THE PROFESSOR AND MARY ANN  6:50 pm October 1, 2012

Massachusetts Senate Live Blog: The Thrilla In Vanilla

by Rebecca Schoenkopf

You guys there is yet another debate tonight in Massachusetts and we are beside ourselves with excitement waiting for the answer to the eternal question, JUST HOW RACIST WILL SCOTT BROWN BE? We bet he goes full Andrew Jackson. Because for the last hour, his supporters have been doing war whoops and tomahawk chops outside the debate hall, the same kind that Scott Brown sternly reminded Elizabeth Warren to please stop doing, and to show a little class and respect! Anyhoo, turn on your “SPAN” or your this, fetch you some firewater, and let’s start this bitch!

6:53 PM — We are drinking pink Champagne, because it was literally the only booze in the house. Quick everybody, make up a drinking game!

7:01 PM — The rules are there are no rules. Scott Brown is gonna get naked yall.

7:02 PM — David Gregory: Elizabeth Warren, why do you insist on being a damn dirty redskin?

7:04 PM — Scott Brown is backing off, way off. “Nobody’s questioning what her parents told her,” Scott Brown? Guess bald racism wasn’t playing well even in Boston.

7:07 PM — Scott Brown is trying to get back his “likable” cred but after the last debate, that is a horse that is out of the barn door (his unzipped pants). Meanwhile, Warren has just the right amount of “THIS IS TARDED” without actually saying it in all caps.

7:10 PM — Your Editrix may be the only person on the whole of the Internet who doesn’t hear Scott Brown saying “professor” as a slur.

7:16 PM — Scott Brown calls Elizabeth Warren’s contention “laughable” (that she worked on behalf of victims while being paid by an insurance company). She interrupts; he comes back with “let’s assume she’s correct and move on to this steel company.”

7:18 PM — Elizabeth Warren is absolutely on defense right now, and David Gregory breaks in to her defense of her law work with a “bipartisanship” question. Scott Brown, do you love Mitt Romney?

7:20 PM — Scott Brown: No, David Gregory, I am awesomely bipartisan, thank you for asking!

7:24 PM — Elizabeth Warren: I have occasionally also met a Republican I did not want to murder!

7:25 PM — This debate is a mess. Scott Brown is walking all over David Gregory. He’s all like “Listen pansy, I will talk about what I want to talk about because I am full of sperm.” The crowd hoots. And now the crowd is hooting for Warren pointing out that he doesn’t campaign around the country as someone who loves B. Barry Bamz. We read that people were not to be allowed to applaud. The crowd is now stomping on that rule about as much as Scott Brown is stomping on David Gregory. OH, and Scott Brown wants to interrupt Elizabeth Warren once again, surprise.

7:29 PM — And he gets an assist from David Gregory, who cuts Warren off because she (SHOCK) spoke for OVER A MINUTE, IN PARAGRAPH FORM. Did we say Thrilla in Vanilla? This is a fucking free for all.

7:30 PM — OK, remember like 10 minutes ago when we said we didn’t believe Brown was necessarily using “professor” as a pejorative? Well fuck that shit. “Excuse me, I’m not a student in your classroom.”

7:36 PM — What is David Gregory’s boner for Simpson-Bowles? Who the fuck cares? (VILLAGERS.) David Gregory will not actually let her answer his question. Awesome format! Great moderator!

7:37 PM — Weird, Scott Brown is now talking in paragraph form, and David Gregory is NOT INTERRUPTING HIM. Guess David Gregory knows a MAN FULL OF SPERM when he sees one!

7:43 PM — HEY NOW, Elizabeth Warren has been speaking for at least three sentences now. Shouldn’t David Gregory have cut her off?

7:47 PM — David Gregory: Ms. Warren, you’ve had a chance to respond SHUT YOUR MOUTH, “LADY.” (But in many more words.) This is sick. Your Wonkette has no words for how awful that just was.

7:51 PM — Your Editrix can not actually stand much more of this. We imagine David Gregory is not intentionally being a fuckwad sexist asshole to the woman in the debate, and probably does not realize he is doing it. He probably has no idea he has spent the past hour bowing before the alpha male and ganging up with him on the soft-spoken woman sharing their stage. But he has, Blanche. He has. And it is not funny, nor adorable. Warren has held her own without losing her shit, but she has been absolutely on defense thanks to the two of them.

We are now on the Supreme Court and Scotty names every justice as his model justice, because he isn’t just pretty, he is awesome at pandering.

7:55 PM — And David Gregory is like WHY DOESN’T MASS ELECT WOMEN? Is it because they are so stupid and on the rag? Fuck you David Gregory. We can’t say Elizabeth Warren won this fucker (by a longshot), but you lost it.

7:56 PM — HAH HAH I AM DAVID GREGORY AND I AM ASKING THE LADY A SPORTS QUESTION BECAUSE I DIDN’T MAKE IT CLEAR ENOUGH ALREADY THAT WOMEN DON’T BELONG IN OUR CLUB.

Fuckin travesty y’all. Travesty.

Who will have the worse time tonight? Scott Brown or the Red Sox?

kingofmeh October 1, 2012 at 6:59 pm

sawx have their b-team on the field; brown is running f-troop. alphabetically, brown comes out worse.

glasspusher October 1, 2012 at 8:54 pm

Go Sox! Not their night, though (or year…).

Terry October 1, 2012 at 10:31 pm

It's a lovely year in the Baltimore-Washington metropolitan area.

glasspusher October 1, 2012 at 10:48 pm

If you guys can stick it to the Yanks, I'll be rooting for you as well. I doubt the Yanks will be facing the Nationals.Yeah, when's the last time B-W had teams in the playoffs at the same time? How about never? There was the Phillies-Orioles Series in 1983, but Philly is hardly Washington.Parity is good for baseball. Let the best team win!

DemmeFatale October 1, 2012 at 9:37 pm

Sad, but true.
They both suck, and it really doesn't matter who's worse.

actor212 October 2, 2012 at 9:27 am

The only way Brown could win that debate would have been to show up in a Speedo.

FlownOver October 1, 2012 at 6:55 pm

This is good news for Jay Silverheels.

IceCreamEmpress October 1, 2012 at 6:56 pm

"What you mean, 'we', kemosabe?"

nounverb911 October 1, 2012 at 6:57 pm

Needs more "William Tell Overture".

