Skip to comments.O’Donnell Eulogizes ‘Lobbyist’ Scott Brown’s Political Career With Elaborate Sarah Palin Analogy

This is Scott Browns full Palin. MSNBCs Lawrence ODonnell used his Rewrite segment Monday night to pay tribute to Scott Browns political career, which he deemed dead today after the former Massachusetts senator and one-time GOP presidential prospect announced that he would be taking a job with Boston law firm Nixon Peabody.
ODonnell reviewed Browns short span in the political spotlight, from his unexpected ascent to Ted Kennedys old Senate seat to his recent loss to Sen. Elizabeth Warren after a hard-fought and very expensive campaign. Since the election, Brown has taken a job as a Fox News contributor and has now accepted the law firm job handling governmental affairs, which ODonnell informed his viewers is code for lobbyist.
Just as former Fox contributor Sarah Palin doomed her electoral chances when she resigned midway through her term as governor of Alaska, ODonnell believes that Browns lobbying job represents the death for a politician ever hoping to run for office again.(continued)

PDS loons. Weak and pathetic.
O’Donnell and his ilk can never take away Brown, a Republican, winning a Kennedy seat. For one brief moment, the voters rebelled and then settled back into apathetic acceptance of having a lying, criminal dunce represent their interests.
The truth about Massachusetts....is that it’s roughly forty percent hardcore Democrat, ten percent soft-core Democrat, forty percent independent, and ten percent Republican. Occasionally, you come up with one decent Republican for a state office and get the independents and the soft-core Democrats to support the guy. If you had to pick one of the toughest environments for a Republican to run an election in...this would be in the top three (put L.A. in there...and Detroit as the other).
Scott Brown’s reelection campaign was incredibly lame, imho. Basically, he was a complete wuss. Instead going to Washington to fight Obama, he promised to get along with Democrats. His opponent was one of the most risible political figures in American political life, a manifest hypocrite and liar and he couldn’t beat her.
His campaign was basically a repudiation of principle (rebranded ‘ideology’) and an embrace of opportunism and compromise. He deserved to lose, even though Warren deserved to lose more. It was the 1962 Mets vs. the 2012 Red Sox. At least the 1962 Mets had the excuse of being an expansion club.
An attractive, smart and successful conservative woman is a mortal threat to liberals.
Scott Brown double Crossed Conservatives.
He was and is untrustworthy, he was just a Democrat in disguise.Conservative Republicans worked hard for him and he crapped on them.An Irish curse on his pathetic career as a lobbyist.
Agree! Brown had long enough to prove the worth of christian principles, and completely failed to do so.He was not a "Palin" type ideologue, he was exactly opposite to that model of virtue.
Romney was a destructive force there.
Romney was the fourth republican governor in a row in the state which prefers republican governors, or did.
Romney did so poorly that he ruined the state party and had to give up his goal of running for reelection, Mitt left office with 34% approval and turned the seat over to a democrat.
