Amazing how one answer in a debate may put the nail in Scott Brown's election coffin
Oops. Scott Brown may have handed Elizabeth Warren the election last night.
Senator Brown was asked to name his model Supreme Court Justice.
His answer-- Antonin Scalia.
That put a really big, though slightly suppressed smile on Elizabeth Warren's face.
Actually, it's worth watching this 15 second video to see how Warren first covers her ROFLMAO facial expression.
It's no wonder. Browns choice delivers worlds of information about what Brown really believes and stands for and it is NOT the independent, pro-choice guy he's worked so hard to sell himself as.
Scalia is anti-choice, anti-Roe-v-Wade, pro-Citizens United, pro-globalization and free trade, anti-gay marriage, pro-voucher... see more here.
Bottom line, it's between Scalia and Thomas as to who is the most partisan member of the Supreme Court.
If Brown was smart, or if he'd been wisely prepped, he'd have answered Justice O'Connor-- a moderate, a woman. But he didn't even use her or other former justices who were conservative moderates when he went to list other options. He disingenuously mentioned Sotomayor and then, finally, Kennedy. He was too late. The slip had shown.
In poker, when you clue your opponents to your hand, it's called a "tell."
Scott Brown just showed a major "tell," and it's going to be used-- is already being used-- to help independents and Democrats who were leaning towards an "independent" Brown, decide that he's not anything like what he professes to be.
Rob Kall has spent his adult life as an awakener and empowerer-- first in the field of biofeedback, inventing products, developing software and a music recording label, MuPsych, within the company he founded in 1978-- Futurehealth, and founding, organizing and running 3 conferences: Winter Brain, on Neurofeedback and consciousness, Optimal Functioning and Positive Psychology (a pioneer in the field of Positive Psychology, first presenting workshops on it in 1985) and Storycon Summit Meeting on the Art Science and Application of Story-- each the first of their kind. Then, when he found the process of raising people's consciousness and empowering them to take more control of their lives one person at a time was too slow, he founded Opednews.com-- which has been the top search result on Google for the terms liberal news and progressive opinion for several years. Rob began his Bottom-up Radio show, broadcast on WNJC 1360 AM to Metro Philly, also available on iTunes, covering the transition of our culture, business and world from predominantly Top-down (hierarchical, centralized, authoritarian, patriarchal, big) to bottom-up (egalitarian, local, interdependent, grassroots, archetypal feminine and small.) Recent long-term projects include a book, Bottom-up-- The Connection Revolution, debillionairizing the planet and the Psychopathy Defense and Optimization Project.
