You Won’t Have Hottie McAwesome to Kick Around Anymore

That’s right, Scott Brown will not run in the special election to replace John Kerry in the Senate.

Despite the fact that he remains popular in Massachusetts, the highly negative tone of his campaign against my hero Elizabeth Warren probably hurt him.  There are also speculations that he might be looking at a shot at the governor’s office.  That would be interesting!  Not sure that Scott’s prior experience posing nude for Cosmopolitan, working as a hand model or sashaying down the couture runways in pink leather shorts will necessarily provide the skillz set for a high pressure administrative job.

He’s just another low IQ Republican douchebag to me, & I’m glad Elizabeth Warren ate his lunch in the general election. He deserved it after the way he campaigned against her. Hopefully his 15 minutes, like Sarah Palin’s, is finally at an end.

Wow! I thought his Senate run was the only reason Republicans didn’t filibuster Kerry’s appointment all to hell and gone.

I’m sure he would greet us snarking about this with a hearty heighho “Bqhatevwr”.

My original home state, I never understood why this obvious phony, lightweight ever had a chance.  Martha and the disastrous Democratic turnout of 2010, the consequences of which we will be living with until at least 2020 were his unexpected moment in the sun…er ...pickup.

The GOP alternatives in the Bay State? >Crickets<
Yep, nothing much credible.  But let’s do try to mobilize the vote.  The Senate GOP is totally toxic

I still get nauseous thinking about how costly the 2010 midterms were, and I can’t help but blame the president.  He assembled a vast volunteer force in 2008, and then unilaterally disarmed after the election, when his opponents were ramping up an astroturf onslaught.  *SIGH* Barry blew it, he really did, and he paid the price as much as his constituents did.

You have a good point.  But what Obama did had never really been done before.  And frankly a lot of us, including me, never thought the Tea Party would ever be anything but a joke.  We just didn’t realize at that point that it was anything but a “grass roots” effort.  It was “astro turf” all the way.  But like all fads it’s looking like the Tea Party (of nothing) is running it’s course and sanity may return to our politics again.  Soon.  Sometime.  Bqhatevwr.  ;-)

You’ve really got to blame the MA dems for the loss to Scott Brown—Coakley was a terrible candidate and Menino stabbed her in the back and sided with Brown during that election so the usual Democratic Machine didn’t turn out for her.  I don’t actually think Obama’s vaunted campaign could have done much for her and he was clearly very leery of being seen to be simply the leader of the DEms and interfereing with local state politics. I wish that weren’t true but I don’t think that was necessarily the wrong stance to take.

There were other big fuckups during those first months of his first term including the refusal to seat Franken, Reid’s failures on filibuster reform, the gulf blowout…etc…etc…etc…

In addition it actually takes some doing to convert a presidential campaign into a non presidential advocacy group. They are doing it now but they are more sophisticated than they were about post Citizen’s United style PACS.
