    Scott Brown snubs Sarah Palin, bags Tea Party rally

    U.S. Sen. Scott Brown, whose stunning victory in January was fueled in part by Tea Party anger, has snubbed the fiery grassroots group and declined its invitation to join Sarah Palin Wednesday at a massive rally on Boston Common, the Herald has learned.


    Brown’s decision to skip the first big rally in Boston by the group whose members are credited with helping him win election has some experts saying he’s tossed the Tea Party overboard, as he prepares for re-election in 2012.


    “He wants to mainstream himself before the election,” said Larry Sabato, a University of Virginia political scientist.
    I have only one thing to say - Brown gets it, and as a result, he won't have an albatross hanging around his neck.

    The teabaggers can crow all they want, but it was independents and moderates who will swing every major election.

    The moderates elected Brown. Not the the fringe nitwits and teabagging morons.

    Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.

    The more of this Brown guy I hear, the more I tend to like him. From the beginning I have liked the guy. Maybe republicans will take notice and quit trying to demonize the other half of the country.

    I have long said that it wasn't so much the GOP message that Americans weren't buying. It was their messengers and methods of delivering said message. Next, they need to get a message that doesn't sound like a pundit pointed sound byte.

    The extremos on the far right, who seem to get all the press these days, are NOT very well liked no matter what they tell themselves. The GOP need's to cut 'em loose. The trick is to not lose the votes of the whackos they DO alienate. It will be a very tricky balancing act. For without the whacko vote, they won't stand a chance either.

    But I like Brown. He may be the guy that goes up against Obama next election. Stranger things have happened. You betcha!

    It makes sense, since he won an election of attrition. People didn't vote because he was Republican. They voted because he wasn't Democrat.

    Believe it or not, the New England area has a lot of moderates on both sides of the fence. I sure don't blame him for avoiding the political backlash that comes from standing alongside Palin. It'd be like a liberal campaigning with Michael Moore - nodding in agreement behind closed doors, but a poison among constituants.

    If things get worse and it looks like Senator Brown can win I think he will run. If things get better and it looks like President Obama will get re-elected I bet Senator Brown will hang back and get a bit more experience. From the few times I have listened to him he seems to be a smart guy when deciding the best chances for victory.
