It is the issue that will not go away.
For two debates in a row in the hotly contested U.S. Senate fight between incumbent Sen. Scott Brown and challenger Elizabeth Warren, the lead-off question has dealt not with unemployment or the economy, but whether Warren is really a Native American or merely a Cherokee of convenience, i.e., a fake Indian.
And despite charges from Warren's cheerleaders in the media that Brown is behind the attacks on her alleged Native American background -- and whether she has used her "minority" background to get ahead in academia -- in both cases, the question was raised by debate moderators, not Brown, although Brown has enthusiastically gone after her on the subject.
In the first debate, for instance, the issue was raised by debate moderator Jon Keller of WBZ-TV Channel 4. In Tuesday's debate, it was the first question brought up by David Gregory of Meet the Press fame.
In both cases, Brown has enthusiastically hammered away at her on the matter, charging that Warren listed herself as a minority simply to get ahead at the expense of legitimate minorities. Along these lines, overzealous Brown supporters were caught mocking Warren in a video chanting Indian war whoops and making tomahawk chops. This would have made a perfect line of attack for Warren to go after Brown during the debate, but she failed to do so.

Yeah, if only she’d called in George Lakoff (rhymes with) right from the git-go, she could have headed this whole problem off at the pass.
Some 95% of all personal woe in this world is self-induced.
This is not just a fairy tail, it's a fraud to steal a spot from a true descendent from an authorized tribal ancestry.. The Federal Law that was established by a LIBERAL Congress was created to compensate for what a Liberal establishment reminded the Nation that we owed the Native American community regress for losing their lands and identity do to our aggression.. Hypocrisy, or Irony.. I report you decide..
The only Indian blood in warren’s past is on her grand father’s hands when he shot an unarmed “drunk” Indian in 1906. He was describes a “White man who was a good shot”.
