Sen. Scott Brown Runs and Hides Under Obama's Skirt

Sen. Scott Brown, the Massachusetts Republican Senator who won Teddy Kennedy's old seat with significant support from the Tea Party, is now running to Obama to try and save his job:
In an attempt to bolster his status as an "independent thinker" in an appearance on Fox 25 Morning News, Sen. Scott Brown, R-Mass., highlighted the legislation that he and President Obama have agreed on.

The sole Republican member of Congress from Massachusetts, Brown faces a tough battle with Democratic opponent Elizabeth Warren.

"The president just signed into law my 3 percent withholding bill, the Hire a Hero veterans bill, the Arlington Cemetery bill," he told Fox. "I mean, I could go on and on and on."

Brown, who has been supporting left-leaning policies as of late, also referred to himself as the most bipartisan senator in Congress.
The GOP can lose that seat and still win the Senate back, and given Brown's aversion to all things conservative, that might not be a bad thing.

To put a twist a classic Elizabeth Warren speech:

“There is nobody in this party who got elected on his own. Nobody. You ran a campaign out there -good for you.

But I want to be clear. You moved your message through the media using campaign donations the rest of us paid for. You received endorsements from people the rest of us urged to do so. You were safe in your campaign headquarters because of security guards that the rest of us paid for. You didn't have to worry that ‘occupy’ demonstrators would come and seize everything at your offices...

Now look. You ran a campaign and it turned into something terrific or a great idea -God bless! But part of the underlying social contract is you don't screw it up for the rest of the party.”
