wow turns out scott brown is kind of a dick!

Live Blogging Your Elizabeth Warren/Scott Brown Deathmatch (Pt. One Of Four)

Professor Schoolmarm, with the ruler, in the libraryRemember when Your Wonkette went to Tampa and Charlotte and then lots and tons of other cities, to feed beer to you, our beloved Wonkados? No, we don’t either. But we are told we made friends with a bunch of dudes from Boston whilst there, and they told us FLAT OUT that Scott Brown was gonna cream Elizabeth Warren in the Massachusetts Senate race. Everybody likes him too much, they explained, but we have not asked them to splain since all those polls came out showing Warren finally ahead how they could be so stupid. Eh, happens to everyone! Like today, we put up a Fox & Friends post that was over two years old! Here, have some liveblog, we shall begin! If you don’t have Cspan THREE, you can watch it here.

7:02 PM — And in his very first answer, Scott Brown comes out and calls Elizabeth Warren an Affirmative Action Pocahontas who lies about her very skin color! We think Massachusetts voters might not like the Dickish side of Sears?

7:04 PM — Whoops. “I was gonna start out by saying Scott Brown is a nice guy.” Her dad’s family not wanting him to marry her mom because of her mixed-breed heritage seems like a good enough reason to think you are Native American. Brown returns with “personnel records,” even though Harvard has already vowed she didn’t claim minority status. This is an uggggllly debate from Question One, and Warren is being soft-spoken and gracious.

7:12 PM — Scott Brown explains that joblessness comes from “regulatory uncertainty.” This is hilarious, because Elizabeth Warren actually knows stuff about things. And the made-up-ness of that rightwing talking point is almost unanswerable. But not when Warren is there to break it down for you. Remember Bill Clinton in Charlotte? Yeah, Elizabeth Warren would like to Explain some stuff at you!

7:16 PM — Brownie cites the extreme rightwing US Chamber of Commerce as Warren being a job killer. He calls them “independent.” Warren is going to reeeeallly need to focus on not making “IDIOT!!!!” faces at every idiot thing Brown says.

7:21 PM — Yes Warren is saying awesome things, but can we note that with that weird Plexiglas podium, it looks like she is saying them from her Invisble Wonder Woman Plane?

7:22 PM — Warren talks about subsidizing the oil companies making $137 billion in profits each year. He rebuts that it’s reaallly expensive to gas up his truck. DRINK!

7:32 PM — Why does Elizabeth Warren keep bringing up Scott Brown’s votes? Doesn’t she know that is not allowed?

7:33 PM — Brown: My dad or stepdad or someone was a piece of shit who beat up my mom so I have been fighting for women since I was six, except for Equal Pay for Equal Work, also Catholics! Stop pittin’ ‘em! Oh, what, somebody is actually explaining how the birth control mandate was NOT a war on religion? SHUT YOUR MOUTH HUSSY.

7:35 PM — Brown loves women! And hates the Globe! But equal pay is for trial lawyers, and some nonsense about the Blunt Amendment. Oooh, and Warren lowers the “I knew Senator Kennedy” BOOM.

7:42 PM — Is it just us, or does Brown sound like a condescending prick even when he’s praising Hillary Clinton? We are fairly sure he said something nice, but it came out like he was slapping her ass and calling her a great gal.

7:46 PM — Scott Brown goes in for the kill: OH YEAH? Well ELIZABETH WARREN IS RICH!!!

7:47 PM — Sure you wanted to leave that hanging right over the plate, Scott? Are you suuuuuure? Oh right, here is Elizabeth Warren to explain that citizens invested in her education, not loopholes for the big guys, with those big warm eyes of hers. Scott Brown: BLAH BLAH ANGER! PIGGY BANK! FLOOD INSURANCE! BLAH.

7:51 PM — Scott Brown says Elizabeth Warren poisons people with asbestos. True? Don’t know! We will get back to you on that, once Twitter makes its ruling!

7:52 PM — Scott Brown cites the eternal sadness that is no new nuclear facilities, the same day Three Mile Island shuts down. (For real!)

7:54 PM — And finally, Elizabeth Warren pulls the James Inhofe is a fucking moron card. However did it take so long?

8:05 PM — So here is the Globe article Warren cited to refute Brown’s assertion that she danced on the grave of asbestos victims. It’s … long! But it basically says no, Elizabeth Warren helped people with asbestos, even though she was working for the insurance company. Stupid Globe commies.

