This November, Massachusetts voters have an historic opportunity to elect Prof. Elizabeth Warren to the Senate seat once held for a generation by Ted Kennedy. If elected, she’ll be the strongest, loudest, most liberal voice for reform of Wall Street and the banks in the Senate and easily one of the very smartest, highest IQ people in the entire US Congress.
In the final moments of her debate with “Senator Centerfold,” Republican Scott Brown, she blew him the fuck off the stage:I have no doubt Sen Brown is a good husband and a good father to his daughters, but this is an issue that affects ALL of our daughters and our granddaughters. And what matters here is how Sen. Brown votes.Let’s assume that both Obama and Mitt Romney will see the following clip in due course, if they both haven’t seen it already! This is how it’s done.
So he’s gone to Washington and he’s had some good votes. But he’s had exactly one chance to vote for equal pay for equal work, and he voted no. He had exactly one chance to vote for insurance coverage for birth control and other preventive services for women. He voted no. And he had exactly one chance to vote for a pro-choice woman—from Massachusetts—to the United States Supreme Court, and he voted no.
Those are BAD votes for women.
The women of Massachusetts need a Senator they can count on not SOME of the time, but ALL of the time. I want to go to Washington to BE THERE for ALL of our daughters and ALL of our granddaughters.
This one really matters. There is a LOT at stake here…
... And I want to be blunt. We should not be fighting about equal pay for equal work and access to birth control in 2012. These issues were resolved years ago until the Republicans brought them back.
