BMG Exclusive: Scott Brown thought maybe Obama was born out of wedlock  —  Born out of wedlock?  Really??  —  Well, yes.  During (or maybe shortly after) the 2008 Republican convention, Brown was on a panel discussion (aired on the now-defunct CN8 cable news channel) about Sarah Palin.

Massachusetts Race Tests Staying Power of Democrats  —  BOSTON — There may be no better place to measure the shifting fortunes of President Obama and the Democratic Party than in the race being fought here this weekend for the Senate seat that had been held by Edward M. Kennedy.

MA SEN Shows Similarities To '09 VA GOV  —  No matter how you look at it, MA is simply not VA when it comes to politics.  But don't tell that to state Sen. Scott Brown (R) and AG Martha Coakley (D), who seem to be mirroring their Old Dominion counterparts in multiple ways.

Palin gets 100G for mag cover  —  Bristol, earned an eye-popping $100,000 for their new In Touch Weekly cover, sources say.  For just eight hours' work at her own home, Palin pocketed nearly as much as her $125,000-a-year salary as Alaska governor.  It seems her decision to quit her political role is making big financial sense.
