Massachusetts may blush red on occasion, but its blood is definitely Democrat blue. That said, Scott Brown may have revealed his true colors…
When asked for his "model Supreme Court justice," Massachusetts Republican Sen. Scott Brown paused as if he knew his answer might get him in trouble. "Ah… that’s a great question," Brown replied. "I think Justice Scalia is a very good judge."
Some in the audience booed and Democratic challenger Elizabeth Warren wasted no time trying to capitalize on Brown’s admiration for the conservative justice.
Elizabeth Warren also wasted no time whatsoever making this face during his answer. After being rapped on the knuckles for naming the most conservative judge since William Rehnquist, Scott Brown then named several other justices, including Sotomayor. Unfortunately, the question wasn't "How many Supreme Court justices can you name?" If that had been the question, he would have gotten a C+ instead of an F.
But then again, Scott Brown is nobody's student.
