Scott Brown speaking at rally.
Scott "no apologies" Brown.
Sen. Scott Brown has definitively answered the question of whether he has any shame. He doesn't. He has a brand new ad out hitting Elizabeth Warren on her claim to be a Native American, pushing an issue her employers have uniformly debunked.
Titled “Got Caught,” the ad features members of the public suggesting the undocumented claim is untrue, with the first speaker calling it “a lie.” [...]

A Globe review of Warren’s legal career, which included two dozen interviews, also found a wide range of professors and administrators who recruited or worked with Warren who said her ethnic background played no role in her hiring.

But he still released this ad. And that's after a week in which Brown has been pummeled for refusing to apologize to the Cherokee nation for the racist behavior of some of his senior staff at a recent rally. And after his only public statement on that event was basically to blame Elizabeth Warren for making claims that forced his staff to be racist assholes.

Goal Thermometer

Now, because he has absolutely nothing else to run on and refuses to engage on his record or on the issues, he's pushing the Native American thing, again. He's trading away his only advantage in this race—his image as a good guy—for cheap hits.

That's truly a sign of a desperate, losing politician. Not to mention a colossal asshole.

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.
