You know how close the Hepalumph Party came to truly embarrassing themselves the other night? These guys are really enamored of new faces. Word is that there was some ferocious lobbying to have Scott Brown give the Republican response to the President’s state of the union address. Whah? You heard that right. Scott Brown.
Here’s a guy who vaulted out of obscurity – even deeper obscurity than Sarah Palin, when the Alaska governor was annointed by the desperate John McCain. Not even confirmed to the Senate yet, and there were very serious discussions about having this novitiate give the response. Instead they chose a Governor who has been in office for…did I hear eleven days? I guess the shelf life is a month. After that, politicians are part of the establishment, and we can’t have that now, can we?