IceCreamEmpress October 1, 2012 at 6:55 pm

A hero who sneezed abruptly seized
Retreat and reversed it to vic-to-ry!

Motherfucking "F Troop" is one of my favorite crazy racist comedies of my childhood.

FlownOver October 1, 2012 at 6:57 pm

Ever see the "Bugs Bunny in the Pacific Theater" cartoons from WWII?

No? Not surprising. They've been out of the rotation since the 50's.

Barrelhse October 1, 2012 at 7:11 pm

And Popeye shooting down Jap monkeys.

schvitzatura October 2, 2012 at 10:19 am

Someone failed to tell a couple of UHF stations in a couple of places I lived in, mostly Texas, to try to cease airing Bugs getting the severely bucked toothed, coke-bottle glasses-wearing, Asian Contagion-tinted version of Elmer Fudd, after not making that left turn at Albuquerque.

Still, I'm waiting for them to show up on Netflix soon, as historical un-PC documentaries…

deanbooth October 1, 2012 at 7:22 pm

I have fond memories of TV Amos and Andy, and Beulah. I really don't think they affected my racial world view– I loved the characters.

mayor_quimby October 1, 2012 at 7:31 pm

I can't believe my parents let me watch F Troop myself. That shit is out of rotation now, isn't it? I think the Native Americans must have hired some sort of lobbyist to keep it off the air….

Pragmatist2 October 1, 2012 at 7:33 pm

No way. Those residuals could build a whole string of casinos.

schvitzatura October 2, 2012 at 10:24 am

Intro bumper inspired Kevin Costner to make Dances With Wolves, with Costner cast in the Ken Berry role, except all serious and shit, right?

I'm guessing this means Haley Barbour will start lobbying to keep Petticoat Junction from being perpetually syndicated, in order to "rehabilitate" the image of his "constituency" (keep fucking that chicken, down by the station, Haley)…

nounverb911 October 1, 2012 at 6:56 pm

Editrix, is this a practice session for the Mittpocolypse on Wednesday?

fartknocker October 1, 2012 at 6:57 pm

Editorix, send an intern to Costco stat! You need to be stocking the bars for all us bitches.

Monsieur_Grumpe October 1, 2012 at 6:58 pm

I think I'm going to watch F-Troop reruns instead. I believe it will be a little more cerebral tube watching.

Gorillionaire October 1, 2012 at 6:59 pm

"I want a blanket of my own! All of these blankets say they're for US". (Actual joke quipped by Native American character on F Troop)

schvitzatura October 2, 2012 at 10:34 am

Probably the same joke was told at The Sha-wan-ga Lodge, back in 1961, during the annual highlight of the summer camp season, the Sha-wan-ga Tomahawk Follies…recycled Borscht Belt standards for the goyim, bubbe!

ChillBill October 1, 2012 at 6:59 pm

Scott is gonna gets scalped (with votes).

Callyson October 1, 2012 at 7:00 pm

Nebraska senate debate? No thanks, C-Span, the Wisconsin one was dull enough…

Estproph October 1, 2012 at 7:00 pm

New game:

1) get a fifth of rye.
2) every time Brown mentions his truck, take a shot. You should be blotto within minutes, and then the evening will be much more enjoyable.

Barrelhse October 1, 2012 at 7:14 pm

I like to start out with the sound muted.
"Damn, did he say 'truck' AGAIN?"

chascates October 1, 2012 at 7:00 pm

Ah, where are the Larry Storchs of today?

deanbooth October 1, 2012 at 7:32 pm

In congress.

Callyson October 1, 2012 at 7:00 pm

Jesus, there are going to be four of these things?

Callyson October 1, 2012 at 7:01 pm

Aw, how quaint, David Gregory hopes for a serious discussion of the issues. I love optimists…

Doktor Zoom October 1, 2012 at 7:02 pm

Hey, first question is about Injuns! How very astonishing!

Callyson October 1, 2012 at 7:02 pm

OH FOR FUCK'S SAKE not this business about the Native American non issue yet a-fucking-gain…

Callyson October 1, 2012 at 7:02 pm

Yes, she has answered the fucking question numerous times. Move the fuck on please.

natl_indecency_cmdr October 1, 2012 at 7:02 pm

Fuck, David Gregory's moderating? Fuck.

Angry_Marmot October 1, 2012 at 10:47 pm

David Gregory's hair is moderating; the rest of him just carries it from place to place.

FlownOver October 1, 2012 at 7:03 pm

Every "professor" or "checked the box," swallow firewater. The buffalo herd will appreciate the field-leveling effect.

Radiotherapy October 1, 2012 at 7:03 pm

She should ask Brown what a "Indian" looks like.

horsedreamer_1 October 2, 2012 at 7:11 am

Al Rosen? (Hey, he was in the Tribe.)

schvitzatura October 2, 2012 at 10:35 am

Espera Oscar de Corti, most definitely.

Callyson October 1, 2012 at 7:04 pm

Yeah, Scottie, you might have started with jobs and the economy in the first debate, instead of going on and on about the NA flap, if you wanted anyone to think you gave a shit about those issues…

chascates October 1, 2012 at 7:04 pm

I'll take this time to plug Vine Deloria, Jr.'s great book Custer Died For Your Sins.

Barrelhse October 1, 2012 at 7:19 pm
chascates October 1, 2012 at 7:23 pm

I certainly remember when that come out.

Doktor Zoom October 1, 2012 at 7:04 pm

NATIONALITY??????????????????????

natl_indecency_cmdr October 1, 2012 at 7:05 pm

One sad thing about this whole "Indian controversy" is that Scott Brown is appealing to the racists in Mass.

Serfville October 1, 2012 at 7:17 pm

A little known fact is Mass is just one DNA chain away from Alabama. I can't believe Liz is leading in the poles. Place is a hellhole.

Callyson October 1, 2012 at 7:05 pm

Evidence? I think the real issue is…anything else.

Asshole.

Callyson October 1, 2012 at 7:05 pm

Military records? Fuck that, Scottie, release your client records–you know, the same ones you want from Elizabeth…

Veritas78 October 1, 2012 at 7:05 pm

So much to talk about and we're stuck on this? Fuck you, Gregory.

Callyson October 1, 2012 at 7:06 pm

Daughter of a janitor

GO ELIZABETH!

Callyson October 1, 2012 at 7:06 pm

"I believe my mother"

Slam dunk!

