    sterotype of a certain Massachusetts 'guy'.  everyone in Ma  probly has met one of them.

    And he plays up that image to the hilt.   the Truck,  the Sports talk..  the I'm with you and all that shit.

    Also,  you know since the Democratic Party is so dominent statewide here ,  that his election in 2010  was also a bit of protest vote.  

    •  Almost everyone I grew up with is that guy. (3+ / 0-)

      Hell, I am probably that guy. And although I no longer reside or vote there I can tell you with 100% assurance, that he absolutely identifies with a huge part of central MA. And no, they do not think he is a phony.

    •  but also he is hiding his Republican creds. (3+ / 0-)

      His signs  dont say Republican for Senate....

      " An independent voice"    : he's for us!"   is the crap on them.

      He's running away from Romney  and  even running a ad showing him with President Obama!

      its even captioned so you dont miss the President saying 'good job".

      There are ads from  "Democrats  for Brown"  Like ex Boston Mayor Ray Flynn ,  so he is putting out everything to show he is a 'moderate'  Republican  like ex-Gov william Weld was perceived to be.  all with a wink and a nod to the real right wingers here to let 'em  know its just for show.

      I hope people arent fooled.  But as I said above  he comes across like a 'Real' Massachusetts guy.....

    •  Protest against what? eom. (0+ / 0-)
