A take down worth watching that shows why Elizabeth Warren is an electrifying leader.
Key take-aways: why won’t Scott Brown reveal the names of the people on his New York Finance Committee. What is Scott Brown’s plan to keep student interest rates from doubling, now that he has twice voted to let them rise. And how dare Scott Brown attack the love of Warren’s mother for her father. As she told CBS in similar language:
“My mom and dad were deeply in love,” said Warren, who was raised in Oklahoma. My father wanted to marry my mother, his parents objected, because she was part-Cherokee and part-Delaware. My parents eloped, in order to marry. It’s something my brothers and I grew up with. We always understood the difference, between our father’s family and our mother’s family,” she said.”
Is Scott Brown a hater? Could he denigrate a non-traditional couple? Might he insinuate that a woman’s word should not be taken seriously? Poof! The wholesome Captain America in a barn jacket disappears and in his place stands yet another shriveled shrunken-souled Republican. The type of person that appeals to just 11 percent of registered voters and is about as popular to Massachusetts independents as a fake Twitter smear campaign.
Equally impressive is Brown/GOP operative Foxer Sharman Sacchetti’s intellectual immolation. The would-be attacker turns her gotchas into gimmes through monotone repetition as Warren uses each one to pound Brown and reverse engineer Sacchetti on live TV as a mouthpiece for the Brown campaign. Extraordinary.
Clip is on the jump because it is too wide for the front page, more’s the pity. Hat tip to the ever-entertaining Red Mass Group.
