Scott Brown, you ask? Who’s that?
Or maybe you already know who Brown is, because you’re such a bunch of political junkies. Right now he’s the best (although perhaps least-known) hope of throwing a wrench into the Obamacare works.
Brown is a Republican running for the Senate in (gulp) one of the bluest states in the union, Massachusetts. If that seems like a longshot—well, it is. But Brown’s personable and telegenic as well as fiscally conservative, although he’s been all but abandoned by the GOP in his quixotic quest.
But maybe his dream of taking the special election to fill Ted Kennedy’s seat from opponent Martha Coakley isn’t so impossible after all. I can’t find a single poll, although I bet he’s considerably behind. But my guess is that even voters in Massachusetts are getting fed up with what’s been going on in Congress lately, and he might have a chance. If you want to take a look at his website and maybe even contribute in some way, the cause seems worthy.
