On Sunday, in Lowell, Scott Brown held a
rally. (Actually, it was more like a really?) But that can happen when you use such flawed surrogates, like Kelly Ayotte:
“I absolutely support and believe in marriage as between a man and a woman, and I do think it’s unfortunate that our state has made a different decision on that. And I know that many of you who are out there working at the state level, running for state office, I commend your efforts to repeal that law here in the state of New Hampshire. And I think that’s very important.
On Sunday, Kelly Ayotte helped Scott Brown diss on Elizabeth Warren and Federal Student Loan programs:
“Don’t let her fool you on that one,” Ayotte said, as more than 100 supporters cheered.
Brown said bills like the student-loan proposal backed by Warren are “not jobs bills, they’re tax bills.”
Yikes! 100+? The Brown clique should have kept it at the SAC club, like the last two times.
Elizabeth Warren held, what I would call, a RALLY. This rally was out in Northampton, on Sunday afternoon.
And she goes like a pro. Right onto the front page of one of the most trafficked liberal blogs in the country, Daily Kos, in a post by Joan McCarter.
Heckava job, Rita!
This rationale for Scott Brown as a woman-friendly candidate is just nausea-inducing.At his event, Brown was bolstered by the former mayor of Lowell, Rita Mercier, who pointed to Brown’s wife and daughters as evidence of his support for women, calling them “three adorable good woman that are strong and vibrant and independent. You don’t get that way unless you have a strong man that allowed you to blossom.”
[bold is Joan’s.]
Local level city politicians rarely get in the news like this, so you know it’s pretty special. Usually it’s at least a state Rep doing or saying something stupid that goes viral.
I would like to point out that calling Brown’s wife and daughters “adorable” is also kinda weird and condescending.
