My new United States Senator Scott Brown is all sworn in, and rolling up his sleeves to get to work. Only twelve days after his stunning upset victory over Martha Coakley in the Massachusetts special senate election Brown made the rounds of the Sunday talk shows last week.

This just doesn’t sound right to me, and it didn’t sound right to the Web site PolitiFact. Here’s what they had to say:
