Scott Brown gets a book deal

New Massachusetts senator didn't have to wait long before being paid to write a memoir

In politics, you don't have to do much to merit a memoir. Just ask newly sworn-in Sen. Scott Brown, R-Mass. He's barely had time to do anything in the Senate, but he's writing a book anyway.

"Senator Brown is honored and humbled to be approached by many people who want him to tell his inspirational personal story about his life leading up to his election as a United State Senator from Massachusetts," Gail Gitcho, Brown's communications director, said. "He will tell his story in a book in hopes of providing insight and encouragement to others and also to ensure that the record is complete and accurate."

Maybe the best part -- Robert Barnett is helping Brown with the deal. Barnett's a lawyer who helps all the players in Washington with their books, including President Obama.
