Which is why it's good news that Scott won't be out on the campaign trail bashing the party's brains in for another three months.
Brown's campaign against Warren consisted largely of two elements: First, attempting to become the first man ever to grow his own ovaries; second, reminding Massachusetts voters how much he hates Republicans, too.
Now that Scott's out, perhaps the Massachusetts Republican party could finally get a candidate who - this is going to sound a little crazy - actually likes being a Republican. Maybe is even proud of it, and can explain to middle-class Bay Staters why they might like being Republican, too.
I like being a Republican too. I think a lot of people in Massachusetts would like being Republicans too. And I like Republican candidates who are not afraid to say that they like being Republicans (assuming of course, that they do).
