My Scott Brown Bumper Sticker
Scott Brown thinks just like I do.
He can't say so, but I know it's true,
'Cause he looks so real in those macho photo-ops.
Me and him are the same inside,
So let him take us for another ride,
In his pickup truck down to the coffee shop.
My good friend and colleague, the distinguished musicologist Professor Gordon Ourside, has just released the results of his research into the mental processes of Senator Scott Brown's populist base among middle and working class males here in Massachusetts. With this musical exegesis, he plumbs the depths of that populism through exposition of the essential sentiments that are driving it.
In Utah, Willard Romney has wide populist support from his Mormon base there. Here in Massachusetts, we have Mormons without a second "m", like the fellow quoted here by Professor Ourside, and they form the most significant part of Scott Brown's populist base.
That's not to say that all Scott Brown supporters are morons. Far from it, as there are far too many intelligent right wing cynics, folks like Willard Romney, who want to see him get elected to help the big banks complete the job of enslaving American consumers through debt.
There are also too many of the self-deluded, otherwise intelligent folks who buy into Brown's phony "bipartisan" schtick, accepting uncritically his claim to being a moderate Republican while he votes with the Tea Partisans on the really important issues that affect us, and ignoring the fact that there's no moderate Republican Party in existence anymore, no more Ed Brookes, Frank Sargents, Bob Doles, Richard Lugars.
Meanshile, the fact remains that all the testosterone driven morons here in the Bay State, all the hard core Teabaggers, are Scott Brown supporters, clueless about his true corporatist agenda, and they're the ones you see driving around with Scott Brown bumper stickers on their pickup trucks with rear-window gun racks and on their macho muscle cars.
The fact remains that a vote for Scott Brown means sending him back to Washington to help the national Republican Party enact that Tea Partisan agenda, amounting to nothing more than an ideological right-wing bumper sticker. That's what Scott Brown really stands for as an unapologetic signor of the mindless Norquist anti-tax pledge, and it's not even close to moderation or "bipartisanship."
