2012: It Has Begun

December 14, 2010

Or, “The Scott Heard ‘Round the World, Round 2”

Barely a year ago, Scott Brown stunned state and national pundits with his leap to stardom as the poster-boy for the Tea Party, and against all expectations, ended up taking the Kennedy Seat People’s Seat as Senator Brown (R-MA). So he’s had almost a year of grace to prove that he is, in fact, a Massachusetts Republican, which is far better than a Massachusetts Democrat, by any stretch of the imagination.

And now, not yet even into 2011, the campaign against Sen. Brown has begun. The Huffington Post reports on the first salvo, which was fired by The Agenda Project, the selfsame group who promoted those “Patriotic Millionaires” who want Obama to raise their taxes. Although there is absolutely nothing preventing them from paying more taxes, they simply can’t do it unless it’s legislated for everyone. Of course, out of their reported 375,000 millionaires in America, they could only find 150 to sign their petition. Really? Wow, most of our millionaires must be smart!

But I digress. The brains driving force behind those poor lower-tax-paying millionaires is now targeting our very own Scott Brown, in an attack ad guaranteed to make you feel, er, something:

For those of us who think Sen. Brown is doing as well as can be expected, there’s really a simple solution: watch that video again, this time with the volume off. Say to yourself as you watch, “Massachusetts actually has a Republican Senator.” When you look at it that way, it’s actually a pretty good ad!
