Mostly for the Photos

Sen. Scott Brown (R-MA) spent a week in Kabul "officially" doing National Guard training.
  • He wasn't teaching anybody anything because I guarantee you each and every private serving in Afghanistan knows a hell of a lot more about war than Brown.
  • He wasn't a student because the army wouldn't waste time training a dilettante who was going to be supping tea in DC by the end of the week.
  • He was mostly there to pose for photos dressed in combat gear that will be used extensively in his campaign literature and TV commercials. 
  • Oh, yeah. He was also there to waste the time of real soldiers who had real work to do.
The rigorous army life.
