    • Maryland has a very different stance on immigration
      I’ve tried to tell people immigration is dropping, and when I show them information, they say they don’t care about Mexicans; they only care about Muslims. Oy. As some Republican presidential hopefuls, namely Donald Trump, aim their efforts at promising to control what they say is a huge influx of immigrants, the number of illegal […]

    • How the Rational Irrationality of Capitalism Is Destroying the World
      Capitalism leads to actions only a self-destructive wastrel would want, but does so pure rationality. Think of rationality as being of two types: Means-ends and internal-coherent. Means-ends rationality says: “I want to get to Point A. How do I do that?” Or, “I want to grow a garden so I can eat food. What are […]

Does Scott Brown’s manliness feel threatened by a female teacher??

Sorry I missed the debate tonight.  However, here’s the carefully rehearsed ‘zinger’ Scott Brown used on Elizabeth Warren tonight:

In case you missed that exchange, here’s how the Boston Herald reported it:

Maybe the line of the night so far came when Warren tried to interrupt Brown as he attempted to make a point.

“Excuse me,” he said, “I’m not a student in your classroom.”

He keeps calling her Professor.  It’s not Professor Warren or Ms. Warren.  Just Professor.

So, does he feel he has to reassert his manliness when he debates her?  Put her in her place?  “That’s right, I’m not a boy you can push around, Teach!”  {{strut while sitting down}}

Why does he feel the need to do that?  Does Brown have a problem with women authority figures?  Is he appealing to the white male voters out there?  Any guesses?

Check out the look on Warren’s face.  It’s like, “I can’t believe I’m only slightly beating this guy”

Yeah, I can’t believe it either.  What are Massachusetts’ voters thinking??
