      really knocked him down a peg.


      Brown's unsubstantiated assertion that the health bill would send money out of Massachusetts is typical of his approach to discrediting Democratic initiatives. For example, a "cap-and-trade" plan to reduce pollution is the cheapest and most efficient way to combat global warming, ensuring that plants that can reduce their carbon emissions cheaply will do so, while giving others a less costly alternative to retrofitting. But Brown simply dismisses the whole concept, which was pioneered by his fellow Republicans, as a tax. The alternative — imposing strict new regulations on emissions — would cost ratepayers far more. His opposition to trying 9/11 plotters in a civilian court is based on the idea that lawyers would be provided "at taxpayer expense," but the military commissions he prefers also require taxpayer money, including for lawyers. Brown's stands on the issues amount to far less than his animated presentation might suggest.

      Despite his misleading arguments, Brown hasn't hidden his positions, which are largely negative and more conservative than those of most Massachusetts Republicans.
