Maddow has become for this generation what William F. Buckley Jr. was for a previous generation -- the embodiment of the American public intellectual. Of course, because her politics are the opposite of Buckley's politics, this fact drives the right wing up the wall.
I should have been stuck on his political positions, but instead I was stuck on his abs, which had no place on the campaign trail. At the time, I did not know why I felt so antagonistic toward a job Brown accepted when he was a twenty-something student struggling to make ends meet like everyone else.
Absent the baggage of Congressional Republicans, Scott Brown, with a personal approval rating of near 60 percent, could be a serious prospect for the Democrats to have to contend with.
What's most damning to Scott Brown's future prospects isn't the margin of his defeat. It's the campaign he ran and the issues he stood for.
The smart move for Brown, and the right move, would be to announce that he would not run for the open seat if Kerry is named to the Cabinet.
Lloyd Blankfein, I salute you for giving us such a great example of a wealthy powerful man who takes massive government largesse and who wants to slash benefits for the middle class and make them work longer before retirement; our side will be able to use that video well in this debate.

Perhaps the wrong question is being asked. Perhaps, it is less about the Occupy movement's impact on Election 2012 and more about how election 2012's affected the Occupy movement.
I have seen many Senators come and go and I have no doubt that if elected Elizabeth Warren would be the conscience of the Senate. Because she speaks for the best in you -- and me -- and Massachusetts -- and America.
I can't believe that the Scott Brown-Elizabeth Warren race is still uncomfortably close. How could anybody vote for the guy who basically asks the big banks, "What can Brown do for you?"

I have been reminded of the Moynihan-Buckley debate as I watch the brittle contest for the Senate in Massachusetts where Republican Scott Brown is trying to defend his seat from challenger Elizabeth Warren.
