This past Tuesday, Senator Scott Brown (R-Mass.) made news after he sent around a strange fundraising email, which suggested that the "chairman of the state Democratic Party had apparently tried to reach out to" MSNBC host Rachel Maddow, and "coax" her into a run for the Senate seat he currently occupies.
This was alarming news to Maddow, who has no plans to run for anything and has not, in any event, even been approached to consider such a move. And so, she took to the airwaves to issue some Shermanesque denials.
But Scott Brown, he is not letting this go! Yesterday, he appeared on a WAAF radio show and was asked about this whole matter. Brown said, "With all due respect, I'm going to continue to fight and do my job and work hard to do just that. And, er, bring her on. I don't care."
To which Maddow replied: "Bring her on? Bring what on? I'm not running against you!" Indeed, the only thing that has been unleashed upon Scott Brown is the spectral image of the Rachel Maddow that lives in the wild weirds of his apparently overactive imagination. It's like Rachel Maddow is the Tyler Durden to Scott Brown's Edward Norton. So if one day soon, you espy Scott Brown beating the crap out of himself in some parking garage, you'll know what's going on.
