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.
