Stick to your guns, Scott
By Howie Carr | Sunday, September 30, 2012 | | Columnists

Don’t let up on the fake Indian, Scott.

Is she going to stop mentioning that you’re a Republican? Of course not. So why would you choose to unilaterally disarm?

They want you to be “gentler”? Ask your friend John McCain how gentle worked out for him.

Since she began checking the box, Granny Warren’s life is a testament to the truth of Sir Walter Scott’s immortal line: “Oh what a tangled web we weave when first we practice to deceive.”

She’s always backpedaling, covering up her tracks, trying to explain away some hole in last week’s explanation that has since been rendered inoperative by a new inconvenient truth.

You needn’t keep banging away on her fake-Indian problem. She keeps digging that hole deeper and deeper herself. This week’s TV spot about her parents’ so-called elopement — she’s throwing her own paternal grandparents under the bus as racists. Isn’t family lore great?

One thing I would bring up again is the $750,000 paycheck she and her husband collect from Harvard Law. That really hit home in Jon Keller’s debate. Everybody has high tuition bills to pay. People were talking about that revelation for days afterwards.

The no-interest $50,000 loan from Harvard also is worth revisiting. This is a woman who has led an incredibly privileged life, post-checking the box. For example, she and her daughter — the second-generation moonbat who got the state to send out voter-registration forms to all welfare recipients, including illegal aliens — wrote a book in 2005 entitled “All Your Worth: The Ultimate Lifetime Money Plan.”

Check out the Amazon reviews. Certain words recur: “simplistic” and “fairytale.” As one reader put it: “I doubt the authors have any real experience in the real world.”

I was surprised in the first debate that she didn’t mention her baby, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. You should be ready for it, though, Scott. Just read the Wall Street Journal op-ed by a Texas congressman that ran Sept. 19.

A few highlights of the story: The CFPB budget is $447 million; about 60 percent of the 958 employees make over $100,000 a year; the director’s secretary gets $165,139; they print documents in 187 languages ... this is Granny’s greatest achievement, another out-of-control, do-nothing bureaucracy full of otherwise unemployable lawyers. And you can bet it’ll protect consumers just about as effectively as the SEC shielded investors from Bernie Madoff over the decades.

No need to ask her again to release her law school employment applications. She can’t, obviously, or her campaign is over. So hit her on yet another of her stonewalls — she won’t give up the list of millionaires and billionaires she’s been consulting for, even though she’s required to report them all to Harvard Law School.

As The Wall Street Journal said yesterday, voters need to know who else she’s been working for besides LTV Steel and Travelers Insurance so they “can decide for themselves if she’s really a handmaid to the plutocrats disguised as Robin Hood through November 6.”

One last thing: If she brings up Sen. Jim Inhofe again, tell her if she’s really worried about him she ought to think about running against him. In her home state of Oklahoma.

I know that in addition to using her Harvard address as a mailing address for her legal practice she also used her Cambridge home in connection with her legal work. Since she has now admitted she never held a law license in Ma. It would be interesting to see if she took federal and state deductions on her tax returns for the office.
