Scott Brown begs for 2012 campaign contributions to help stop a Senator Rachel Maddow
Edited on Wed Mar-24-10 10:42 AM by SemiCharmedQuark

Sen. Scott Brown (R-MA) is asking voters to donate to his 2012 campaign so a certain "liberal MSNBC anchor" who lives in Western Massachusetts won't win the office instead. "Rachel Maddow has a nightly platform to push her far-left agenda," Brown writes in a fundraising letter. "What about you?"

Brown says the Massachusetts Democrats may be trying to recruit her.

Friends,

Its only been a couple of months since Ive been in office, and before Ive even settled into my new job, the political machine in Massachusetts is looking for someone to run against me. And youre not going to believe who they are supposedly trying to recruit liberal MSNBC anchor Rachel Maddow.

Rachel lives in western Massachusetts, and recently it was reported that the chairman of the state Democratic Party had apparently tried to reach out to her in an attempt to coax her into a race against me. You can read about it here.

The political season never ends, which is why I need your continued support. While my opponents strategize on how to defeat me in 2012, Im going to continue to speak out against higher taxes, more spending and greater government control in our lives.

I relish being an independent voice in Washington, one that doesnt march in lockstep with the rest of the Washington crowd. The Democratic Party bosses in Massachusetts disagree. They want a rubberstamp who will vote for their plans to expand government, increase debt and raise taxes. Someone like Rachel Maddow. Im sure shes a nice person I just dont think America can afford her liberal politics.

Rachel Maddow has a nightly platform to push her far-left agenda. What about you? Id like to encourage ordinary American citizens concerned about the future of their country to get more involved in our government. I hope you were encouraged by my victory to become more politically active, maybe even become a candidate for office yourself. We can continue to push our movement forward by running for office, joining in rallies and petitions that challenge President Obama and Nancy Pelosis healthcare legislation, supporting campaigns against the tax-and-spenders or by donating time and money to office-holders and candidates who will restore the principles of our founders.

Im grateful you are with me. Thanks again for whatever support you can provide me, and I look forward to joining in further victories with you down the line.

Sincerely,

Scott Brown
United States Senator

Apparently he got this fact straight from his ass. Too bad, Rachel would be a fantastic senator.

Edited to include entire Scott Brown begging letter.

What an asshole.

What a republican.

That's redundant, isn't it?

Republicans are crap fact checkers.

4. I love her where she is but she would make a damn fine Senator.
It is no wonder Brown uses her to fund raise. She has influence and is a great danger to hypocrites..

5. The only way the Republicans win...
...is striking fear in the hearts of total imbiciles.

There's a big population of imbiciles from which to tap, so never
underestimate their outrageous and inaccurate assertions.

Many gullible simpletons eat this slop up and hang on their
every word. Look at the popularity of Beck.

7. True. Unfortunately I just had a conversation w/ my cousin wherein he spouted off
just about every talking point Brown nails here. It's like Colbert said: RW talking point bingo

14. Her show is the best.
I really do like keith, but I recommend Rachel's show to everybody. She's so calm and thorough. She destroys arguments quietly without shouting and takes on anyone.

I wonder if she would ever consider it? She would absolutely win.
