“Senator Brown has turned into a Bay State Birther, for goodness’ sake!”
-Gov. Deval Patrick

We’re all well aware that Republican Scott Brown has made divisive attacks and mudslinging the centerpiece of his campaign, opting for character assaults over policy debates.  Brown has been so over-the-top with his attacks that Governor Deval Patrick has dubbed Brown the “Bay State Birther.”  Governor Patrick isn’t the first to make this connection; numerous media outlets have already likened Brown’s mudslinging to the far-right-wing fringe “birther” movement.

To drive the point home, ProgressMass has assembled a new video, entitled “Republican Scott Brown: Bay State Birther,” illustrating that Brown’s character assaults are just as divisive and repugnant as any of the birth certificate-related comments spewed by Sarah Palin, Donald Trump, or Mitt Romney.  Watch for yourself.

Republican Scott Brown’s brand of divisive mudslinging might be the norm for a Fox News interview featuring Sarah Palin or Donald Trump, but it doesn’t belong in Massachusetts.

Let other residents of the Commonwealth know just how low Scott “Bay State Birther” Brown is willing to sink by Sharing the video on Facebook and Re-Tweeting it on Twitter.  Send the link to your family, friends, neighbors, co-workers, and classmates.  Help hold Republican Scott Brown accountable for his negative attacks.

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.
