Today Massachusetts Senator Scott Brown happily added endorsements from the State Police Association of Massachusetts, Maine Senator Susan Collins, and former Massachusetts Governor Paul Celluci to his already robust list of supporters from both sides of the aisle. His opponent in the upcoming election, Elizabeth Warren, who has an impressive list of endorsements of her own, including such political and intellectual heavyweights Al Franken,
Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner,
also landed a big one today. Warren’s catch o’ the day is none other than recent Georgetown graduate Sandra Fluke, an up-and-coming lawyer of the type one suspects will eventually give harridan Gloria Allred a run for her ill-gotten nuisance-suit fortune. It’s pretty close to the bottom of the barrel when a candidate thinks an endorsement from someone whose notoriety is due entirely to being the subject of scorn from an overweight headphone jockey is a big deal.
There’s an old saw that says you’re known by the company you keep. If such folksy wisdom is true, then I suggest you vote for Scott Brown.
