3_Butt_Cheeks: what_now: HEY GUYS I HAVE NOTHING AT ALL TO RUN WITH, SO I'M GOING TO MAKE INDIAN NOISES!!!!

I'm not from Mass thankfully, but I can't say I've heard much about either one being all that bad except she lied about shiat and he has hot kids and drives a truck.


The only people that care about that are the blowhards on 96.9 WTTK and their angry callers. Howie Carr probably cares, but I stay away from that jackass.

She didn't even lie, really. She repeated the kind of thing you hear in your family, "we've got some indian blood." She doesn't have paperwork, though, so when people asked she admitted she can't prove it and hasn't brought it up again.

The idea that she think's she's all sorts of Native American is one of the stretchier stretches in politics today.

I generally only care about small deceptions when they are made by people I dislike. It's strange how I hold my enemies to a higher standard.

Debeo Summa Credo: This woman gets worse and worse. I still hope the dems keep the senate, because the GOP is worse, be she's just so full of shiat.

/i know, she's a politician now.


What exactly did she say that's full of shiat in your opinion? Her criticism of Dimon?

Just because Scott Brown was the sole person to put taxpayers and not banks on the hook for $19 Billion in financial regulations after the bailouts does not mean there is a link between him and the banks, subby.
 
2012-06-13 04:17:50 PM  

notmtwain: Her campaign was always going to hinge on the contrast between herself and Brown, whose vote for the Dodd-Frank financial reform bill was contingent upon weakening the Volcker Rule.


If she can't restate that argument more plainly, she will lose.


BEER GOOD. FIRE BAD.

LasersHurt: The idea that she think's she's all sorts of Native American is one of the stretchier stretches in politics today.


I initially thought the same, until the whole 'minority Harvard professor" or whatever. If she was just yakking about family stories, that type thing shouldn't have gone to that level.

And Brown needs to trot out his hot daughters more.

Politically speaking though, I can't say I've heard the hardcore wharrgarble from left or right about them.

Oh, my bad, I thought she was the one that ran for the seat in 2009, but apparently that was Coakley (the AG). My mistake, I've apparently watched too much TV lately and am mixed up there.

In my defense, I'm operating off of general knowledge and don't actually live in the relevant area.

I'm the same way, 1/32 Cherokee if I recall correctly. But I'll be damned if I have a document saying so. For that matter, I'd be hard-pressed to prove that I'm 1/4 Scot... or any other ethnic background for that matter.

What about Old Spice commercials and the LA Riots? Wonder if Cher will let her use 'Half Breed' as her theme song?
 
2012-06-13 04:20:22 PM  
She's a fairly liberal Democrat in Massachusetts, who isn't running her campaign like a total retard. That alone gives her pretty good odds against a Republican.

How dare she accuse Scott Brown of being in the bag for Wall Street?

It's not as though they've contributed more to his campaign than every other senatorial candidate in the country. Oh, wait.

I'm still unsure what makes her "strong". Her arms look pretty skimpy, and her pecs are super-flabby.

I'm confused as to why arguments by someone on the left against a republican being clearly bought by the Koch brothers and their ilk are completely baseless, yet the "Obama is a Wall Street puppet!" argument isn't.

If she can't restate that argument more plainly, she will lose.

It's plain to me. Oh, you mean if she can't make it understandable to the millions of ignorant morons who vote and can't be bothered to have even the most basic understand of the issues because American Idol is on, she will lose. Gotcha.

FriarReb98
She's a book-smarts academic

Hurrrrrrr. Smart people suck. They don't have no common sense!
Are you 12 years old, a Republican, or both?

To be fair, "smart people suck" appears to be the Scott Brown campaign strategy and it just might work. Ignorant voters hate it when a candidate appears to be smarter than they are. They like guys with trucks who they could see having a beer with...

Jackson Herring

Every Scott Brown commercial pronounces the word Professor with the same inflection one would use for, say, "anal leakage"


Of course they do. The GOP is the party of anti-intellectuals.

Try this: Elizabeth Brown was screaming for the reforms that would have prevented the Crash years before it happened. She was such a respected expert on this that she was appointed to head the board Congress created to watchdog the TARP program with overwhelming bipartisan support.

She basically created the roadmap for what would become the CFPB in her academic writings well before the crash. That's why she was Obama's first choice to head it.

Between the passage of Dodd-Frank and her formal nomination to be CFPB director the Wall Street interests poured so much money into the GOP that they were bribed into blocking Warren's confirmation. So she's decided that if the Wall-Street interests can bribe Congress to keep her from cleaning them up, she'll ask to voters of MA to Send her to congress so she can clean both up.
