From 1985 to 1996, Elizabeth Warren listed herself in the Association of American Law Schools as a Native American minority. Which is disgraceful. As a lawyer, she isn't supposed to lie to the Association of American Law Schools. She's supposed to lie to judges and juries.
Elizabeth Warren lied and that's wrong, but before we judge her too harshly, who hasn't lied in a job resume? Does anyone honestly know how to actually use Microsoft Excel? If we lived in a logical and rational political landscape, the following exchange would've taken place after that revelation…
Elizabeth Warren: I'm sorry. It was just a stupid thing I did forever ago and I wouldn't repeat that mistake.
Scott Brown: Apology accepted. Now we can finally move on to talking about the real election issues. Like you being a socialist.
But because we live in a terrible world full of terrible people, this is what happened instead…
But the most stunning discovery about the life of O.C. Sarah Smith Crawford [Elizabeth Warren's great-great-great grandmother] is that her husband, Ms. Warren's great-great-great grandfather, was apparently a member of the Tennessee Militia who rounded up Cherokees from their family homes in the Southeastern United States and herded them into government-built stockades in what was then called Ross’s Landing (now Chattanooga), Tennessee — the point of origin for the horrific Trail of Tears, which began in January, 1837.
Conservative pundits dug into Elizabeth Warren's family history to uncover her ancestors were involved in the Trail of Tears. I never thought I'd say this, but can we please get back to talking about local Massachusetts' issues? What started out as kind of a non-issue has evolved into a full blown, steaming pile of Sitting Bull.
