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.

Elizabeth Warren is afraid of not debating. Coward.

No. No you could not have called that a wash. Do you need me to punch you in the statisticals?

This is the fellow that bet me that Rick Perry would be the GOP nominee.

Spaz-master: He continues to troll the hell out of you lefties. It will be funny as hell if he wins.


Well, he probably will - he's the incumbent, he's given the people no especially egregious reason to fire him so far, and they presumably knew who he was when they elected him. Which makes this all the more mystifying, to me.
I understand that he is within his rights to decline any debate, for any reason - but why?
I don't live there, and it doesn't really concern me - but I always wonder about weird behavior like that.
Like maybe the guy has something, you know - "wrong" with him.
I've known guys like that.
I'm sure you have too.

Cletus C.: Any former wife of Ted Kennedy is very skilled at turning a blind eye.


This. And we need to stop it with the damn American royal families (Bush, Kennedy, etc).

FormlessOne: 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.


And that's why he's already agreed to participate in two other debates and agreed on two others that Warren hasn't signed on to? Brown is very lucky in his enemies, as they're largely rage-blinded partisan hacks like you.

Corvus: tenpoundsofcheese: FormlessOne: He can't win in a public forum, and he knows it

uhhh, you do know that he is the incumbent right? that he won is a public forum before?

where he could lie about what he would do in congress. Now that his voting record showed he lied it might be harder to make those lies work again.


which is exactly 0bama's problem.

Brave Sir Brown ran away.

Bravely ran away, away.

When danger reared its ugly head,

He bravely turned his tail and fled

Yes, Brave Sir Brown turned about

And gallantly he chickened out

Bravely taking to his feet

He beat a very brave retreat

Bravest of the brave Sir Brown

Petrified of being dead

Soiled his pants then brave Sir Brown

Turned away and fled.

Bravely good Sir Brown was not at all afraid

To have his eyeballs skewered ...

... and his kidneys burnt and his nipples skewered off

No. This is a Fark politics thread. No one reads the article. This is more of a support group than a discussion group.

Mrbogey: Felgraf: Mrbogey: Brown

His partisanship record is 71%. That puts him on par with Olympia Snowe and slightly more partisan than Susan Collins as well as makes him less partisan than 97 other senators including all Democrats.

Now that you've been corrected, I'm sure you'll change your opinion.

Yes, but *which* votes did he break party lines on? Was it only ones where the republicans were going to lose anyways? Was he ever the deciding vote, or did he ever choose to break party ranks even if the 'other' side *wasn't* going to win? (Vote to break fillibuster even if there weren't going to be enough votes to break fillibuster, etc).

So "99%" is just slang for "only the votes I think are important".

Did you know 99% of the time people think you're moving the goalposts?


Did you know that 100% of the time, my name isn't what_now?

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.

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.

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.
