I guess Scott Brown was going for some of that 'he-man woman haters club" Todd Akin vote with this remark to his challenger Elizabeth Warren during their second debate this Monday evening -- Brown To Warren: ‘I’m Not A Student In Your Classroom’:
Republican Sen. Scott Brown and Democratic challenger Elizabeth Warren met Monday night for their second debate of the top-tier Massachusetts race — in a knock-down, drag-out fight filled with attacks and vitriol.
The bitter exchanges between the two reached a crescendo, as the audience of several thousand at the University of Massachusetts-Lowell booed and applauded.
During an exchange on unemployment benefits and President Obama’s jobs proposals, Warren attempted to interrupt Brown on a key point. Brown retaliated: “Excuse me, I’m not a student in your classroom. Please let me respond.”
Go read the rest of the TPM post for more of their recap of the debate. I'll just add one quick note on my own feelings after watching this debate and that is, David Gregory just took the cake for one of the worst moderators ever. Why in the hell Warren agreed to allow that hack to control the debate with almost no rules is beyond me. It was a really bad version of Meet the Press, with Gregory deciding to score points and gotcha' moments of his own. And he wasted a whole lot of time right in the beginning on the drummed up controversy by Brown over Warren's claimed Native American heritage.
Note to the presidential debate moderators. Please do not use David Gregory as an example for the upcoming debates over the next few weeks other than a lesson in exactly how you're not supposed to moderate a debate. Here's to hoping he's not chosen to moderate another one any time soon.
