Scott Brown to Warren: How can we trust your character when you lied about being Native American?
Hotair ^ | 09/20/2012 | AllahPundit

Posted on 09/20/2012 7:09:40 PM PDT by SeekAndFind

Via BuzzFeed, five minutes of fun at the start of tonight’s debate. I agree with William Jacobson: In some ways, this is a tough subject for Brown to broach. To make the case effectively he's got to get into details about the debunked genealogy, her dubious explanations for identifying as Native American, and her insistence on doing so professionally at Harvard even though she didn’t meet the professional guidelines for it. That's hard or impossible to do in a 60-second opening statement; as it is, his argument that she's lying amounts to "c'mon, she obviously doesn't look Native American," which is both true and not dispositive. I think he ended up fine by turning it into a “release the documents” attack, which puts her on the defensive, but I wonder what would have happened if she had gotten ostentatiously indignant. It’s always dangerous for a male candidate to attack a woman opponent personally; if she had turned this into a sustained “you’re impugning my family!” lament, the optics could have been bad.

But she doesn’t. She’s actually pretty sanguine about the whole thing. Not sure if that’s proof that she’s a bit more dignified than an average politician, who’d be eager to seize an opportunity to play the victim, or if she’s still too green to detect an opportunity like that when one’s in front of her. But I’m curious to see if either of them revisits this topic at the next debate.

Maybe she should get the phone number to Pelosi’s plastic surgeon and have him raise her cheekbones up a bit. Just an idea.

Boston media already starting to say Brown was too aggressive. Not the case. Warren was far more so. She tried to attack him on women’s issues. Brown. The guy married to a fox with two daughters and is pro-murder. I mean COME ON. Silly fauxcahontas.

My respect for Brown just went up a couple of notches.

No, that's not impugning your family - It's impugning you for your dishonesty and your complete lack of integrity

I know that, but he’s also a Republican in sky-blue Mass.

He’s the best you’ll do in a state like that for a GOP’er.

Its been like that for Pubs up there going back to Henry Cabot Lodge

Brown kicked her in the wigwam on four powerful points:

1. She’s a fake Indian and probably lied to get a job at Hahvahd

2. She screeches for the wealthy to pay higher taxes but never checked the optional higher rate on the Massachusetts state tax form (1/20 of 1% do)

3. She worked for Travelers Insurance (one of those big, meeeean, eeeeevil corporations) to keep asbestos victims from getting a settlement

4. She complains about costs of college while she gets $300,000 in wampum every year for teaching one class and also benefits from a 0% interest loan from Hahvahd. The students pay for all of that.

Brown made me cringe a few times too (praising Hillary) but is still a much better senator than Pinocchiahontas would ever be.

you got me confused now, Rhine.
I thought Scott Brown had an excellent voting record in the state house on Life and Marriage. And endorsement from Mass Citizens for Life. ANd the only senator north of Kentucky to vote “NO” on Kagan.

Now he is running for re-election as “pro-murder”? Weird strategy. Does the pro-life 3rd party guy have a chance to win this seat?

Warren is a member of the Democrat Tribe, formerly known as the Hekowi.

Chief Wild Eagle: [when asked how the Hekawi got their name] Many moons ago tribe move west because Pilgrims ruin neighborhood. Tribe travel west, over country and mountains and wild streams, then come big day... tribe fall over cliff, that when Hekawi get name. Medicine man say to my ancestor, "I think we lost. Where the heck are we?"

He’s pro-choice. I’m not a one issue voter so it doesn’t matter to me. I will vote for Brown and I have his sign in my yard. I simply regard abortion as murder after the first semester.

Her real weakness is when she doubled down and got into more communist detail on how “you didn’t build it”, than Obama did.

As much as I hate it,having a pro-choice MA Republican Senator is better than having a pro-choice MA Democrat Senator if it means Republicans can control the Senate.
