The race between Massachusetts republican Senator Scott Brown and democrat candidate Elizabeth Warren always seems to provide entertaining moments. And it did so again on Monday.
Elizabeth Warren demanded Monday that Senator Scott Brown release more of his tax returns. The only problem was that Brown, her Republican rival, had already allowed reporters to inspect six years of tax returns while Warren has refused to reveal more than four years of her filings.
Asked to reconcile that apparent conflict, Warren abruptly backed off her demand, sayingTuesday morning that six years of Brown’s filings was enough. She did not, however, offer to release any more of her IRS filings.
So, apparently now six years of tax returns is perfectly acceptable to Ms. Warren, unless, of course, you are Ms. Warren, in which case, you only have to release four years of returns.
Then, there was last week’s entertainment.
[S]he said that she regretted boasting to a reporter that she meets people employed in Wall Street jobs who tell her they support her candidacy because she ‘will save capitalism.’ In walking back the comments, she told reporters the statement was ‘over the top’ and ‘silly.’
Ms. Warren is exactly who we need in the Senate. Someone who firmly believes in do as I say, not as I do, and who also believes that it’s just fine to make over the top and silly statements from “people she meets”.
Now that I think about it, if elected, she will fit in just fine with Senator Harry Reid and his imaginary friends who tell him secret things as well.
