When in doubt, Scott Brown makes it up
Brown said yesterday that his weekend prediction on national TV Sunday that tightening Wall Street rules would kill 25,000 to 35,000 jobs in Massachusetts was based on my speaking with industry leaders in recent weeks, but he did not cite any specific analysis.

I dont see it either creating or destroying very many jobs, certainly not in numbers that are quantifiable, said Peter Morici, a professor at the University of Maryland and former director of the Office of Economics at the US International Trade Commission. Im no fan of this legislation. I kind of like Scott Brown. But . . . I dont know where he comes up with numbers like that.

1. He's been making an ass of himself this past week.
So far he's been pretty good about walking that very fine line between Republicans and Dems but this week he's sounding like a complete fool.

6. he reminds me of the XY version of Michele Bachmann
Some of his "reality" is kind of out there, past right field.

3. Senator Treasure Trail should go back to nude modeling.
He's just a pair of pink shorts away from jump starting that career again. Really, it's what he does best. He should leave the important stuff to someone with intelligence.

4. They don't know where he comes up with numbers like that?
Gentlemen, let me introduce you to these two fleshy orbs. They are commonly known as "Scott Brown's ass." You now know the origin of all his statistics. He simply reaches between the two mounds of flesh and pulls them out. A little dirty, perhaps, from the trip, but still usable on all Sunday-morning political programs, because neither their origin nor cleanliness will ever be questioned by any of the hosts.

5. republicans have three basic 'looks' to their eyes, 1) mean as colonial witch burners, 2)...
Use car salesman that won't STFU till they "put you into a car", and 3) as shell shocked dumb, pointless, fray boy clueless & proud of it as Scott Brown




Put a black hat, go-tee, and wig on Cal Thomas he becomes Vincent Price's walk-on double in Poe's Oblong Box


And if you think deer have it bad, then try catching Tooter Turtle in the headlights

8. No facts = no doubt
How can you doubt facts that you make up yourself?

9. He's learning that Republicans just 'make shit up' and repeat it as if it were true
Fortunately, the MSNBC evening crew has been consistently showing them for the liars that they are and I think the 'can't be trusted liar' thing is starting to sink in with some independents. Clearly nobody is seeing a 'government takeover' of insurance or 'death panels', even stupid people know that granny is still there when they call her - lol.
