    Patrick Kennedy: Scott Brown's candidacy 'a joke'

    Link

    By Michael O'Brien and Jordy Yager - 02/04/10 05:07 PM ET

    Sen. Scott Brown's (R-Mass.) election has been shown to be "a joke," the son of the late Sen. Edward Kennedy (D-Mass.) said Thursday.
    Rep. Patrick Kennedy (D-R.I.) castigated Brown for having pushed to be sworn in ahead of schedule to permanently fill the Senate seat left vacant by the congressman's father's death in August.
    "Brown's whole candidacy was shown to be a joke today when he was sworn in early in order to cast his first vote as an objection to Obama's appointment to the NLRB," Kennedy said Thursday.

    Kennedy was referencing some Democrats' thoughts that Brown tried to bump up his swearing-in in order to give Republicans 41 votes, enough to filibuster the nomination of Craig Becker, a controversial nominee to join the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB).
    Sour grapes, I'd say.

    Not to mention, he's trailing in his polls to a Republican, which has him crapping his knickers right now..

    If the Brown campaign was a joke, then "Marcia" Coakley was the punchline.

    From your post:

    "Brown's whole candidacy was shown to be a joke today when he was sworn in early in order to cast his first vote as an objection to Obama's appointment to the NLRB," Kennedy said Thursday.
    Hmmmmmmm.... seems the boy is a little loose with the truth.

    The 2010 United States Senate special election in Massachusetts was a special election held on January 19, 2010
    United States Senate special election in Massachusetts, 2010 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Massachusetts law requires that each election for Senators be certified, and that the certification can take as long as 15 days after the election date.
    Massachusetts Election Law- the meaning of “duly elected and qualified”

    Now, I took off my shoes and counted it up.... he was supposed to be certified and seated on 2-3-2010.... seems like they were a day late, and a dollar short, again.
    There is no such thing as a “Natural Born Dual-Citizen“.

    Brown is a joke but so is Kennedy. Although the bigger joke is you so called conservatives thinking this statist piece of **** who supported Romneycare believes in small government.

    How's that libertarian campaign working for you? Got anyone in office yet? Yup, it's easy to take potshots from the outside when you have no one in office, isn't it? You don't actually have to govern or make a law or produce much of anything.
