He might be a real-deal Senator now, but Scott Brown hasn't gone all Washington on us. The Massachusetts Republican stayed true to his truck-driving, everydude persona by doing a shot of Irish whiskey and swilling a Bud Light draft at the Dubliner pub this evening to celebrate his swearing-in.
Brown, accompanied by his wife and an entourage of besuited friends,
settled in at the popular Senate-side bar just moments after leaving the
Capitol following his very sober oath-taking. But it was all good times
after that HOH tipsters report that the crowd at the bar toasted Brown and serenaded him with a rousing rendition of "Danny Boy."
"You aren't going to make me sing, are you?" Brown asked the
merrymakers. The reply from someone in the crowd: "Nah, we're going to make you dance!"
United We Dream protesters carry a mock coffin to the office of Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, in the Dirksen Senate Office Building on Monday, July 21, 2014, to hold one of their "funeral services for the Republican Party" due to GOP positions on immigration. The immigration reform group visited several other Senate Republican offices to hold similar funeral services.
