Senator Scott Brown Plans Coup, Forms Secret Group

Freshly minted Massachusetts Republican Senator Scott Brown admits to planning a conspiratorial coup by forming a like-minded group of anonymous, shadowy, conspiratorial Senators. From today’s Globe:

Brown told WCVB that he is forming a new caucus on Capitol Hill called the Take Back Washington Caucus. He wouldn’t identify the half-dozen senators who will be members, or say how many are Democrats or Republicans.

How Republican of him! Putting together a gaggle of Senators who haven’t the courage to stand up and say what they intend, what they stand for, who they are targeting, smacks of old time Soviet politics and back-room American shady deal-making.

Of course, given Brown’s sleaziness, demonstrated in the rest of the Globe article’s analysis of his hypocritical behavior on the job stimulus package, it may well be that he is simply lying about his mystery caucus, that it doesn’t exist at all and that he is doing nothing but playing to the rabid Republican base to whom all is evil except themselves.

Yep, if there’s sleaze to be done in the dark, the Republicans will find a way to do it. And apparently they done learned Mr. Brown well.

  1. Can you picture the froofrawfraw if a Democratic representative or senator did this? Faux news would run with it twelve times an hour verbally, every fifth sentence on the ticker, and would devote hours in the evening for a month to those evil center-right democrat party people who want to take over our far-right nation.

    • What amazes me is that these people still try to act in secret. Used to be that a few newspaper reporters would nibble at this and maybe get the names. Now literally thousands of bloggers, amateur reporters, professional blognews operations, all will be digging in to this to some degree, and the names will come out.

      And amazing how fast Brown fell right in with the Republican sleaze-in-the-dark mindset. I expected at least some minor resistance so he could retain some credibility in Massachusetts.

      • Why should Brown care about credibility in Massachusetts? He know that if he actually works for what his constituents want, the GOPTB will disown him and he will lose in the next primary. He also knows that if he kowtows to the GOPTB he will lose to a centrist in the next general election up in Mass but he will be able to garner five and six digit fees for speaking engagements so he can rail about how the evil liberals are making it tough on the rich by expecting them to actually pay their fair share for the upkeep of the country which allowed them to get rich without ripping their tonsils out through their rectums.

          I think Brown wants to retain some facade of credibility with the independents so that when he’s up for re-election in 2012 he can stay in office. In any event, the country is showing a decided preference for irrational behavior, and the usual shortsightedness and short memory of the voters, that I’m not sure it will matter what he does. He could be a raging lunatic like Inhofe and get elected here, the way things are going.

          • How can any GOPTBer remain credible and still maintain the support of the Republicans/Teabaggers? These are people who think Hatch is to far to the left. He’s in a tough situation — work for the voters and get hit by a Club for Growther, or work for the Teabaggers and lose the general. I almost (almost) feel sorry for the schmuck.

            And as for rectums? Well, some of the people I work with tend to foce my mind in certain directions.

  2. On the other hand, he did manage to portray himself as nearly sympathetic to the latest right-wing nut to attempt to destroy a federal building (TPM link): Brown says “People are angry.”

    What an ass. I hope they catch him fellating Grover Nordquist in a sleazy motel.

    “LYING LOW LIFE SCUM HYPOCRITE!” and “What a bummer dude. We didn’t need another Olympia Snowe,” and “BROWN, YOU JUST REMEMBER YOU DOUCHEBAG…WE ARE WATCHING YOU!!!!!!!!!!!! AND YOU FAILED AT THE FIRST CHANCE…YOU SCUM SUCKING ASS!!! GUESS MY 10-15 HOUR WORK DAYS WILL HELP PAY FOR THIS TOTAL BULLSHIT!!!!!!!!”

    • Hmmm… people out of work or underemployed getting pissed at the government for trying to do something to help them get work. Sounds like the Beck/Limbaugh/TeaBagger axis at work.
