WOW TURNS OUT SCOTT BROWN IS KIND OF A DICK!  6:59 pm September 20, 2012

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

by Rebecca Schoenkopf

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.

Thanks for the 7PM reminder, the Yankee game is about to start.

actor212 September 21, 2012 at 9:08 am

So what happened to the other three parts? Or are those being folded into the Mormon/Mexican Massacree at Alice's Restaurant?

Callyson September 20, 2012 at 7:01 pm

Oh God, Scottie's smile is smug.

wiccanpedia September 20, 2012 at 7:57 pm

Even his hair is smug.

MittBorg September 20, 2012 at 7:58 pm

Why do all these republicans look like smarmy dicksuckers?

sullivanst September 20, 2012 at 8:08 pm

Is that a rhetorical question?

MittBorg September 20, 2012 at 8:21 pm

Well … yeah.

Oh, wait. Was THAT a r …

Fuck.

sullivanst September 20, 2012 at 8:24 pm

MUAHAHAHAHA!

lulzmonger September 20, 2012 at 11:47 pm

Reince Priebus responds:

Callyson September 20, 2012 at 7:01 pm

Elizabeth!

a_pink_poodle September 20, 2012 at 7:01 pm

Let's get ready to RUMBLLLLLLLLLLLLLLE

Callyson September 20, 2012 at 7:01 pm

Obey your monitor!

Callyson September 20, 2012 at 7:02 pm

"I want to thank Elizabeth Warren for coming out"

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

AlterNewt September 20, 2012 at 7:02 pm

Yes,character is important…

Serfville September 20, 2012 at 7:02 pm

WTF?

Callyson September 20, 2012 at 9:23 pm

That's a good summary of the whole debate.

ProgressiveInga September 20, 2012 at 7:02 pm

I was hoping I wouldn't have to watch this shitstorm alone….Thank you, Editrix!

Serfville September 20, 2012 at 7:03 pm

Mumbling like Clint Eastwood! Jeebus!

Blueb4sinrise September 20, 2012 at 7:03 pm

Scott !!!!
You fucking asshole!

Callyson September 20, 2012 at 7:03 pm

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

Preacher_Griz September 21, 2012 at 5:31 am

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.

Callyson September 20, 2012 at 7:04 pm

"Senator Brown is a nice guy"

For once, I *like* that "nice guys finish last" quote…

Mittens Howell, III September 20, 2012 at 7:04 pm

Senator Brown: "Warren is a liar. "

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

I see what you did there!!

TheMightyHaltor September 20, 2012 at 9:59 pm

She must have meant Sherrod.

Doktor Zoom September 20, 2012 at 11:27 pm

And Brutus is an honorable man.

MittBorg September 20, 2012 at 11:30 pm

Quite.

mille derps September 21, 2012 at 3:50 am

Well, Olive Oyl thought so, but entre nous, I never thought she was all that bright…

BoroPrimorac September 20, 2012 at 7:05 pm

Motherfucker.

badseeds September 20, 2012 at 7:05 pm

Hey, Happy Trails, this is gonna go over well.

ProgressiveInga September 20, 2012 at 7:05 pm

Scotty threw the first sucker punch. What a douchenozzle.

Callyson September 20, 2012 at 7:05 pm

NICE comeback about the native American flap, Elizabeth! Suck it, Scottie!

Serfville September 20, 2012 at 7:05 pm

The guy is F'n' desperate. Stoopid

Mittens Howell, III September 20, 2012 at 7:05 pm

Not releasing personnel records. Is that bad? Like not releasing tax returns?

Callyson September 20, 2012 at 7:05 pm

Personnel records? FFS, what's next, will the wingnuts start asking for dental records next?

Jukesgrrl September 20, 2012 at 7:06 pm

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.

Jukesgrrl September 20, 2012 at 7:08 pm

Oh, it's a debate! I'm starting to wake up. I can't listen to Scott Brown without more drugs.

AlterNewt September 20, 2012 at 7:10 pm

Do you have an eye patch? Because 'talk like a pirate day' was yesterday.

