Posted on 08/02/2012 6:35:07 AM PDT by JimWayne

The debates between Sen. Scott Brown (R-Mass.) and Harvard Law Professor Elizabeth Warren (D) will not be civil, the National Journal concludes. Asked by a reporter about some of Warren’s criticisms, Brown cut in, “Blah, blah, blah, blah."

Now this is going to be a fun race because Warren is the left’s Joan of Arc.

I LOVE Browns response.

Brown has not been bad for a Senator who has to answer to MA voters.

He should have responded with an Indian war whoop, clapping his hand repeatedly over his mouth with a “Whoo-whoo-whoo-whoo-whoo!”.

Good for him. Another representative not afraid to treat some people as they deserve to be treated: with open contempt.

I love it. I LOVE IT! Everyone should respond to media nits with similar "respect."

(Are you reading this, Mitt Romney? I really want to try to like you, and telling the Democrat Propaganda Ministry's drones to kiss your Mormon patootie would be a very positive step!)

Excellent response BUT....knowing this state as well as I do that comment will *not* help him.She'll use it in her campaign ads and they *will* resonate.

Sad,but true.

Princess Liawatha *will* take her seat in DC in January.Kinda gives a fella thoughts of suicide!

That was the "conventional wisdom" employed by Marsha Coakley's people, too.

She's going nowhere.

You and I both know that Osama Obama will get at least 60% of the vote here in November.It's all about coattails.There'll be no Osama coattails in most states but there most assuredly will be here.Next January our Congressional delegation will be 11 Rats,0 Republicans.

I respectfully disagree. I don't think people around here are all fired up against Brown . . . what we're seeing here is the lefty push that's causing the wind beneath Granny Warren's sails, and yes, I know that "Granny Warren's sails" bring to mind an awful visual and I apologize for that. Most of this broad's bread is coming from out of state.

I also think Obama is going to kick ass here, but not to the degree he did in '08. He might have coat tails, but they will be much shorter everywhere, even here in the People's Commonwealth.

Brown's people will ridicule Warren, hoist her up on her own numerous petards, etc. The suburbs will skew heavily for Brown, the Happy Valley and urban areas will skew Warren, but I don't believe big enough (outside of fraud) to overcome the burbs.

This election is going to be a major test of Massachusetts "independents" who always claim they vote the person, not the party. One one hand you have a dude like Brown who you might differ with politically, but at least he's a straight shooter who tries to do good where he can. On the other hand you have a self-aggrandizing weirdo who tells one lie after another, INCLUDING lying about her ancestry in order to get a race-preferential job. If this isn't a person over party test, I don't know what is, and the choice is clear: Brown.

The suburbs will skew heavily for Brown..

And which suburbs would those be? Brookline? Newton? Belmont? Cambridge? Arlington? Lexington? Waltham? Wellesley? Needham? Dedham? Quincy?

He may carry Shrewsbury and Bellingham,for example,but I assume you know that more than half the state's population is contained within 128 and we both know what *that's* all about.

The basic difference between Coakley and Warren is that Warren's a better candidate (meaning more effective) and the coattails.

I think Warren will win the limo lib suburbs like Swellsley, etc. . . . all the usual candidates. But other than those locked-in blue burbs, Brown will fare well both inside and outside the 128 and 495 belts. That's where he did well in his first election.

Warren's a sh*t candidate. If I were her campaign manager, I'd be cringing at all her negative attributes that have nothing at all to do with her politics. She puts her foot in her mouth every other day, it seems. She's a demonstrable liar who lied in order to get a job . . . and that's not the sort of thing an independent voter is going to dig.

Have you seen Flynn’s endorsement of Brown?
Half of The old boys network is behind Brown
so he has a good chance at keeping the seat.

Ah yes Boston
Home of the bean and the cod,
Where the Cabots speak only to the Lodges
And the Lodges speak only to God,
But where everyone invariably dodges
in to vote often for the very odd.

Please tell Brown that if he does not beat Warren, I shall drive down and beat him.This woman is weirder than a rainy afternoon in a Provincetown movie theater.

Someone did a poll for 2106 rat POTUS candidates and they put Warren’s name in there. Breathtaking.

I want somebody to get Warren on the record and ask her
“Did either of your two adult children use the Native American ruse for college admission, scholarships, or job preferences.”
And are you willing to release those documents to prove it?

Good luck there.

I find her entertaining to watch, she's a socialist (or a Marxist) with a lecturing professor or even a country school-teacher type demeaner.

Try this Warren logic :

You (business-owner) used our roads to sell your stuff so you can take a (small) hunk of the profits for yourself but you must return the rest of them to us since we were more important than you in the process by consuming them”

And given that its the consumer who makes the economy tick by buying stuff creating demand whether they work or on welfare, it makes sense that they should get the profits not the producer.
