Scott Brown was duly sworn in yesterday, and hit the ground running. That is to say, he started talking out of his ass as if to the manner born:
Newly-sworn Massachusetts Sen. Scott Brown says the last economic stimulus bill did not create even one new job, a claim that most economists would dispute.
Brown made the assertion moments after he was sworn in Thursday by Vice President Joe Biden to the seat held for nearly half a century by the late Democratic Sen. Edward Kennedy.
Convening his first news conference, Brown said the last economic stimulus bill didn’t create a single new job. He added that it may have retained some jobs, but didn’t create any new ones.
Something tells me that Brown is going to be hearing a lot about all the new jobs created just in Massachusetts. Unless, of course, Democrats just throw up their hands and say what’s the bloody point?