Radiotherapy October 1, 2012 at 7:07 pm

He should give her a smallpox blanket.

Callyson October 1, 2012 at 7:08 pm

Oh yeah, kings and queens! Maybe Gregory will turn out to be OK as a moderator after all…

FlownOver October 1, 2012 at 7:09 pm

Even a blind pig…

fartknocker October 1, 2012 at 7:08 pm

Scott Brown likes stepping on his balls.

Boojum October 1, 2012 at 7:32 pm

So does Elizabeth Warren.

Callyson October 1, 2012 at 8:24 pm

Tonight, we are all Elizabeth Warren.

Doktor Zoom October 1, 2012 at 7:08 pm

Elizabeth Warren is a Red Indian.

Not_So_Much October 1, 2012 at 7:08 pm

Has he asked her about trading wampum for dirty out of state lawyering work yet?

Callyson October 1, 2012 at 7:09 pm

I love how Scottie keeps mentioning "jobs and the economy" and then moves on to discuss anything else…

Radiotherapy October 1, 2012 at 7:09 pm

Did you know my daughters are women???!?!?

Beowoof October 1, 2012 at 7:14 pm

And for two dollars they will take you around the world.

Boojum October 1, 2012 at 7:33 pm

$2.00 right here, in crisp, new Ameros.

Veritas78 October 1, 2012 at 7:09 pm

Gregory is fucking awful.

WordSaladNation October 1, 2012 at 7:09 pm

I'm logged into the Interwebtubes and watching the debate, BUT there is no alcohol in my house. What do I do?

Pragmatist2 October 1, 2012 at 7:44 pm

Send some neighborhood kid to the liquor store.

Barrelhse October 1, 2012 at 7:44 pm

Call a cab?

AlterNewt October 1, 2012 at 7:45 pm

Spin around in circles.

glasspusher October 1, 2012 at 8:59 pm

Huff paint thinner?

Ohforcripessake October 1, 2012 at 10:05 pm

Do you have a hammer?

Callyson October 1, 2012 at 7:09 pm

Professor Warren: I worked hard for this

Yeah, so fuck you, Scottie!

Veritas78 October 1, 2012 at 7:10 pm

She's got to start calling Brown a Republican. Over and over and over again.

Callyson October 1, 2012 at 7:10 pm

Client list question!

At least Gregory is a better moderator than the first one was…

Beowoof October 1, 2012 at 7:16 pm

As an attorney, my clients trust my discretion. As a pink hot pants wearing asshole, Brown clearly has none.

Callyson October 1, 2012 at 7:11 pm

Again with the laughter. Scottie, go back to the centerfold photo shots, asshole…

OzoneTom October 1, 2012 at 7:11 pm

She needs to come in full warpaint the next debate.

Callyson October 1, 2012 at 7:11 pm

Oh fuck you, Scottie, *any* attorney who is not a total slob would have a list of clients…

natl_indecency_cmdr October 1, 2012 at 7:12 pm

This is way more fun than the Wisc debate. Elizabeth Warren is feisty.

WordSaladNation October 1, 2012 at 7:12 pm

All I know about Lowell is this Death Cab for Cutie song. It's a damned good song.

natl_indecency_cmdr October 1, 2012 at 7:13 pm

oh he's a jag all right.

Radiotherapy October 1, 2012 at 7:13 pm

He's a jag alright.

Serfville October 1, 2012 at 7:13 pm

Lights? Meters? How sexist can this truck redneck be?

Beowoof October 1, 2012 at 7:17 pm

Oh I am sure he could give Todd Aikin a run for his money.

Serfville October 1, 2012 at 7:18 pm

What a C R E E P!

Callyson October 1, 2012 at 8:26 pm

Hey, stop scaring women!

(Seriously, the guy is a pig…)

Callyson October 1, 2012 at 7:13 pm

And you have a choice about taking contributions from Wall Street, asshole…

natl_indecency_cmdr October 1, 2012 at 7:16 pm

and the Kochs.

Mittens Howell, III October 1, 2012 at 7:14 pm

Cavalry charges?

Steverino247 October 1, 2012 at 8:57 pm

If you ain't CAV, you ain't shit!

Callyson October 1, 2012 at 7:14 pm

Oh yeah! He doesn't want to talk about his votes, so he keeps making charges!

Fight on, Elizabeth!

Radiotherapy October 1, 2012 at 7:18 pm

Those Indians are warriors.

WordSaladNation October 1, 2012 at 7:14 pm

Did Liz say that she'd been working in a field? Is she claiming to be black now?

Schmannnity October 1, 2012 at 7:15 pm

Normally, i would live blog to Wild Turkey 101 and Beef Stix, but I am obliged to switch to bologna and mayo on white with Yoohoo.

Veritas78 October 1, 2012 at 7:15 pm

This is a disaster. She's going on the defensive! STOP, Elizabeth! Turn the topic to Brown and his party.

Doktor Zoom October 1, 2012 at 7:16 pm

Aha– so the asbestos victims are calling Brown the liar. Nicely played, Liz.

Mittens Howell, III October 1, 2012 at 7:16 pm

Sen. Brown's staffers just stopped the war whoops and have taken up mock asbestos coughing.

Designer_Rants October 1, 2012 at 7:16 pm

What's wrong with asbestos? Ivory Tower Liberals…

WordSaladNation October 1, 2012 at 7:16 pm

Asbestos gets in someone's body without them knowing, just like FLUKE MAN!

Radiotherapy October 1, 2012 at 7:16 pm

STEVE MCQUEEN LIBEL!
With a bullet.

Veritas78 October 1, 2012 at 7:17 pm

We've spent twenty minutes dealing with his attacks on her. She's losing.

Callyson October 1, 2012 at 7:17 pm

I was protecting the asbestos victims…the asbestos victims know that.

Good comeback, Elizabeth!

And no, Scottie will not be responding to Elizabeth's point that the workers came out and said he is a liar…

Asshole.

C_R_Eature October 1, 2012 at 7:17 pm

David Fucking Gregory? Really?

Beowoof October 1, 2012 at 7:18 pm

As Charlie Pierce calls him, the Dancin Master, and he is doing a right wing waltz tonight.

C_R_Eature October 1, 2012 at 7:20 pm

He's an obsequious authoritarian pole-smoker. Alsotoo.

