Boston Herald via University of Massachusetts, Lowell: NBC's David Gregory Preps for Fiery UMass/Herald Debate
By Joe Battenfeld
Boston Herald
TAMPA, Fla. - "Meet the Press" host David Gregory says he plans to hold U.S. Sen. Scott Brown and Elizabeth Warren's "feet to the fire" when he moderates a University of Massachusetts Lowell/Boston Herald debate between the two Senate contenders.

Gregory, in an interview yesterday from his NBC broadcast booth at the Republican National Convention, said the Oct. 1 debate is a chance for Massachusetts voters, especially younger voters, to get a true measure of the candidates.
After watching the opening of the first debate, in which Brown made a racist ass of himself by calling into question Warren's Native American heritage, I hope she clobbers him. I found that attack, along with the tomahawk chops by Brown's staffers and the subsequent ad pressing home the smear, personally offensive. My wife, my ex-girlfriend, and my ex-wife all have Native American ancestry. At least two of them would qualify as Native Americans under U.S. government policy, and one of them is enrolled as a Cherokee, just like Warren. I'm sure Brown wouldn't say she's Native American either, but she is. Screw him.*

Also, Warren has another opportunity to wipe the debate floor with Brown next week.
