Fake-A- Hontus - The Massachusetts Senate Race Turns Absolutely Weird

One of the seats the Democrats are hoping to try and turn is that of Republican Scott Brown, who took Teddy Kennedy's seat in a shocking upset victory and is up for re-election this year.

To oppose him, the Democrats have chosen Elizabeth Warren, a Harvard Law professor and self-styled 'consumer advocate' whose views on issues like private property, free enterprise, business and governmental control of same could be said to be a lot closer to Josef Stalin's than say,Milton Friedman.

The campaign started with the expected 'Republican war on women' theme, but it didn't have much effect on Brown, who is not a conservative and who gets a lot of traction in the Bay State from female voters because of his great looking, chiseled umm..position on farm issues.

When that was a non-starter, the requisite class warfare drumming on her part had some effect, but not quite enough, so the next step for Mrs. Warren was to throw her minority creds into the mix as a Native American, which is what she used to get affirmative action bennies at the University of Houston and Rutgers, and how she's been listed for decades in in the Association of American Law Schools desk book, a directory of law professors.

Except when asked for proof from the media, she was reduced to claiming - wait for it - 'family lore'!

She finally managed to get someone to find a document from 1894 that might indicate that her great-great-great grandmother could have been a Cherokee. As Christopher Child of the New England Historic and Genealogy Society said after he found this document at such a fortuitous moment "more research is needed." I'll just bet it is.

If it turns out to be true, that would make Fake-A-Hontus all of 1/32nd Cherokee. On that criteria, Barak Obama is an Arab Muslim and I'm the lost heir to the Lithuanian throne. The funniest thing about the entire episode with Ms. " Princess Laughing Socialist" is the reason she claims she been lying about this for two decades. Not to get affirmative action status, and not to get an inside track for a professorship at Harvard as a diversity candidate, but to make friends:

“I listed myself in the directory in the hopes that it might mean that I would be invited to a luncheon, a group something that might happen with people who are like I am. Nothing like that ever happened, that was clearly not the use for it and so I stopped checking it off,” said Warren.

People like her? Note to myself..start a new social media site for people whom lie about their ethnic backgrounds to get favored treatment and lucrative positions. I simply must help this poor woman.

Jokes aside, I have to wonder if there's something in the water Democrat candidates drink in Massachusetts. This was such an obviously stupid move, what they call in baseball an unforced error. And looking at Elizabeth Warren and the antics of the last Democrat Senate Candidate, Martha Coakley, I can't help but think that they've owned Massachusetts for so long that they feel like they don't even need to put up a pretense anymore. I mean even ex-Rep. Patrick 'I ain't drunk ossifer, I'm jus' in a hurry to get to whatever they call it where I vote' Kennedy wouldn't have been this stupid. At least I don't think so.

On a separate note, President Obama is planning to do some ads for Elizabeth Warren. Wearing a Sioux headress and calling himself Chief Sitting Tax And Borrow.Or something.

UPDATE: Bill Jacobs over at Le·gal In·sur·rec·tion sagely points out that Warren's listing as a minority law professor doesn't mention a specific minority.

Warren listing herself that way would not be a means of meeting other Native Americans, because no one else would know she was claiming to be Native American just from the listing. (I wonder how Harvard knew if she never told them and it never came up?)