Jukesgrrl October 1, 2012 at 7:17 pm

With all due respect, you Wonketeers are LAUGHABLE.

C_R_Eature October 1, 2012 at 7:18 pm

When did this happen!?

Barrelhse October 1, 2012 at 8:05 pm

Bath salts?

Mittens Howell, III October 1, 2012 at 7:18 pm

Respect? pffft.

C_R_Eature October 1, 2012 at 7:22 pm

Really. There's no call for that kind of language.

natl_indecency_cmdr October 1, 2012 at 7:22 pm

Why, thank you.

chascates October 1, 2012 at 7:25 pm

Who came in?

C_R_Eature October 1, 2012 at 7:26 pm

Quick, put your pants back on!

kingofmeh October 1, 2012 at 7:27 pm

with all due respect: insults:: i'm not racist but: racism

Pragmatist2 October 1, 2012 at 7:46 pm

Why, thank you! Er – that was a compliment, right?

Jukesgrrl October 2, 2012 at 6:17 am

Yes, indeed.

OzoneTom October 1, 2012 at 7:17 pm

No, "professor" is definitely a pejorative when he says it.

Serfville October 1, 2012 at 7:18 pm

Unman him girl!

Callyson October 1, 2012 at 7:18 pm

And the coal workers said she is on her side also–STFU, Brown!

SorosBot October 1, 2012 at 7:19 pm

Whoa, the Boston channel's website just gave me an ad for classmates.com. That still exists? Has no one told them about Facebook yet?

WordSaladNation October 1, 2012 at 7:19 pm

Oh, thank GOD. We're not talking about stupid asbestos-y things anymore.

Jukesgrrl October 1, 2012 at 7:19 pm

He's a man of the people. He drives a truck. How many times does he have to tell that to THE PROFESSOR?

Beowoof October 1, 2012 at 7:20 pm

Well I am pretty sure he has the right wing buffoon vote locked up. Who else is that truck driving shit going to work on.

Callyson October 1, 2012 at 7:19 pm

And notice how the pushy asshole cut in when Gregory said Warren would have the last word. Wish to fuck the moderator hadn't let him get away with it…

Limeylizzie October 1, 2012 at 7:20 pm

My imaginary boyfriend, the gravel-voiced Sherrod Brown is on with Tweety, so I must listen/fap to him, but you all go ahead with this live-blogging. Is David Gregory as vile as he is on MTP?

Serfville October 1, 2012 at 7:21 pm

I so LOVE Sherrod! I hope he runs in 2016? Ya think?

Limeylizzie October 1, 2012 at 7:24 pm

No, I don't think that's in the cards, he seems very happy where he is. I do adore him though and his wife is awesome as well.

DemmeFatale October 1, 2012 at 7:30 pm

I met him at a stem-cell thing here a few years ago. What a genuine, unpretentious, guy.
Truly worthy of being your pretend boyfriend.

Limeylizzie October 1, 2012 at 7:34 pm

I have a horrible feeling he might be short….yes?

Boojum October 1, 2012 at 7:36 pm

Hey! Whatchu got against short?

Limeylizzie October 1, 2012 at 7:39 pm

I'm short myself, but I like a tall man in my pretend boyfriends.

DemmeFatale October 1, 2012 at 7:49 pm

I don't remember thinking he was particularly short. (my Dad was 6'9", so I'm not good at this), but he did play basketball in high school, so…

Limeylizzie October 1, 2012 at 7:56 pm

My husband is 6″4″ and I am just a smidge under 5″4″ but I do love a tall man.

Serfville October 1, 2012 at 7:20 pm

"Mr. Outsider" bullshit. Lay it on Brown.

Mittens Howell, III October 1, 2012 at 7:20 pm

Scott Brown: Wishy Washy. Check.

Jukesgrrl October 1, 2012 at 7:20 pm

He's sniffing. I thought that was Paul Ryan's thing.

Callyson October 1, 2012 at 7:20 pm

OH NO HE DIDN'T say he votes with the Dems 50% of the time! I don't have the link handy but I've seen very different figures, especially before Warren got into the race…

Veritas78 October 1, 2012 at 7:24 pm

He went from 7% to 28% when Warren got in the race. That's Ryan math!

C_R_Eature October 1, 2012 at 7:20 pm

I think Scott Brown is 1/16 Fukawi Indian.

Veritas78 October 1, 2012 at 7:21 pm

Okay, I'll give Gregory this bit, pressing whether he supports Romney.

Liz? LIZ!??!?!

Mittens Howell, III October 1, 2012 at 7:21 pm

Go on Scott, give Obama a hug, a Charlie Crist hug.

Callyson October 1, 2012 at 7:21 pm

We couldn't find any ads with you and Mitt Romney

OK, the moderator is bouncing back…

Doktor Zoom October 1, 2012 at 7:22 pm

Scott Brown's future as a national Republican figure is getting flushed at this very moment

Limeylizzie October 1, 2012 at 7:25 pm

I do hope you are correct, I wonder how the slimy EricCantor' s debate is going that's tonight as well isn't it.?

mille derps October 1, 2012 at 10:30 pm
Callyson October 1, 2012 at 7:22 pm

Really? Scottie wants to push how he worked for the congressional insider trading bill? Didn't that pass the Senate 98-1 or something?

Yeah, way to stick your neck out for gutsy bipartisanship, jerk…

Jukesgrrl October 1, 2012 at 7:23 pm

Liz, tell him YOU were a Republican until 1995.

Mittens Howell, III October 1, 2012 at 7:26 pm

Which, coincidentally, is the date that being a Republican became a diagnosable mental disorder.

Boojum October 1, 2012 at 7:40 pm

That must coincide with the asbestos years. She should totally use that. "See, I was a Republican then, so of course I was working for dicks, but even then I was trying to do the right thing. That's why the Republican kicked me out and I found my true home, away from the party of creeps like you."

Callyson October 1, 2012 at 7:23 pm

Of course Elizabeth can't name any Reeps she could work with–who the fuck *can* work with the Party of No?

mille derps October 1, 2012 at 10:32 pm

Naysayers?

(Oh, was that a rhetorical?)

Mittens Howell, III October 1, 2012 at 7:23 pm

Can you name any opium smoking hobos you'd co-anchor with, David Gregory?

