Rachel Maddow Lights Into Sen. Scott Brown
Matt | On 26, Mar 2010
This is EXACTLY why I love Rachel Maddow! She speaks truth to power and backs it up with nothing but the facts.
Her latest victim is U.S. Senator Scott Brown (R-MA). If you remember, he was recently elected to fill the seat left empty by Sen. Ted Kennedy’s death last August. Well, Scott is adjusting well into his new place with ‘The Party of No’ on Capitol Hill. He recently sent a fundraising letter to Massachusetts constituents suggesting that MSNBC’s TV host, Rachel Maddow, plans to run against him in the 2012 Senate race. Not true. Maddow is a western Massachusetts resident, but has no plans to face Scott in 2012.
So, Maddow fights fire with .. umm let’s say .. all out WARFARE! She took out a full-page ad in The Boston Globe explaining in detail that she was NOT running against him and never was. She also condemned his actions of speaking ill against his constituents (again, she’s a Massachusetts resident). She set the record straight in Massachusetts largest newspaper. Of course, that has or will follow up with mega-coverage on the MSNBC show’s blog and on the TV program itself. Scotty has declined repeated attempts to appear on Maddow’s show.
I love the trifecta approach to making Scotty look like an ass. GO RACHEL!
