As soon as any political opponent even tangentially attacks Massachusetts Sen. Scott Brown (R-Professional Nice Guy), it’s a mortal lock that he’ll immediately turn up in a TV spot wearing a sweater and doing the MISTIA (More In Sorrow Than In Anger) thing.
Brown’s kitchen sink spot in his 2010 U. S. Senate special election race vs. Martha Coakley (D-Coaklied) [with voter reaction graphs overlaid].
That sweater-clad everyguy became the iconic image of Brown in his upset victory over Coakley.
Brown’s new TV spot, released yesterday in response to the first negative ad in the current Senate race from challenger Elizabeth Warren (D-Warrened?).
Kicker: “I’m the same Scott Brown I’ve always been . . .”
And that’s the same sweater he’s always worn when he makes this pitch.
