MoveOn.org: We May Have to Pull the Plug on Elizabeth Warren
Breitbart ^ | 5/30/12 | Michael Patrick Leahy

Posted on 05/30/2012 2:33:11 PM PDT by Nachum

The news just keeps getting worse for Elizabeth Warren.

The Washington Examiner reports today that even the left wing group Moveon.org is admitting they may have to pull the plug on the Elizabeth Warren campaign.

Though the article quotes Moveon.org officials as placing their possible abandonment of Warren in the context of an overall decline in contributions, the guarded phrasing sounds on ominous tone for the beleaguered Massachusetts Democrat and candidate for U.S. Senate, who this weekend faces a grass-roots challenge from feisty immigration attorney Marisa DeFranco.

According to this afternoon’s article in the Examiner:

Without a rush of new cash, MoveOn says it will have to give up efforts to elect Elizabeth Warren in Massachusetts, help the recall fight against Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, and energize younger voters who’ve soured on Washington.

“It's like picking which of your kids you love the most. I just can't do it,” said MoveOn in an email plea. “If we can’t increase our budget, we might have to dramatically scale back or pull the plug on some of MoveOn’s most important election efforts this year."

DeFranco’s campaign has yet to raise more than $50,000, while Warren has raised millions, most of it raised from out of state, including Hollywood celebrities such as Matt Damon and Ben Affleck.

But this weekend, if DeFranco wins 15% of the delegate votes at the Democratic Party’s State Convention in Springfield, she will be guaranteed a spot on the September primary ballot.

So there you have it: rich, white liberals are racist and don’t like Native Americans.

I’m not surprised.

I’ll be shocked if DiFranco is on the ballot. Fauxcahontas is handpicked by Obama to take Ted Swimmer’s seat. His Mini Me Gov.Deval Patrick will be burning up the phone lines and spreading money around like fertilizer trying to keep Difranco off the primary ballot

Hehehe...love it. OpFor on OpFor fire.

Warren has been caught with her hand deep inside the candy jar, tightly holding her prized sweets.

But she can't get her hand out because it is so tightly wrapped around the object of her lies and fraud and she just can't bring herself to let it go. She's entirely invested in and believes her own Bravo Sierra.

She's toast.

Liz’s husband was driving home when he picked up a hitch hiking Indian. The Indian gestures to the paper wrapped bottle on the seat and asked ‘what’s that’

‘oh that’s just a bottle of wine I got for my wife’ said Liz’s husband

‘Good trade’ said the Indian

Mini Me Gov.Deval Patrick will be burning up the phone lines and spreading money around like fertilizer trying to keep Difranco off the primary ballot.

The local Dems are already in full panic mode over Saturday's convention. Deval has already come out to endorse Warren despite saying earlier he'd wait until after the convention to announce his endorsement.

The Dems weren't concerned about this Marisa DeFranco getting on the primary ballot before all the Warren scandals but now they realize that if DeFranco makes the ballot, she might actually beat the establishment backed Warren or at least make it embarrassingly close. So they are now desperate to keep DeFranco off the ballot so that the Warren campaign doesn't have to spend the summer spending their campaign money fighting off a Dem challenger (while Scott Brown gets to kick back and relax).

If there was ever a time to drag Ted Kennedy’s widow out and shock the state by running her...instead of Elizabeth Warren, this would be it. The whole Kennedy family might be against Ted’s widow...but I think Warren’s chances are shot down. If she gets more than 45 percent of the vote against Brown, I’ll be shocked.

I was thinking the same thing. Moveon finally found a lefty that's just too effed-up to support.

I don't think we've ever seen that.

"If she gets more than 45 percent of the vote against Brown, I’ll be shocked."

Why?

New Englanders elected Richard Blumenthal to the United States Senate after learning that he lied about his military service.

to recycle an old joke:

Liz’s husband was driving home when he picked up a hitch hiking Indian. The Indian gestures to the paper wrapped bottle on the seat and asked ‘what’s that’

‘oh that’s just a bottle of wine I got for my wife’ said Liz’s husband

‘Good trade’ said the Indian
