During an interview with WCVB in Boston, Patrick was asked if he thought the ads are a good campaign strategy for Brown.

"Senator Brown has turned into a Bay State birther, for goodness' sake," Patrick said, referring to individuals who believe President Obama was born outside the United States. "And it doesn't have anything to do with solutions to help the people of Massachusetts."

The ads in question, launched by Brown's campaign last week, feature news clips on Warren listing herself as a minority while teaching at the University of Pennsylvania and Harvard University.

Brown also attacked Warren over the issue during the first debate between the two candidates.

Well done, Gov. Patrick!

5. Senator Brown isn't a serious enough person for office

 

His votes are based on his undoing Ed Kennedy's legacy and life long work. His claim to fame is a flash of sleaze in a magazine.
How this race can even be close is a mystery.
