    So, is it still the “Kennedy Seat”?

    So, is it still the “Kennedy Seat”?

    There’s an interesting brouhaha developing in the Brown-Warren race.

    Vicki Kennedy (widow of Ted) has teamed up with MSNBC and the Warren campaign to organize a debate in late September.

    Scott Brown accepted the invitation on the conditions that MSNBC not be a sponsor and that Vicki Kennedy withold endorsing in the race.

    Now Kennedy is saying she will not abide by that condition and may make an endorsement (gee, I wonder who she will endorse), via The Boston Herald:

    Victoria Kennedy is refusing to sit out the Scott Brown-Elizabeth Warren race and withhold her endorsement, thus rejecting a debate demand from the Republican senator’s campaign, officials tell the Herald today.

    Officials with the Edward M. Kennedy Institute sent a letter today saying Vicki Kennedy will not abide by Brown’s conditions.

    “This non-endorsement pledge is unprecedented and is not being required of any other persons or entities. To us, such a pledge seems inappropriate when a non-media sponsor issues a debate invitation,” officials with the non-profit institute wrote. “We can assure both campaigns that the debate will be fair — just as the one we co-hosted between Senator Brown and Attorney General Coakley in was fair.”

    On the surface, one would not think Brown would want to pick a fight with a Kennedy in Massachusetts.  On the other hand, his “this is not the Kennedy seat, this is the people’s seat” line worked quite well against Martha Coakley.

    Havard Professor teams up with the Kennedys against Brown.  That could be a winning narrative for Brown.

    L’attaque L’attaque Toujours L’Attaque. This is the time to kill off the Kennedies influence.

    The latest Kennedy victim recently hung herself . Her family tried to get her body away from those evil people but they paraded her corpse aloft amidst f**ng celebrities.

    That family is the ebola of NE America .

    So let me get this straight, this Vicki Kennedy idiot wants to host a debate where she and MSDNC will gang up on Scott Brown?
    PU-LEASE! how stupid does this woman think people are? THIS IS NOT THE KENNEDY SEAT!!!

    Just for that, I’m donating to Brown’s campaign!
    Bunch of damn elitists!

      “PU-LEASE! how stupid does this woman think people are?”

      As stupid as the GOP, which agreed to multiple GOP primary debates on MSNBC with overtly antagonistic hosts and panels.

        repub primary debates dont’ matter, the lunatics who watch and more importantly belive the crap from MSDNC won’t be voting agains their Messaih anways.

        However I know as an independent, I was able to see just how left MSDNC is compared to Fox, even CNN, and without that comparison I would not seen that exposing of a deep lefy bias. And so for the repub primary, MSDNC served a purpose, in general elections they are useless and essentially part of the dem nominee’s campaign.

    Participating in a debate sponsored by msnbc is like stepping on a pile of dog crap, only worse. The stench never goes away despite your efforts at scraping your shoe. Brown would do better by posing for Playgirl again.
