Opening Arguments

An early gift

Elizabeth Warren, who gave a "You didn't build that" speech even before President Obama did, now thinks the United States should be more like China:

Massachusetts residents who tuned in to the Olympics opening ceremony saw a new 30-second campaign commercial from the Democratic candidate for U.S. Senate, Elizabeth Warren, that said America should be more like Communist China.

“We've got bridges and roads in need of repair and thousands of people in need of work. Why aren’t we rebuilding America?” asks Warren, a professor at Harvard Law School who served in the Obama administration. “Our competitors are putting people to work, building a future. China invests 9% of its GDP in infrastructure. America? We’re at just 2.4%. We can do better.”

The ad juxtaposes robust Chinese cranes and dump trucks with decaying American bridges and idle but sympathetic-looking American workers wearing hard-hats.

And this just in, boys and girls:

Massachusetts Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren announced late Monday that she is slated to open for former President Bill Clinton at this summer's Democratic National Convention.

"It will be an honor to share the convention stage with President Clinton on Wednesday, and to talk about what is happening to America's families," Warren said in a statement released by the Democratic National Convention Committee.

I swear, sometimes life is just so good to us.
