#BanBossy: Jeanne Shaheen Interrupts Scott Brown During His Closing Statement; Crowd Jeers: "Rude!"

It was a bad moment.

The American Thinker says Brown didn't only defeat Shaheen; he also defeated the Idiot Wolf Blitzer.

As the moderator of the New Hampshire Senate debate between Scott Brown and Jeanne Shaheen earlier this week, Blitzer came armed with a 'gotcha' quote by Brown in which he lists Romney’s prescient policy positions in 2012, and says we would not be worrying about Ebola right now had Romney won. The actual quote from an interview with Brian Kilmeade: "Gosh, can you imagine if Mitt was the president right now? He was right on Russia, he was right on Obamacare, he was right on the economy, and I guarantee you that we would not be worrying about Ebola right now, or worrying about a foreign policy screw ups…"

Blitzer, of course, was trying to spin this as though Brown believed that Romney’s victory would have miraculously wiped out Ebola. But one could more reasonably interpret the quote as to mean that we would be worrying less about Ebola, because perhaps Romney would have issued an immediate travel ban, being less PC than our president. Regardless, how exactly does this statement, a hypothetical conjecture, have any bearing on the policy positions of the two respective candidates?

Brown flippantly responded to Blitzer, "Thank you for repeating that quote for the fourth time," and again explained that it was taken out of context. Blitzer insisted it's not taken out of context. So the moderator was literally debating the Republican Senatorial candidate.

Brown was adjudged to have won the last debate as well.

Update: In the comments, Zombie suggests a possible #WarOnWomen narrative coming out of this, because, Zombie says archly, you can't say any woman has ever done anything wrong. This includes rudeness.

That didn't occur to me -- it's too absurd -- but now that I think about it, I imagine Zombie is right, and that this absurd claim will be making the rounds.

So I've added "#BanBossy" into the headline.
