For those of you who watch Rachel Maddow on the regular, you probably love her as much as I do. This goes beyond a mere case of the lady hots (which I have for Kate Winslet and, also, Rene Russo circa Lethal Weapons 3 and 4 and Thomas Crown Affair). I really might consider stalking her if I wasn’t so gottdamn lazy.
At any rate, the newly elected Senator from Massachusetts, Scott Brown (who, despite the “pretty pleases with a cherry on top” of Republicans nationwide, failed to derail health care reform–suck on that!) is using fear of a CRAZZZZZZY LIBRUL LEZZER SENATOR!!!111 to scare up some campaign donations:
This past Tuesday, Senator Scott Brown (R-Mass.) made news after he sent around a strange fundraising email, which suggested that the “chairman of the state Democratic Party had apparently tried to reach out to” MSNBC host Rachel Maddow, and “coax” her into a run for the Senate seat he currently occupies.
This was alarming news to Maddow, who has no plans to run for anything and has not, in any event, even been approached to consider such a move. And so, she took to the airwaves to issue some Shermanesque denials.
Rachel unequivocally denied the charge that she is running for office on her show the next day. But Scott Brown continued to flap his gums. When asked about the kerfuffle on a talk radio show, Brown said, “With all due respect, I’m going to continue to fight and do my job and work hard to do just that. And, er, bring her on. I don’t care.”
Rachel’s incredulous response? “Bring her on? Bring what on? I’m not running against you!”
Well, just to drive home the point that Scott Brown is a creepazoid stoopidhead, (and because Rachel is, as previously stated, KICK ASS + WIN), Rachel has taken her grievance straight to the Boston Globe–by way of a full page ad:
And that, y’all, is called KICKING YOUR ASS.
