MA US Senate Debate Warren v Brown


Senator Scott Brown made an odd request of Elizabeth Warren in the Massachusetts US Senate Debate:

“Professor Warren, you have to stop scaring women”

Seems Brown is the reaper trying to kill the messenger. On tons of women’s issues, Brown’s Republican party has shown themselves to be actually scaring women. Warren is just telling them: you’re right to be fearful of a Republican senator.

So by talking about Republican policies, Elizabeth Warren is “scaring women”. Not the actual policies. Discussion of them.

Funny thing about Scott Brown, Guardian of Massachusetts Women-folk Before this debate, Harry Reid basically called Scott Brown a scaredy-cat for trying to actually dodge the debate by kicking it with his caucus around the capital:

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid suggested Sen. Scott Brown (R-Mass.) was looking for an excuse to skip a Thursday night debate with Elizabeth Warren (D). Tussling over an amendment offered by Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), the Senate delayed a vote on a short-term spending bill that is expected to pass. Brown had suggested he might miss the debate if Democrats scheduled votes conflicting with its start time. “I’ve been to a few of these rodeos. It is obvious there is a big stall taking place. One of the senators who had a debate tonight doesn’t want to debate. Well, he can’t use the Senate as an excuse. There will be no more votes today,” Reid said.

Was Warren really scaring women or was she scaring Scott Brown who realized he had to debate Warren while fighting top of the ticket drag courtesy of former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney?
