“Elizabeth Warren lands party endorsement with record 95 percent support at Massachusetts Democratic Convention:”
To resounding cheers and applause, Democratic U.S. Senate hopeful Elizabeth Warren walked away from the state party’s convention in Springfield as the official Democratic candidate to take on Republican U.S. Sen. Scott Brownin November.
“We’ve been endorsing candidates this way for 30 years and we’ve never had a candidate get 86 percent of the delegates votes,” said party Chair John Walsh of the 15 percent threshold needed to appear on the party’s primary ballot.
With Warren shattering the record and preventing Marisa DeFranco from getting the 15 percent support she needed, the immigration attorney’s candidacy now effectively ends.

In-between creating “the intellectual foundation” for Occupy Wall Street, one imagines. No word yet if the cognitive dissonance caused by this disparity between rhetoric and record will increase the level of PTSD in OWS survivors.
