Jim Treacher | Elizabeth Warren not too good at answering questions

A jittery U.S. senator-elect Elizabeth Warren gave one-sentence answers,  ducked questions and even passed one on to Gov. Deval Patrick in an awkward  first press conference since the election.

Warren spoke for a total of less than four minutes during the 11-minute press  conference — the rest was taken up by Patrick and reporters’ questions.

After being asked her first question — how she’d protect defense spending — Warren was silent as she turned to Patrick.

“Defense spending is you,” Patrick prodded Warren.

“Oh, that’s mine,” Warren replied.

States Senate, remember? Heap too much firewater on election night,  maybe?

Sounds like she’s almost as scatterbrained in front of a microphone as Nancy  Pelosi. So she has a bright future with the Democrats.
