Idiot of the Week (5/21)
Now it is one thing to cave when the actual residents of your state pressure you to change your vote in their best interest, but in this instance, Scott Brown was duped by the White House.
This from the Daily Caller:
So why did Brown buckle, after voting to uphold the filibuster on Wednesday? For starters, he received 3,000 phone calls to his office over the last week, all of them by supporters of Organizing for America, the apparatus that sprung out of President Obama’s campaign for the White House that is now housed inside the Democratic National Committee.
These AstroTurf phone calls, in addition to Harry Reid calling Scott Brown a liar and the President’s repeated “bully pulpit” rants about Republican obstruction, left Brown with only one choice; to sycophantically reach out for Reid and Obama’s approval by way of absolute surrender.
Because he caved to phony pressure; Scott Brown is the Red Dog Idiot of the Week.
