He would have lost anyway and will now probably run for governor. Hopefully now Keith Ablow will run!
Don’t discount the possibility, that unlike most politicians, Scott Brown actually has a life. He may not want to scrap and bow for “donations” (aka, bribes) to win an “election” (also called “an advance auction of stolen goods”). He may be sick and tired of having to trim his sails to tack along with the inane electorate of this benighted Commonwealth. Even if he wins, what does he have to look forward to? Mud wrestling contests with the likes of Dirty Harry and Princess Liawatha to spare the thankless electorate from the consequences of their own electorial preferences?
I love Scott Brown, but if he wants to get out of that pigsty, who can blame him?