And … that’s it! Did it feel incredibly weird and short to anyone else? Like, there was so much pent up SHIT the two were trying to say, they sounded like cattle auctioneers. LUCKILY THERE WILL BE THREE MORE.

    "I want to thank Elizabeth Warren for coming out"

    Scottie just got the hopes of a bunch of lesbians way up…

  2. Callyson

    FFS, no one gives a fuck about this Native American crap. This is as boring as the flap about Obama's college transcripts…

    1. Preacher_Griz

      Wrong! This is a HUGE deal!!!!

      If she really is a native American then she is an illegal immigrant in violation of US federal and state labor employment laws who is taking jobs away from REAL Americans.

  3. Mittens Howell, III

    Senator Brown: "Warren is a liar. "

    Elizabeth Warren: "Senator Brown is a nice guy."

    I see what you did there!!

  4. Jukesgrrl

    What are we live blogging? Besides the Yankee game? I had eye surgery yesterday. Am I allowed to talk about how I still have a headache? Pretty please?

    My brother said when they took off my cataract I would "see the light" and start voting Teapublican. BUT I STILL HATE MITT. So obviously I am recovering. And no, I am not an old — even the young and hawt can have cataracts.

          1. DemmeFatale

            My daughter's boyfriend is a "pirate."
            I'll bet he said Yaaaaarrrrrrrgh all day.
            Unless "talk like a pirate day" is just for poseurs and sell-outs.
            He's the real thing, (whatever that means).

            I hope you have a speedy recovery.

    1. MittBorg

      Oh, baby! (Hugs you) Wish I were there. I'd bring you tea and prop your feet up for you and rub your head. You didn't TELL me you were going to get your eye sliced up, geeze.

      1. Jukesgrrl

        Thanks for your good wishes.I could have used a head rub yesterday. The corrective surgery was successful but my cornea was scraped in the process.SUPERPAIN!It heals quickly, though.I can see the monitor just fine today.

          1. Jukesgrrl

            Thanks for the concern.It still hurts to put the drops in, but other than that, I'm fine.I'm wearing sunglasses in the house, so I look like a hipster.The constant stream of news about the Republicans' meltdown is all the medicine I need.

          2. MittBorg

            I'll see if I can get 'em to melt a little faster, in the interests of your poor hurting eyes. They must've heard you, cause, MAN, they are losing it big time.

          3. Jukesgrrl

            My blood pressure went down 10 points when I saw Mitt in his orange-face.Watched Chris Hayes this morning and actually felt sorry for his token conservative.The rest of them laughed so raucously through the entire two hours, incl. our girl Ana Marie Cox.

          4. MittBorg

            Here's a little tidbit to make you extra happiez, then: Sarah Palin has decided she needs to give Mitt 'n Ann the benefit of her WhizDumz. She's advising Mitt to "go rogue."

            I imagine he's popping a blood vessel right … about … now.

            I look forward to daily explosions now.

        1. MosesInvests

          Ooh, scratched cornea. Dang, that's agonizing. Fortunately, as you say, it heals quickly. But that was the only time I ever woke up screaming. Scared the hell out of my family.

          1. Jukesgrrl

            Seriously, yes!I was in a fetal position and I don't know if the Niagara Falls pouring out of my eyes was from sobbing or an involuntary body reflex.I don't wish that on a tea bagger.

        2. Jukesgrrl

          I was thinking heroin … mainlined.My old ma actually offered me the Oxycontin left over from her hip replacement.We're such trailer trash here in Arizona.

      1. Jukesgrrl

        Thanks.It was weird to be the young one in the doctor's waiting room!But weird in a good way.BTW, my brother was kidding.He has a bumper sticker on his car that says, “I'm a tax and spend liberal and I vote.”

    2. James Michael Curley

      Jeese, so did I – like Monday and Wed for the other eye. But it feels better than it has for months.

