    Here is some additional advice for Sen. Brown:

    If selling your soul to the pro abortion group (pro choice/ pro baby killing) couldn't get you elected in the secular progressive state of MA, give up on politics and get a real job.

    Here is some additonal advice for the soon to be Former Senator:

    1. Don't expect the media to love you, no matter how smart you are or how much sense you make. In fact, this paper, which has your hometown as part of it's base, ran a picture recently of your 2010 election night.

    They couldn't be bothered to find one from 2012. I wonder if they even bothered to send anyone to your events.
    2. Hard work is a dead concept. Stop pushing it. Look at who got re-elected and who took your place and you need no further proof.

    3. The next time, if there ever is, the Tea Party helps get you elected, don' throw them under the bus. They stayed home in 2012, and I think that's part of the reason you lost.

    4. You and Mitt Romney need to learn to fight in politics. You acted like gentlemen when your classless, nasty opponents fought dirty. They also knew how to tap into the ignorance of a new breed of spoiled Americans who want what they want, when they want it, don't want to work for it, and think everything is a "Right".

    One thing Mitt Romney proved, 47% of the Americans are willing to trade their votes for goodies, be they freebees, agenda items (Abortion, birth control, taxing the rich) or out of just plain stupidity. I would chauk up around 5% to who they scared the heck out of claiming that Republicans were going to take away everything, put them in a cardboard box out on the street. In short, the dupes and the fools.

    Keep that in mind for your next run.
