Elizabeth Warren hits back against Karl Rove and company
Massachusetts Democratic Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren has a new ad called "Who I am," which responds to an attack ad put together by Karl Rove and his merry band of scumbags over at American Crossroads. If Rove's ad wasn't so silly, it might really piss me off.
Holy shit, the right is back to red-baiting in an even bigger way. What year is this again? And I think we know what Glenn Beck has been doing lately, writing copy for Karl Rove. I guess good help is impossible to find if you spend most of your time hanging out with conservatives.
Anyway, Warren has quickly responded to the attack with an ad of her own talking about exactly who she is and what she stands for. I think Rove is losing it, if he ever had it. What a bunch of dicks.
Good on Warren for getting this out quickly. As master Democratic political strategic James Carville likes to say, "let no charge or attack go unanswered for even a day." And its corollary: "Don't let your enemies define you."
Here's the new Warren ad, followed by the Rove thing, just so you know what we're up against.
