You all remember this from Monday night's Massachusetts Senate debate, right?

The Elizabeth Warren campaign wants to make sure that Massachusetts voters don't forget it. They're releasing this radio ad to remind them.
Announcer:  In the Senate debate, Scott Brown was asked:

Moderator David Gregory:  Who’s your model Supreme Court Justice?

Announcer:  Here’s Scott Brown:

Scott Brown:  Let me see here. That’s a great question. I think Justice Scalia is a very good judge.

Announcer:  Justice Scalia is “adamantly opposed” to Roe v. Wade.  He said it was quote “utterly idiotic” and he ruled against equal pay for women and said the Constitution doesn’t protect women from discrimination.

Brown:  I think Justice Scalia is a very good judge.

Announcer:  When Scott Brown had the chance to vote for a pro-choice Supreme Court Justice, he voted ‘no’, opposing President Obama’s nominee.  There are now four Supreme Court Justices over age 70; the next one could overturn Roe v Wade.  If Scott Brown wins, and Republicans take over the Senate, what kind of Supreme Court Justice would a Republican Senate confirm?

Brown:  I think Justice Scalia is a very good judge.

Elizabeth Warren:  I’m Elizabeth Warren, candidate for Senate, and I approve this message.

Goal Thermometer

Here's another thing to remember about Scott Brown. While he pretends to be pro-choice, he's got the endorsement of anti-choice groups and activists because "His heart is prolife." His heart and his addled brain, apparently, since Scalia was the first name that popped into his head when being asked a question he clearly wasn't prepared to answer with a lie.

Brown's no moderate, on choice, on women's health, on tax fairness, on the issues that matter most in this election.

Let's hope the Warren campaign follows up that radio ad with a television ad showing the very same Scott Brown.

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.
