Sunday Night Funnies: Scott Brown Exploring Run for PresidentPosted: August 18, 2013
OMG!! This is hilarious! Scott Brown, Senator for two short years before getting trounced by Elizabeth Warren, is thinking about running for POTUS. Hahahahahahahahaha!!!!
From the Boston Herald: Scott Brown in Iowa tests presidential waters
Former U.S. Sen. Scott Brown told the Herald he is looking at a possible 2016 presidential bid today as he hit a well-worn stomping ground for Oval Office hopefuls – the Iowa State Fair.
“I want to get an indication of whether there’s even an interest, in Massachusetts and throughout the country, if there’s room for a bi-partisan problem solver,” said Brown, who has been meeting with top Republicans nationally and last week hosted a Fenway event for Republican National Committee members. Brown indicated he isn’t close to deciding whether he will run. “It’s 2013, I think it’s premature, but I am curious. There’s a lot of good name recognition in the Dakotas and here – that’s pretty good.”
Wow, the Dakotas? Well that’s a couple of electoral votes.
The Des Moines Register reports on Brown’s visit to the Iowa State Fair.
Between stops for bacon-wrapped ribs and a hammy photo with the super bull, Scott Brown didn’t introduce himself to many Iowans.
Brown, a Republican former U.S. senator from Massachusetts, strolled for over two hours today through the Iowa State Fair, an annual 11-day event that’s a magnet for politicians who might want to run for the White House.
Few Iowa fairgoers recognized him as he ate his very first corn dog, drank a couple beers at the Bud Tent, shot a bunch of photos of his wife, Gail Huff, posed in front of the fair’s main attractions (the butter cow, a deep-fried Oreo stand, the Big Boar) and did three local news interviews.
“It’s very easy to go up to people, like, ‘Hey!’ But people don’t want that, like that lady,” Brown said, referring to a woman he talked to, without introducing himself, outside the Clydesdales barn. “Word will get out that I was here, and she’ll tell friends. You keep coming back, keep coming back, keep coming back and you build up that familiarity. I hate it when politicians show up at places right before an election and that’s it. It’s the only time you see them. I’m from the philosophy, you show up as much as you can throughout your cycle so that it’s more like, ‘Hey, Scott, where you been?’ versus, ‘Hi, who are you.’”
That’s an interesting approach. I guess….
The last we heard, Brown was planning to run for either Governor of Massachusetts or Senator from New Hampshire. Now it’s the presidency. This guy sure does have a giant ego.
What can I do but laugh uproariously? Hahahahahahahahahaha!
This is an open thread.