Designer_Rants October 1, 2012 at 7:26 pm

Oh, we can do better than that… A handsome, well dressed and photogenic sociopathic compulsive liar and thief. #sweetenthedeal

C_R_Eature October 1, 2012 at 7:28 pm

The real question: "Can you name any real journalists you would co-anchor with"

Callyson October 1, 2012 at 8:30 pm

No.

Jukesgrrl October 1, 2012 at 7:24 pm

Why didn't she get to rebut his ridiculous statements about being bi-partisan? First he says he's the most bi-partisan then in the next sentence he says he's the second most bi-partisan. You can't be both.

Is David Gregory seriously going to hew to this "Both Sides Do It", Everyone Must Compromise" Villager Bullshit after the last three years of Republican Senate Filibuster abuse?
To mention JUST ONE THING?

imissopus October 1, 2012 at 7:29 pm

Yes. Because he is David Gregory.

Callyson October 1, 2012 at 7:25 pm

Would you vote for Mitch McConnell?

ANSWER THE FUCKING QUESTION Scottie!

finallyhappy October 1, 2012 at 7:25 pm

So I made a joke about Portlandia on Twitter and Wonkette is giving me Powell's Books ads?? Creepy(not Powell's- the power of Rebecca's secret cameras)

Jukesgrrl October 1, 2012 at 7:27 pm

I got the Powell's ad, too, and I'm not even on Twitter.

mille derps October 1, 2012 at 10:34 pm

Me too, & me neither…

Doktor Zoom October 1, 2012 at 10:54 pm

The Powell's link is now a semi-permanent part of the sidebar–actually a better percentage to Your Wonkette on book purchases than Amazon.

Plus, for godssakes, it's freakin' POWELLS, which is all kinds of nice.

(Your Doktor Zoom lobbied the Editrix for that)

bobbert October 1, 2012 at 11:26 pm

I just committed a bit of free shipping with them last night…

BerkeleyBear October 2, 2012 at 1:16 am

Glad to hear it – I was getting paranoid since I live in Portlandia and have an order pending at Powell (put in just before the ads started popping).

BTW, said order is held up because books listed as "in stock" online are actually coming in from Tennessee, raising some interesting questions for me about what their logistics chart looks like. I actually bought the idea they were a local only institution, even though the sheer size and numerous branches suggested that was at least partially questionable.

greenloner October 2, 2012 at 1:34 am

I believe Powell's started out in life as a Portland store and has expanded in the last ten years or so to more far-flung places, Chicago for instance.

Chet Kincaid_ October 2, 2012 at 8:14 am

Powell's Bookstores in Chicago have been around for 40 years. Chicago was first, Portland was second. But they are independent businesses:

Powell's roots began in Chicago, where Michael Powell, as a University of Chicago graduate student, opened his first bookstore in 1970. Encouraged by friends and professors, including novelist Saul Bellow, Michael borrowed $3,000 to assume a lease on a bookstore. The venture proved so successful that he managed to repay the loan within two months.

Michael's father Walter, a retired painting contractor, worked one summer with Michael in the Chicago store. He so enjoyed his experience that upon returning to Portland he opened his own used bookstore.

Lascauxcaveman October 2, 2012 at 1:03 am

Powell's is a Mecca of sorts. It should appear on every thinking person's sidebar.

And actually more welcome than the PETA not-actually-naked or-even-a-little-bit-shocking softcore porn teasers. I mean, a bleach blonde in a bathing suit fellating a cucumber? This is supposed to make me want to click?

For the record, I always click the conservative ads when they show up; just can't resist the idea of Ann Coulter's publishers funding my Wonkette.

Serfville October 1, 2012 at 7:25 pm

How much testosterone did Scotty shoot up before these debates? He's the one scaring women, not Liz.

Doktor Zoom October 1, 2012 at 7:25 pm

I do not like your question. I will make the point I really want to make. Fuck you, Mr. Question-asker.

C_R_Eature October 1, 2012 at 7:25 pm

WOULD YOU VOTE FOR MITCH MCCONNELL GODDAMMIT!?

JustPixelz October 1, 2012 at 7:25 pm

Did Warren change her name to "she" or "that one" or something?

FlownOver October 1, 2012 at 7:25 pm

A complete dick, with or without staples.

Jukesgrrl October 1, 2012 at 7:25 pm

Gregory is such a tool. Why is he letting Brown rebut, but she gets an about-face question?

natl_indecency_cmdr October 1, 2012 at 7:35 pm

It will be interesting to see how much time each candidate has when this is over. It feels like Brown gets more.

Jukesgrrl October 2, 2012 at 6:18 am

He rolled over her and Gregory let him.

Veritas78 October 1, 2012 at 7:25 pm

Oh, he's an Independent now? Like Angus King and Bernie Sanders?

SorosBot October 1, 2012 at 7:27 pm

He should start the Massachusetts for Brown Party!

Radiotherapy October 1, 2012 at 7:26 pm

He gave Bernie Sanders a blowjob?

SorosBot October 1, 2012 at 7:26 pm

OK, finally getting a feed and they're talking about bipartisanship, zzzz. And from that Playgirl spread I think Brown is the most bi.

Callyson October 1, 2012 at 7:26 pm

"I'm completely disgusted by what's going on there"

Scottie, Gregory's question requires a simple yes or no…Will you vote for McConnell or not?

Undecided…after two years? Yeah, that's the decisive leader Mass needs…

Veritas78 October 1, 2012 at 7:26 pm

Okay, she landed a punch!

SorosBot October 1, 2012 at 7:26 pm

Brown does not want to talk about the turtle at all.

Doktor Zoom October 1, 2012 at 7:26 pm

There are two Scott Browns. Bazinga!

Veritas78 October 1, 2012 at 7:26 pm

That's it, Liz!

Callyson October 1, 2012 at 7:27 pm

Elizabeth is doing much better in this debate: she is really standing up for herself. Oh yeah!

WordSaladNation October 1, 2012 at 7:27 pm

Yeah, I just call it "The Commonwealth." Or "Commie." Wait a second…

Doktor Zoom October 1, 2012 at 7:28 pm

Excellent battling back to the top of the hill, Liz!

Serfville October 1, 2012 at 7:28 pm

Brown is not an intellectual, Liz is, in the long run, as here, she will beat him with her brains, period.

Callyson October 1, 2012 at 7:28 pm

Fear in Scottie's eyes when Elizabeth hit him on voting to lay off cops and teachers and firefighters…that's it, Elizabeth, go in for the kill!

