Scott Brown in talks with Fox News

Former U.S. Sen. Scott Brown is in talks with the Fox New Channel to join the network, a Fox spokeswoman has confirmed.

She declined to say what role Brown would play at the cable network.

The network recently cut ties with former GOP vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin and former Clinton presidential advisor Dick Morris.

Brown, who lost his Senate seat to Democrat Elizabeth Warren in November, announced last Friday he would not be running in the special Senate election to fill the seat being vacated by Secretary of State John F. Kerry.

Meanwhile, Kadant Inc. of Westford, a paper recycling and production equipment company, announced today that Brown is joining its board of directors.

“During his time in public office, Senator Brown has gained a wealth of experience on local, state, national and international issues and I am pleased that he has agreed to join our board of directors,” Kadant President Jonathan W. Painter said in a statement. “His good judgment and pragmatic approach to solving problems will be a strong asset to Kadant as we continue to grow our business throughout the world.

“Senator Brown’s appointment to our board reflects our strong ties to Massachusetts. Kadant was founded in Massachusetts, our headquarters is in Westford and one of our principal manufacturing facilities is in Auburn. Another former U.S. Senator from Massachusetts, Paul Tsongas, also served on our board of directors in the 1990s.”

Brown said in the Kadant statement: “I am honored to have the opportunity to contribute to Kadant and learn more about the challenges of an international business .... Kadant has been on the forefront of designing and manufacturing equipment to recycle and produce paper for decades. I look forward to sharing my knowledge and experiences and contributing to the future direction and growth of this global leader.”

Brown, a real estate lawyer and a colonel in the National Guard Judge Advocate General Corps, was elected U.S. senator in the 2010 special election to fill the seat vacated by the late Sen. Edward M. Kennedy’s death. He was previously a state senator from Wrentham.

No wonder he's not running.

Oh Jesus, no wonder people call it Faux News. What the hell experience and political insight does Scott Borwn have? He was in the Senate for all of two years.

While on camera, what's his political commentary going to be--the standard Repug bullshit talking point: "Obama is a socialist who only wants to tax and spend."

Okay Scott--now what? Anything else to say?

81 year-old Regis Philbin has been hired by Fox to co-host a sports show.

I'm sure that will help his gubernatorial aspirations.

OTOH, maybe he's going the Palin route and riding his short tenure in office to a big payday through speaking engagements. If that keeps him off the ballot, godspeed.

No surprise

At least he is a lot better looking than that fat toe-sucking pig Dick Morris or that strident loser Sarah Palin.

From softcore to hardcore with a stop-over in the U.S. Senate.

He was a good Senator, too bad people in Mass. didn't have enough sense to see that.

R8 is either an idiot or freeper or both.

Will he pose nude in the Glee calender?

Nah, I suspect R8 is Brown's ol' mom.

The lower-middle class of Palin and Brown is our most destructive, nasty class.

by Anonymousreply 1302/07/2013

This is it for him. He'll go the way of Palin.

He's dumb as a tree stump, things are working out well for him

by Anonymousreply 1502/09/2013

No, actually Fox at this rate is doing better than CNN. Scott Brown grew up relatively poor and if this happens, I will believe it is the real reason that he did not run for senate. He wants a high dollar job and will not bite the hand that feeds him like Palin did.

I hope so for his sake, R16. No one can be as stupid as Palin who is totally clueless. But I hope Scott Brown doesn't come even remotely close to her stupidity or cluelessness.

He certainly doesn't have the gifts to be President and, well, if you can't be president, why do all this political crap?
