  • Scott Brown calls for Todd Akin to drop out of Senate race

    Twitchy ^ | 08/20/2012 | Twitchy Staff
    As a husband and father of two young women, I found Todd Akin’s comments about women and rape outrageous, inappropriate and wrong. There is no place in our public discourse for this type of offensive thinking. Not only should he apologize, but I believe Rep. Akin’s statement was so far out of bounds that he should resign the nomination for US Senate in Missouri.

    Suddenly, I'm getting more enthusiastic about watching the Democratic convention.

    NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein
    In an unintentionally hilarious variation on the some-of-my-best-friends-are line employed by people defending themselves against accusations of prejudice, Elizabeth Warren—lefty Dem candidate for Senate from Massachusetts—has claimed that various people close to her have started small businesses. Warren let loose her laugh line on Al Sharpton's MSNBC show this evening, responding to an ad Sen. Scott Brown is running that reveals how President Obama's "you didn't build that" line was eerily similar to an earlier Warren utterance. View the video here.

    Elizabeth Warren for President? Democrats' Barren 2016 BenchBy Molly Ball, The Atlantic | National Journal – 5 hrs ago Regardless of whether the president wins re-election, the Obama era will be over before long.

But the exercise turned out to be revealing largely for how unprepared people were to answer the question. Nearly every answer I got began with a...

    Imagine if a Republican candidate claimed, confidently, that she was part Native American. Imagine if she had actually used that identity to have herself listed as a minority at Harvard, qualifying her for special treatment and celebration as proof of how diverse and progressive her department is. Imagine if, many years later, it turned out that her claims to Native heritage were dubious and, when pressed for proof, she offered her “high cheekbones.” Oh, and she once contributed a recipe to a Native American cookbook called “Pow Wow Chow” (that may even have been plagiarised).

    Elizabeth Warren fessed up last week and admitted telling Harvard Law School officials she was a Native American. Actually, it wasn’t quite a fess up – because she admitted only what she had to and didn’t apologize for taking weeks to answer the question. She also didn’t put the problem to rest. In fact, her announcement was provocative rather than reassuring because it was oddly cavalier, suggesting she sees the whole controversy as no big deal. And her words were so surgically prepared, they seemed more tactically designed to make the press go away than help voters assess the situation....

Is it too late for Democrats in Massachusetts to find a new candidate? The Boston Herald asked the question, and the answer is --- unlikely, although not entirely impossible: “The Democratic Party is really stuck,” countered University of New Hampshire political science professor Andrew Smith. “They essentially cleared the path for her as a candidate,...

    Bay State Democrats are standing by their woman, saying they’re confident in embattled Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren — now three weeks into a persistent scandal over her claims of Native American heritage — though critics say she’ll arrive at her party’s state convention next month battered by it. “This is a race that is a dead heat,” said state Democratic Party chairman John Walsh, citing a recent poll and insisting the flap has had no effect on Warren’s standing as the party’s front-runner. He said no one is talking about replacing her. “It’s not a sentiment that is out there...

    They ought to change the name of the next edition of “Pow Wow Chow” to Pow Wow Ciao, and Granny Warren can write a farewell address to any moonbats left who believe anything she says. We now have found lifted Recipe No. 3 — “Herbed Tomatoes” originally appeared in the September 1959 edition of Better Homes and Gardens. OK, this is not quite as delicious (in more ways than one) as cold crab omelet. Granny did make a few changes. Lieawatha’s “Herbed Tomatoes” was originally “Hot Herbed Tomatoes.” And she cut one of the 10 ingredients — one-half teaspoon monosodium...

    Amazing! Get in touch with your roots!, May 17, 2012 By Joshua P. Strodtbeck "fishstik45" (Indianapolis, IN) - See all my reviews (REAL NAME) This review is from: Pow Wow Chow: A Collection of Recipes from Families of the Five Civilized Tribes : Cherokee, Chickasaw, Choctaw, Creek and Seminole (Paperback) Some of the recipes in this book are by the nation's most famous Cherokee, Elizabeth Warren, who is 0/32 native on her mother's side. As a fellow 0/32 Cherokee, I have enjoyed getting in touch with my ancestry through some of the delightful recipes Dr. Warren has published, such as...

    It used to be a lot simpler. As E.C. Bentley, British journalist and man of letters, deftly summarized it in 1905: "Geography is about maps. But biography is about chaps." But that was then, and now biography is also about maps. For example, have you ever thought it would be way cooler to have been born in colonial Kenya? Whoa, that sounds like crazy Birther talk; don't go there! But Breitbart News did, and it turns out that the earliest recorded example of Birtherism is from the president's own literary agent, way back in 1991, in the official bio of...
  • Did Elizabeth Warren Plagiarize Her 'Pow Wow Chow' Recipes?

    The credibility of Massachusetts Democratic Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren took another hit today as Boston radio talk show host Howie Carr released evidence that appears to confirm Ms. Warren may have plagiarized at least three of the five recipes she submitted to the 1984 Pow Wow Chow cookbook edited by her cousin Candy Rowsey. Two of the possibly plagiarized recipes, said in the Pow Wow Chow cookbook to have been passed down through generations of Oklahoma Native American members of the Cherokee tribe, are described in a New York Times News Service story as originating at Le Pavilion, a fabulously...

    Thoughts from Polly's Granddaughter ^ | May 14, 2012 | Polly's Granddaughter
    There has been a lot in the news about Elizabeth Warren, the Harvard law professor who is running for US Senate. It seems she may have wrongly claimed to be Native American to help further her career. Of course, she claims she "checked the box" to get involved in social activities with "people who are like" she is. I would like to know what she meant by the statement "people who are like I am." If she means people like Ward Churchill, I guess I get it, but if she means people like me and other REAL Indians, I...
  • Audio: Cherokee genealogist says it’s time for Elizabeth Warren to come clean

    You see, Ms. Warren, some of us have independently done our own research and we know you have no documentation supporting your claim of Cherokee ancestry.* We wonder why you believe you have the right to claim Cherokee ancestry and to call yourself a Native American when you have no evidence to support your claim. While you cling to a family story and the inaccurate report that ONE document was found that supports your claim, we real Cherokees understand that those things mean nothing. You see, we Cherokees have lots and lots and lots of documentation supporting our claims of...

    Elizabeth Warren, who also goes by her Indian name, "Lies on Race Box," is in big heap-um trouble. The earnest, reform-minded liberal running for Senate against Scott Brown, R-Mass., lied about being part-Cherokee to get a job at Harvard. Harvard took full advantage of Warren's lie, bragging to The Harvard Crimson about her minority status during one of the near-constant student protests over insufficient "diversity" in the faculty. Warren also listed herself as an Indian in law school faculty directories and, just last month, said, "I am very proud of my Native American heritage." Except, oops, she has no more...