WordSaladNation October 1, 2012 at 7:28 pm

"I'm not a student in your classroom"?! WHAT THE FUCK?!

You go, Liz! Unemployment insurance! Jesus, is he RUDE.

Well. that wasn't very ladylike.

mayor_quimby October 1, 2012 at 7:28 pm

I'm not a student in your classsroom? Very cunty, Scottie!

boobookitteh October 1, 2012 at 7:29 pm

I hate him so much.

SorosBot October 1, 2012 at 7:31 pm

I feel like taking a ruler to his knuckles.

mayor_quimby October 1, 2012 at 7:34 pm

The kind of ruler with that little sharp-ass piece of metal in the edge. I believe in prison a piece of wood with embedded metal is called a shiv – do they still allow those in schools?

natl_indecency_cmdr October 1, 2012 at 7:29 pm

"I'm not your student" Oh fuck you Brown.

Callyson October 1, 2012 at 7:29 pm

"I'm not a student in your classroom"

Yeah, because she would fail your sorry ass if you were…

(Lots of boos from the audience over that line–good for them!)

SorosBot October 1, 2012 at 7:29 pm

Sure, the jobs bill would have created jobs, but TAXES!

Doktor Zoom October 1, 2012 at 7:29 pm

I wonder if the Editrix still thinks "Professor" isn't supposed to be a slur, after that "I'm not a student in your classroom" "Zinger!".

Mittens Howell, III October 1, 2012 at 7:30 pm

David Gregory, you are as poetic as fuck.

montreal_bruin October 1, 2012 at 7:30 pm

Just joining in to give a true fact: According to Robert Mitchum's autobiography, Forrest Tucker (Sgt. O'Rourke of "F-Troop") had the largest penis in Hollywood. He (Tucker) called it "The Chief."

C_R_Eature October 1, 2012 at 7:31 pm

And just how did Robert Mitchum know this?

No. Don't tell me.

montreal_bruin October 1, 2012 at 7:36 pm

Tucker was part of the Mitchum bros. version of the Rat Pack. Mitchum also got contractual permission to smoke weed from studio head Howard Hughes. Can't make this shit up!

Milton Berle libel!

He was also famous for whipping it out, and apparently seriously pissed off everyone on Saturday Night Live by doing so. At least he apparently kept it in his pants for The Muppet Show.

DemmeFatale October 1, 2012 at 8:00 pm

When I was a kid, we were living in Japan, and my parents were gob-smacked to see a movie starring "Forrest Fucker" advertised on a huge movie marquee.

montreal_bruin October 1, 2012 at 8:20 pm

I can remember laughing as a teen at a marquee that looked like it said "CUNT EASTWOOD." It occurred to me later in life that that's why when a movie house uses FLICK in its name, they'll usually write it "FLiCK."

viennawoods13 October 1, 2012 at 10:32 pm

When I was working at a recreational vehicle dealership back in the mists of time, I was helping a guy change a sign from "Truck Trailers" to "Fifth Wheels". He was being lazy and changing a a couple of letters at a time as I handed them to him. I glanced up at the sign and told him to get the UCK off really fast- before passing motorists started clutching their pearls. This was 1980, when people were a lot more sensitive about that sort of thing.

C_R_Eature October 1, 2012 at 7:30 pm

Excuse me, I'm not a student in your classroom.

Well, first of all, you'd never pass the entrance exams, you anti-intellectual fuckstick.

SorosBot October 1, 2012 at 7:31 pm

Nobody gives a shit about the deficit, David Gregory. Oh but Brown suggests slashing government benefits of course. But he's bi-partisan!

Callyson October 1, 2012 at 7:31 pm

What? Brown never said how he would vote on Simpson Bowles?

Christ, he's as bad as Mittens and Lyin' Ryan when it comes to specifics…

OzoneTom October 1, 2012 at 7:31 pm

The lunatics are taking over the asylum. Gregory is unable to keep things under control.

Veritas78 October 1, 2012 at 7:31 pm

Gregory doesn't ask him "you're Mr. Bipartisan, why don't you get Reid to bring it to floor?"

JustPixelz October 1, 2012 at 7:31 pm

Apparently Warren is some kind of "Professor" with "students". Maybe she'll grade Brown.

The lorax was a terrible moderator, but he was cute like a muppet.

If Warren can convince Massachusetters that Brown is, in fact, a Republican… that should do it.

Callyson October 1, 2012 at 7:36 pm

So ending subsidies to oil companies = a tax increase now? Christ…

SorosBot October 1, 2012 at 7:36 pm

Now Scotty's going all-in on why we need to keep shoveling money at oil companies. Oh and ending subsidies is not actually a tax hike.

Why does Gregory cut off Warren for talking too long but yet Brown ramble on as long as he wants?

natl_indecency_cmdr October 1, 2012 at 7:38 pm

Because David Gregory is a piece of shit.

viennawoods13 October 1, 2012 at 10:35 pm

Stated succinctly.

Gregory is a puffed up sexist. I've seen him do this to female candidates before.

He's awful. I hadn't seen him moderate a debate before and so hadn't noted that, but he's really going a lot easier on Brown here.

Because he's a republican and dances with Karl Rove?

Sort a Dances with Wolves, if you will. Careful Dave they will devour you at first chance.

Doktor Zoom October 1, 2012 at 7:40 pm

How about regulating Wall Street, the way Liz has?????

JustPixelz October 1, 2012 at 7:37 pm

Brown says raising taxes causes higher prices, but cutting taxes creates jobs. If taxes affect something, it should affect it the same way in each direction. I give him an "F" in Economics 101.

But he also announced that he supports the troops!

WordSaladNation October 1, 2012 at 7:44 pm

Can I say something to all of you? I fucking HATE in debates when candidates talk about an individual person to try to make their larger points. Correlation does not equal causation, or something. It just annoys me.

JustPixelz October 1, 2012 at 7:44 pm

Brown griping about uncertainty. I hope Romney is watching so he knows how his secrecy is destroying America.

bikerlaureate October 1, 2012 at 7:49 pm

That's nebulous and hard to prove, as well as vaguely scary.

It must've scored well with focus groups or something. He used the same excuse last debate for why businesses aren't hiring.

Ain't nothin' long about Brown but his gaze.

