Regular Guy Scott Brown Has Twice As Many Houses As Mitt Romney

Awwwww yeahMassachusetts Sen. Scott Brown is just a regular guy — a virile human bear rug of a man, ridin’ in his pickup and bein’ a Joe. He also has six houses, which is so many houses it is almost as many as John McCain’s (which were so many he couldn’t remember) and twice as many as Mitt Romney has. (Three.)

That’s cool though, he probably doesn’t live in all of them, because that would be a crazy number of houses to live in. He probably just rents them out, investment-like. And who doesn’t love a landlord! Also, Scott Brown made lots of hundreds of thousands of dollars — spiking at $839,520, about on par with Bammerz, both of them due to yummy book advances — but only gave (at its peak) 3.23 percent to charity, probably because otherwise he might only have five houses, and that would be Sad.

        Kesey used to have a VCR tape for sale (autographed even) that had highlights of the Pranksters and the bus. I never got around to ordering it and as soon as he died I found his web site but the offer was gone. Someone in Austin had a skoolie they had mounted a VW bus atop of which looked really cool.

      yes, sadly the parts of Massachusetts that are like New Hampshire outnumber the parts of Massachusetts that are like Cambridge.

      I know a guy who lives in a trailer and he has three houses. He just keeps puttin a new trailer in front of the old one when he wears it out.

      1. BerkeleyBear

        That's called adding a wing, Dog.

        My wife's grandparents in New Mexico had a plot with 3 trailers and 2 houses on it. They rented one house, a daughter lived in the other, a grandson and his family lived in the Airstream, and grandma and grandpa lived in a doublewide that was attached to the original "manufactured home", effectively creating a "triplewide", although not a fancy one like Huckabee lived in while the governor's mansion in Arkansas was being renovated. And the whole parcel was in the middle of what was basically industrial property.

        I visited once before I got married and wondered just what the fuck white trash hell I was getting involved with. But I went ahead anyways – tribute to the power of pussy.

    Hey Scott! When you think about how easy it is to get all those home mortgages these days be sure to thank Elizabeth Warren for pushing the paperwork to be simplified.

      A suede barn coat? A Suede BARN coat? I paid less then that for the last Burberry's Trench I bought (in 1983).

  2. WiscDad

    You're all just jealous because you don't have a big hairy treasure trail like ol' Scotty. Wonder if Lizzie has one…hhmmmm

  3. Callyson

    Brown owns as much as $50,000 of stock in Exxon Mobil (May 2011 Financial Disclosure Form).
    Brown has invested as much as $50,000 in the Bank of America (May 2011 Financial Disclosure Form).

    What, no BP stock? He could have hit the trifecta of most hated companies!

    (Also, Elizabeth, release the damn six years of tax returns–don't give fodder to their side when you HAVE to win this one for the sake of the country…)

    I do love me some man-bush, but I'm not into white guys, so this picture is always confusing for me.

  5. Blueb4sunrise

    I'd like to have a beer in each of his houses. Not with him, just wanna go in and drink the beer.

  6. Exhausted66

    He sees a world of Haves and Soon-To-Haves so I for one am excited for my extra houses. Someplace to put these damn teenagers.

  7. SayItWithWookies

    Hell, at 800 grand a year, the motherfucker probably still isn't rich enough to be voting in his best interests. Which I guess makes him a regular-guy Republican.

    1. chicken_thief

      Right. I almost feel sorry for him. It must be embarrassing for him to hang out with the "real Republicans", the ones that pay more for a bottle of wine than he did for his pseudo-regular-guy-but-really-Brokeback Mountain-ish barn jacket.

  8. gout

    "but only gave (at its peak) 3.23 percent to charity,"

    Jeez, he let all the ladies see his nads, what more do you want from him?

  9. Chow Yun Flat

    The Massachusetts Democratic Party released a new video this morning portraying him as "a millionaire under that $675 barn jacket."

    His barn jacket = my rent.

  10. hagajim

    A $700 fucking dollar jacket!??! And he's trying to make Warren out as the out of touch elite one? Holy shit!

  11. ThundercatHo

    I'll bet you $10,000 that Miss Lindsey and/or Marcus has that picture taped up inside their closet.

    1. chicken_thief

      Miss Lindsay just lurks in the Congressional locker room, waiting with bated breath…

  12. SoBeach

    "…and twice as many as Mitt Romney has…"

    But to be fair Mitt went on a selling spree after learning that voters might be just a little put off by his nationwide string of mansions. He's down to three now, but only because he wants to be president real, real bad.

  13. bikerlaureate

    I'm so jealous of his success, I'm going to vote the straight DemocRAT ticket just out of spite.

  14. Veritas78

    Seriously, I'm trying to figure out when he earned all that money, doing what. He brags about how poor he was growing up and through college. Then in the early 90s he started snuffling at the public trough as an assessor, then a state rep and state senator, and being in the national guard. None of which adds up to a net worth of over a million, unless his law practice billings in the 80s were kicking ass.

  15. Negropolis

    Pretty good for spending his youth as a wayward, youth criminal. No, really. His daddy sure as hell didn't help him. It's also rather impressive given that he's as dumb as a box of rocks.

    Now, it time to get a real senator back in Ted Kennedy's seat. Scott Brown might be an acceptable choice for some random, rural, New England House seat, but as a senator from the state of Massachusetts? No way, no how. He's an earnest dullard, bless his heart, but he's still a dullard.

    1. Isyaignert

      You said, "bless his heart" like a real, nice person; however, I think I know what it really means in nice Southern speak, and I agree.

  16. Isyaignert

    You can see his pubes in that pic. That is so uncomely, among other things. Ewwwwww!!!!!
