Scott Brown’s Strange Behavior
Why would Scott Brown vote against confirming Kagan?
This seems strange and costly. Kagan was going to be confirmed, so the Massachusetts senator’s vote was inconsequential. Brown’s hope for a new term as a Republican in a blue state clearly depends on his ability to persuade voters that he’s independent; this won’t help. Yes, it might be useful to consolidate the wingnut base, but how seriously need Brown fear being primaried by GOP teabaggers in Massachusetts?
