    That is awesome.

    On the serious side though, if she can win over the "southies" she's a lock.

    I was thinking "man, that hairdo makes her look way younger. Oh. Now I get it."

    "To Scott Brown ... I promise to replace the pair of pants he shit when he found out he might have to run against me. Seriously, I do want to congratulate Senator Brown for starting the Consumer Protection Bureau. {pops a tall boy} Oh wait. That was me."

    The man's gonna be trounced so bad, despite his huge corporate-sponsored war chest.

    Congress needs more Elizabeth Warrens.

    The trouble with trouncing Scott Brown is that it sends the message to other Republicans that there's no point in being moderate. The Dems won't vote for you anyway and the Tea Party will hate you, so you might as well just obstruct like the rest of the Reeps.

    Not that I am advocating a vote for Scott Brown on that basis. Just saying.

    She's the right candidate for the time and place. She's gonna roll anybody standing in her way.

    It's not out of place to say that Warren winning the Senate seat could make her a very viable presidential candidate in the future.

    She'd be the dream traditional Dem nominee, not sure how viable that would make her in today's reddish country.

    I don't think it sends that message. This is Massachusetts we're talking about, not Texas.

    Exactly. People keep forgetting that this is a state that elected Mitt Romney and Bill Weld as governors.

    She very politely said that pissed-off stooges do the dirty work for the rich guys who pull their strings.

    All true, and done in such a way that nobody can call her comment elitist -- although yes it *is* elitist, as she's saying this guy is too dumb to realize what he's really saying and who's feeding him. Which he is, yes.

    Karl Rove is quite simply evil. If he lived in the Middle East, he'd be working for Assad.

    If he lived in the Middle East he'd be dressed like Michael Jackson, have a massive nuclear stockpile and never be seen without an Uzi and a necklace of his former enemies tongues.

    EDIT:
    Actually, that was meant for Cheney. Evil white guys...they all look alike, etc.

    Rove and Cheney are like an old and wrinkly Tomax and Xamot.

    Brown says daughter, 23, insured under health law

    Senator Scott Brown, who won office vowing to be the 41st vote to block President Obama’s health care law and who has since voted three times to repeal it, acknowledged Monday that he takes advantage of it to keep his elder daughter on his congressional health insurance plan.
    “Of course I do,’’ the Massachusetts Republican told the Globe.
    Brown is insuring his daughter Ayla, a professional singer who is 23 years old, under a widely popular provision of the law requiring that family plans cover children up to age 26.

    Brown said the extended use of his congressional coverage is not inconsistent with his criticism of the federal law, enacted over his objection after he won a special election in 2010, because the same coverage could be required by individual states.

    Does anybody know what tribe Elizabeth Warren belongs to?

    I actually think she is an honest person but her response to this issue has been nothing more than comedy.
