Pick-up driving carpet-bagger Scott Brown is not only running to unseat Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (D-N.H.)...he's biking, hiking, swimming, climbing, shooting hoops and, for all I know, playing mumbledepeg.

According to Tim Murphy over at Mother Jones:

"Nothing like starting off the morning with a triathlon," tweeted former Sen. Scott Brown on August 10th.

Again.

The Massachusetts transplant is gearing up for his campaign against Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (D-N.H.) this fall by literally running for office. He's also biking. And swimming. And hiking. And taking jump shots. If it's a weekend, you can expect to find the Republican candidate tweeting a photo of his latest feat of strength. Things might not work out for Brown in November, but Brown will almost certainly work out.

See Scotty's bizarre 'look-at-me-I'm-sweating' series of tweets HERE.

So, what is Scott 'Hooray For Romneycare/Boo Hiss Obamacare' Brown trying to tell us? Is it the classic Roman ideal of 'mens sana in corpore sano' ('a sound mind in a sound body') ?

Or is it something else? Like...oh, I dunno...'Hey, I'm busting my balls here, people; can a vapid carpetbagger get some love?'

Or is it 'I'm so very butch, send me to Washington and I'll kick some ass'?

Or is he just a narcissistic putz?

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.
