WASHINGTON, D.C. - A stung U.S. Sen. Scott Brown lashed out at U.S. Rep. Patrick Kennedy today for insulting his landmark win by calling his candidacy a joke.
Brown said Kennedys remarks are mean spirited, especially coming on the day he was celebrating being sworn into office.
I was elected and the votes are certified and Im here to do my job. Its unfortunate that he would use mean-spirited comments like that at a time when were just trying to solve the problems of the Commonwealth, Brown said today on his first full day on the job.

As for Kennedy, he faces a Republican rival who is backed by Browns top strategists.
A WPRI-12 poll shows Kennedy with a 56 percent unfavorability rating in his district. Republican challenger John J. Loughlin II, a veteran state lawmaker, entered the race yesterday.
Loughlin said Kennedy is out of touch with Rhode Island voters. We cant afford it anymore, he added.
A Kennedy spokesman declined to comment.
May have to donate to Loughlin....
Patrick Kennedy looks (and seems to act) like a child.
The real joke here is Patrick Kennedy....on numerous levels....just ask his priest. =.=
Was “Baby” Kennedy sober when he said that?
Will Scott campaign for pubbies in the NE? While Palin barnstorms in the South and Midwest? Scott should do CA, OR, and WA too!
Projecting again, eh Patsy??
Well Pampers Kennedy being a senator is a joke so I guess it all works out.
Brown should have ignored the little twerp.
It may be time for “Patches” to ram a police barricade and get a ride to rehab again..
Love God’s timing and placement of events. Scott Brown-runs in Massachusetts - most liberal state of the union - takes Ted KENNEDY’S seat—ted kennedy being the ultimate socialist healthcare crusader —Brown’s victory halts halts healthcare socialization process RIGHT as the horrible bill was about to pass.
Here’s to SENATOR Brown. :)
Some Freepers may disagree with Brown on social issues, but is there a Freeper who can’t appreciate a new Republican Senator with some real stones? I’m starting to think this guy will earn his national profile.
He should have punched him.
“mean spirited” is a term for sissies. You can do better than that, Mr. Brown.
Come on, Brown. You can’t seriously hold Patty to those comments. It was the Ambien talking.
I wonder why Kennedy feels threatened?
Hey Patches, this “joke” is now in the very select Senate, succeeding your own father. Would Patches ever be elected Senator from
RI? He might not even win re-election to the House! Not if those polls give us any indication.
Camelot is over! Or will totally be over once Patrick
