By: Monday January 23, 2012 2:21 pm

Antonin Scalia thinks that everyone should be blamed but him for the hash that the Citizens United decision, among other things, has made of the campaign finance system.

MA-Sen: Warren Raises Nearly Twice as Much as Brown at End of 2011

By: Wednesday January 11, 2012 1:49 pm

The assumption for the Massachusetts Senate race is that the Big Money Boyz will lard up Scott Brown with oodles of cash, allowing him to run a scorched earth campaign that decimates Elizabeth Warren. In this context, then, it’s worth knowing that Warren has consistently raised a lot more money than Brown, most of it [...]

By: Thursday December 8, 2011 6:14 am

I’m not sure I should be paying this much attention to polls with almost a year to go until the election, but given that the Elizabeth Warren-Scott Brown race incorporates all the themes of contemporary politics in the 21st century, particularly the 1% vs. the 99%, it’s worth pointing out that this message is resonating [...]

MA-Sen: Warren Takes Lead Over Brown in New Poll

Just as a postscript to the Martha Coakley lawsuit (which I’ll have more on in a bit), it was supposed to be her failure to beat Scott Brown that ruined the Democratic Party for generations.

By: Tuesday October 25, 2011 11:46 am

Republicans think they see an opportunity to tarnish Elizabeth Warren by painting her as on the side of a movement designed to show the support of 99% of all Americans. Good luck with that!

Scott Brown Plagiarized 2002 Elizabeth Dole Speech

By: Thursday October 13, 2011 7:40 am

Scott Brown, the Massachusetts Senator facing a serious challenge next year from Elizabeth Warren, drew inspiration from an unlikely source for his official website: Elizabeth Dole.

Elizabeth Warren v. the Right Wing Smear Machine

By: Friday September 23, 2011 12:55 pm
