Scott Brown IS Inappropriate

Yesterday, as part of the Democratic Party's victory lap after successfully passing a sweeping reform of health care insurance, President Obama addressed a gathering of Iowa citizens and praised the many life affirming provisions of the new Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010.  President Obama also called out the Republican Party, the Party of NO, for their obstructionist tactics all through the year long legislative process.  The Republican Party's cynical call for the repeal of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 on the day after the law's passage merited the President's ridicule as he called for Republican lawmakers to "Go for it".

Massachusetts Senator Scott Brown (R-MA) called President Obama's remark "inappropriate".  Really?  Really, Mr. Brown, why is it inappropriate for the President to identify an issue of importance and identify the actions of some as inconsequential and a happy distraction for Democrats in the 2010 and 2012 elections and call those Republicans and Republican teabaggers out for their stupidity?  Really, don't waste any money supporting the Party of No and any candidate silly enough to proclaim that the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 is unconstitutional.

What really is inappropriate, Senator Brown, is your national fundraising letter identifying Rachel Maddow, an MSNBC news program host, as your opponent in your re-election campaign.  Oh, yes, your stupid hateful letter doesn't directly make the claim that Rachel Maddow will be your opponent.  We know how those letters are written.  Half truths and innuendo have been the usual means to whip up a controversy, real or imagined.  Your letter does just that while smearing Rachel Maddow.

That is inappropriate.  And, really really creepy.
