Kimberley strassel column in the Wall Street Journal today. Biggest loser. Elizabeth warren. And it says that you know, they were, you know, the the verdict in the midterm elections was somewhat mixed. The evening did nonetheless provide one total complete unalloyed loser. Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren. Then it talks about how she went to bat for various candidates around the country. Like Richard cordray, former director of the consumer financial protection bureau. That's the one that she wrote the legislation to set up. He ran for Ohio governor he was crushed. Then she went to work for a she. She went to campaign for a one of her former law students, Katie porter who ran in a California house district. She was crushed. And then there was a a woman in Indiana. Named the Liz Watson, Liz Watson was endorsed by. Liz, warren. And she got smoked by the Republican congressmen trae Hollingsworth fifty nine to forty one. So these are just some of Elizabeth Warren endorsements. Meanwhile, MS Warren, chose in mid October to release a five minute video and piles of documentation aimed at proving she really is at least one one thousand twenty twenty-fourth native American the ridicule was war was ruthless matched only by the anger Democrats directed at her for distracting from the election. By far, the biggest repudiation of MS Warren, however was in her own liberal state. She endorsed a ballot initiative that would have mandated nurse to patient ratios and hospital that would be questioned one voters destroyed it seventy two thirty. You don't want people were asking me grace. We how should they vote on question one? And I said dearly want the government deciding nursing nursing levels. I should have just said Elizabeth Warren says vote. Yes on question. One you make your own decision. Right. Yeah. It lost seventy two thirty. She rallied for democratic gubernatorial candidate Jay Gonzalez who lost to Republican. Well, I'd say Republican in name only governor Charlie Baker by thirty four points. And while MS Warren dispatched her own Senate challenger on Tuesday. She underperformed the state's top Republicans some one point seven million voters went for MS Mr Baker one point six million for MS Warren, by the way, do you know who topped the ticket for the dams in in.

They're still Democrats are still fired up to beat Mr. Trump in twenty twenty and they showed a thirst for new names and personalities that might get them there. But democrat bench has over this past year become wider and deeper. Cory Booker, Kamala, Harris, Andrew Cuomo. Oh, this is a dreadful bench Eric Holder Kirsten gillibrand divall, Patrick Michael Bloomberg.

Eight four four five hundred forty two forty two six oh, three says she didn't get smoked. She got smoke signaled. She really would be an incredibly bad choice for them to go up against Donald Trump. She doesn't have we we saw when she was debating Geoff Diehl. She just doesn't she's not quick on her feet. She doesn't really have the the right? A I don't know. Very whiny way about her that. I don't think is a good. I saw one of her comments from twenty twelve and I don't mean Scott Brown at the at the party here and iheart last night. And we were we were laughing about how how badly she did. In those debates gets Geoff Diehl dreadful how use that a lot of women don't like her. And I know that's true. But I just can't imagine that men would vote for her per president. She gets her to me if I have to imagine that guys hear her talk and just cringe. It's like nails on a chalkboard. She always seems like she's yelling at you about something. Like, you did something wrong. Like, you should feel bad about something women. React the same way. I guess. Yeah. I don't know. But maybe we're just more patient for that kind of thing. I just baffles me as many guys go in and as they just seem so insincere or she put it another way. She seems such a phony doesn't she she? It really does. Phoney baloney. Eight four four or five hundred forty two forty two beaver state says we're closing in on the closing news hour for the week will be set free.

They win when the feds clear, you they they don't a press release. They just don't do anything. And that's that's what they're gonna do. That's what they're saying. They're going to do with groping for that if Gropius cleared there won't be a press release. They're just won't be any arrest or in Dighton or anything like that. So I think that's what's going to happen here. Well, the Boston Globe has reported that Charlie Baker is going out to Las Vegas for a blink one eighty two concert. No word whether AJ's with him so flyers beware. Well, what will you do? We know how many naps were delivered to the air aircraft. I mean that might be a good indication of whether Gropius with them or not, you know, what would be a good poll question. Would you rather sit in dog poop or be seated next to grow Baker unemployed depends on your your man or woman? I guess that's true. Either way nips will be involved you're going to get them as compensation for sitting in the dog poop, or he's going to be drinking them next to you, Paul. The UPS guy says Liz, Warren is the female, Al Gore. Oh, I think she's worse than I don't know. That's that's a tough one. That's that's a tough one you ever been to a massage parlor.

So I could definitely see the rationale, and and keeping gronk out you need this guy for the long haul. Not not just for week five, and you might even be able to get past the colts here without rob gronkowski. However, rob gronkowski has a lot of reasons wanna play. He's got all these incentives based on playtime in receptions and catches. And all that is every snap. You mrs. He he sees the dollar slipping away from him.
