Mr_Fabulous: JolobinSmokin: As someone from Oklahoma who always checks the Native American box on any form even tho I do not have absolute proof other than being from Oklahoma and having 80% of my relatives that do have actual proof of their native heritage and being told my whole life that the only reason I don't have proof is because of a fire at the Cherokee courthouse, calling what Elizabeth warren did a lie is really stupid, ignorant of native Americans and Oklahoma and really just American history in general.Yeah, this faux poutrage from the right over her understanding of her own family history is completely bizarre to me. My own story is exactly the same as hers... it's been my understanding from the age of 6 onwards that I'm 1/32 Cherokee because my great-great-great-grandfather married an Injun bride. Do I have proof of that? No. Do I need to prove that? No. Do I even give a shiat? Nope.Why some stranger would choose to care about something like that is just farking strange. Like, mentally-ill strange.
Muta: Had the GOP simply approved her appointment then Warren would have been the head of an underfunded department and easily characterized as a paper pushing bureaucrat.
Weaver95: I love watching Republicans twitch whenever she speaks.
somedude210: I love having her as my senator
lordaction: Isn't this the lady that thinks if a road connects to your property the government automatically owns your house?
x23: machoprogrammer: As much as I like Warren, it was really retarded for Harvard to call her Native American when she was 1/32 Native... I am about 1/32 Irish, yet I don't call myself Irish. Hell, I am 1/8 French and don't even consider myself that.you should let the Cherokee Nation know that then... seeing as their current chief is only 1/32nd Cherokee.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bill_John_Bakeri suppose you know better than they do as to what is appropriate. i'm sure they'll appreciate your input.
ManRay: I just can't believe she is not smart enough to know where the money went.
Magorn: Her point was it SHOULD be that high if the economy was fairly distributing its gains
Johnny_Whistle: His campaign was very careful not to outright accuse her of lying, though. They said things like "She's facing questions about whether she lied about her heritage," etc. They let their subordinates like the Herald and talk radio do the hard sell on that.
Bloody William: Can any conservatives embracing this whole "ha ha she said she's native american" thing explain... what happened, why it matters or means anything? Because as far as I can see, millions of right-wingers have been masturbating non-stop to outrage over... her allegedly filling out a form and then not actually getting anything from it.
keylock71: Too bad for him, over 60% of Massachusetts voters didn't care about this... In fact, the majority of the "outrage" came from groups outside Massachusetts, The Boston Herald (Conservative leaning tabloid) and the piddling few Republicans still in Massachusetts.
Weaver95: Muta: Had the GOP simply approved her appointment then Warren would have been the head of an underfunded department and easily characterized as a paper pushing bureaucrat.yup. And what's more, the GOP elites who tanked her appointment know they f*cked up. not that they're ever going to admit to it in public mind you...but they know it, we know it and they know that we know they know it.it's gotta be driving the GOP insiders absolutely bonkers seeing Warren abusing bankers. sure, they scream about 'petty politics' and hate hate HATE that she uses her position to 'trap' bankers with 'trick' questions....but there's not a damn thing they can do about it.
