|"One of the kings I met even gave me his crown. Great burgers too by the way."|
The Massachusetts Republican made the comment during an interview Thursday on WTKK-FM, after being asked if it was time to move beyond questions about Democratic rival Elizabeth Warren’s claims of Native American heritage to discuss other issues. Brown renewed his criticism of Warren, but also defended his work as a senator.
“Each and every day that I’ve been a United States senator, I’ve been either discussing issues, meeting on issues, in secret meetings and with kings and queens and prime ministers and business leaders and military leaders, talking, voting, working on issues every single day,” Brown said.
When asked for further explanation about the secret meetings, a campaign spokesman said Brown was “referring generally to private meetings with foreign and domestic leaders.”
“He misspoke when he said kings and queens,” Brown campaign aide Colin Reed said. The head of the state Democratic Party called on Brown to release a list of his secret meetings.
“If Scott Brown rests the substance of his campaign on meeting with royalty, he should tell the people of Massachusetts who he met with and what they talked about,” said Massachusetts Democratic Party Chairman John Walsh.
Hey it's a simple mistake. You meet a guy with a name that you can't pronounce, who speaks in an accent you can't understand, of COURSE your going to assume that he is the king of “Ubeki-beki-beki-beki-stan-stan" or some other place that Herman Cain could not remember, right?
After all it's NOT like he said this over an over again, or anything.
Oh, okay well THAT'S embarrassing. Can you believe this buffoon now holds Teddy Kennedy's old Senate seat?
So Massachusetts, ready to elect a COMPETENT Senator now?
It should not even be a contest.
(H/T to the Political Carnival.)
Update: By the way, for those who are not sure about how this race is going, there is a LOT of support for Warren, and her campaign contribution numbers are the best in the country:
Since September, she has hauled in nearly $16 million, more than any of the 1,613 candidates officially running for Congress on the March deadline, according to the Center for Responsive Politics.
Things are looking pretty good for just about EVERYBODY'S favorite candidate for the Senate.
