Elizabeth Warren should debate an empty chair

what a message it would send.

1. Brown is to scared to debate

2. REpukes are nothing but empty seats anyway


Either way, she wins

1. agree--

but Scotty is bluffing. He will show. And if he doesn't puke on the carpet or say something racist, everyone will say he held his own or whatever. Different standards for Repugs. Warren will kill in the debate.

21. dumb idea and you're right that it wouldn't work.

Brown hasn't refused to debate Warren; in fact, there are several debates scheduled. He's just (stupidly) refused to participate in a debate sponsored by a group (the Kennedy Institute) on whose board Vicki Kennedy sits unless Kennedy pledges not to endorse Warren (which is a ridiculous demand for Brown to make). Its highly unlikely (actually absolutely certain) that the Kennedy Institute isn't going to sponsor a "debate" with just Warren in attendance, so the only way that Warren could hold a debate with an empty chair is for her to find another location to hold a debate to which she doesn't invite Brown. That would be a really bad idea.

So, you're right it won't work. And it never was a good idea.

3. Actually a great idea.

She should do something along the lines of Bernie Sanders' amazing, wonderful filibuster...lay out what is happening to America under these people and make her case in a devastating way.

5. And pose queries to him like...

"I would like to hear Senator Brown's opinion on whether Wall Street has an undue amount of influence upon our politics in general and on some politicians in particular. Of course, if for some reason he has no opinion on the matter, we can just move on to the next topic."

8. Brown's just an empty suit, anyway...

...so debating an empty chair seems pretty appropriate.

9. Yes, that is a great idea. It would emphasize and probably get coverage, the fact that Brown

chickened out.

12. Dammit, WHY doesn't somebody do this?

It's a FABULOUS idea.

Frickin' FABB-YOO-LUSS!!!

WHY aren't we doing it? Does no one want to play hardball? That's the only way you win. I'd love to see that pantywaist poseur who dares to squat in Ted Kennedy's seat sent packing in November!!!
