#Bqhatevwr : An incoherent word w/ ‘HATE’ in the middle; sums up many right-wing ‘thoughts’! Good riddance & hate-whatever 2 u ScottBrown!
In wine there is truth. And possibly in late-nite ‘drunk Tweets’ as well.
Those of us in Massachusetts who endured Scott Brown’s mean-spirited and ultimately failed Senate race are not surprised to see the word ‘HATE’ pop up in Brown’s much-mocked Dark Night of the Soul tweet.
Yes, we all tap wrong keys at times– but for me, there was no mistaking the vicious level of real ‘hate’ in an anti-Warren website put up by the official Brown campaign last year that looked more like the work of a Cyber-Bully than a sitting Senator.
Complete with juvenile name-calling and distorted photos of Warren, the site attacked Warren’s character in strikingly personal terms. Yes, Warren’s own campaign fought back hard, but it focussed on the issues and especially on Brown’s own voting record.
Note to the GOP: It’s the ‘HATE’ in the middle of many a muddled right-wing ‘thought’ that is turning off mainstream voters.
Along with many MA voters, I breathed a sigh of relief when Brown declared he would not run for the newly vacated Senate seat– an abrupt move that has angered many in his own party. I hope the GOP candidates who do run will learn from Brown’s defeat that playing the ‘hate’ card of personal attacks tends to backfire.
Good riddance to hateful campaiging– and ‘bqhatevwr’ to Scott Brown.
