Mean old Scott Brown

posted at 1:01 pm on September 22, 2012 by Jazz Shaw

A week ago we talked about the evolving media storyline which predicted that the Massachusetts Senate race between Scott Brown and Elizabeth warren might be turning nasty. Apparently the press corps in the Bay State is bound and determined to see this script play out come hell or high water. There’s plenty of hand wringing and pearl clutching on display in Worcester, as concerned observers worry, “Can Brown Afford to Keep Going Negative?”

Senator Scott Brown held nothing back in his debate against Democratic hopeful Elizabeth Warren on Thursday.

The Republican attacked Warren for her claims of Native American heritage, her status as a law professor at an elite university, her plans to raise taxes on businesses and the wealthy and her legal career, which included representing Travelers Insurance in a case against asbestos victims…

But as the Brown campaign continued to hammer on the Travelers Insurance case Friday morning, it seemed clear that the incumbent Senator was shifting gears as the race heads into the final stretch.

Apparently, even mentioning Warren – as opposed to ignoring her and her own attacks – is considered “negative” now. There was more than a little of that sentiment showing up during some of the reviews of his debate performance in other quarters. Huffpo attempted to lump Brown into the “War on Wimmins” story by noting that he had co-sponsored legislation that would allow any employer or insurer to deny women coverage of certain health services, including birth control, for “moral reasons.” .

Going even further, he is accused of not supporting Warren’s old boss.

Brown and Warren also sparred over the fact that Brown voted against confirming then-Supreme Court nominee Kagan, who supports abortion rights and is the former dean of the Harvard Law School, where Warren is a professor. Warren said she thinks women should be able to count on Roe v. Wade and that she was “really surprised” when Brown cast his vote.

“I’m sorry I didn’t vote for your boss,” Brown retorted. “There is a litmus test for me. A judge has to have good judicial character … and also has to have courtroom or judicial experience.”

Oh, dear! Nasty stuff there indeed. How “negative” can Brown go? Here’s the video of the entire debate for those of you who missed it and have some time to kill this weekend.

She’s a…girl…you know. Girls are weak. Girls are victims. They need a nanny state to protect them. Don’t be mean to the weak victimized girls! And, yes, running against a girl in a political campaign is…mean. Handing a girl a Senate seat without making her run for it? That’s nice. Be nice to girls!

Everyone in her family thought they were native Americans, as a child, she was given eagle or chicken feathers instead of an allowance, and they all enjoyed tribal dances on holidays. As a teenager she learned she descended from a Bolshevik tribe where nobody but the entire tribe built stuff and she was taught to scalp individuals, with the Chief’s permission, of course, who refused to be assimilated into the collectivist tribe.

Elizabeth Warren (D) and Sen. Scott Brown (R-MA) Debate

Boston, MA
Thursday, September 20, 2012
****************************

A poll conducted for WBUR, the Boston TV station, gives Elizabeth Warren (D) a slight edge over her opponent, Sen. Scott Brown (R), for the U.S. Senate seat from Massachusetts. Warren, the former chair of a Congressional panel overseeing TARP, leads the first-term senator by 5 points (the poll has a 4.4pt margin of error).

The candidates held their first televised debate tonight, Thursday, Sept. 20, on WBZ-TV, the CBS affiliate in Boston.

Warren recently delivered a well-received speech at the Democratic Party convention in Charlotte, North Carolina. Sen. Brown won the late Sen. Edward Kennedy’s seat in a special election.

We enjoyed Brown’s HAMMERING of Lizzy Warren very much.

I did think for a minute in the end she was going to cry about how she had to take that lawyer job with Traveller’s just to get ahead.

It was shocking to see some liberal publications announced Lizzy the winner, (ACTUALLY!) because she attacked big oil, she was really the winner. If you watched the whole thing, she just repeated a few stock lines over and over.

The Democrat party is so far removed from mainstream America.

Warren is so far to the left she might as well pin a hammer + Sickle on her pantsuit and start quoting from from the Manifesto. Her love for the liberal culture of death and theft (abortion and wealth redistribution) make liberal Republican Scott Brown look like Regan reincarnated in comparison.

A lot of times language like this is mere rhetoric, meant to make a point, but in Warren’s case, it is the truth. I watched Warren, during her address to the Democrat Convention, grow fangs and start to slaver as she got rolling with the anti Wall Street, class warfare rhetoric. I have no doubt that she is a true Maoist, and looks forward to the day when she can preside over executions, and internment in reeducation camps.

Y’all just slay me with the “Indian” translations!

Before anyone gets half an inkling to go on about how these short Indian/English sound bites from old movies are racist, let me tell you what I like about them.

In most Westerns, when the Indians were shown in conversation with the cowboys/settlers, the Indians spoke “pidgin” English, instead of the cowboys/settlers speaking “pidgin” Indian.

What I loved about it was the way the movie Indians got right to the point – direct – no frilly orations. They took English and translated as let the cowboys/settlers know right where they stood.

Example: “Heap big trouble!”

Three words that describe the whole situation: Trouble in a great big heap :D

The simplest test as whether Elizabeth Warren is an Indian is to count how many words she takes to say, “This not squaw you look for!”

Elizabeth Warren is a nasty person. How can she possibly have even .01% support in this, or any other election?

She comes off as platic, phony, mean spirited, dishonest, smarmy, deceptive, obnoxious, condescending, manipulative, and a Socialist-Communist in philosophy.

Brown is a weak form of “Republican” in that he is a soft “c” Conservative, rather than a strong Conservative.

Nevertheless, if having an “R” after your name in senate votes on Conservative Issues, hopefully, Brown would support those Conservative issues, otherwise, might as well let Warren the liar, deceiver, Maoist, pretend to be the Senator.
