MassUniting & Scott Brown @ Lowell Spinners
September 4, 2011 by Tony Posted in Politics, Lowell 3 Comments
When Scott Brown held a fundraiser at a Lowell Spinners baseball game where he handed out bobble heads of himself, MASSUNITING activists decided to head to Lowell to cheer on the Spinners and remind Brown of his bobble-head voting record. Check out this video to see what happened when Brown was pressed with tough questions from his constituent.

It’s called groundswell.
Though Brown, who faces reelection next year, has fallen a bit from the lofty perch of public approval he had enjoyed, he remains quite popular for a Republican in a traditionally Democratic state. Nearly half of respondents, 49 percent, said they view him favorably, compared with 26 percent who view him unfavorably. A Globe poll conducted last September showed him with 58 percent approval and 21 percent disapproval.
“He’s really a fish out of water in a Massachusetts environment – any Republican is,’’ said Andrew E. Smith, director of the University of New Hampshire Survey Center, who conducted the Globe poll. “He actually is doing pretty well, given that environment.’’
Thanks for posting this video Tony. I was recently given one of these “Bobble Head Browns” (alas not autographed!) and will have it at the Saturday September 10th Greater Lowell Area Democrats (GLAD) breakfast meeting for display and comment. Bobble Heard Brown is in its original box and the box makes for interesting reading!
I subscribe to Scott Brown’s monthly e-newsletter and there is never anything of substance in them. It’s all about how he went to this place and that place and talked with people (in mostly controlled settings) bla bla bla. Nothing to speak of on the legislative front, which is what you’d expect from a Republican who has to worry about reelection in Massachusetts.
Funnily enough, whenever his newsletter comes my account warns me that “This message looks very suspicious to our SmartScreen filters, so we’ve blocked attachments, pictures, and links for your safety.”
Wise move, Windows Live. Wise move.
