Whiz Elizabeth Warren a little short on Street smarts

Have you noticed how, for someone whos supposed to be so smart, Elizabeth Warren surely makes a lot of stupid statements?
She teaches at Harvard Law School, so she must be very intelligent, right? Just like Barack Obama, the Harvard Law grad who thinks there are 57 states, that they speak Austrian in Austria, cant spell Syracuse and believes that Navy corpse-men are very brave.
Of course we all know why Barack Obama was admitted to Harvard Law School. What exactly is Elizabeth Warrens excuse?
Here was what she said in Western Massachusetts this week:
You know youre not as landlocked as some parts of the state.
Western Mass. is not landlocked. Who knew? No one bothered to correct her, because you can always tell a Harvard man (or woman), but you cant tell them much.
Uh, you have real opportunities. Youve got all the right natural resources but weve got to make sure weve got the right infrastructure, that the pieces are there so that somebody whos got a good idea for a business says Western Mass. is a good place to put it.
Is that supposed to be profound? Thats just moonbat filler, that reference to infrastructure. Im surprised she didnt mention investments, too. The lights are on, but nobodys home. More evidence: Her statement earlier in the week that she had provided the intellectual foundation for Occupy Wall Street.
What intellectual foundation? Riots, rapes, robberies, sexual assaults, naked vagrants armed with knives, ugly anti-Semitism, death threats to the Boston cops ...
I created much of the intellectual foundation for what they do, the $372,000-a-year mouthpiece told the Daily Beast. I support what they do.
You dont say. Of course, that was earlier in the week. By Thursday, in Newton, even Queen Elizabeth had come to the conclusion that perhaps she had put her foot in her mouth again.
What I meant to say was Ive been protesting Wall Street for a long time now. ... The Occupy Wall Street movement is organic.
Organic what exactly does that word mean, in this context? I do know that where the city fathers have taken away the hippies port-a-potties, as in Charlotte, theres an increasing amount of fragrant organic material on the ground. You dont want to step in a pile of it.
Then there was her earlier statement about how she was going for the hick vote. You can cut her a little slack on that one, since she is a carpetbagger from Oklahoma a hick herself. But do you think shed ever make a joke at the expense of any other community?
I can hardly wait for Lizs first Patriots [team stats] tailgating party. It may be the first time she actually meets anybody from Massachusetts.

Elizabeth Warren will surely corner the Obnoxious Patronizing Cambridge Liberal votes. Good God, just listening to that one sound clip Howie played this week had me swearing at the radio. She’s the female John Kerry—ignorant, arrogant and oh-so smug.
