Just joking, she’s not making any play for sane voters. But she’s still attending a fatcat fundraiser with a virulent anti-American creep.
Republicans are demanding Democratic U.S. Senate hopeful Elizabeth Warren bounce Calypso king Harry Belafonte as co-host of her ritzy New York fundraiser tomorrow night, saying the crooner’s controversial comments are “anti-American.”
“Harry Belafonte’s anti-American views are extreme and repugnant. He has praised Castro and Chavez, blamed the United States for the terrorist attacks that took place on 9/11 and denounced America as a villain in world affairs,” said MassGOP Executive Director Nate Little.
Belafonte called former President George W. Bush “the greatest terrorist in the world,” while visiting Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez in 2006.
“Elizabeth Warren has to be careful about who she is singing with, because some of the songs from some of these characters don’t play well with the average Joe out there,” said John Feehery, a Washington, D.C.-based GOP strategist.
Not that your average Harvard elitist would have the self-awareness to grasp that simple fact.
Meanwhile, demonstrating he can bring people together, Senator Brown remarkably has been joined by a member of the Evil Empire.
Randy Levine, president of the New York Yankees, donated the maximum $2,500 to the Massachusetts Republican’s re-election campaign last month, according to newly released campaign finance records.
That’s right, the commander of the Evil Empire is helping to pay for all those Brown ads championing his support of the Red Sox.
