Remember Scott Brown?

John Fetterman sure does!
=============

Flashback to 2010 …

Obama had a filibuster-proof 60-40 Senate.

Then, Teddy Kennedy died, making it 59-40 with a vacancy.

No problem for Obama … quick special election in Dem-heavy Massachusetts would restore 60-40.

But, a stud with a pick-up truck got the GOP nomination. His name: Scott Brown.

Brown had sex-appealing charisma and an aura of “authenticity”.

Did I mention that he was a Republican?

Sure, he talked some about GOP-leaning positions, but his bumper sticker simply read:

Scott Brown #41

Not his jersey number, his potential position a filibuster restorer.

It worked!

Fast forward to today…

Have you caught any of Fetterman’s brief and “to the point” campaign pitches?

Post-stroke, he has a tough time articulating his policy positions.

That’s probably a good thing since his signature priorities are freeing criminals from prisons and opening public heroin injection sites … neither of which is wildly popular these days.

But, he has a strong plus factor for Biden-loving Democrats:

“I’ll be the 51st Democrat in the Senate”.

As long as he can reliably pull the Senate voting lever, nothing else really matters, does it?

Against all odds, it worked for Scott Brown.

Might work for John Fetterman.

Perish the thought…
