Learning from the master

There must be a storm coming, because I sure can't tell which way Scott Brown is blowin' in the wind today. But when it comes to putting a finger to the political wind, our junior senator can't hold a candle to our former governor.

It appears Brown's on-again, off-again support for repeal of the military's don't ask, don't tell policy is on again, not that we get the word directly from Senator Weathervane.
“If and when a stand-alone repeal bill comes up for a vote, he will support it,’’ said Gail Gitcho, Brown’s spokeswoman.
If and when he supports it, that would amount to the fourth stand in Brown's flip-flop-flip-flop journey. And that means Brown needs a less in pandering from the master, our very own Mittster.

As Scot Lehigh points out today, Our Man Myth left Brown in the dust with a pandering trifecta: slithering on taxes, the START treaty and, the grandaddy of 'em all, the health insurance mandate.

And all in just one week.

Brown has much to learn about shameless political posturing. It's a good thing he has such a good teacher to emulate.

Liberal - Scott DID vote to repeal. Just like he SAID he would. Cynical listening is a trap.

Anon, so is cynical political gamesmanship. And it's actually a lesson to all of us on both sides of the aisle.
