From The Boston Globe:
PHOENIX – US Senator Scott Brown, driving past palm trees and American flags, brought his political star power to Arizona today to stump for the 2008 GOP standard-bearer, John McCain.
McCain is locked in one of his toughest reelection fights of his career, and was hoping Brown could bolster his conservative credentials. McCain’s chief opponent in the Republican primary, former congressman and talk radio personality J.D. Hayworth, has been criticizing McCain as too liberal for Arizona.
Both Brown and McCain railed against President Obama’s health care plan, and the possibility that Congressional Democrats will attempt to pass it through a reconciliation budget process.
“Scott and I just returned form [sic] trying to do the Lord’s work in the house of Satan,” McCain told the crowd. McCain called the plan “Chicago-style sausage making,” and said, “We’re going to fight, and fight, and fight.”
Hmmm, what is it, Capt. Underpants, that makes you think of sausage when Nekkid Scotty is around? And then fantasies of fighting? Maybe wrestling and rolling in the mud and getting all hot and sweaty and dirty? Lindseypoo is going to get jealous!
Brown accused the Democrats of engaging in “political chicanery and parliamentary maneuvers.”
Afterward, a crush of people approached the freshman Massachusetts senator, taking photos with cell phones and asking him to autograph their McCain stickers. One man presented him with a baseball, and Brown took out a sharpie and signed his signature along with #41, to represent his vote in the US Senate.
“Bless you!” one woman yelled to him.
“Save us, senator,” another said to him quietly. “Save us.”
You know, this could backfire. Next to Nekkid Scotty, Capt. Underpants is going to look boring and lifeless. Oh well, stay the corpse, or however that saying goes.
“I didn’t know until I showed up that Scott Brown was going to be here,” said Mark Doebele, a 33-year-old high school teacher from Phoenix. “I was like, ‘Holy cow. Scott Brown’s here?’ Don’t tell Senator McCain this, but that was almost more exciting.”
See? Told ya!
McCain was the first US senator to take Brown’s calls when he was a long-shot candidate running for the seat left vacant by the death of liberal lion Edward M. Kennedy. Brown has since called McCain his political role model.
“He brings star power. Kinda like Sarah Palin does, you know?” McCain said in an interview. “He’s a national figure. People react to him in the most positive way…He comes in a position of significant influence, in our party and in the senate.”
Yeah! And look how much good Princess Sarah did ya, Capt. U, you betcha!
McCain introduced Brown, who was wearing a shirt and tie but no jacket, as “one of the great political heroes in political history.”
All you have to do to be a great political hero is to beat someone who ran a crappy campaign? Or do you just have to show up at political events wearing clothing?
“I think we all understand political gratitude,” Hayworth said in an interview when asked about Brown coming to campaign for McCain. “I look forward to working with Scott in the United States Senate, and I’m glad he’s getting a nice trip to Arizona. We’re going to have beautiful weather for him.”
