    So you're saying people who routinely use their truck on a regular basis to do things that a truck is better at than a car, thus using the truck as a tool, is a "real" truck owner?
    I'd say people using a truck for it's designed purpose are not using it as a fashion accessory or as a toy.

    But that alone doesn't tell you anything about them except that they own a boat. It definitely doesn't mean they are "in touch" with middle America-types.

    Remember when GW Bush used to cut brush at his ranch and people said, "Hey, I'd like to have a beer with that guy".

    I never understood that. Bush was born into a wealthy and powerful Northeastern family, has two degrees from elite Ivy league universities, grandpa was a Senator and his dad was a congressman, CIA Director, Vice President and President.

    How many guys clearing brush have that background?

    Conversely, Scott Brown grew up in a broken home, went to juvie, paid for college through ROTC, spent 30+ years in the National Guard and spent the majority of his political career in local and state government. So he went and got a pick-up truck to look more blue collar, so what? Campaign trick. It worked, apparently.

    This is much better indicator of having the potential to be in-touch with a regular person than something as superficial as owning a truck, IMO.

    To be fair, I think he owned the truck before his campaign. I think it was just being used as a "sign" of his being in touch with the blue collar crowd, which I find bizzare.

    It kills me that the republicans are so full of hubris over Brown. It probably was not the truck at all. I think the voters would have voted for Satan in this election.

    This may even be a blessing in disguise for the democrats. Maybe it will make them wake up and stop trying to be republicans. I really don't see much difference between the two parties. Obama has almost as many republicans working for him than bush did. He makes me sick the way he kisses their arses.

    He promised change. Well, that's all I have left in my pocket. They are all like cockroaches. You kill one and another one is there to take their place.

    As for myself, I have recently joined the Modern Whig Party. I think it's finally possible for third party canidates to win some elections. If they lie, too we will throw them out too.

    Keep on truckin.

    His other vehicle is probably a Mercedes Benz with a nazi bumper sticker.

    The whole pick-em-up-truck thing is what made me decide to donate to his campaign. If he woulda had a dog, of dubious blood line in the back, I would have doubled my donation. If had, along with the dog, a gun rack in the back window, I would have trippled it; quadrippled it, had there actually been a gun in the gun rack.
