The peripatetic Scott Brown (R-Elsewhere) got a little dazed and confused at a New Hampshire GOP fundraiser on Thursday.
From Politico (via MSNBC’s First Read):
Scott Brown: Where am I?
Scott Brown on Thursday night broke a cardinal rule of touring, whether it’s in politics or rock ‘n roll: Get the name of where you are right.
Speaking with reporters while in New Hampshire for a dinner at a local Republican group meeting, the former Massachusetts senator, who has been fueling speculation about a run for Senate in the Granite State, had a momentary lapse about which state he was in when asked about clarifying whether he will run.
The incriminating video (compliments of liberal PAC American Bridge):
Oh, yeah – Downtown Scotty’s ready to Live Free or Die Trying, don’t cha think?
No fan, but sounds like he just misspoke.
However: will never forgive him for wearing red to a Bruins/Habs home game.
State of the news media, Mick.
Sounds like he misspoke and caught himself immediately. I must say, he was deft in then talking about Maine and Massachusetts in addition to New Hampshire. Sounds like a seasoned pro.
Seems fair enough, Mike. But Scott Brown’s gotta hope there’s a lot more fair-minded people like you in America than there actually are.
