When Republican Scott Brown won the Senate seat in Massachusetts, among the many congratulatory phone calls he took on Election Night was reportedly one from Sarah Palin.
So why, wondered The Atlantic
's Marc Ambinder, did Brown say he had never spoken to Palin?
On Election Night, Palin spokeswoman Meg Stapleton confirmed the call to Politico
. "Gov. Palin spoke with a very happy Sen.-elect Brown this evening and congratulated him on his most historic victory for not only Massachusetts but the nation," Stapleton said.
Our New Approach to Comments
In an effort to encourage the same level of civil dialogue among Politics Daily’s readers that we expect of our writers – a “civilogue,” to use the term coined by PD’s Jeffrey Weiss
– we are requiring commenters to use their AOL or AIM screen names to submit a comment, and we are reading all comments before publishing them. Personal attacks (on writers, other readers, Nancy Pelosi, George W. Bush, or anyone at all) and comments that are not productive additions to the conversation will not be published, period, to make room for a discussion among those with ideas to kick around.
