Nice Work Mister Scott

So, now he’s a US Senator, how is Massachusetts special election winner Scott Brown settling in?

Not convincingly, it seems: Brown has joined many of his GOP colleagues in trashing the Stimulus Bill, and has put his foot in it with some style. He declared on February 4 that “The last Stimulus Bill didn’t create one new job”.

Fortunately, the nice folks at Politifact.com have been on the case, and have concluded that, although estimates vary, the Stimulus Bill has been responsible for creating somewhere between a million and a million and a half jobs.

Given the disparity between their numbers and Brown’s, they have awarded the new man the coveted Pants On Fire award. Welcome to the world of scrutiny and accountability, Mr Brown.
