No sooner had former Massachusetts Sen. Scott Brown (R-$$$) signed on the dotted line with the Fox News Channel than he was on-air discussing Barack Obama’s State of the Union address with Sean Hannity, who is to reasoned discourse what plaid is to Bermuda shorts.
Dialogue as described by Politico‘s Dylan Byers:
“Hey Sean, great to be on and hello to you and your viewers,” Brown said after Hannity welcomed him the show.
“Well, we appreciate you being here,” Hannity said. “I’ve got to get one political question out of the way, you knew I’d throw this in — why not run for Kerry’s seat?”
Brown noted that it isn’t Kerry’s seat — “it is the people’s seat, as you remember” — and said he decided he didn’t want to be involved in yet another race as well as a Congress that’s “really dysfunctional and extremely partisan.”
“To do five races in six years and raise another $30-$50 million and then and participate in a Congress that’s really dysfunctional and extremely partisan — I felt I could make a difference being on this show and doing other things,” Brown said. “I plan to stay involved certainly, but, you know, I’m going to continue to work and be part of the election process back home and other elections around the country.”
Whatever the hell that mean$.
Brown also managed to plug his insider trading moment with Obama at the 2012 SOTU. From Campaign Outsider’s Memory Lane Vault™:
Let’s see how long Brown can dine off moments like that in the Fox News canteen.
