Best Sore Loser Since Ted Knight in Caddyshack 

Henry Brown

Staff Pick

Facing a very difficult re-election in 2010, then U.S. Rep. Henry Brown announced just after the new year that he was leaving Congress to return home. What wasn't clear at the time was that he wasn't yet done with politics. The congressman went on to challenge fellow GOPer Dan Davis in a primary for Berkeley County Supervisor. The contentious race ended with Davis easily besting Brown. Not surprisingly, the congressman was none too happy about the embarrassing loss. But what was surprising was that he didn't have a problem letting everybody else know it, too. "I guess the people want to be fooled," he said in response to the loss. "And if they like being fooled I guess they have an opportunity at that."
