Cuz Warren speaks real good (boldface mine):
I have no doubt Sen Brown is a good husband and a good father to his daughters, but this is an issue that affects ALL of our daughters and our granddaughters. And what matters here is how Sen. Brown votes.
So he’s gone to Washington and he’s had some good votes. But he’s had exactly one chance to vote for equal pay for equal work, and he voted no. He had exactly one chance to vote for insurance coverage for birth control and other preventive services for women. He voted no. And he had exactly one chance to vote for a pro-choice woman — from Massachusetts — to the United States Supreme Court, and he voted no.
Those are BAD votes for women.
The women of Massachusetts need a Senator they can count on not SOME of the time, but ALL of the time. I want to go to Washington to BE THERE for ALL of our daughters and ALL of our granddaughters.
This one really matters. There is a LOT at stake here…
… And I want to be blunt. We should not be fighting about equal pay for equal work and access to birth control in 2012. These issues were resolved years ago until the Republicans brought them back.
That last sentence is key: the second worst thing about Republican policy initiatives is that we have to keep fighting the same damn battles over and over again, only to wind up right back where we started.
Not bad for an academic, although she is is a state that doesn’t view professor as a pejorative.