Jukesgrrl September 20, 2012 at 7:22 pm

AAAArrrrrrrrrrrrrrrgh.

DemmeFatale September 20, 2012 at 7:34 pm

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.

Jus_Wonderin September 20, 2012 at 7:19 pm

I'm an old. I am more of a dogaract kind person.

BoatOfVelociraptors September 20, 2012 at 7:20 pm

You bark like you blink?

MittBorg September 20, 2012 at 8:06 pm

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.

Jukesgrrl September 20, 2012 at 8:18 pm

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.

MittBorg September 20, 2012 at 8:23 pm

My toes curled up just reading that. Rest plenty, I'll be hovering in spirit all weekend. (Oy. Just like having your bubbe over.)

wiccanpedia September 20, 2012 at 8:57 pm

Ooh- will you make rugelach, too?

Jukesgrrl September 21, 2012 at 7:06 pm

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.

MosesInvests September 20, 2012 at 10:49 pm

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.

Jukesgrrl September 22, 2012 at 10:36 pm

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.

Jukesgrrl September 22, 2012 at 10:42 pm

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.

AlterNewt September 22, 2012 at 11:35 pm

I'm sure you'll do what's right. Feel better.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tRVkS6Owp9Q

fuflans September 20, 2012 at 8:52 pm

my folks got cataract surgery a couple years ago and now both of those assholes see way better than me.

hope it all works out jukes!

Jukesgrrl September 21, 2012 at 7:04 pm

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.”

trampndirtdown September 20, 2012 at 9:02 pm

Get better soon. <3

Jukesgrrl September 21, 2012 at 7:02 pm

Thanks.I'm fine today.

James Michael Curley September 20, 2012 at 9:05 pm

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

Boojum September 20, 2012 at 9:07 pm

If you had the surgery, why am I seeing double?

James Michael Curley September 20, 2012 at 9:28 pm

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.

James Michael Curley September 20, 2012 at 9:10 pm

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.

Jukesgrrl September 21, 2012 at 7:01 pm

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.

James Michael Curley September 22, 2012 at 5:42 am

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?

Jukesgrrl September 22, 2012 at 10:21 pm

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.

Barrelhse September 20, 2012 at 10:04 pm

I'm glad you didn't say Mandarin.

Chow Yun Flat September 20, 2012 at 7:06 pm

"No monopoly on good ideas"…but the GOP has a monopoly on bad ideas.

Callyson September 20, 2012 at 7:06 pm

Way to give a laser like focus on jobs and the economy, Scottie…

TribecaMike September 20, 2012 at 7:07 pm

Will Brown do a reverse of Mitt's tandering, and appear as pale as an Irish-American in Belchertown?

Callyson September 20, 2012 at 7:07 pm

This is, what, a one hour debate, and we've spent over 10% of the time on this crap? FFS…

Chow Yun Flat September 20, 2012 at 7:07 pm

Personnel records my ass. Fuck you Scott Brown.

Serfville September 20, 2012 at 7:07 pm

Brown is a Sarah Palin one note talking point idjet. He is a really sucky debater.

Mittens Howell, III September 20, 2012 at 7:07 pm

Scott Brown appears to have a staple left in his brain from that centerfold spread.

emmelemm September 20, 2012 at 7:10 pm

Hah! I like it.

kittensdontlie September 20, 2012 at 7:42 pm

There is nothing in his brain but one rusty staple.

OneDollarJuana September 20, 2012 at 7:55 pm

And a wistful remembrance of those pink hot pants…

MittBorg September 20, 2012 at 8:10 pm

Including brain.

glasspusher September 20, 2012 at 10:20 pm

Mental shortcomings are a staple of the Republican Party

MittBorg September 21, 2012 at 12:04 am

ID seems to be very wonky tonight, sorry, catch up with you another time!

miss_grundy September 20, 2012 at 9:13 pm

Too bad the staple didn't go through his shortcomings…..tee-hee!

