Round one to Scott Brown.
Granny Warren is described in one of her bios as a “legendary high school debater in Oklahoma.”
She’s not in high school anymore.
The kid from the poor side of town handled her with ease, landing one blow after another. You could see how thin-skinned she really is. She’s not used to having anybody talk back to her.
When he was pummeling her on the asbestos litigation, and her $225,000 payday, and on the $700,000 she and her husband make from Harvard, she seemed on the verge of losing it. But Scott didn’t go for the knockout — that never works in a debate for a guy. Just ask Rick Lazio.
My favorite line was when he said, “Can you imagine a Senate with 100 Professor Warrens?”
I can’t imagine 100 Professor Warrens anywhere, except in a nightmare.
