Let’s get past how obnoxious it is to call yourself amazing for one minute and lets instead focus on the importance of the topic Brown and his campaign wanted to bring to our attention. The campaign’s press release was about
a jobs bill, no a position that he wanted to discuss, wait, shooting a basketball from half court.
Nailed it! Scott lifting his arms in the air and the children joining in after an “amazing” shot! Even though some sports bloggers might have thought otherwise (link not for work).
Well, as it turns out, the Brown campaign staged the entire video.
The video seemed to lead you to believe that Brown hit the short with his only attempt. Glen Johnson at the Globe found out that Brown repeatedly took the shot until he finally made one, they edited the video to make it appear the way it did.
It’s amazing alright, amazingly pathetic.
