Bad Week for Elizabeth Warren


Elizabeth Warren: First Cherokee Nursing Mother to Take the New Jersey Bar Exam

I don’t know who had a worse week, President Obama or his pal running for the US Senate in Massachusetts, Elizabeth Warren. I haven’t had time to cover the ongoing Warren Cherokee-nursing-mother-in-New-Jersey saga, but I’ve gotten a kick out of Prof. Jacobson’s coverage at Legal Insurrection. Here’s the latest.

There is something pathological in Elizabeth Warren’s refusal to acklowledge that she is not Native American.

When confronted with the fact that real Cherokees have traced her maternal lineage back to the great-great-great grandparent level and found no Native American ancestry, Warren ignores the facts and plays victim ….

This woman crusades against the banks over the housing market and foreclosures, even after she profited quite handsomely from flipping foreclosed homes. What a complete hypocrite.

But Senator Scott Brown’s favorability ratings remain higher than Warren’s, so that is a good sign.
