Scott Brown Enrages Tea Partiers, Campaigns for Rob Wittman

2
Sen. Scott Brown's coming to campaign - actually, raise money - for Rep. Rob Wittman (R-1). The only problem is, if you check out Brown's Facebook page, the "tea partiers" are extremely pissed at him for his announced decision to vote for financial reform legislation. Here's a sampling, typos (e.g, "rhino" instead of "RINO," "you're" instead of "your", etc., etc.) included.

*"Dear Senator Brown, You are a deceitful man, a "rhino"... a snake in the grass..... you're kind will pay in November... ..l., _ ,.l.."

*"Senator Brown, you are a disgrace to the GOP. You are part of the problem. I hope the voters of Mass. vote your sorry butt out and replace you with a REAL fiscal conservative. You are part of the reason why the Tea Parties exist! Electing you was a HUGE mistake."

*"Scott, you are just another RINO. I supported your campaign and I now regret it. I wish I had my $ 100.00 donation back."

*"Scott you have let us down. 2012 is coming sooner than you think!!!"

*"You have lost my support."

For what it's worth, I strongly support Brown's decision to back President Obama's financial reform legislation. I strongly encourage him to also support comprehensive, clean energy and climate legislation. Thank you Scott Brown, and enjoy the 1st CD of Virginia!  Ha.

Krystal Ball to Convention Delegates: “Democratic values are American values”

Democrats helped Krystal Ball (D-Fredericksburg) shed the presumptive nominee label by selecting her to be the official democratic nominee from Virginia's 1st Congressional District at a convention this past Saturday.

Ball wasted little time in drawing a sharp contrast between her and Congressman Rob Wittman (R-Montross).

When we passed Social Security they threatened to repeal it, when we passed Medicare they threatened to repeal it and now, now that we have passed health care reform they are threatening to repeal it. Well I have one message for Eric Cantor and John Boehner and to Rob Wittman. Let me say this clearly. I don't care what your buddies in the health insurance lobby want we are not going backwards!

In a big announcement this morning, Starbucks has introduced two new beverage sizes to its U.S. stores: the Plenta and the Micra.

Hugh Mungis, Starbucks VP of Volume issued the following statement:

Whether customers are looking for a large or small size, the Plenta and the Micra satisfy all U.S. and Canada customers' needs for more and less coffee. Our size selection is now plentiful.

Republicans have responded by saying "Hell No, You Can't" and blasting this as a direct result of the recently signed health care reform (HCR) legislation.
