Mr. Brown comes to Washington

Ok, lame headline, but the newly elected senator from Massachusetts, Scott Brown, arrived in DC today.  Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’re aware that Senator-elect Brown is the harbinger of doom for the Democratic party and the health care reform bills (or a simple consequence of Bush era politics.  It depends on which news channel you watch). Brown is expected to be seated some time next week, but he arrived early to get his office in order.  He’s been running around the Hill, meeting with Senators anxious to catch a glimpse of the conservatives’ great white hope.  Do you feel that? I think Uncle Teddy is rolling in his grave.

Vikki Kennedy, Ted Kennedy’s widow, has put their 7-bedroom Kalorama house on the market according to the Washington Post. The property features 5 fireplaces, 7 bathrooms, a lap pool and in-home gym personally outfitted by Arnold Schwarzennegger.

The couple moved into the Kalorama estate in 1998, and occupied the residence until Senator Kennedy’s death from brain cancer on August 25, 2009.
