When Scott Brown endorsed the invasion of Iraq while discounting the path taken to get there we were given a clue. When President Obama embraced Scott Brown's approach to solving the health care stalemate and logjam, was the President channeling his sympathies down long established ties to the Brown empire through relationships established with Michele Obama's employment at the Springfield, Illinois law firm that represented Republican Abraham Lincoln's wife, Mary Todd Lincoln, and which merged in 2001 with the New York law firm of Brown & Wood? What are these connections to David Brown? Helen Gurley Brown? Scott Brown?
The media rarely digs that deeply into family connections within America's power systems and structures which has the lesser power brokers within the Italian, Irish, Latin American, Greek, Jewish, African American and other ethnic systems both admiring and resenting their prominence.
Who could blame a 22 year-old Scott Brown for accepting a leg up.....albeit a naked leg up? No one. Anymore than they can blame Stevie Speilberg for accepting David Brown's help with The Sugarland Express, or Paul Newman or Robert Redford for their parts in The Sting. Again, no one blames them for that. Opportunity knocks and you have to open the door, but of course it's a single file line to the door and not everyone will have the same opportunities. Opportunity knocks and its hand, in this case, is connected to David Brown. He opens it and you have to go through. But not to identify the real source of the power behind the seemingly serendipitous events and to present these events as random, disconnected and unexplainable blessings? Stung again, Henry Gondorff!
