Scott Brown
Sen. Scott Brown. Political genius.
You'd think Sen. Scott Brown's (R-MA) campaign would have learned by now that fundraising emails sent to supporters don't just go to supporters, and what they write in them is fair game. But apparently not.

His latest misguided missive was sent to national Republicans. It makes Brown—who likes to sell himself as an independent man, willing to reach across the aisle to solve the nation's problems—sound like your average tea partier.

"I know there are several other GOP campaigns to support, but this race is THE battleground for the United States Senate—the only sure hedge to a potential second term for President Obama," Brown wrote in the appeal.
So the only thing standing between the tyranny of a second Obama term and freedom is Scott Brown, and he promises unabated obstructionism if reelected. Put that with his recent very Republican votes, for the Blunt amendent to allow employers to take birth control coverage away from their workers; filibustering the Buffett Rule; and now this. "Independent," "bipartisan" Scott Brown is just another Republican, as partisan as they come.

That'll go over well in Massachusetts. The Elizabeth Warren campaign gets that, and is using it in a fundraising pitch of their own.

Chip in $5 to Elizabeth Warren. Help fight Republican obstruction.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

      nothing less than a Republican.  The push is on to keep all Republicans in the Senate and pick up a few seats that the Democrats can't keep - enough to give the Republicans control.  Brown will whine, he'll beg, he'll lie, he'll do anything the Republicans tell him to do to oppose the president and stick to the Republican goal of winning.

      He's just a Republican.   We should expect him to vote like one.

    The drawing caption calls Scott Brown "political genius." I thought that was Allen West! Come on, now. There can't be two, can there?

    Oh, wait. I forgot Louis Gomert. Yeah, I guess I don't disagree after all. I just have to accept the fact that the Republican Party is full of political geniuses.

  •  I tried to donate through the link you provided, (3+ / 0-)

    but it insisted on taking my piddling contribution and splitting it up six ways. I cancelled, because I wanted to support Warren, but dKos wouldn't let me do it my way. I will send a donation directly to Warren's campaign next time I get an e-mail from her.

    Sometimes this automated world is frustrating. I wrote to my local Catholic hospital to tell them that I cannot contribute to the foundation for their new hospital wing, even though our community needs it, because their bishops won't respect women's reproductive rights. Shortly after that, I received a letter from them apologizing and promising to take my name off their lists. Today, I received another urgent letter begging me to give them money. I think I'm still on their list.

    And Debbie Wasserman-Schultz at the DNA has been told so many times that I won't contribute until they tell me whether they are restoring the 50-state strategy that the message should have reached someone by now, but no. They just keep dinging me in a useless effort to wear me down.

    DKos, please fix that damned donor form, as I bet others are doing the same thing I did.

    But he has a pickup truck and a penis, so he'll beat Elizabeth Warren like a drum because my state has many positives, but is horribly incredibly misogynist.

  •  Scott Brown must go just like Scott Walker. (0+ / 0-)

    Scott Brown must go so that the Democrats can get a filibuster proof Senate.

    The big picture here is to re elect President Obama, achieve a filibuster proof majority in the Senate; with 64, 65, 66 or 67 seat advantage, to guard against idiot Democrats that are bought by rich guys and do not like President Obama.

    It is imperative to take the House back and send Boehner and Cantor packing.

    It is an absolute must to shift the Supreme Court back to the center. Citizens United must be overturned through a Constitutional Amendment.

    We also need to take as many Republican controlled State Houses back as we can and start to reverse the damage they have caused.

    Let's see what we can make happen...
