Scott Brown lost his Senate bid to Elizabeth Warren by eight-- count 'em, eight-- points. It wasn't even close:
His idea of how to beat Warren was to harangue her over her ethnic heritage and mock her for being a professor. Instead of focusing on the issues at hand, he decided to get personal. What a winning strategy that turned out to be.
Then there were those pesky policy positions of his, like extending the Bush tax cuts and continuing oil subsidies.
With a record like that, and a big election loss under his belt, and a nude centerfold, not to mention a questionable tweet or two, one might think it would be wise for Scotty to go into hiding.
Au contraire, mes amis.
Former Sen. Scott Brown (R-Mass.) said Sunday that he was exploring a possible presidential bid in 2016 while touring the Iowa State Fair.
“I want to get an indication of whether there’s even an interest, in Massachusetts and throughout the country, if there’s room for a bi-partisan problem solver," Brown told the Boston Herald. “It’s 2013 — I think it’s premature, but I am curious. There’s a lot of good name recognition in the Dakotas and here – that’s pretty good.”
You know what they say: If at first you don't succeed, fail fail again.
