Scott Brown's declaration of independence

Judging from his victory speech last night, Scott Brown is going to make the I word--independence--a major selling point as he runs against Martha Coakley for Ted Kennedy's old US Senate seat. From the Globe:

Though the primary campaigns were largely cordial, the tenor is likely to change during the general election. Last night, Brown came out swinging, saying the last thing Washington and Massachusetts need is “another partisan placeholder in the United States Senate.”

We can elect an independent voice for all of Massachusetts,’’ he said. “That’s the United States senator I promise to be.’’

 Given the abundance of unenrolled voters in MA, that's a smart pitch. But when I read Brown's quote, I was reminded of something he said a couple weeks ago on Howie Carr's show, which was being guest-hosted by Colonel David Hunt.
