I can’t believe this hasn’t yet earned a post on this site – it was front paged at DKos earlier today and I only just now got home from a long work day followed by a candidates forum for our upcoming town election. Scott Brown decided to address the carpetbagging issue today with the silliest response he could possibly come up with:
“Do I have the best credentials? Probably not. ‘Cause, you know, whatever. But I have long and strong ties to this state,” he told The Associated Press. “People know.”
Yes, Scott, people know – people know you’re an empty suit and a fraud, more adept at posing naked for Cosmo than actually doing anything, you know, useful. The Legend of Scott Brown (R-Bqhatevwr) lives on!!
More from Big Story:
Inside the Red Arrow, Brown claimed a stool at the counter next to Pratt. As he waited for his breakfast, Pratt vowed not to vote for Shaheen. But she also pointedly questioned Brown’s devotion to New Hampshire. Behind him, 71-year-old Manchester resident Connie Antoniou whispered, “I wish the Massachusetts people would stay in Massachusetts.”
Brown told Pratt that “carpetbagger is a derogatory term” in New Hampshire given that roughly 60 percent of its people were born elsewhere, including the current and former Democratic governors. Gov. Maggie Hassan moved to the state in 1989. Shaheen, who was born in Missouri, has lived in New Hampshire for more than 40 years.
“Sen. Shaheen is not from here, but apparently it’s a problem with me?” Brown asked during a brief interview outside the diner.
Does he really need someone to explain to him that setting down roots for 17 years before running for office, then working your way up to governor and then senator is quite different from owning a vacation home and trying to carpetbag your way to high office? I guess not. Bqhatevwr!!