Callyson September 20, 2012 at 7:08 pm

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

miss_grundy September 20, 2012 at 9:17 pm

So much for the "we built it" group…..

Chow Yun Flat September 20, 2012 at 7:09 pm

Are there any other commonwealths than Mass. and Va. or are the rest just states?

Lucidamente1 September 20, 2012 at 7:10 pm

Pennsylvania. But I've always liked "State of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations."

Jukesgrrl September 20, 2012 at 7:25 pm

Kentucky is one, too. And Pennsyltucky as Lucid mentioned.

Geminisunmars September 20, 2012 at 8:35 pm

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.

bikerlaureate September 20, 2012 at 8:49 pm

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.

Geminisunmars September 20, 2012 at 9:05 pm

Thank you. Appreciate you looking that up for me. (I is the lazy).

wiccanpedia September 20, 2012 at 8:02 pm

Commonwealths ought to be socialist.

OneYieldRegular September 20, 2012 at 7:09 pm

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.

Serfville September 20, 2012 at 7:10 pm

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.

trampndirtdown September 20, 2012 at 9:05 pm

I'm yoose guys.

Serfville September 20, 2012 at 9:28 pm

I was waitin' for the grapefruit in the eye thingy

Callyson September 20, 2012 at 7:10 pm

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.

Chow Yun Flat September 20, 2012 at 7:10 pm

This is really dull.

Callyson September 20, 2012 at 7:11 pm

Hard for either one of them to compete with the amusement we've all derived from Mittens' flubs…

Callyson September 20, 2012 at 7:10 pm

"The only part of the President's jobs plan that passed was mine"

Christ, credit-grabber much?

Callyson September 20, 2012 at 7:12 pm

Oh yeah, go for those teachers, firefighters, police, and construction workers!

Jukesgrrl September 20, 2012 at 7:12 pm

She's being gracious? This is Massachusetts, Liz! Joe Kennedy didn't get to be a rich bootlegger being nice.

BoroPrimorac September 20, 2012 at 7:12 pm

Liz scored a body shot.

Veritas78 September 20, 2012 at 7:12 pm

Okay I'm feeling better. He's irritating, and she's not. It's all good.

Mittens Howell, III September 20, 2012 at 7:12 pm

OOH Snap!! She just called him a Republican!!

Jukesgrrl September 20, 2012 at 7:14 pm

A "Republican centerfold" would have been better.

wiccanpedia September 20, 2012 at 8:05 pm

Dayum! The gloves are OFF!

ProgressiveInga September 20, 2012 at 7:12 pm

I don't think you want to play the "regulatory certainty" card, Scotty.

HouseOfTheBlueLights September 20, 2012 at 7:13 pm

I would watch Mittens (the cat) debate Liberty (the dog) if Wonkette was live blogging it.

Bezoar September 20, 2012 at 9:19 pm

Say, is this the real <i/> Commie Mommie?

Serfville September 20, 2012 at 7:13 pm

Genius vs. Microrganism

Callyson September 20, 2012 at 7:13 pm

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.

Veritas78 September 20, 2012 at 7:13 pm

He'd better be careful here. His contempt is showing.

OzoneTom September 20, 2012 at 7:14 pm

The only hope that he has is misrepresenting his record.

TribecaMike September 20, 2012 at 7:15 pm

And Liz is doing a good job of calling him out on it.

Boojum September 20, 2012 at 7:15 pm

Explain it to me, 'Lizbeth!!

Callyson September 20, 2012 at 7:15 pm

"I will not vote to increase taxes on working families–ever"

Oh yeah! Kiss my ass, Scottie!

Veritas78 September 20, 2012 at 7:16 pm

"Our job creators"—a phrase that's past its Sell By date.

ProgressiveInga September 20, 2012 at 7:16 pm

What is he reading? He keeps looking down and his lips are moving. So annoying!

Jukesgrrl September 20, 2012 at 7:27 pm

What happened to that shoulder-cheater-machine the GOP invented for W.?

