As some of you may know, Sen. Scott Brown (R-MA) has been fundraising lately on the false premise that he must defeat future challenger Rachel Maddow. The rumor of her looming candidacy apparently originated with that most sage and trustworthy of sources, Facebook. The most surprised of his constituents to hear that Ms. Maddow was running was, well, Ms. Maddow.

Although Ms. Maddow has been taking time on her MSNBC program to quite hilariously deny that she has any intention of running against the Senator, she took the added measure of running a full page ad today in the Boston Herald, reprinted here on the MSNBC site.
Maddow: "I am not running against Scott Brown. I never said I was running against Scott Brown. The Massachusetts Democratic Party never asked me to run against Scott Brown. It's just not true. Honestly. I swear. No, really."
