Liz Warren won’t beat drum ... After touting her heritage
Boston Herald ^ | January 8, 2013 | Hillary Chalbot

Despite repeated claims she is “proud” of her Cherokee heritage, newly minted U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren is keeping that pride under wraps and won’t be taking advantage of a chance to officially list herself as the Bay State’s first Native American U.S. senator.

Aides said Warren, who describes herself as part Cherokee and part Delaware Indian, won’t contact historians at the Senate Historical Office to tell them she’s Native American. The office lists minority senators in its official directory.

Warren’s aides refused further comment, but Betty Koed, an associate historian at the Senate Historical Office, said, “If her office wants to call and have her listed, we’d be happy to do so.”

Twila Barnes, a Cherokee who has been a consistent critic of Warren, said her decision is just more proof Warren’s claims are suspect. “I think she just wants this to go away because she knows she has no proof. I think it was something she did to get a job, and it was temporarily convenient,” Barnes said. “She’s saying she’s so proud, then why isn’t she declaring herself and getting involved in Native American issues?”

Next year we’ll be electing a fake Eskimo, a fake Gypsy and a fake Space Alien, so long as they all promise to start smacking a few banks around.

Flirtation is an art with Betty Co-ed,
Her station quite depends upon her charms,
She gets the men in rushes by well-cultivated blushes
And she's happy with a fellow on each arm!

Betty Co-ed has lips of red for Harvard,
Betty Co-ed has eyes of Yale's deep blue,
Betty Co-ed's a golden haired for Princeton,
Her dress I guess is black for old Purdue!

Betty Co-ed's a smile for Pennsylvania,
Her heart is Dartmouth's treasure, so 'tis said,
Betty Co-ed is loved by every college boy,
But I'm the one who's loved by Betty Co-ed!

She made a wreck of Carnegie Tech and all its engineers;
She did the same at old Notre Dame, her line is good for years;
Roguish eyes, telling lies, breathing sighs!

Betty Co-ed has lips of red for Cornell,
Betty Co-ed has eyes of Navy blue,
Betty Co-ed, the golden haired for Amherst,
Her dress I guess is white for Georgia, too!

Betty Co-ed's a smile for old Northwestern,
Her heart is Texas treasure, so 'tis said,
Betty Co-ed is loved by every college boy,
But I'm the one who's loved by Betty Co-ed!

Yet this utter fraud defeated a RINO of the sort the liberals say all Republicans should emulate. This says something about Massachusetts... and RINOs.

I think Obama was gaming the system just like Warren.

When he was trying to get into an Ivy league school and writing books it was OK to be born in Kenya.

The lying bytch does not have one drop of American Indian blood running through her views. She lies and of course democrats do not care and they elect her anyway. She does have a lot of mush running though her head.
