This is, for lack of a better word, tragic. Scott Brown is clearly the victim of a blue state rebelling against the extreme right wing, of which Scott Brown is not a part of. We in MA know he had the money, but all I can chalk it up to is that he just ran a horrible ad campaign. A lot of ads here of "Scott Brown from the road" - some corny ads of him driving in his pickup trick, which was cool a couple of years ago and talking to "ordinary folks." He didn't spend enough time in these ads defending his record and it also seems the party left Scott out to dry this time around- maybe as punishment for being an independent type, I don't know.
