Politics of Convenience
State Senator Brown really thinks we are stupid:
On Wednesday, Republican senate candidate Scott Brown told reporters in Massachusetts that he was "unfamiliar" with the "Tea Party movement," despite receiving the endorsement of a key national Tea Party group which is currently raising money for his campaign to replace the late Sen. Ted Kennedy.
But Brown's claim to be unfamiliar with the Tea Party movement is belied by photographs produced by his own campaign.
It turns out that the Boston Globe blew the original report of this. Josh Marshall corrects
Still, it is clear that Brown flips more that Greg Louganis. Healthcare, access to Plan B, torture, etc....
While I don't agree with a lot of Republicans on several issues, I respect where they are coming from.
But when you start lying under electoral pressure, respect is not a word that comes to mind.
