    My opinion: What an asshole.

    For the record Scott:

    It's a pretty stupid strategic maneuver unless he is trying to speak to his extreme base and not Indes, who he should be courting.

    This only goes to show that the real Scott Brown is something that the voters should see before election day.

    The Republican Party needs to appeal to the center and moderates and independents. We cannot win with the wingnut reactionaries. We need to meld conservatives with the center, marginalizing the whackos to the left and the right. I think a ticket of Romney and Huckabee in 2012 can do that, as long as we drop the wingnuts and tell Rush to take a hike.

    He was pretty nasty in the clip of a debate I saw. If there's a big turnout, this guy won't win and it is getting to be very hot.

    That is the problem with history. It comes around and bites you in the ass.

    Does this affect their qualifications for the job? Does this mean that Cokesley has suddenly got a clue?

    I’m sure some will try to dismiss this as an isolated stray remark. But it’s clear if you watch the video that there’s a broader context: Brown is clearly aligning himself with the Limbaugh wing of the GOP, in which slurs along these lines are standard fare. And as Steve Benen points out, claims about Obama’s illegitimacy were an integral part of the birther craziness.

    So will this actually make political waves? If Brown were a Democrat, it would instantly be a huge scandal. The outrage machine would be working overtime. And the news media would, of course, pick it up.

    This is the crackup- "If Brown were a Democrat, it would instantly be a huge scandal." Oh Yeah, did you happen to see the huge scandal made of Harry Reid's racist comments about being a ligher skinned negro. That really inflamed the democrats, it inflamed them so much that they circled the wagons on it.:lol::lol::lol::lol:

    I don't think the wedlock issue is what Brown was driving at; it was the Muslim connection to BHO's father. The smear may well bite Brown on election day.
