Sen. Scott Brown: GOP needs a truck, a barn coat, and a Cosmo center-fold to win in 2010

MA GOP Senator Scott Brown said in his speech at the GOP Convention in MA on Saturday that candidates should be themselves. No truer words will ever be spoken. Brown's success in getting elected was just that -- genuine. In meeting with the people of MA he didn't pretend to be something he wasn't or change his comments to fit who he was talking with. He was himself. He jokes, laughs, and yet is serious about issues that are facing this Country. What you see is what you get with Scott Brown and every candidate running should be the same way.

How Scott Brown handled the Cosmos centerfold speaks volumes about the man. He didn't hide it, he met the issue head on which is what all candidates should do for any issue from the past instead of trying to spin. IMHO no one should have had an issue with the centerfold, but then I still have the original Burt Reynolds centerfold in Cosmos somewhere in storage around here.

After the GOP took major hits in 2006 and 2008 in Congress, we have noticed that today's leadership in both Houses are telling it like it is which is so refreshing. They are standing up for America and what is best for the Country day in and day out and not wavering.

Time for Republicans to put an end to any candidate sticking his finger in the wind to determine what he believes that day or for that speech. If a candidate cannot be true to themselves on who they are, then don't run as we will see right through you and are in no mood for a candidate that doesn't know who they are and is not steadfast in their beliefs.

There is no better example for our candidates to follow then Scott Brown who represents the people of Massachusetts not the lobbyist. We want every Republican candidate to stand up and say this is what I believe and if you agree with me on 80% of the issues, then I am likely your candidate. That was the Ronald Reagan way and what we need today -- honesty from our Republican candidates.

Sen. Scott Brown was the star of the Massachusetts Republican State Convention last weekend, and offered a 'blueprint' for victory to Republicans running for office in 2010:

Number 1: You’re going to need to buy yourself a pick-up truck. And if you’re really serious about winning – you need to get a green 2005 GMC Canyon and put 200,000 miles on it by campaigning around the state.
That’s 28,000 miles per month until Election Day, folks!

Number 2: Get yourself a barn jacket and wear it. Everywhere. Wear it all the time ...on the campaign trail, on dates with your spouse, to bed, out jogging, to church, in front of your kids’ friends. Just wear it everywhere and never take it off.

Number 3: And, I take this last one VERY seriously. Don’t be shy about pulling out those old Cosmo pictures from almost 30 years ago. That even means you, Charlie Baker!
After drawing some laughs from the crowd, Sen. Brown offered his real prescription for victory:

Seriously, the best advice I can give our candidates is, be yourself. Speak from your heart, look people in the eye, give them honest answers based on fact and without the usual political rhetoric. If you can do that, and hold fast to the principles that have built and guided our nation from the very beginning, then you will have a solid shot at winning.
