How to Write Democrat Autobiographies (or Naked Came the Kenyan Cherokee)
American Thinker ^ | May 20, 2012 | Clarice Feldman

Posted on 05/20/2012 11:31:13 AM PDT by jazusamo

Maybe it was just a dream, but I feel certain that I read an essay titled "How to Write Democrat Autobiographies (or Naked Came the Kenyan Cherokee*)," authored by Barack H. Obama and Elizabeth Warren.

I can't remember the name of the publication it was in, or even the entire text, but certain things stand out about it and are as clear as if the article were in my own hands right now.

The authors advised that to really advance in life, it helps to make your background as exotic as possible. Warren suggested checking the Native American box or other ethnic preference boxes on all school and employment applications and went so far as to suggest that the reader submit recipes to ethnic cookbooks to provide "evidence" of one's claim to priority based on ethnic identity.

For "Pow Wow Chow," which billed itself as an American Indian cookbook, heavy on recipes using Wonder Bread, baloney, Velveeta cheese spread, and mayonnaise, Warren offered up her Cherokee family'straditional crab omelet. All right, so those recipes were Pierre Franey's...but heck, maybe he was from some French Cherokee tribe.

Obama said he had tried sending in his family's mbaazi , dog, and millet recipe, but no one would take it, so he told his literary agent just to say he was born in Kenya, figuring no one would scramble to Africa to see if the claim were true.

Don't worry about being called out on your ancestral fable-making, they advised.

I thought the French were big on Apache dancing; although how the Apaches got those horizontal stripes and silly little hats was always beyond me ...

This is slightly tangential to the thread, but it is a serious question. When a pathological liar tells conflicting lies, how do you know which—if either—is true? Many people assume he was lying about Kenya and telling the truth about Hawaii. How do they know this??? HI is on record as giving out a COLB to at least one person who was born in Asia [according to Sheriff Joe, the number is far higher]. [No wonder Obama said HI was in Asia. He was comparing himself to Sun Yat-sen at the time.]

It's at least as likely Obama was telling the truth about Kenya as about HI. Or maybe he was lying both times. Maybe he was born in Canada, which didn't help him w his 'authorship' OR POTUS aspirations. [Not that he actually authored anything; Bill Ayers did that.] The point is, w a pathological liar You Just Don't Know. And anyone who claims to know is doing nothing more than revealing their utter and fundamental ignorance of pathological liars.

Yep...Pathological liars believe their own lies and expect everyone else to, anything they say has to be considered a lie.

Exactly. The very fact that a person w Obama’s proclivity to lie says a thing calls the veracity of that claim into question—especially when it's anything to do with his ‘carefully crafted image. The whole Hawaiian persona stuff is right at the top of that list. I for one used to believe he was born in HI, but that there was something embarrassing on his original ‘birth records’ - such as his name being ‘Barry Steve Dunham’. I no longer believe that. I believe he wasn't born in HI. Where he actually was born I don't know. But count me as a newly minted ‘wherever it was, it wasn't HI’ birther now.

I have no idea where BO was born, but evidence is pointing away from HI or any of the other 49 states.

In other words, even if birth in Missouri or Connecticut wasn’t glamorous enough for BO’s crafted image, he’s not claiming birth there for purposes of POTUS eligibility. “I was just kidding, folks!” No, not even there....

All naming conventions are arbitrary. What you call Kenya I call Hawaii. Problem solved. Can’t we all just get along?

Good point—and I agree. As corroberation, consider the individual at the law firm Obama used to ‘work’ at arguing against the NBC requirement—and doing it shortly before Obama declared. No, that type of ‘coincidence’ doesn't happen in real life. There are people out there who know the truth. Once it finally comes out, it may cause some of us to smack our foreheads and mutter, ‘why didn't I see that all along?’. Yes, I think it will be that obvious, after the fact. For now, I totally agree w you—it was outside the fifty (or 57, who's counting?) states.

One more thing. Just how common IS it for people born in HI to think they were born in Asia??? Ask any 1,000 people who were born in HI if they were born in Asia, and how many would say ‘yes’? Probably none. Only Obama. Add this to the long list of things he’s said and done that no American would say or do—but that a foreigner would very easily do—and what do you get?

A man who isn’t that bright, is extremely lazy, and is NOT an American.

If you are an Indian or a Kenyan, then you are a member of the oppressed neoproletariat which is like being in hog heaven for postmodernist libtards, because then,you are not an evil white person of European descent who are the oppressors.

"What is the Constitution's Worst Provision"? legal scholars have asked.

And when have they asked it?

2008 -- When BO was running for POTUS.

For the folks who do not get the allusion:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Naked_Came_the_Stranger

Naked Came the Stranger is a 1969 novel written as a literary hoax poking fun at contemporary American culture. Though credited to “Penelope Ashe”, it was in fact written by a group of twenty-four journalists led by Newsday columnist Mike McGrady.
