I’m enjoying watching Scott Brown’s campaign throw in the terms “elitist” and into their attacks on Elizabeth Warren. Fear and tremble, libs, before the might of such calumnies!
“Professor Warren is entitled to her own opinion about whether or not Congress overstepped its bounds, but this sort of irresponsible political attack on the court even before judgment is rendered goes too far, and reveals Professor Warren’s elitist tendency to attack anyone and everyone who does not immediately embrace her far-left worldview,” said Brown campaign director Jim Barnett.
Oh SNAP! It is so ON!
You know what kind of book elitists write? Books like
Buying the Right Truck for Your Daughter’s Horse: An Illustrated Guide The Two Income Trap: Why Middle-Class Mothers and Fathers Are Going Broke. Oh man … sooooo elitist.
Perhaps I should be afraid of this kind of I-know-you-are-but-what-am-I, Karl Rove-style attack. I suppose it’s worked in the past. But given that Warren has spent her entire life working on behalf of the middle class, and can speak for herself pretty darned well, this line looks more pathetic and desperate — an attempt to distract from Brown’s sterling record on defending plutocracy:
- Voting to continue billions in tax subsidies to insanely profitable oil companies;
- Begging for cash from plutocrat billionaires:
- Insisting that unemployment benefits come from “the checking account” while allowing tax cuts for the wealthiest to be put “on the credit card”; — indeed, holding middle class tax cuts hostage unless the cuts were also extended for the rich.
… and let’s recall that Brown went to fancier undergrad and law schools than did Warren. Nothing wrong with that, just sayin’.
When Scott Brown and Co. call Elizabeth Warren “elitist” … it’s not scary. It’s pathetic and weak — a smelly red herring to distract from Sen. Brown’s record. I hope they use that line every day and twice on Sunday.
