I must say that I was looking forward to see Elizabeth Warren, Main Street champion, and Scott Brown (R-MA), Bankster butt buddy, to debate. Sadly that will not happen. Brown has refused to debate Warren and made some very questionable excuses for that refusal.
U.S. Sen. Scott Brown said he will not participate in a debate proposed by Vicki Kennedy, the widow of the late Sen. Edward Kennedy, after debate organizers called his demand that Kennedy refrain from endorsing a candidate “unprecedented” and “inappropriate.”
"We respect Vicki Kennedy's decision but we regret that we cannot accept a debate invitation from someone who plans to endorse Scott Brown's opponent,” said Brown campaign manager Jim Barnett. “The Kennedy Institute cannot hold itself out as a nonpartisan debate sponsor while the president of its board of trustees gets involved in the race on behalf of one of the candidates."
Vicki Kennedy had invited Brown, the Republican incumbent, and Democratic challenger Elizabeth Warren to participate in a debate sponsored by the University of Massachusetts Boston and the Edward M. Kennedy Institute for the United States Senate on Sept. 27. Warren accepted the invitation last week. Barnett said on Monday that Brown would accept the debate invitation, but only if Kennedy pledged to remain neutral and not endorse a candidate for the remainder of the Senate race. The seat was held by Kennedy’s husband, Democrat Edward Kennedy, from 1962 until his death from brain cancer in 2009…

Martha Coakley was right. It’s a shame that she was such a weak candidate for the seat, because MA Democrats took toe seat for granted.
Rachel Maddow explored Brown’s InsaniTEA.
The reason Brown is refusing to debate is obvious. Elizabeth Warren would kick his arse. Teddy Kennedy's Senate seat has become foully polluted. Support Elizabeth Warren.
