Yesterday Scott Brown's widely reported and hilariously ridiculed claim that he is such a man of substance that he regularly has "secret meetings with kings and queens and prime ministers and business leaders and military leaders" immediately brought out his spokesman to clarify that Brown "misspoke when he said kings and queens."

It must have all been in Brown's imagination. Deeply, deeply embedded in his imagination.

Yesterday was the fifth time Brown made this assertion (that has been recorded, anyway).
“Meeting with kings and queens, prime ministers, and business leaders. All they talk about is jobs.” - 11/18/11, Wakefield Chamber of Commerce

“And it's funny. To the queens and kings, prime ministers, all the way to the poorest farmers, all they talk about is jobs.” - 08/15/11, Martha's Vineyard Chamber of Commerce

“And all they talk about folks, from the world leaders, to the business leaders, kings and queens, prime ministers, all the way down to the poorest farmers is jobs. All they want is jobs.” - 08/10/11 Berkshires Chamber of Commerce

“All they talk about is jobs everywhere. Everywhere. Business leaders, queens, kings, all the way down to the poorest farmers.” - 08/15/11 Sandwich Veterans Meeting

Okay, it's crazy enough that he's been talking about his delusions of meetings with royalty for a year now. But to say that the most important thing to all those kings and queens and prime ministers is jobs? Really? That just makes the secret meetings with royalty like 10 times better. They come all the way to America to talk to a junior senator—who isn't even on the Foreign Relations Committee—about job creation, because nothing in the whole wide world matters more than jobs in America.

Delusional or just really, really dumb?

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.
