, has steadfastly refused to identify his molester and has also refused to assist law enforcement agencies in investigating the matter. When asked by local television station WBZ, at the time of the book’s release, if he would pursue his alleged sexual abuser, Brown said, “I have more important things to do… he’s probably in his 70s today.” Massachusetts Cape and Islands District Attorney, Michael O’Keefe reports that Scott Brown told him he didn’t want to pursue the case.

By means of his investigation obstruction, Scott Brown has painted himself into a corner from which he may not be able to escape without a permanent unsightly stain on his moral character. He had every right to keep his sexual abuse a private matter but as soon as he publicized and profited from the revelation the rules changed. Brown’s criminal allegations have been made public by the release of his book and Scott Brown now has a moral obligation to reveal the identity of his abuser if, for no other reason, than to prevent this sexual predator from hurting more children. It makes no difference that the criminal is “probably in his 70s” because there are numerous examples of convicted sexual predators in that age range and sexual predators tend to repeat their crimes. Scott Brown will need more than the Tea Party to win re-election in 2012. Massachusetts Republicans and Democrats may disagree on many issues, but protecting sexual offenders is not one of them.

The most recent poll conducted in December 2011 reveals waning support which spells trouble for the Scott Brown campaign. The UMass/Boston Herald poll reveals that Brown, who is routinely referred to as “Massachusetts’ Favorite Politician” is presently trailing Elizabeth Warren by 7 percentage points. If Brown wants to win this race, he might be forced to pull out all the stops and once again pose nude as he once did in Cosmopolitan Magazine.

Sunday Morning Coffee (or Tea) – 95

Just a few newsworthy items (and comments thereon) that have been making their way through the political universe this past week but may have escaped your attention. Please ponder and maybe chuckle a bit before enjoying a wonderful day!

BREAKING NEWS: Conservative pundit Michelle Malkin actually got it right last week when she summed up the field of Republican Presidential candidates as “Birthers, flip-floppers, Beltway moldy-oldies, Kabuki reformers. Don’t have stomach to look at GOP2012 field today.” Welcome to the real world, Michelle!

THIS JUST IN: Speaking of Republican Presidential candidates, last week Rick “Man on Dog” Santorum doubled down on his support for anti-sodomy laws in an interview with controversial preacher Bradlee Dean. In 2003, then-Sen. Rick Santorum (R-Pa.) defended anti-sodomy laws in an interview with the Associated Press because “they were there for a purpose.” He added, in a quote that became infamous, “In every society, the definition of marriage has not ever to my knowledge included homosexuality. That’s not to pick on homosexuality. It’s not, you know, man on child, man on dog, or whatever the case may be.” Anybody else doubting Santorum’s electability?

BREAKING NEWS:  It was nice to see Massachusetts Democrat Elizabeth Warren receive a public endorsement from Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn) in her race for the U.S. Senate seat presently held by the clothing-challenged Republican Scott Brown. Franken said,

“We’ve all seen what Elizabeth can do with her smarts — and her guts. I’ve been impressed with her tenacity for years. She took on Wall Street before anyone else would and pushed consumer protection to the top of the financial reform agenda. We know she’s tough and fiery and even funny. We know she’s got a great life story and a full career of achievements fighting for middle-class families. That’s why progressives like you and me have been fans for a long time, and why we hoped she’d be able to lead the consumer protection board she created. And now, when we imagine her voice in the Senate, well, it’s even more exciting.”

THIS JUST IN:  The non-partisan Congressional Budget Office released a report last week which revealed that, “for the 1 percent of the population with the highest income, average real after-tax household income grew by 275 percent between 1979 and 2007,” while it grew by just 18 percent for the bottom 20 percent of the income scale. “As a result of that uneven income growth, the distribution of after-tax household income in the United States was substantially more unequal in 2007 than in 1979.” Anyone surprised why the Occupy Wall Street 99% are upset?

BREAKING NEWS:  Republican Presidential candidate Ron Paul appeared on NBC’s “Meet the Press” last week and announced that he wants to end all federal student loans. That should certainly help with closing the education gap between the United States and the other nations who are faring better than us. Of course, Paul is also the crackpot who believes that the gold has gone missing from Fort Knox.

