“I advise everyone to pay very close attention to [Republican Senate candidate] Dan Winslow’s platform. He has a 100 percent ranking from the gun lobby and he’s for the legalization of marijuana. He wants us armed and stoned,” – Elizabeth Warren. Update from a reader:
Elizabeth made her remarks at the annual St. Patrick’s Day Breakfast, which is Boston’s version of the White House Correspondents’ Dinner. It’s filled with politicians launching zingers at each other. “St. Patrick drove snakes out of Ireland … to Wall Street.” Nominating Dish awards out of these speeches would just be too easy, and not exactly fair. Context matters.
