I’m bringing this up only because it came up in the comments a while back, but Scott Brown… the “electable moderate Republican” who lost to a shrieking socialist harridan who fradulently passed herself off as an American Indian … really is looking at a run for the New Hampshire senate seat currently occupied by Jeanne Shaheen… one of the many Democrat seat-warmers who do nothing but eat, breather, and vote as Harry Reid and Chuck Schumer instruct them to. (See also Debbie Stabenow (MI), Claire McCaskill (MO), Kristen Gillibrand (NY), Kay Hagan (NC), Amy Klobuchar (MN).)
Will New Hampshire residents embrace a liberal Republican Masshole carpetbagger? Don’t know. Don’t think so. Don’t really care. These last few days have once again demonstrated how little it matters which party is in charge. The Republicans have shown themselves to be no more serious about fiscal responsibility than the Democrats; and just as willing to lie about it. So, I can’t get myself to really give too many (naughty word)s about whether or not Mitch “$3 Billion Earmark” McConnell gets to run the Senate next year.
Republicans claim they can’t advance any conservative ideas now because “we don’t have the votes.” And if they win the senate in 2014 (BTW, I don’t think they will), they’ll claim they can’t advance any conservative ideas “because we don’t have the White House.” When the truth is, they won’t advance limited Government and fiscal responsibility because… deep down… they really don’t want to.
