It was just too easy.  Not a fair fight.  Elizabeth Warren is not only smart and engaging, telegenic and nice, but she is one hell of a scrapper.  She just punched the silly smiles off of the entire Morning Joe crew that was set up to get her with gotcha questions.  I was literally pumping my fists and chanting Go Girl into the TV. This will be a must see when the video comes out.

Quick highlights down below.

It is an incredible thing to see when someone speaks truth to power.  It is even more incredible when our Pravda style opinion panels get exposed for what they are, oatmeal brained careerists.  Thank you  Elizabeth Warren.

Elizabeth Warren interview from Morning Joe

First up was Mark Halperin.  His gotcha question was regarding China and its military and its (blah blah blah) National Security implications.  EW took his question, reframed it, tossed it right back in his lap and watched as the oatmeal oozed from from his ears.  She rightfully answered the question in terms of our Economic Security and refused to budge from this position despite Halperin tossing his oatmeal all over his high chair.  Priceless.  But just an appetizer to what was to follow.

The conclusion, the grand finale of her Grucci like display was a follow up question from Willi Geist.  He wondering how she was going to be able to take on the special interests all by her poor, helpless little self.  What followed was what I have been waiting for from a Democratic Party Candidate for quite some time. EW started with a question to the effect of why should I give up?  She built on that to a crescendo of I will fight for you common sense positive. (one voice equals two equals 30 equals a movement)  My good gracious, it was good.

Video will be a MUST SEE.  (if it is allowed to be released)

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
