Is it only me that thinks this or was Scott Brown, the newly elected Senator from the State of Massachusetts, hiding his light under a bushel before election day? I got the feeling during the campaign that he was an empty suit, a pretty boy shill for the party leaders, who would do their bidding in every important way.
I don't get that feeling any more. He seems like a strongly progressive guy on cultural and civil rights issues and mainly interested in pursuing fiscal austerity in government. I don't think he has any intention of rolling over for the pedochristers. You know the kind I'm talking about. The ones that teach Sunday school but who you wouldn't trust to help your little child in a bathroom stall. My Congressman is exactly like that. I really hate them.
I like Scott. I'd trade guys like him one for one with the kind of Republicans in Congress now, all day long. Hell, I'd trade away a lot of the welfare state Democrats we have now for guys like him.
