It’s clear by now that former Sen. Scott Brown (R-Elsewhere) will do pretty much anything to grab a piece of the media spotlight.
Today it’s this story in the Boston Herald:
It was a political twitter tornado.
When Scott Brown posted a picture of himself with a beaming U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) yesterday, the social media site lit up — especially after he followed it up with a one-word addendum: “Maybe.”
Maybe a GOP ticket in 2016?
Yes, and maybe the hardreading staff will win the Nobel Peace Prize for Two-Daily Town.
The best part of the Herald piece is the Scott Brown Shuffle when he was asked what he meant by “Maybe.”
“In the form of an update, as i was rushing to get a plane I responded — maybe to a charitable appearance request. That’s what I get 4 rushing,” Brown [tweeted].
Conclusive proof the Scott Brown truly doesn’t know what he’s talking about.
Of course Brown has had Twitter mishaps before, the most memorable being his midnight rambling last January.
It is said that the act of texting (or, by extension, tweeting) automatically removes 10 I.Q. points. Those are points Scott Brown can ill afford to lose.
The Boston Globe, for its part, was smart enough to ignore the story altogether.
