Thanks for the page. This is really good news, because Scott Brown is by far the strongest Senate candidate that the MA Republicans could field.

The last thing we need is blue states sending wing nut-enablers to the Senate.

So he does have his eye on the Governor’s office.

From the article, the Senate seat schedule is most unpleasant. Special election shortly, then the normal election for that seat would be in 2014. It makes sense for Scott Brown to avoid that, especially if he is thinking of going after the Governor’s office.

But Mitt Romney should have poisoned the well thoroughly on that front, unless the state-level Democrats have really screwed up since Romney.

It’ll be interesting to see what happens in MA.

Democrats run one of the most corrupt state legislatures in the country, which is probably why voters have been electing Republican governors since Bill Weld. Deval Patrick is the first Democratic governor since Dukakis.

So I’d say Brown has a very good chance at the governship if voters forget what an asshole he acted like during his campaign against Elizabeth Warren.

I was afraid of that. The Democrats really need to clean up their act. Usually, voting the bums out is an adequate response, but electing Republicans is very painful these days.

I had to get to slide 9 for James Michael Curley…thought they forgot about him :)

Reading Tip O’Neill’s autobiography and there are several funny stories about his run-ins with Curley.
