Elizabeth Warren talks to supporters.
Elizabeth Warren with supporters.
This rationale for Scott Brown as a woman-friendly candidate is just nausea-inducing.
At his event, Brown was bolstered by the former mayor of Lowell, Rita Mercier, who pointed to Brown’s wife and daughters as evidence of his support for women, calling them “three adorable good woman that are strong and vibrant and independent. You don’t get that way unless you have a strong man that allowed you to blossom.
The only evidence Brown and his surrogates have ever been able to provide that Brown is pro-woman is his "house full of women." But Elizabeth Warren, as usual, lays out that lie:
Meanwhile, Warren held her own rally in Northampton, packing a gymnasium in the Smith Vocational and Agricultural High School, where she said she would overturn the Defense of Marriage Act and targeted Brown’s record on women’s rights.

“Scott Brown had one chance to vote for equal pay for equal work,’’ Warren told the crowd. “He had one chance to vote for insurance coverage for birth control and he had one chance to vote for a prochoice woman to the United States Supreme Court. He voted no, he voted no, and he voted no. Let me make this clear: I want to go to Washington to stand up for women.”
Elizabeth Warren didn't need any man to "allow" her to blossom. None of us do. And we need a strong woman in the Senate who will really work for us.

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.
