Scott Brown
Don't let the barn coat fool you. He's actually the next James Bond.
Ooooh, look at little Scottie Brown, all important in world affairs and shit.
“Each and every day that I’ve been a United States senator, I’ve been discussing issues, meeting on issues, in secret meetings with kings and queens and prime ministers and business leaders and military leaders, talking, voting, working on issues every single day,” he said.
Seriously. That's what he said when asked about the fact that his campaign thus far has been somewhat lacking in substance. (At least he didn't change the subject to local sports.) Later, his spokesman was forced to clarify: “Senator Brown was speaking generally about private meetings he has had with foreign and domestic leaders.” Ah, so all his meetings with royalty aren't actually "secret," they're just "private."

I guess you have to be royalty to get a meeting with Brown. When a bunch of students tried to meet with him to talk about his vote against summer jobs programs, they couldn't even get into the public building Brown's office is in.

He's also apparently so busy meeting with kings and queens and prime ministers that he just doesn't have any time for constituents, even for town hall meetings.

Either Scott Brown is secretly critical to world affairs (particularly since he's not even on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee) or he has a serious problem with delusions of grandeur.

9:59 AM PT: Yet another clarification from Brown's spokesman.

“He misspoke when he said kings and queens.”
So he just imagined he was meeting with royalty? That doesn't really make this better for Brown.

1:32 PM PT: Check out Scott Brown's close encounters with royalty at Scott Brown's Jubilee!

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.