Callyson September 20, 2012 at 7:16 pm

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

Mittens Howell, III September 20, 2012 at 7:16 pm

The Lorax is doing a great job as moderator.

BoroPrimorac September 20, 2012 at 7:17 pm

She just made him look like a lackey of the 1%.

weejee September 20, 2012 at 7:17 pm

Brown wants to keep cutting the taxes for the upper 2%. Be moar successful Scott iffin' you just cut the cheese.

MittBorg September 20, 2012 at 7:28 pm

Weej! Where'dju find the cute li'l piglet?

weejee September 20, 2012 at 7:32 pm

It was hiding in my triple-ought.

Mittens Howell, III September 20, 2012 at 7:17 pm

Scott Brown sneezed cos he's allergic to being Warren-smacked.

Boojum September 20, 2012 at 7:18 pm

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."

Callyson September 20, 2012 at 7:18 pm

Am I the only one who thinks this moderator is utterly uninspired?

ProgressiveInga September 20, 2012 at 7:19 pm

What moderator?

AlterNewt September 20, 2012 at 7:20 pm

No.

Poindexter718 September 20, 2012 at 7:18 pm

Mod doesn't understand that fiscal cliff is what they've been talking about.

AlterNewt September 20, 2012 at 7:18 pm

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.

Jukesgrrl September 20, 2012 at 7:29 pm

I was thinking she should cut off his balls and throw them in the audience.

AlterNewt September 20, 2012 at 7:30 pm

Glad you're feeling better.

Callyson September 20, 2012 at 9:40 pm

There is no eye surgery in the world that would make me want to see that.

(Too soon?)

Beowoof September 20, 2012 at 7:31 pm

Put that on pay per view and I am buying.

Mittens Howell, III September 20, 2012 at 7:59 pm

nice thought!

Veritas78 September 20, 2012 at 7:18 pm

1/3 done and I'd say she's slightly ahead on points and personality. Also, he doesn't sound so bright.

Mittens Howell, III September 20, 2012 at 7:18 pm

Taxmageddon, Mr Brown?

Keep ya hands off my Geddon!!

HouseOfTheBlueLights September 20, 2012 at 7:19 pm

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

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…

Mittens Howell, III September 20, 2012 at 7:19 pm

Ahem, 'Mitt Romney'.

Callyson September 20, 2012 at 7:22 pm

"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.

Hey Scott, it's not a 3 1/2 year Recession. The recession started 4 years ago under your guy.

Spending's a "big problem," but Pretty Boy says nothing about oil subsidies…

Chow Yun Flat September 20, 2012 at 7:26 pm

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.

Callyson September 20, 2012 at 7:26 pm

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.

OzoneTom September 20, 2012 at 7:27 pm

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.

Chow Yun Flat September 20, 2012 at 7:30 pm

"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.

sullivanst September 20, 2012 at 7:33 pm

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.

BoroPrimorac September 20, 2012 at 11:50 pm

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.

Callyson September 20, 2012 at 7:30 pm

MittBorg September 20, 2012 at 8:48 pm

cousinitt September 20, 2012 at 8:01 pm

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.”

BerkeleyBear September 20, 2012 at 8:12 pm

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.

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.

Limeylizzie September 20, 2012 at 8:19 pm

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

Veritas78 September 20, 2012 at 8:23 pm

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.

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"?

BoroPrimorac September 20, 2012 at 8:29 pm

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

kittensdontlie September 20, 2012 at 8:33 pm

SCOTT BROWN IS KIND OF A DICK

Yes! And not the warm and fuzzy kind!!

GeorgiaBurning September 20, 2012 at 9:28 pm

He's going after the Provincetown vote?

Warwhatgoodfor September 20, 2012 at 9:03 pm

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

rocktonsam September 20, 2012 at 9:44 pm

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

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

glasspusher September 20, 2012 at 10:09 pm

I'd take her class…yessiree…office hours? Yes, I understood the homework just fine, it's just that…

CrunchyKnee September 20, 2012 at 9:09 pm

I has a wonktard crush on Ms. Warren.

fuflans September 20, 2012 at 9:12 pm

thanks wonkette! that was the most painless / quickest summary of asshole vs. academic evah!

