I don't care where or when these debates happen, but I am incredibly optimistic about the potential for lulz.

He's terrified, plain and simple. He can't win in a public forum, and he knows it - that's why there's so much private money doing his fighting for him. He's also terrified about debating in a public forum that isn't biased in his direction, which is why he not only specified the non-endorsement pledge, but refused to debate on MSNBC.

Scott Brown is a coward.

Instead of debates they should just have a truck tug of war

I see no problem with refusing to participate in a debate where the head of the sponsoring organization endorsed my opponent

I knew it. I totally knew she was. Ha ha! Now you Dems are in for it!

But, you know, Scott is lucky he's not in Arizona. Sheriff Joe might arrest him for campaigning while Brown.

I wonder if Scott Brown will slip up and call her a "book-smart academic"

Great. She hasn't. Why isn't he debating?

I agree. But he already accepted the invitation to debate, and THEN got all butthurt when Vicky Kennedy told him she wouldn't stay neutral in the race.

It's not like ANYONE in Massachusetts is on the fence about this race, and is just waiting till Ted Kennedy's wife has had her say.

cameroncrazy1984: Great. She hasn't. Why isn't he debating?


Because his entire campaign platform is "I have a truck, and could theoretically be a moderate, even though I've voted with the GOP 99% of the time", and his opponent was a state debating champion at age 13.

She's the head of the board. I doubt she handles the day to day operations or has any interest in micromanaging the debate. It's an excuse to get out of a debate he knows he can't win.

Nah, he knows this is MA and he has to be a little bit subtle. Maybe just a Cleveland Chief Wahoo lapel pin.

Maybe, but the next day the Herald would have a huge headline about how Scott Brown is a Chief's fan, with a pouting Tom Brady next to it.

Coward, plain and simple.

She'll wipe the floor with him and he knows it.

I love how no one in the Commonwealth really gave a shiat about that...

It's a shame Scott Brown will win.

He'll win a debate he won't even be in?

That's a hell of a thing.

I could have called it a wash since he was on heavy painkillers, but I didn't.

I just have a feeling this will be closer than people think.

The GOP SuperPACs will spend millions hammering Warren with men and seniors since that seat is very important to the GOP and they already can write off every other race. Millions from Northeast GOPers will poor into the state. Warren will be spending the next five months talking about how she's not that liberal.

Nah, he knows this is MA and he has to be a little bit subtle. Maybe just a Cleveland Chief Wahoo lapel pin.

Red Sox fans would eat him alive. If there's one thing Scotty2Hottie knows how to do, it's pander.


Hey, did you hear his commercial comparing himself to the Celtics? Which aired in the days after the Celtics were eliminated? He even failed at pandering correctly.

Here's a link to the full awful-ness. I must have heard it a dozen times on the radio, even after the Celtics were knocked out. I'm guessing the average Masshole didn't take too kindly to that.
