Scott Brown—a McCain Republican?
Paul C. writes:
Brown and Palin are campaigning for McCain. Business as usual.LA replies:
Ok. But it’s been clear from the start that Brown is not a conservative. Not only is he pro Roe v. Wade, he has no problem with homosexual “marriage.” And when we remember how he and his wife let their daughters dress at his victory speech, it’s clear that this is not a conservative family.Paul C. replies:
You’re correct, of course. It’s never been a question that Palin was a dolt and Brown a man of suspect motives who oozes a creepy sort of sexuality. The issue has been what has been read into their popularity and success. They were supposed to be the direct manifestation of widespread, popular revolt against Washington DC and all that it stood for—and that means Obama, in particular. VDARE.COM, in fact, has positioned Brown’s recent victory as a sort of awakening for White people.LA replies:
I have to protest your over-the-top descriptions of Palin and Brown. To call Palin a dolt is to verge on anti-Palin bigotry. The fact that she’s not an intellect doesn’t make her a dolt. And your description of Brown, I don’t know what is your basis for saying that. Maybe you’re thinking of the actor who played him in that vulgar skit on Saturday Night Live. And why accuse him of suspect motives? He seems pretty straightforward about all his positions.February 10

The answer is “yes.” McCain gave a large cash donation from his PAC to Brown’s campaign. Also, in his post-election speech, Brown specifically thanked Senator McCain, which I took to mean that he probably also got advice from McCain. McCain’s PAC also donated to Kirk’s campaign in Illlinois. I think McCain’s plan is to get RINOS elected and it’s also the reason MSNBC has had a couple of blips about McCain being the leader of the Republican party. MSNBC/McCain collusion? He’s been the MSM’s favorite Republican for years. Plus, McCain is obviously rebuilding a new, like-minded base.
