Cavuto interviewed Scott Brown today (he touted it as an exclusive interview) and asked him to comment on the tragedy that struck Austin, Texas. The news has swirled around Joseph Stack's suicidal action. Instead of denouncing it as a domestic terrorist act or a lone wolf nut---he didn't hesitate to use it for his own political advantage and said this:

Brown: and I don't know if it's related but you can just sense not only in my election and being here in Washington, people are frustrated. That they want transparency. They want their elected officials to be accountable and open and talk about the things that are affecting their daily lives. So I'm not sure if there's a connection there I certainly hope not..We need to do things better.

If he hopes that there's no connection to his "people are frustrated" routine then why did he bring this up in the first place? He uses this catastrophe to pump up his own election. How sweet. Wow. It reveals a lot about the man, doesn't it?

Can you help us out?
