Elizabeth Warren (D CAND, MA-SEN) staffer attacks, threatens cameraman.

How does Senator Scott Brown keep managing this?  ‘This’ being defined as “An aide to Massachusetts Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren, a Democrat, appears to have knocked the video camera of a Republican tracker after an event this weekend in Martha’s Vineyard.”


(Via AoSHQ) For those without video: video tracker follows Elizabeth Warren around, waiting for her or one of her staffers to do something stupid. Elizabeth Warren staffer obliges by shoving the cameraman around twice without provocation, demonstrating a palpable ignorance of the concept of ‘public space,’ and ending what was a particularly sad tough-guy act with the quasi-threat “You’re messing with the wrong people.”

Mission accomplished!

Seriously, you’d think that people would have taken notes and adapted their behavior after what happened in 2010, if for no other reason than professional pride.  Then again, I do have to admit that Lizzie Warren doesn’t exactly attract the smart ones…

    When you are nice to the camera, the camera is nice to you.

    Do you know who I am?!?!

    The theory went: Martha Coakley was a bad candidate — making Scott Brown and easy-to-beat off-year aberration that time around. But. Coakley was a perfectly good candidate caught completely unready for retail campaigning when Brown’s campaign caught fire. The Democrats refuse to accept that the people of Massachusetts actually LIKE Scott Brown. Therefore, they get really frustrated that he continues to clean their clocks. Humorous.

  • Trent says:

    I don’t necessarily agree with that. Coakley was a bad candidate. She had the liberal sense of entitlement at a bad time to be a liberal, even in Massachusetts. Scott Brown brought folksy charm and a clean cut look, but Coakley never should have lost that race, considering she’s a very well liked AG. Now, Brown has proven to be an “independent voice” and he’s running on that. Most people are tired of the fighting and bickering and see that Warren would add to the problem. Consider her other issues, and she’s Coakley 2.0

  • Patrick Thomas says:

    No, Coakley claimed Clemens was a Yankee. Nuff Said.

  • Patrick Thomas says:

    Excuse me, Curt Schilling was a Yankee Fan.

  • NotSoBlueStater says:

    Right, but she was already on the ropes when she made her gaffes. She was completely unprepared to … well … campaign. She was up almost 30% at one point. Brown went from -30 to -9 while Coakley was essentially doing what a candidate up 30 is SUPPOSED to do — lay low. But we forget she was a decent DA and a bright woman. You only nominate mousy liberal #2 when you thought mousy liberal #1 blew it. After this year, they will finally get that Scott Brown won in 2010.

  • Trent says:

    Yes, she was completely unprepared to campaign, hence bad candidate. A good candidate would have been campaigning with a positive message, not running ads that basically said “Scott Brown hates women”. I’m not saying anything bad about Brown, he ran a good campaign and was a very good candidate, but had Coakley been even semi-competent, she would have won.

  • NotSoBlueStater says:

    Maybe you’re right, Trent, but I felt a lot of pro-Brown energy at the time. Perhaps it’s just one man’s perspective. It felt like the nation was rallying around Brown in an effort to stop Obamacare. There was an electricity in the air — like we were doing something very important. In order to put that on Coakley, you need to assume that energy would have been absent — or insufficient — with a different opponent. Perhaps so.