        1. James Michael Curley

          I just gave up on commenting, the whole thing seems a little screwed up.“I see everything twice” is one of my favorite episodes in Catch-22. As I have mentioned before the Army decided I could fly helicopters but my eyes were starting to cross after being straightened while I was a kid. “No problem, we’ll straighten them for you, lay down on this table.” So the doctor performs the surgery which required being blindfolded for five days in the 60’s and the blindfolds get taken off and “I see everything twice.” The doctor had STRAIGHTENED my eyes when they needed a slight paralex. So after a week of walking around and see a lot of identical twinse, falling out of things and walking into poles they took me in and redid the surgery. (Driving a motorcycle is more than a little difficult when you have to look down and try to decide which speedometer to look at.) I hated that doctor for decades because eventually it was determined that I would never have full depth perception. I only learned a few years ago that after he left the Army he went to South East Asia and spent the rest of his life performing ocular and facial surgery on people we had bombed. I understand he stayed in Saigon after the fall and was not located again. The internet has everything on it.

      1. James Michael Curley

        Seeing the rest of you post, I have to confess that mine was to releave the pressure between the fron and back of the lens which was causing it to collapse. Ms. Curley's cataract surgery went very well but get to the doctor if it looks the slightest cloudy. My eye doctor said 40% of those who receive an artificial lens develop a cloudy membrane behind it and thing nothing can be done. It can because now, if you have an artificial lens in place, the membrane can be removed by a laser procedure.

      2. Jukesgrrl

        They have my other eye scheduled for next month.I thought it was the good one, but now that the right one is cleared up, I can tell that I can't see properly through the left one either.Glad your operation was a success.

        1. James Michael Curley

          It’s good you are getting it cleared up with the procedure. I keep meeting people who didn’t realize how much cataracts had diminished their vision. Today I follow up on the procedures to relieve the pressure in the eyes with an exam which will look at the cataract I have to determine if and when it needs attention.Did your doctor give you a set of those giant space man sun glasses that fit over regular glasses?

          1. Jukesgrrl

            Yes, I got the spaceman glasses.They are surprisingly comfortable.I already had yellow-tinted prescription specs that have proved to be very handy for indoor wear.I don't have to close all the blinds in my AZ house and annoy the rest of the family.

  5. Callyson

    Oh yeah–and about those small businesses:

    According to a new study conducted by The George Washington University’s Graduate School of Political Management, 39% of more than 6,000 small-business owners surveyed said President Obama is “more supportive of small business” versus the 31% who believed that of Republican Presidential candidate Mitt Romney.

    http://www3.cfo.com/article/2012/9/growth-compani

      1. Geminisunmars

        Didn't they try and change that a year or so ago. I can't recall whether they were successful in ridding themselves of the Providence Plantations part.

        1. bikerlaureate

          Per Wikipedia –

          On June 25, 2009, the General Assembly voted to allow the people to decide whether to keep the name or drop "Providence Plantations" due to the misperception that the name relates to slavery.[15] The referendum election was held on this subject during the November 2, 2010 elections, and the people overwhelmingly voted (78% to 22%) to keep the original name.

  6. OneYieldRegular

    I don't have a television, so I'm just going to have to make do with a copy of Playgirl and a volume of John Maynard Keynes.

  7. Serfville

    Why is he talkin' like James Cagney? I have never heard Brown lay on the pahk yer cah accent like this before, what a phoney.

  8. Callyson

    Yeah, Congress held a vote just so Elizabeth Brown could have a talking point. It had nothing to do with actually wanting to reduce the deficit or any crap like that…

    Asshole.

  9. Callyson

    Oh, and about that National Federation of Independent Businesses?

    Citing the National Federation of Independent Business, she added, “A few years ago, the N.F.I.B. contributed 95% of its PAC money to Republican candidates.” Another offered: “The N.F.I.B. on any piece of legislation will be slanted towards the leanings [of] the paying membership and, thus, not representative the feelings of all small businessmen.”

    http://boss.blogs.nytimes.com/2009/08/26/whom-doe

    Asshole.

  10. Callyson

    "The so – called wealthy"–really? The top 2% is "so – called wealthy"? That's the best Scottie can do?

  11. Boojum

    Boston.com just described this way: "7:15 p.m. – In 2010, Brown was the hunter against Martha Coakley. Now, he is the hunted by Elizabeth Warren."

  12. AlterNewt

    Liz. Throw in a 'wang' joke and you'll knock him off his stride. Then walk over and kick him in the nuts.

    Just a thought.

      1. horsedreamer_1

        &, like Fidel, Ricky was Cuban. Like Chris Brown, he roughed up his partner. Like Sonny Bono, his partner was the brain of the business.

        Three strikes!

