Skip to comments.Fauxcahontas sending her Indian heritage down the memory hole?
Posted on 03/21/2014 7:10:55 AM PDT by SeekAndFind
Senator Elizabeth Warren, aka Fauxcahontas -- the woman who gained Ivy League tenure by claiming to be of Native American heritage on highly questionable (i.e., phony) grounds – apparently has decided that it is no longer advantageous to claim to be a Cherokee Indian. At least that is the conclusion to be drawn from the advance materials being distributed for her new book, A Fighting Chance.
Warren matters because she is the current darling of the American left, regarded as presidential timber, and standing by in case Hillary Clinton decides not to run for the Democratic nomination in 2016. Howie Carr is Warren’s nemesis, a gifted satirist who writes a column for the Boston Herald and regales listeners in New England with three hours of highly amusing talk radio daily.
In his Herald column today, Howie has an almost indecent amount of fun at Warren’s expense:
Whatever happened to Granny Warren’s Native American heritage?
She’s written a new memoir, due out next month, and in the advance press releases, I don’t notice the word “Indian” anywhere.
I thought surely the fake Indian’s book would have some old-fashioned Indian War-type title. It is, after all, a tome, or should I say, “tome-a-hawk.”
“Drums Along the Mystic.”
“The Last of the Faux-hicans.”
“Forked Tongue: The Elizabeth Warren Story.”
“A Tale of Two Teepees.”
“Dances with Moonbats.”
Instead she calls it, “A Fighting Chance,” a title that seems Eurocentric for the first female Indian in the U.S. Senate, or maybe she no longer is an Indian, because she never mentions her Cherokee heritage anymore. Doesn’t serve on the Senate Select Committee on Indian Affairs, for instance. On the Oklahoma Hall of Fame website, Granny even describes herself as an “Okie down to her toes.”

Not the first to revise her history with the passage of time.
Howie’s show is actually four hours (on many of his affiliate stations).
“If you like your medicine man you can keep him”
There should be a Nobel Prize For Political Humor and Howie should be the first to receive it.
Paleface Lizzy decided she didn’t want to be an Indian any more when she found out the DNA showed the Indians are from Germany.
She’ll be half black by the time she’s ready to run for President...
Pale face got red faced and had to execute an about face...
Warren, Clinton, Obamma. Proof that liberals approve of and reward lying to get what they want. Just like children.
my KB hates me....
I have always loved Howie for his ability to laugh at himself. Aside from that he is usually spot on in exposing Mass Politics.
