This is really bizarre. The Mass. Dems have put out a new video showing that, in fact, Scott Brown has claimed multiple times to have discussed the issues of the day with “kings and queens.” Hard to argue with the evidence.
Personally, I find the video’s “Dancing Queen” soundtrack, etc. to be a tad over the top. Because what the actual video footage makes clear is that Scott Brown has been repeatedly peddling a line that is clearly untrue – as his spokesman admitted yesterday when he said that Brown “misspoke” about “kings and queens.” Brian McGrory, who is clearly losing patience with our junior Senator, today expressed concern about Brown’s stability in light of yesterday’s on-radio gaffe:
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.
But had McGrory known that Brown has made the “kings and queens” claim not just once, but multiple times, over many months, imagine how much harsher his column might have been (and maybe will be when he next writes). Because if you say something that is patently and absurdly false a bunch of times, it’s not “misspeaking.” It’s … well, you fill in the blank.