  13. TribecaMike

    Can't wait for the part when Tip O'Neill shows up and beats Brown over the head with Chris Matthews in a sack.

  14. Callyson

    God, he just keeps repeating the same tired talking point, doesn't he? I guess that's what you do when you've got nothing…

  15. Callyson

    "They can check a box"

    Yeah, and how many people are going to be inspired to do so while politicians like Scottie allow unfair tax subsidies and breaks for industries like the oil companies?

    Asshole.

  16. Veritas78

    Oh god he's a friend of the motorist, talking about how much it costs to fill up his truck. She's right back at him for supporting tax breaks for big oil.

    1. sullivanst

      Longer still. December 2007. Ended what… Q1 2010 officially? Can't remember, but definitely over by mid-2010.

  17. Callyson

    "That's not where taxpayer money should go…"

    She's starting to warm up…that's it, Elizabeth, get some passion going along with the smarts FTW!

  18. ProgressiveInga

    On EW's twitter feed – @elizabethforma – she is correcting his errors as the debate rolls….she really is a professor!

  19. Chow Yun Flat

    Scott Brown explains that joblessness comes from “regulatory uncertainty.”

    Or on planet earth, from the willingness of international capital to squeeze every bit of value from workers before discarding them.

  20. Callyson

    Medicare fraud? Yeah, let's discuss that–let's discuss how the cuts that you fuckers have made in the budget mean there are entire states that have NO auditors looking over Medicare billing records, which makes fraud easy to commit…

    Asshole.

  21. ThankYouJeebus

    All i can say is she must have super powers to keep from rolling her eyes every time this doofus talks.

  22. OzoneTom

    Cutting subsidies to hugely-profitable oil companies will have less of an impact on the price of gasoline than it already fluctuates on a daily basis for no apparent reason.

  23. Callyson

    A break, thank God…and I hope the questions in the second part are more interesting than this has been…

  24. Poindexter718

    Scotty looks like a kid who was counting on a snow day (senate business), didn't study for the test and woke up to bluebird skies…

  25. HeadsIWin

    she's brought a tray of cookies to a knife fight.

    needs to stop saying "commonwealth"

    her fake smile no where near as practiced as
    mr. trucknuts

    1. Callyson

      Look everyone–a new troll!

      1. Those cookies include an ingredient to which Scott Brown is allergic–the truth.

      2. Massachusetts is a commonwealth.

      3. Her unpracticed smile is clearly genuine, whereas Scotty's drips with smarminess and contempt.

  26. BigSkullF*ckingDog

    I don't like wonkado. Can we please be known as wonkasexuals? Or does that sound too much like a pervy candy maker?

  27. Callyson

    Christ, the Supreme Court…how could I forget about yet another reason to keep the Senate in Democratic hands…

  28. Chow Yun Flat

    "Regulatory uncertainty" is such a canard. GM and Ford have factories in Brazil where the only regulatory certainty is that it will take forever to get the right government employee to stamp the right document. They know that and they manage accordingly.

    Scott Brown knows as much about business formation as a duck does about Sanskrit.

    1. sullivanst

      Not to mention, one party asserting that they'll do the exact opposite of the other party, whatever that might mean, just because, and also that if they're ever in power, they'll repeal what the other party did, again just because, is probably the single best way to increase uncertainty.

    2. BoroPrimorac

      It's the same shitty game the rich and their ass lickers always play. If we don't keep their taxes low, allow them to pollute the shit out of our environment and do whatever they want with workers, then they'll take their factories or capital elsewhere. Unfortunately, in the age of Citizen's United, we'll never get a politician who'll call them on their bluff and tell them to fuck off.

    1. Boojum

      You know, there is some pretty good data showing that people from abusive families often act out the same abuse, although maybe in a different way. Sounds to me like Scottie boy learnt sumpin' from that abusive whatever.

  29. ttommyunger

    So, which girl is gonna win this Bitch-Slap-A-Looza? My vote goes to the short one; she's kinda sexy in a "Hot Teacher" sort of way.

  30. Callyson

    "You should stop scaring women"

    OH NO HE DIDN'T just say that women are such delicate flowers that we will cringe in terror whenever a candidate goes after another candidate on women's rights!

    Fucking sexist pig…

  31. TribecaMike

    "I don't want to pit women between their church and the state. I want to pit women against their insurance company."

