Politico’s Dylan Byers writes about Scott Brown’s asinine position that he’ll only debate Elizabeth Warren if MSNBC drops out of the debate. Translation: I don’t want to debate her so I’m going to gin up some flimsy excuse which plays well to my base but makes me look like a doofus to everyone else.
Fascinating sign of the times: Sen. Scott Brown announced today that he will accept an invitation to debate Elizabeth Warren at the Edward M. Kennedy Institute in Boston, but only on two conditions — one of which is that MSNBC, which is scheduled to host the debate, must drop out as a sponsor.
In a letter to the Kennedy Institute, campaign manager Jim Barnett wrote that while it was OK with the moderator, NBC’s Tom Brokaw, it could not accept a network “with a reputation for political advocacy.”
So if FNC agreed to sponsor the debate Brown would be okay with that? You betcha. Like I said…doofus.