Uncertainty about how long they can continue to fuck everybody over is really rough on companies, for Pete's sake!

Jukesgrrl October 1, 2012 at 7:45 pm

The answer to regulatory uncertainly is no regulations. Right, Scotty?? That's what your party says.

Beowoof October 1, 2012 at 7:46 pm

Sure those pesky air traffic control regulations should be the first to go.

Oh shit! Brownie trying to play the uncertainty card? Senator Brown I knew Professor Heisenberg, and you are a just a wienie, not a Werner.

ed: Although an olde, not that olde, obvs.

People are scared to hire

No, Scottie, that's not due to taxes–that's because consumer demand is fucking flat and government austerity and cutbacks do not help.

natl_indecency_cmdr October 1, 2012 at 7:50 pm

What about Tony Curtis?

Well Janet Leigh learned not to trust him.

Mittens Howell, III October 1, 2012 at 7:47 pm

Thank you DG, condescender-in-chief.

Doktor Zoom October 1, 2012 at 7:47 pm

Elizabeth Warren does not get to interrupt. Only Scott Brown gets to interrupt.

SHHHHH!

C_R_Eature October 1, 2012 at 7:47 pm

Did Gregory just shut Warren down cold again?

It's time to write some motherfucking letters goddammit.

Callyson October 1, 2012 at 7:47 pm

And now Scottie has to weasel out of his opposition to the DREAM act–

Oh fuck you, it is not amnesty, asshole!

(More boos–good!)

Jukesgrrl October 1, 2012 at 7:47 pm

Even when Brown is congratulating someone it sounds perfunctory and insincere.

Mittens Howell, III October 1, 2012 at 7:47 pm

Calm down Elizabeth Warren, you'll have a chance to respond in the next 'Letters To The Editor'.

SorosBot October 1, 2012 at 7:47 pm

"Back-door amnesty" and telling an immigrant to basically go fuck himself. Asshat.

Serfville October 1, 2012 at 7:47 pm

The DREAM Act is being born with a silver spoon up yer Morman butt, & investing all that dough in Bain Crapital, then fucking up running for Prez, in the worst Prez campaign of all time!

HouseOfTheBlueLights October 1, 2012 at 8:40 pm

Just borrow money from your parents, and you can do it too!

DemmeFatale October 1, 2012 at 8:54 pm

There should be a prize for, "born with a silver spoon up yer Mormon butt."

Hey DemmeFatale, here's the thing, I am so sick of Brown laying on that fake pahk yer cah accent in these debates, he didn't talk like that on 60 minutes, his accent is so put on and fake. Hence,"born with the silver spoon up yer Mormon butt" award winning comment was born. Thank you!

Incitefully_Joe October 1, 2012 at 7:48 pm

Driver's licenses for undocumented residents should be a pretty good idea, once you realize that the alternative is A WHOLE MESS OF UNLICENSED DRIVERS.

C_R_Eature October 1, 2012 at 7:48 pm

David Gregory should be Banned from any further debates until he becomes a journalist.

shelwood46 October 1, 2012 at 9:12 pm

Do they teach How Not to Be an Asshat in Journalism School?

C_R_Eature October 1, 2012 at 9:17 pm

If they do, it's probably an elective – like "Journalistic Ethics" or "Geography".

Callyson October 1, 2012 at 7:48 pm

Yeah, because people who were brought to this nation when they were children shouldn't expect an education. They should incorporate if they want to be treated like human beings!

WordSaladNation October 1, 2012 at 7:48 pm

Oh good, a lightning round!

Hey, I spend $20 a week on coffee. Oh, that's LESS than $2 billion. Sorry.

Pragmatist2 October 1, 2012 at 7:50 pm

David Gregory's last job was a a replacement ref in the NFL.

Beowoof October 1, 2012 at 7:53 pm

Hopefully his next job will be shoveling horseshit at a reservation in Oklahoma.

And not even previously from a cool Lingerie League gig.

C_R_Eature October 1, 2012 at 8:09 pm

I imagine he was way better at that than this "Moderator" thing.

JustPixelz October 1, 2012 at 7:50 pm

Brown wants more H1B visas. That's how employers bring computer programmers, engineers and other professionals to America from India and elsewhere at lower wages. If there are no unemployed programmers, then open enough H1Bs to meet demand. Otherwise, hire from in-house.

SorosBot October 1, 2012 at 7:54 pm

Importantly, H1B visas attach immigration status to employment, allowing employers to exploit the hell out of the immigrant employees. So of course Brown loves it.

C_R_Eature October 1, 2012 at 7:50 pm

Elizabeth, after you're elected, you have my permission to tell David Gregory to Go Fuck Himself.

natl_indecency_cmdr October 1, 2012 at 7:53 pm

C_R_Eature October 1, 2012 at 7:55 pm

Perhaps a Nut Shot, then?

Callyson October 1, 2012 at 7:50 pm

Well, Warren was pretty specific about what she would do–get the troops out, stat. Let's see how vague Scottie is in response…

imissopus October 1, 2012 at 7:50 pm

Justice Scalia isn't very popular with this crowd.

Elena Kagan is.

Scalia and Kagan? Brown he has a confuzzeled.

WordSaladNation October 1, 2012 at 7:52 pm

Oh, shit. Liz. That was fucking incredible. You go, girlfriend!

SorosBot October 1, 2012 at 7:52 pm

Brown just praised Justices Scalia, Kennedy and Roberts. Then he remembers he has to pretend be "bipartisan" and throws in Sotomayor.

Veritas78 October 1, 2012 at 8:03 pm

That was so real. I almost could see him think!

SorosBot October 1, 2012 at 8:05 pm

I was about to say "but he claims to be bipartisan!", but then he throws in Sotomayor at the end, and you could tell he was thinking the exact same thing and realized he had to throw in a token liberal.

Why has Mass never elected a female senator or governor?

Good reply–very calm response. Fuck Gregory for trying to get a rise out of her.

Mittens Howell, III October 1, 2012 at 7:54 pm

Does Scott Brown know 'professor' is different from 'pole dancer'?

You can tell this is a Nebraska debate when the first question is about agriculture. Also fuck our agriculture policy, which is solely directed in the interests of the farmers instead of the consumers.

Don't forget Archer Daniels Midland.

Congress certainly doesn't.

