Hey Connecticut Friends… Joan Walsh shows Scott Brown for what he REALLY is…

Smiling Scott Brown Slurs Obama

This from Joan Walsh in Salon… if it makes you angry, I hope you get good and mad before Tuesday and come out and vote for Coakley.

Who is Scott Brown, the man who could realistically replace Sen. Ted Kennedy in Massachusetts, and launch a Republican resurgence that points to the end of Barack Obama’s presidency? He got off one of the great lines of recent campaigns when he was asked in a debate about taking Kennedy’s seat and said, “With all due respect, it’s not the Kennedy’s seat, it’s not the Democrats’ seat, it’s the people’s seat.” He’s right, and Democrats including Brown’s opponent Martha Coakley have been moronic to act like he’s wrong.
Brown is also a cipher who’s backed by right-wing Tea Partiers and Birthers while trying to dodge the association. He’s shrugged off connections with the Tea Partiers while attending a fundraiser they held for him; check out their Facebook page organizing against Obama’s visit Sunday. Brown poses as a reasonable Republican, but told a reporter during the Republican National Convention that he wasn’t sure President Obama was born within wedlock.

Quote of the Day (yesterday, actually)

“Our president is a worldwide joke. Folks, do you realize something has happened here that we all agree with the Taliban and Iran about and that is he doesn’t deserve the award. Now that’s hilarious, that I’m on the same side of something with the Taliban, and that we all are on the same side as the Taliban.”

– Rush Limbaugh

He seems to be speaking for himself (and for the Taliban, I guess). I don’t think any of the rest of us are on the same side as the Taliban, but Rush’s anti-Americanism has made me wonder for quite a while.
