Remember Scott Brown? Mass political career is over. Done.
Now that he's on Faux News, Scott-o has zero possibility of ever winning statewide office again. Mass voters will never vote for a Fauxian.
We can finally put a fork in our Commonwealth's Republican Party. Unless Liberals take over their party, or we run Lee Mercer Jr., Republicans will be deep in the wilderness for some years.
Actually, even Mercer could probably beat 'em at this point.

5. I'm not too sure about that...
although I hope you are correct.
I look at it as totally free, televised, campaign exposure
where he gets to profer his opinions as a political "expert"
without rebuttal. And if he does run for office (let's assume
governor) he avoids the equal time statutes for every day
he is unannounced as a candidate. That's what Palin was
hoping for, and Fox was more than happy to play the game.
Damn -- He even gets paid to be there !
My mom is one of those gray-haired hordes who watches
Faux News, along with her neighbors, here in the Bay State.
She thinks Scotty is just wonderful, and Elizabeth Warren is
a "prune face".

6. You might be right, but he has no record as either a rep or senator
in the state. That helped in a federal senate race where personalities carry weight. He will have to explain why he would be a good governor when all he did was cash a check in the house while he was there.
