Tomahawk, schmomahawk: release your records, Ms. Warren

posted at 8:14 am on September 26, 2012 by

Thanks to Legal Insurrection for posting this video, also available on the Red Mass Group page, of Rob Eno of Red Mass Group and John Walsh of the Massachusetts Democratic Party discussing recent news in the Elizabeth Warren/Scott Brown campaign, including revelations that Warren represented big, bad corporations against “little guys,” and Brown supporters and staff members got a little crude on the campaign trail, using a “tomahawk chop” gesture to mock Warren’s supporters.

I’m not familiar with NECN (New England Cable News) or the host of this show, Jim Braude, but he does a masterful job of grilling both guests. But Eno won the day, not allowing the silly controversy over Brown supporters and staff members using the tomahawk chop to mock Warren’s claims of Native American lineage to muddy the waters. “We wouldn’t be having this discussion,” said Eno, if Elizabeth Warren hadn’t claimed this heritage and possibly used it (maybe even illegally, Eno suggests) to get ahead.  It’s worth the nearly seven-minutes to watch:

I used to live in Rhode Island, for many years. NECN is a rather straight-forward news supplier overall, and Braude actually acts like a journalist. Usually, their coverage is actually based on facts instead of innuendo, although their coverage of Boston’s Big Dig seemed to paper over some early indications of trouble.
…and Oh, yeah…Bishop!

Braude is one of the few liberals I can tolerate on the radio. I seldom agree with his positions but as he shows here, he is fair and does not shrink from asking pointed questions. I do believe he lets the chips fall where they will.

Ditto. Jay Severin (when they both worked on WTKK) used to call him “Jim the Red,” which he is, but he is enormously intelligent, often funny, and remarkably fair. He works with Marjorie Egan of the Boston Herald on WTKK’s morning show, who helps keep Jim honest. I have this vague recollection that he ran for office once, but that may not be true.

Braude is a moonbat, but he actually points out his own ideological contradictions in a humorous way if you listen to him on the radio. He did a good job in this interview. He also had Sean Beilat on the other day, but that coward Kennedy was a no-show.