THIS JUST IN: What’s up with Republican Presidential candidate Herman Cain and the smoking commercial?

BREAKING NEWS: This week a Tea Party leader asked Michele Bachmann to end her quest for the Presidency. Ned Ryun, the president of American majority, a Virginia based Tea Party group has called on the former tea Party darling and founder of the House Tea Party Caucus to quit the race because, “every day the campaign flounders, it risks hurting the credibility of the movement.” He went on to say, “It is clear that the campaign has become less about reform and more about her personal effort to stay relevant and sell books; a harsh commentary, but true. It’s not about Tea Party values or championing real plans to solve real problems.’’ It would appear that the moonbat-crazy Michele Bachmann has managed to squander the support of her most avid fans.

THIS JUST IN:  This week’s “Quote of note comes from Vice President Joe Biden. He said, “Republicans moralizing about deficits. That’s like an arsonist moralizing about fire safety. Spot-on Joe!.

BREAKING NEWS:  The Sarah Palin hangover continues. After announcing that she would not run for President, Sarah Palin’s brainwashed supporters are at a loss. They have absolutely no idea who to worship and throw money at now. In an attempt to come up with an answer they held an online forum called “Grizzlyfest” last week. Josh Painter, who runs the blog Texans for Sarah Palin, acknowledged that many supporters he knew were still “coming out of shock” at Palin’s decision, but that Grizzlyfest was an “excellent opportunity” to assess “where we are and where we are going.” One thing that was clear by the end: real disappointment remains despite a willingness to try and stay together as a cohesive group without a leader. Ah Sarah, we hardly knew ye!

It’s All Over Now song link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XbpU5vBYnfU&feature=related

IT’S ALL OVER NOW

(sung to the Rolling Stones version of the song “It’s All Over Now”)

Well, Palin was around way too long
She winked those eyes, went to Hong Kong
But her heart’s now broken, that’s no lie
Tables turn and now it’s her turn to cry

Some crackpots used to love her, but it’s all over now
Some crackpots used to love her, but it’s all over now

Well, she thought that she’d be crowned a queen in D.C. Town
She’d spend book deal money to buy herself some fame
She has no clout, that must be a blow to her pride
Tables turn and now it’s Sarah who cries

Some crackpots used to love her, but it’s all over now
Some crackpots used to love her, but it’s all over now

(musical interlude)

Well, on Meet The Press Sunday morning, did you hear what they said?
“Palin’s political future is all but dead”
Brooks, Dionne and Murphy really smacked Palin down
Now the whole world knows that she is just a clown

Some crackpots used to love her, but it’s all over now
Some crackpots used to love her, but it’s all over now
Some crackpots used to love her, but it’s all over now
Some crackpots used to love her, but it’s all over now

Elizabeth Warren Gets Under Scott Brown’s Exposed Skin

This is what Elizabeth Warren thinks of Scott Brown's centerfold.

The race for Ted Kennedy’s Massachusetts Senate seat is heating up. You might recall that after Kennedy passed away in 2009, a special election to fill his seat was held in January 2010. As the result of out of state Tea Party money and some local Democratic Party apathy, Republican Scott Brown won that election. The very next day, Massachusetts Democrats vowed to re-energize themselves so as not only to recapture Kennedy’s Senate seat in 2012 but to ensure that Democrats hold on to every elected position which they control in the bluest of blue states.

As the month’s passed, Scott Brown’s popularity began to wain both nationally and in Massachusetts. The radically conservative Tea Baggers were angered at Brown as the result of his siding with Democrats on some crucial Senate votes such as on an expensive jobs bill and he has repeatedly sided with Democrats on cloture votes which served to defeat Republican filibusters of Democratic bills. He has also lost luster amongst Bay Staters because he has been legislatively insignificant (as compared to Kennedy) and because he has been seen by many as a person who is willing to enable a child molester to continue offending. In his recently released memoir, Brown admitted that he was sexually molested as child at a local summer camp, but he has refused every request from law enforcement officials to identify the criminal so that he may be apprehended.

