Tonight is the night of an important scheduled debate between hunky Senator Scott Brown of Massachusetts, and challenger Elizabeth "Consumer Protection Agency" Warren. Everyone, of course, is looking forward to hearing what both candidates have to say. There was only one hangup: Brown needed to be in D.C. tonight for several Senate votes. So sorry to disappoint, yadda-yadda.
To Brown's rescue comes Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid:
“We have no more votes today. No more votes today. It’s obvious to me what’s going on,” said Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, the top Democrat in the chamber. “I’ve been to a few of these rodeos. It is obvious there is a big stall taking place. One of the senators who had a debate tonight doesn’t want to debate. Well, he can’t use the Senate as an excuse. There will be no more votes today.”I think it was really nice of Reid to help Brown like this. I'm sure Brown was heartbroken to miss the opportunity, and that he is now absolutely thrilled the debate will proceed.
