I love that someone amazing at Mother Jones took the time to respond to my dumb aquestion.

(No. 11, it goes without saying, is Mama Jones.)
Elizabeth Warren: Are you asking me if after a year and a half here, I am more attracted to coming to Washington?David Corn: That’s one way of putting it.Warren: That’s one way of putting it. Yes, that, or I can stab myself in the eye.Corn: Is that a no?Warren: It’s my view about Washington.That was Elizabeth Warren speaking with MoJo's David Corn in 2010. Someone please keep the Massachusetts Senator-elect away from sharp objects tonight.

— Sen. Scott Brown (R-Mass.), leading with what he apparently thinks is his most compelling argument against opponent Elizabeth Warren in a TV debate Thursday night.
Massachusetts Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren is in trouble for indicating that she is part Native American (she is). The response has been…predictable.
Occupy vs. Wall Street: Elizabeth Warren raised $5.7 million in three months. But can she beat Scott Brown? We hit the trail with the Harvard law professor/new progressive icon to find out.

We’re not in the business of making endorsements, but we’d totally vote for this parody Elizabeth Warren impersonator. Two and a half minutes very well-spent!
Remember this Elizabeth Warren volunteer meeting photo we Tumbld on Thursday? Well, Tim Murphy has more on all that. Read it: Elizabeth Warren’s Volunteer Army.
Check out this crazy photo of a high-turnout Elizabeth Warren volunteer meeting in Framingham, Mass.
As MoJo's Nick Baumann puts it: “Brown’s comment might seem hilarious to your average bro, but elections aren’t won by bros alone.” And thank goodness for that.
Our favorite (only?) Elizabeth Warren .gif is back! That’s because the badass Harvard professor and former Obama adviser, who proposed a Consumer Financial Protection Bureau before anyone else even thought we needed one, just launched an exploratory committee to challenge Sen. Scott Brown (R-Mass.) in 2012.
Brown’s strategy so far has been to label Warren an out-of-touch Harvard elite from Oklahoma. We’re pretty sure that’s the first time anyone has ever used that stereotype.
Which one do you want first?
Bad News: Harvard Professor/All-around badass Elizabeth Warren will not be the head of the new Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, because Republicans are terrified she would use the position to protect consumers.
Good News: Warren’s replacement, former Ohio AG Richard Cordray, is a more than capable replacement—and this frees up Warren to run for Senate next year against Massachusetts incumbent Scott Brown.
What happens when a not-very-well-respected GOP Rep. accuses a very-well-respected Harvard professor and Obama appointee of lying? This. This is what happens.