BTWBFDIMHO September 20, 2012 at 9:17 pm

I can see Granny and Silvester, but where is Tweety?

tessiee September 20, 2012 at 11:18 pm

Chris Matthews?

BTWBFDIMHO September 21, 2012 at 1:57 am

I loled.

Negropolis September 20, 2012 at 9:31 pm

Honestly, fuck Scott Brown. What a slimeball to open up the debate like that.

Mojopo September 21, 2012 at 12:34 am

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.

mojopo September 21, 2012 at 12:36 am

glasspusher September 20, 2012 at 9:58 pm

Lets all pledge to give $5 per fap to Warren's campaign, even though that will bankrupt some of us.

Callyson September 20, 2012 at 10:14 pm

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!

rocktonsam September 20, 2012 at 10:29 pm

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

Callyson September 20, 2012 at 10:41 pm

I'll put that on my list when I budget for October (God, that list gets longer by the day…)

thebeatgoeson September 21, 2012 at 12:33 am

Wayne Powell was great on her show the other day

Jukesgrrl September 21, 2012 at 1:09 am

Cantor vulnerable? Be still, my heart.

Negropolis September 20, 2012 at 10:01 pm

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?

glasspusher September 20, 2012 at 10:05 pm

I like it, but why not GMT? Now it's back to regular.

Negropolis September 20, 2012 at 10:38 pm

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.

glasspusher September 20, 2012 at 10:46 pm

Huh. I've seen similar behavior on my iPad, just upgraded to the GM of iOS 6.

wiccanpedia September 21, 2012 at 2:29 am

I'm having the same problem- it seems to wait for live blogs to crop up…

AlterNewt September 21, 2012 at 12:16 am

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."

Negropolis September 21, 2012 at 1:57 am

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

Fukui-sanYesOta September 21, 2012 at 4:26 am

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.

Negropolis September 21, 2012 at 7:10 am

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?

BTWBFDIMHO September 21, 2012 at 12:54 am

After watching the debate, Romney decided to return to that house in Florida, organize a couple of pool-fun-raising parties and try to revamp his campaign. Orale, Mito!

Aughhhhhh! DO NOT WANT!!1!

valthemus September 21, 2012 at 5:10 am

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.

Calapine September 21, 2012 at 5:41 am

So, who won i?!

James Michael Curley September 21, 2012 at 6:48 am

Needs: "Direction by George Cukor"

C_R_Eature September 21, 2012 at 7:27 am

Scott Brown = Neoclinus blanchardi

DemonicRage September 21, 2012 at 8:29 am

He manages to make the word "Professor" come out like a sneer.

She may be a fake Native American, but Scottie is a genuine asshole.

Jukesgrrl September 20, 2012 at 7:36 pm

Does he play for Pittsburgh's baseball team? They are Pirates.

MittBorg September 20, 2012 at 11:27 pm

MittBorg September 21, 2012 at 12:01 am

Ya want maybe some nice latkes for breakfast also?

wiccanpedia September 21, 2012 at 2:34 am

LATKES? Yum! You are an awesome Bubbe.

DCBloom September 21, 2012 at 8:28 am

Oh Borg, I love you just a little more every day

MittBorg September 21, 2012 at 1:40 pm

I can no longer get into ID, even though I'm supposedly logged in. But don't jinx Tammy. We're not celebrating till she's in.

MittBorg September 21, 2012 at 1:41 pm

For such a shayne punim, we make latkes.

MittBorg September 21, 2012 at 1:53 pm

I love you too, sweetie. (Hugs you)

MittBorg September 21, 2012 at 7:20 pm

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.

Jukesgrrl September 22, 2012 at 10:32 pm

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.

MittBorg September 22, 2012 at 11:24 pm

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.

Jukesgrrl September 24, 2012 at 3:12 am

I think his campaign manager went rogue quite awhile ago.
