The Massachusetts Republican Party has a scary new Web video out against Elizabeth Warren, the former White House financial reform adviser who is running to challenge incumbent Republican Sen. Scott Brown.
The video plays snippets of Warren using some colorful, figurative language during a TV interview — with added sound effects and video blurring, with the picture zooming in further and further on Warren’s mouth as she speaks: “I have really done three things in my life, I have taught school…I’ve done research…And I have thrown rocks at people that I think are in the wrong.”
The video then cuts to the viral Web video of Warren from this past September, in which she declared, “There is nobody in this country who got rich on his own — nobody.”
Again, the Massachusetts GOP does add plenty of video shaking, blurring, and rapid cuts — plus some ominous drum music.
Finally, the video cuts back to the “I have thrown rocks” line — adding in the sound effect of a windshield being broken, as if to paint a literal picture.
To be exact, a Nexis search shows that the quote came from an interview on MSNBC with Rachel Maddow, this past July:
MADDOW: When you talk about taking it straight to the Republicans, do you want to be part of that fight in the future?
WARREN: You know, I’m going to be part of that fight one way or another, Rachel. Let me just be clear about this.
I have really done three things in my life, I have taught school, because that’s what I do. I’ve done research around what happens to middle class families and tried to understand that. And I have thrown rocks at people that I think are in the wrong. I’ve done it before, I’ve continued to do it, and I’m going to do it in the future.
Coming up next: A Massachusetts GOP video that doesn’t even need actual video of Warren, but will instead do the job entirely with sound effects, blurring and shaking filters.
