(Picture of recent Weymouth mayoral candidate and second-place finisher, Bob Monty, contemplating his navel while listening to the incumbent mayor’s very dumb answer to an overly dumbed-down question at a League of Women Voters candidates forum in late October 2011. The “forum” was put on by the same national group who launched vicious attacks against Sen. Scott Brown without disclosing their funding sources.)

If you’ve never met US Senator Scott Brown one on one, you’ve really missed something. I first met him when he was still a Massachusetts state senator at a political event in Swansea. I was introduced to him by Senator Bob Hedlund, his then-fellow senate Republican on Beacon Hill.
At a recent tour event in South Weymouth’s Columbian Square, finalized at The Union Chowder House, Sen. Brown wowed the standing-room-only crowd with his cool deportment and his articulation of what it’s like being in our highly-charged, partisan-divided nation’s capitol.
Sen. Brown spoke about his efforts to represent ALL the people and unlike anyone else in Tinseltown, USA; he has a record to prove it. He told the audience that he needs their support in the upcoming campaign between him and the presumptive opponent who is so WAY out of touch with the values I look for in elected officials. All one needs to do is to look at her glassy, moonbat eyes and then check out her platform to see why this bare-knuckle, street-brawling, finger-in-the-air-punctuating, self-proclaimed rock-throwing OWS doctrinaire would be so wrong for Massachusetts – and for the country.
For my part, I look for character, confidence and integrity and as far as I’m concerned, Sen. Brown has it all. Sure, some Republicans and Tea Partiers are upset at some of his votes but just look at the looming alternative. And truth be told, he’s supposed to represent everyone’s interests, so what has he done wrong?
For all of Brown’s bi-partisan efforts, Obama throws up, literally, one of his wildest-eyed moonbat friends to try to take Scott down. With Wolf-Bain Romney as the presumptive GOP presidential candidate, Obama will probably be returned to office, so Brown will be needed in the US Senate more than ever – or we as a Republic will be in deeper scata.
In a write-up of the Friday event by the LameStreamMedia-Daily Planet’s cub reporter, Chris Somebody – no relation to Jimmy Olson, Clark Kent, Perry White or to “Truth, Justice and the American Way” – well Cubby had these words of wisdom to say: “Sen. Scott Brown said his visit to Weymouth on Friday wasn’t a campaign stop, but his speech to a crowd at The Union Chowder House had all the makings of a candidate stumping for reelection.
“There was the call for donations and volunteers and the Republican senator touting himself as an independent voice in Washington willing to work across the aisle.”
Oh really – a call? Funny, I was there and heard things differently. I heard the good senator say that in the coming months, he was going to need the support of the people in attendance and others just like them.
Sure, support does mean cash, but as the senator wove through the room greeting each person there – up front and personal – the only hand I saw him extend was one of warmth and friendship in meeting his constituents, not for money. Some in attendance were well-known, die-hard Democrats. That begs the question: Why would Democrats be there if they didn’t believe that their interests were being served by Scott Brown? Were they spies like some members of the Fourth Estate in attendance?
When Sen. Brown approached me in his rounds after his introductory chat, our eyes met and our hands extended warmly to one another. We looked each other in the eye as I told him that I met him a few years ago at a rally for one of his friends. He didn’t look away or down or anything but in my eyes; and I did the same with him. It’s often been said that the eyes are a window to a person’s soul – and that’s absolutely true.
Like our eyes, our hands didn’t search for one another either; they met as though it was a daily routine, like Tom Brady perhaps, handing off or passing to a teammate to make a play to help the team win. And we ARE Team USA; that’s what matters to me.
Sen. Brown didn’t ask me for a penny as the LameStreamMedia’s cub reporter would have people believe. He did not have to ask for any support from me at all. At the very least he WILL get my vote – again. And if I have a few bucks and/or a few hours to spare, I intend to spend them on Scott Brown, to help him finish the job he was destined for – to represent ALL the people of Massachusetts.
So one might ask, facetiously, why said cub reporter would see the event solely as a campaign event and not as an opportunity for our US senator to meet with his constituents – as his time allowed – at of all places Weymouth? When did we become so special? Well, one has to consider that Cubby and his editor are flaming liberals as is most of the Fourth Estate intelligentsia. She admitted and bragged as much in the same Friday the 13th afternoon interview she had with Michael Graham on talk radio. So much for media objectivity…
This is the same editor who invited me, as a mayoral candidate, to meet with the Daily Planet’s editorial board just prior to Weymouth’s recent mayoral election; the same editor who wrote of my candidacy that she was “impressed with (my) passion and some of (my) ideas” but gave the Planet’s endorsement to our sitting Democrat mayor in an alleged non-partisan election. She also gave ringing endorsements to Quincy’s Tom Koch and Braintree’s Joe Sullivan, both of whom are of which party? Yeah, so much for objectivity again…
My editorial board meeting was video-recorded and was to be placed on YouTube right after the meeting. But somehow, Cubby forgot to upload it and then took several days off. After a week, I called the online editor to ask why my video was down while the incumbent’s was up and running beautifully – the video that is. After several back and forth’s, the video was uploaded just two days before the election; while Cubby was still AWOL. How special is that?
Cubby also said this in his “objective” report on Sen. Brown’s visit: “(Name redacted), a Harvard University professor and consumer advocate, has emerged as the leading candidate for the Democratic nomination in this year’s election. She has asserted that Brown has done little to address the nation’s economic woes since winning a special election to succeed the late Sen. Edward Kennedy, a Democratic stalwart, in 2010.”
She has asserted? Who the hell asked her for her opinion in the first place – Cubby? – Or his liberal editor?
We all know for certain that Redacted’s and Cubby’s and the Planet editor’s mutual friend, Obama, has a fine record of addressing the nation’s economic woes for the last three years, hasn’t he? And good old Teddy the “stalwart” (synonymous with heroic; brave; courageous; valiant, etc.), he never left a young, female campaign worker to drown, scratching for her last gasp of air in an upside-down car at Chappaquiddick after he probably tried to have his way with her as soon as he got her drunk and she still refused him? Funny how these liberal Democrat revisionists tend to see certain things through their pinko-tinted glasses isn’t it?
