Matriarch of Mayhem

In the face of Elizabeth Warren's growing popularity in the race for Ted Kennedy's senate seat which is currently occupied by Senator Scott Brown, the Massachusetts Republican Party is turning to desperate measures in an attempt to smear Warren and regain the initiative.

The Massachusetts Republican Party has produced another web video targeting Elizabeth Warren, tying her in unseemly fashion to the Occupy Wall Street protests — and titling the video “Matriarch of Mayhem.”

This follows a previous state GOP video, in which they went after Warren for a past statement about financial reform in which she figuratively said she had “thrown rocks” in the debate. And like the “Throw Rocks” video, the new “Matriarch of Mayhem” video uses a lot of blur effects, to create that special scary atmosphere.

If I were in charge of the Warren campaign, I would take this supposedly-unfortunate notion that she was the inspiration for the Occupy Wall Street protests and run with it. Being tied to the movement in such a way is not a bad thing, and only the Republicans are deluded enough think so.

By the way, the "Democratic pollster" which the video quotes, Doug Schoen, is a Fox News contributor and the man who recently misrepresented the results of his own poll to paint the protesters as raging anarchists.

Matriarch of Mayhem is a great name for a metal band though. I trust some aspiring artists in the region are trademarking the name right now.