    Dang, she beat me to it.

  32. Callyson

    Catholics pitted against their faith? Don't something like 90% of Catholics use birth control?

    Fucker.

    (God, this debate is making me hate this asshole more and more…)

    1. sullivanst

      Well yeah, and now they work better because of the Lilly Ledbetter Act. It's not like there wasn't a poster-child for why the old laws weren't good enough.

  33. Callyson

    "We've got to have a whole plan"

    Unlike what we had when we went barreling into Iraq…no thank you, W…

  34. Callyson

    Yeah, maybe Obama would be more inclined to visit the PM of Israel if he had not made it crystal clear that he wants Mittens to win, asshole…

  35. Callyson

    Oh FFS, is this really a question? Some people who went to college get jobs that don't require a degree…so they should not go to college at all? So much for those aspiring actors, writers, artists, musicians…

    This moderator sucks.

  36. Callyson

    I did not think this was possible, but I think I might hate Scott Brown even more than Mittens…the topic is education, asshole, not small businesses and taxes…

    (ETA–and no, oil companies are *not* small businesses, idiot…)

  37. cousinitt

    It's ok to be financially successful for Scottie, just not by contributing to a major research university's bottom line.

  38. Callyson

    Lowering student loan interest rates = putting money in a piggy bank?

    Christ, there is not enough alcohol in the world to soothe this rage…

    PLEASE, Massachusetts, PLEASE get rid of this asshole!

  39. Callyson

    I love how he keeps saying that Elizabeth is misrepresenting his votes, when his best argument against her is based on speculative "studies" by business groups…

    Asshole.

    1. Jukesgrrl

      She probably did do a consultation with them. Doesn't mean she could control what they did with the study she provided. But he sounds really jealous of her money, doesn't he? Since when are Teapublicans against people making money?

        1. cousinitt

          Warren campaign spokeswoman Alethea Harney told the Free Beacon, “Elizabeth served as a consultant for Travelers because she wanted to ensure that all victims got a fair shake and had an equal chance for compensation. That’s why she supported all insurance proceeds being put in a trust rather than fighting lawsuit-by-lawsuit until the money ran out.”

    2. BerkeleyBear

      Because it would take too long to explain to an idiot like Brown that working for a company on one issue is not the same thing as supporting what they do years after you are no longer working for them that subverts your prior efforts. Plus, the Globe already debunked it in detail, so just referring people to its coverage (as she did) is easier.

  40. Callyson

    Oh yeah, Inhofe…forgot about that asshole.

    And since you would put him into power if you win, it is *too* fair for her to call you out on his extremism, asshole…

    1. wiccanpedia

      I'm not from Mass., but I think she just did a fabulous job of reminding voters that this really isn't so much about Scotty as it is about the folks he votes with…

    1. sullivanst

      Well, it's not the capability to act with intent, so no.

      But coal is death. Digging it out of the ground kills people. Coal smoke kills 30,000 Americans every year, and ruins the respiratory health of millions. And that's before you even start to consider the land and food wars global warming will bring about, or the storm and flooding deaths, or the starvation from failed crops due to flooding/drought.

      Coal is death.

    1. wiccanpedia

      Especially since we all know that his constituents- most of 'em, anyway- are not looking for a partisan Repug.

      1. Veritas78

        You're going to love Angus King (I-ME), who will have the ultimate in narcissistic party/state post-name IDs.

    1. GeorgiaBurning

      96- we want to keep Barbara. Dianne needs to settle down in a nice 12 bedroom cottage on an acre in Atherton and complain about the neighbors.

      1. Fukui-sanYesOta

        Difi used to live on Presidio Terrace; a monumental house right on the cliff past the golden gate bridge. I saw it and it was incredible. Used to be owned by Marsha Lucas (George's ex)

        I think she lives in Pacific Heights now.

  41. weejee

    Oh shit Brownie, when you close a debate by dumping a gunny sack including all the radical libtard nightmares of the Teatarders, you know you lost. And you did!

  42. Callyson

    FINALLY the moderator prevented Scottie from interrupting yet again…

    But if they don't get a different moderator for the next one, I'm out…

    Off to walk the dogs, but I'll come back and read everyone's comments from the start. Happy snarking, Wonketters!

  43. rickmaci

    Browny has a quivering scared little boy voice thing going. It's too fukcing annoying to listen to him. Wawawa. She's so mean. Wawawa, She has brains and I don't. Wawawa.