The strengthening wave of Democratic momentum and the ebbing tide of enthusiasm for Scott Brown became most evident last November during the national midterm elections. Brown’s seat was not up for election, but most every other statewide seat was in contest. The startling result was that in an election where Republican candidates won in a landslide of national elections and captured control of the US House of Representatives, the Brown-endorsed GOP candidates lost every single statewide race in Massachusetts. This made the Democratic party even stronger in that state than it was prior to Brown’s election. Suddenly Scott Brown’s formerly iron-clad grasp on the Senate seat was showing signs of weakness. What the Democrats needed however, was a strong challenger.

Enter Elizabeth Warren. The Harvard Law School professor and architect of the newly formed Consumer Financial Protection Bureau recently declared her candidacy. She brought instant momentum in the form of national support (and the out of state money which comes with that) and her high profile energized Massachusetts Democrats. In less than a month after announcing her candidacy, Warren vaulted ahead of Brown in the polls. Next, she gave an impromptu speech at the home of a local supporter which was captured by an attendee’s video camera.  Her impassioned delivery of the progressive message that government helps not only the needy but also the well to do became an instant viral YouTube hit.

Seizing upon her gaining momentum, Warren then had a little fun at last week’s Massachusetts Democratic Senate debate. She chided Scott Brown on at least two occasions. First she declared that unlike Brown, she would would not be named “Wall Street’s Favorite Senator”.

Next, when asked how she paid for her college education, Warren jokingly answered, “I didn’t take my clothes off.” This was a lighthearted jab at Scott Brown for his decision to pose nude in Cosmopolitan magazine to finance his law school tuition. Brown however, took offense. He appeared on a Boston radio station a few days later and when asked by the host what his response to Warren’s comment would be, he answered, “Thank God.” Brown then gaffed however, by saying that unlike Warren, “I didn’t go to Harvard, I went to the school of hard knocks and I did whatever I had to do to pay for school.” Problem is, Elizabeth Warren did not go to Harvard either. In fact, the schools attended by Brown (Tufts University and Boston College Law School) are both “expensive, private, liberal elitist East Coast schools” as compared to the schools (University of Houston and Rutgers School of Law) which Warren attended.

There is no question that Elizabeth Warren has gotten under the very exposed skin of Scott Brown.

I’M DOWN (ON SCOTT BROWN)

(sung to the Beatles song “I’m Down”)

Scott’s tellin’ lies thinking I can’t see
That nude guy is so blind he can’t see
I’m down (I’m really down)
I’m down (Down on Scott Brown)
I’m down (I’m really down)
Watch as I laugh at that nude Scott Brown
(Watch as I laugh) When we vote him down

We’ll all sing when he’s voted away
Brown’s short fling will be over in days
I’m down (I’m really down)
I’m down (Down on Scott Brown)
I’m down (I’m really down)
Watch as I laugh at that nude Scott Brown
(Watch as I laugh) When we vote him down

Once he’s dethroned, he’ll be all by himself
Scott will moan: “They wanted somebody else!”
I’m down (I’m really down)
Let’s vote him down (Vote down Scott Brown)
Scott Brown (He’s goin’ down)
Watch as I laugh at that nude Scott Brown
(Watch as I laugh) When we vote him down

(Wow! Scott’s goin’ down!)

Whoo, baaby!

Oh Scott, you’re soon going down (He’s goin’ down)
I guess your down (He’s really down)
We’re down on Scott Brown (He’s goin’ down)
Scott! Brown! (He’s goin’ down)
Let’s hang him upside down
Oh yeh, yeh, yeh, yeh, yeh, he’s down (He’s really down)
Scott baby you’re down (He’s really down)
Let’s hang him upside down (Let’s watch him frown)
Ooh, that Brown (He’s such a clown)
Scott baby you’re down, yeh
Scott baby you’re down, yeh
Scottie, you’re down (You’re really down)
Scott baby you’re down (You’re goin’ down)
Oh, Scottie, Scottie, Scottie! (You’re goin’ down)
Oh, Scottie you’re down (You’re goin’ down)
You’re down, down, down, down, down, down, down, down,  yeh, whoa!!!
