Wealth of material

Some days you scrape for stuff, some days it pours down from the sky:
  • Three cheers to the 1st Circuit Court of Appeals  and to Attorney General Martha Coakley for taking the next important steps in reversing the official discrimination represented by the Defense of Marriage Act. One more small step in getting the government out of the bedroom and into the board room where it belongs.
  • It's truly amazing to watch Mitt Romney's minions speak out of both sides of their mouths simultaneously. Romney's troops were out in force Thursday to heckle and disrupt an Obama event taking aim at Mittens' record as governor. Yet on the other side the country they staged an anti-Obama event they shrouded in secrecy -- out of fear they would be silenced.You can't have it both ways.
In a letter to supporters, Warren wrote:
“What kid asks their grandparents for legal documentation to go along with their family stories?’’ Warren wrote. “But that’s not good enough for Scott Brown and the Republican Party. For several weeks now, they have orchestrated an attack against my family, my job qualifications, and my character."
And how did the chivalrous, nice guy Scotto respond?
"My mom and dad have told me a lot of things too, but they’re not always accurate.’’
Classy don't you think. Call her parents (and his own) liars. Warren clearly was not taking it:
"Don and Pauline Herring are not fair game and Scott Brown should apologize,’’ she said in a statement. Brown’s campaign called the accusation “an attempt to escape personal responsibility for spending five weeks misleading the press and public.’’
With that quip Scotto went from the nice man in the barn coat to the bully who doesn't know when to quit. A line of attack that was always a mean-spirited one descended into outright nastiness from someone who didn't have enough sense to declare victory and walk away,

If she didn't try to use the native thing to her advantage she could play the outraged victim, but she did. And don't you think she should have questioned it in her own mind when she checked off the box? Gee I don't look Indian I wonder if I really am? Maybe I'm adopted.

Mr. Brown could use some manners. Here's a great rebuttal to his "I own a truck" gimmick.
