Sen. Brown makes crack about Warren's look on Boston radio show
WFXT-TV ^ | 10/6/11 | Ch 25 Boston

Posted on 10/06/2011 9:12:31 AM PDT by raccoonradio

(FOX 25 / MyFoxBoston.com) - Republican Senator Scott Brown made a crack about Democrat Elizabeth Warren’s physical appearance on a radio show Thursday morning.

According to the Boston Globe, the senator was responding to a crack Warren made during Tuesday's debate.

When Warren was asked about Brown using his centerfold spread in Cosmopolitan magazine decades ago to pay for college, she said she “didn’t take her clothes off” to pay for school.

When the WZLX disc jockey asked Brown for a response, he said "Thank God," which elicited laughter from the DJs.

And, of course, it’s also okay for them to mention that Chris Christie is fat - over and over and over and over and... ...well, you get the picture.

Not to mention all the over the top diatribe about Palin....and the jokes about her young child...

The filth that pretends to be part of this great country's political process can go straight to hell.

If she had, she would not have been able to pay for a JC.

>>In an email after the radio appearance this morning, Brown’s campaign did not directly respond to a question about why the senator made a joke about Warren’s appearance. Campaign manager Jim Barnett said: “It’s elitist of Professor Warren to look down at the decisions Scott Brown made to put himself through college and rise above the circumstances of his life. Scott has fought and scraped for everything he’s got.”

>>Warren’s spokesman had no immediate reaction, but Democrats pounced on Brown’s remarks.
“Sen. Brown’s comments are the kind of thing you would expect to hear in a frat house, not a race for U.S. Senate,” Clare Kelly, executive director of the Massachusetts Democratic Party said in a statement. “Scott Brown’s comments send a terrible message that even accomplished women who are held in the highest esteem can be laughingly dismissed based on their looks.”

No, but she would have accepted a government handout and been proud of it. I am sure it is safe to say that Elizabeth Warren would be all for taxpayers having to pay for college for anyone who wants it without the obligation of a loan. Approve or disapprove of Scott Brown doing those pictures, he still paid his own tuition...his friends and neighbors did not.

What she said wasn't all that nice either. I hope Scott takes a page out of Herman Cain's book and tells those who mock offense at this to lighten up.

She said she “Didn’t take her clothes off to pay for school”.

This COULD be interpreted to mean that someone PAID her to NOT take her clothes off, and that she used the money to pay for school.

The correct Brown response is:

“Sounds like even accomplished women need to play the victim card in order to have a debate. Her defense goes straight to her lack of character. Rather than apologize for her own remarks, she chooses to play victim when the target of her derogatory comments dares respond.”

“Victimhood is not leadership.”

The Occupy Wall St people have “free college education for all” in their manifesto. Really. So all the professors and other workers at a state college (or private?) would work for free so that an education could be provided gratis? Or would there be taxes up the wazoo. The protestors don’t realize that taxes pay for all the “free” stuff (”If you think health care is expensive now, just wait till it’s free”—P.J. O’Rourke)

Agreed.

I’ve done a lot of boxing and still train kids to box and one thing I have always told the new kid coming through the door is that you might have a good punch but do not give a punch in the ring if you do not want one back.

You give it you need to take it something which the left doe snot seem to understand.

PLEASE tell me he did NOT apologize for this. I’ll be most disappointed if he did.

So far he has not. I agree. What I meant was there will be some who will call for him to apologize for it. I think maybe Howie Carr will get him on his show and Brown will say something like “c’mon Howie, was just kidding around here...”

Herald Pulse

19% - Yes, it was over the line

62% - No, she started it

0% - Hey, that’s my favorite issue of Cosmo

19% - Don’t care. The issues matter

Well done, Jim. Pinned the elitist label right on her, and effectively at that.

Technically, yes, it’s improper to comment about a candidate’s looks, but she “opened the door” by “starting it.” She made clear reference, disparagingly, to Brown’s “centerfold” in a campaign appearance. She made herself fair game for at least one witty / catty comeback.

And let me just say: What was the harm in the dang picture that folks (mostly on the hypocritical left) are so obsessed with? His “spread” wasn’t in some skin mag, it was in “People” and was totally rated PG. If I looked like that, and my GF wanted to enter MY photo, I’d probably do it at that age in my life (again, bearing in mind it’s PG).

The taxpaying, lawn cut short, church-going, family-raising, hardworking people, TEA Party member-types are too busy paying bills to understand the Left does not adhere to rules or ethics. Akin to the legal way Muslims can lie to non-Muslims or Saul Alinsky says there is nothing wrong with even murder (implicit) that the “ends justify the means” with a push to Marxism is a totally foreign concept to most FReepers and GOP voters.

The Left has nothing, they have disfunctional, wasteful and utterly corrupt Government with a failed President and they attack a mother of five children with a fury and threat of violence so intense, they write libelous books and make sexist and mysoginist comments they shriek in horror if ever made by any non-Liberal. Their media shows the incredible double-standard and omission by an agenda-driven far-Left machine that includes Hollywood, unions and the grivance groups, coupled with the open purse of Government to pursue Green dreams and open border nightmares...foreign aid to our enemies and a Welfare State that makes Keynes blush.

The Left knows we abhor violence and chaos, so they will push us because they don’t care and they know we do.

in this case Brown was like a large mouth bass and that punchline was like a big ol’ juicy nightcrawler just sitting out there.

Too easy.
