In an interview with a local television station this morning, Elizabeth Warren responded to the new attack ads Karl Rove is running against her:
Democratic Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren Thursday had no problems being linked to the Occupy Wall Street movement and stands by her statement that she "created much of the intellectual foundation for what they do."

Some direct quotes from Warren in the interview, which will air in full on Sunday:

"Occupy Wall Street is an independent movement, organic, moving in its own direction. And that's how it should be. It's its own voice.

Goal Thermometer

What I'm doing is what I've been doing for a long time, and that is protesting the activities on Wall Street, trying to hold those guys accountable, and now trying to take that fight to the United States Senate"

Warren added that "I'm glad to see people push on this issue," that "we need a lot of voices" and "this is about the future of the middle class."

It is hard to make sense of Rove's attack on Warren. As lynne1 points out in a post on the recommended list, Occupy Wall Street almost certainly has high favorable rating in Massachusetts. At the same time, as Ari Berman notes, Karl Rove is probably not popular at all.  

Please, keep chipping in to Elizabeth Warren's campaign. Let's make sure that this is the worst $600,000 Karl Rove has ever spent.

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.
