Scott Brown Hides in the Bathroom

Poor Scott Brown. He doesn't really seem to be enjoying life in his new state. Last week he was mocked (by me anyhow) for a UL story (that seems to have disappeared) on how much he likes retail campaigning. The story is gone, but some of it remains on Brown's blog:

When Republican U.S. Senate candidate Scott Brown campaigned in the state’s North Country last week, he stopped and knocked on the doors of every Pittsburg house that he saw showing one of his lawn signs.
“They said ‘What are you doing here?’?” Brown recalled in an interview with the New Hampshire Union Leader and Sunday News, noting how much he enjoys the state’s famed retail politics, although he admits he was skeptical until he began this campaign.
I hope someone lets him know that knocking on the doors of supporters is NOT retail politics. It's knocking on the doors of supporters. 

At the end of last week, our new resident was campaigning in Carroll County. A reporter from the UK had some interesting moments with the Brown campaign.

I found Brown at a table at a restaurant called Priscilla's, introduced myself as a Guardian reporter and enquired if I could ask him some questions. Brown smiled nervously and replied: "What do you want to ask me about?"
"Hobby Lobby? That would be a start," I said.
“I’m all set," he replied. "We’re enjoying ourselves right now.”
“But you’re standing for Senate. It is routine for journalists to ask you questions and usually the candidates answer.”
“Not without notifying my office."
Brown stood up, walked to the back of the diner, and took shelter in the bathroom. A campaign aide, Jeremy, looked bewildered. He lingered beside me for a few moments, before politely excusing himself – “Nice to meet you” – and joining his boss in the bathroom.
I decided to wait in the parking lot for Team Brown to emerge into the sunlight. Four minutes later, a white SUV swung round and parked next to the steps of the diner. Brown came out with a phone pressed to his ear. "Get in! Get in!" said a campaign worker holding open the car door. Another man asked me to leave. “You’re getting in the face of people that don’t care to talk to you,” he said.

There's more. At a stop in West Ossipee the Brown campaign called the cops. All because Scott Brown didn't want to answer a reporter's questions. 

He's so cowardly that he hid in the bathroom to avoid answering questions, but he thinks he should be our next US Senator?

Tell this wuss to pack his carpetbag and return from whence he came. 

h/t to Peter Sullivan for the Brave Sir Robin reference.

Is the restroom also where Brown goes to hobnob with "kings and queens"?

The folks in Massachusetts had the good sense to give Scott Brown his walking Papers.

Learning from your own mistakes is a good thing. Learning from the mistakes of other folks is Much better. You get the benefit of the lesson without suffering the Pain.

Massachusetts has provided the folks in New Hampshire the perfect example of how to deal with cheap political Hacks like Scott Brown.

This jerk typifies "retail politics" all right. Mr. Brown is on sale and for sale and wants a high priced politician/party to buy him. He should return to modeling and at the same time, perhaps walk out of the closet that most of us think he's been hiding in for as long as the toilet.

For most members of the GOP including this one, the toilet with a super sized Texas flush is where they belong. When you have NOTHING TO HIDE, you hide nothing. Not wishing to answer questions is a good guide to one's total lack of character, morals and values.

Scott Brown would rather hang out where men poop than answer your dumb Hobby Lobby questions

When you're running for public office (or is it now "orifice") there are NO stupid questions particularly those pertaining to Supreme Court rulings. Brown CANNOT answer questions, which is why he takes shits each time he's asked questions that require grey matter commitment.