  44. ProgressiveInga

    Then there's this factoid from the twittershpere:
    Before EW entered the race, Brown voted w/R’s 81% of the time. After, it dropped to 60%.

  45. Veritas78

    I feel a whole lot better. Now I think she has a decent chance of winning. Wish we'd seen this earlier, but now's certainly the time!

  46. Pat_Pending

    Having left CSPAN-3 on post-debate, I am greeted by the charming visage of one Representative David Camp (R-Michigan), Ways and Means Commitee chair. Who just happens to look like that lovely fella from The Hills Have Eyes (1977).

  47. Blueb4sinrise

    Our own Intense Debate was stalling me some, feel free to add 10 more

    SCOTT !!!! YOU FUCK!!!

    to the thread.

    1. Callyson

      That happened to me to when I came back to read the comments from the top, but I think it's better now.

      Also–

      SCOTT !!!! YOU FUCK!!!

  48. Veritas78

    It was weak of him to start off attacking her Native American heritage and demanding that she release her personnel files to prove she didn't get an advantage from it. She batted that down expertly, in a comprehensive way I hadn't seen before.

    1. Limeylizzie

      For some reason I can only respond and not post a new comment, how did it go, sounds like she won, yes?

  49. Veritas78

    He keeps trying to play the "I'm bipartisan crowd, I'm just like Teddy!" card, and that's not going to work, because Teddy's voters will hate him for it and turn out for her (and his voters, who hate Teddy, will lose their lunch).

    She's got him on the control of the Senate, and everyone remembers how health care nearly didn't pass because he won that special election. She's ready to remind everyone.

    New staffing? More focused message? Whatever it is, she's got it now.

    1. sullivanst

      She's got him on the control of the Senate, and everyone remembers how health care nearly didn't pass because he won that special election. She's ready to remind everyone.

      The special election where the only part of his campaign that wasn't "Hey, I drive a truck" was "I'll be the 41st vote to filibuster healthcare"?

  50. BoroPrimorac

    I thought Brown came off as a condescending prick. I can't see too many independents being attracted to his twatishness.

  51. Warwhatgoodfor

    To hell with the debate, already. Lizzie is hawt! Jesus H Christ on a T Rex! Anybody got her private #, because…….

    1. rocktonsam

      Someone said on Morning Edition that she should lose the granny glasses.

      I'm like, no way man,thats where the HAWT begins.

    1. Mojopo

      Like she wouldn't be prepared! Is he that frickin' dumb? Does he need to be on Social Security for a learning disability? First thing, right off the bat, and she fed it into the garbage disposal like so many eggs shells and coffee grounds.

    2. mojopo

      I *was* going to wait until October and budget out how much I can afford to give, but after seeing this, I sent in a quick $25. Will budget for more next month.

      GO ELIZABETH!

        What about the guy running against Cantor?

        Steph and Mudcat seem to think Cantor can be beat.

        It may be to soon to call it however but maybe hope and change will be four years later, as planned

    Wonkette is doing that thing it did last night where the full date and time are listed when you refresh the latest comments. Argh! What the hell has been going on the last few nights?

        It's not just the time, though. While that is annoying, I'm having to refresh the page just to make replies. Otherwise, when I'm replying, it just hangs.

      Here is what SayItWithWookies said last night:

      "What's funny is that it's Twitter-related — when the writers embed the tweets as above, there's a script in the follow button that refers to something not on the page, which causes it to hang. Putting a screenshot instead of a direct embed solves the problem."

        I hope someone sent this tweet to them. It sucks that the last thread of the night is the one it happens to.

        Huh, that's worth knowing. I've been fucked by this many a time.

        Firefox doesn't like it. Perhaps some other browsers don't care.

        1. Negropolis

          I'm using Firefox, and I'm one of those stubborn people that once I find a browser, program or search engine I like, I don't switch. Hell, I bet I'm the last user of the Yahoo search engine. lol

          Can anyone test to see if you get this error in, say, IE?

    Am I disappointed that at no point did Brown strip to the waist, revealing his oiled-up torso, and start shouting at Warren daring her to wrestle him for the senate seat because, "You think I can't take you?? YOU THINK I CAN'T TAKE YOU?!?"

    Yes. Just a little. Maybe next time.
