Scott Brown had a sad today, as Lowell native “Irish” Micky Ward had second thoughts about endorsing our junior senator.
“I found out Scott (Brown) is anti-union and I’m a Teamster guy,” Ward reportedly told the Lowell Sun. “I found out he’s also against gay marriage and I say if you love someone you should have the same rights no matter who you are.”
Now normally I wouldn’t make all that big of a deal out of the endorsement (or non-endorsement) of a rather minor local celebrity. But of course it was just yesterday that Brown was bragging about the impending endorsement.
“My message to Professor Warren is, ‘I’m right here.’ She’s running against Scott Brown, not Mitt Romney or Paul Ryan,” Brown said to WBZ-TV. “And I’ll be back tomorrow getting Mickey Ward’s endorsement. She’s welcome to come up to Lowell, if she can find it.”
Oh, I think she can find it, Scott. Hell, all she needs to do is look for the cocky ass senator standing outside a boxing gym … all by himself.