Negropolis October 1, 2012 at 9:29 pm

And, not even farmers in the traditional sense that we understand the word, but corporate farmers. I don't begrudge policy that properly compensates a farm or collection of farms for what can be hard work under often unpredictable circumstances. But, giving these factory farms money to continue to grow shitting soy beans and corn and pigs will be the death of this nation, health-wise. We need more localized direction.

Deb Fischer knows 143 words. What a moron.

Eric walked out to the podium, and 47-50% of the crowd immediately wanted to rush the stage and kick him in the nutz. It was just like Jack White at Radio City .

vtxmcrider October 2, 2012 at 12:43 am

Eric Cantor always looks like he is sniffing his own farts. Or maybe he is just a more discreet David Vitter.

Chet Kincaid_ October 2, 2012 at 8:31 am

Powell showed up on the Ed Show after his debate. Does he have any kind of chance against Cantor?

Veritas78 October 1, 2012 at 8:11 pm

I don't know. She let both of them control the content for the first half hour, which rehashed all his charges against her. But it did make them look stupid, and towards the end, when Brown said perfessor 8 times in 12 words, it looked sad. He'll win our suburban-trash vote, though.
I'd rather see her tie the anchor of the republican party to his legs and push him off a pier.

natl_indecency_cmdr October 1, 2012 at 8:22 pm

Why do the moderators call Fischer a Senator? Is she a state senator? And yes I'm now watching the Nebraska debate. Which has been nothing but polite-ish rebuttals for the past 20 minutes.

SorosBot October 1, 2012 at 8:27 pm

These two are both so boring and monotone. Still I'm glad to hear Kerrey point out that dramatic cuts to government spending will, you know, increase unemployment.

natl_indecency_cmdr October 1, 2012 at 8:31 pm

We need an unruly UMass crowd. And a bigger stick, evidently.

FlyOverGirl October 1, 2012 at 10:19 pm

Yes, she's a state senator. She passed legislation to fund roads while cutting education. What a winner.

Negropolis October 2, 2012 at 1:14 am

That's damned-near enlightened for a Republican from where I'm from. Here, they'd cut education and road funding. Actually, that's exactly what they do. They've cut roading funcing here and Michigan and education and started taxing pensions and other retirement income…to pay for a massive business tax cut. You know, 'cause Freedom.

SorosBot October 1, 2012 at 8:39 pm

As Fischer keeps trotting out the same old Republican lies on the ACA, it's nice to see Kerrey call them out as lies.

FlyOverGirl October 1, 2012 at 10:18 pm

If only the local media would do the same. If anyone wants some fun, dig up the articles from this summer about Fischer getting millions a year in grazing subsidies whle she tries to cut government. Stupid welfare rancher.

SorosBot October 1, 2012 at 10:49 pm

So no wonder she was so adamant about keeping all the wasteful agriculture and ethanol subsidies; not that Kerrey was better on those issues. Stupid regionalism; and stupid Senate that gives empty rural states the same power as California and New York.

Look, I have some great stuff to sell y'all. I have rifles, balls, powder, whiskey, and blankets. (Please don't ask about the latter too much).

I wish our politicians were more like in some other countries. In a South American country last year a female parlamentarian punched a male colleague right in the face on the chamber floor – twice. That is what Elizabeth should have done at the end of the debate – to both of those guys.

OT: Am I the only one looking forward to the Obama-Romney debate for no other reason than to see Romney try to grab Obama's arm like he did to Rick Perry, and Barry just break that shit off at the elbow?

I'm itching for this thing to be over, can you tell?

bibliotequetress October 2, 2012 at 1:45 pm

I wanna see if Mitt challenges Obama to a bet.

The floor just collapsed for Romney in NH (52%-37%). The Demonrats may win both houses this time . So if Liz wins, she can get some shit done. If Scott wins, he can twiddle his thumbs for six years. As far as Gregory, he can work for FoxNews and lick Roger Aisle's 1 ft taint.

Negropolis October 2, 2012 at 2:55 am

Well, considering you need 60 votes in the Senate to get anything done (unless Reid grows a fuckin' pair, already), she won't be able to get much done, but keeping it in our hands is necessary if only for symbolic purposes.

Warren has a fifteen point lead over Brown among women, who the fuck told Scotty it'd be a good idea to be such a huge douche bag toward Liz?

Too busy drinking to watch. Who won the blue ribbon…that Injun lady or the nekkid d00d?

Jukesgrrl October 2, 2012 at 6:34 am

Nekkid dood and his douche bag moderator tied up the Injun lady. They tried to set her on fire but the audience said NO.

Well, at least the Cowboys lost. In spectacular fashion. BWAHAHAHAH!

So, funny thing this morning is how people are trying to make hay about Warren being unable to mention a Republican senator who isn't retiring who she could work with.

Of course, when Brown gave his "I'm bipartisan" answer, he mentioned three Republicans, two of whom are retiring, and also OH YEAH HE IS ALSO A REPUBLICAN SO BEING ABLE TO WORK WITH REPUBLICANS DOES NOT MAKE HIM BIPARTISAN.

We are drinking pink Champagne, because it was literally the only booze in the house.

Pink champagne is your fallback stock?

WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN ALL MY LIFE?!?!?!?!?!?!

Thanks for the quaint, nostalgic reminder that the television show "F Troop" was simply one of the worst, most offensive, most stupid, most backwards, most idiotic, most un-funny, most un-comedic–and just plain terrible–television shows in the history of television.

Not “in” in that way, dirty Booj.

Ohhhhhh….nope, don't understand. Either yer in or ya ain't.

A little bit pregnant is like a little bit Republican. You still need an abortion.

Terry October 2, 2012 at 6:44 am

The Senators and Orioles in 1969, I think.

actor212 October 2, 2012 at 9:32 am

That incarnation of the Nats never made it to the playoffs until they did it in 1996 as the Rangers. And they played in the same division as Baltimore and there was no wild card.

glasspusher October 2, 2012 at 10:37 am

A lovely thought, but it was the Orioles against the Twins in '69. Had to look that one up. I would have remembered if the Senators made it in then, because their manager that year, while doing OK, was better known for other things he did on a baseball diamond…arguably the greatest hitter who ever lived.

Terry October 2, 2012 at 10:48 am

The Senators and Orioles both had good years in 1969. I think 1969 was the only year the Senators had a good year. That's what I was thinking of. Sorry to confuse things.
