TomM-- FANTASTIC SNARK-- bravo. This Fauxchahontas stuff is as good for you as the Travolta masseur stuff is for the NY Post. Keep it up!

Dave (in MA)

Yeah, I'm sure SNL is going to make fun of a Democrat. In the 4th year of the presidency of the guy who admits he's worse than Johnson, they're still making fun of Bush.

hrtshpdbox

I know it's a couple of weeks old, but I loved this article by Howie Carr in the Boston Herald.
http://bostonherald.com/news/columnists/view.bg?articleid=1061128614
(Signed in with Typepad, I no longer see where to put a LUN, sorry).

Meanwhile, RealClearPolitics today moves Wisconsin from leaning O to undecided, apparently on the strength of a poll by none other than Daily Kos (Obama 1 point lead).

Quoin

Great snark TM. Here's some more. Kaus is the maus, that squeaked.

Mickey Kaus asks:
Maybe I’m missing something, but if Obama’s pal Dr. Eric Whitaker did offer Rev. Wright $150,000 to stay silent for the duration of the campaign, as charged by Ed Klein, how exactly is that different from John Edwards’ pal Fred Baron giving Rielle Hunter money to stay out of the limelight for the duration of the campaign?


Shut the Eff up! He shut up? WTF?


Wright gave a huge speech before the NAACP. He did newspaper interviews..

Things Wright said in public after Obama tossed him under that famous bus:
Speaking before an audience that included Marion Barry, Cornel West, Malik Zulu Shabazz of the New Black Panther Party and Nation of Islam official Jamil Muhammad, Wright praised Louis Farrakhan, defended the view that Zionism is racism, accused the United States of terrorism, repeated his view that the government created the AIDS virus to cause the genocide of racial minorities, stood by other past remarks (”God damn America”) and held himself out as a spokesman for the black church in America. . . .

TexasIsHeaven

Lordy how I love this story. This is right up there with Sandy "Socks" Berger, Burger, Bungler or whatever the hell his name is.

Both of them having trouble getting the paperwork together - or should I say, getting the right paperwork together.

I'm going to be able to live off this for some time to come.

Clarice

As a kid I visited the Wisconsin Dells and heard them singing the Indian Love Call. Does that count?

Appallled

Hey, I have rooted for the Braves for over 20 years, and I feel a special kinship with them. Can I now check the native american box on the job application? Or do I just get to scowl at TM, the blogger, as the Yankees yet again try to buy a World Series, and the man casts aspersions on the team with most exciting offence in baseball?

Clarice

Oh, yah, and I cheered for the Braves and my brother hung out on Warren Spahn's lawn hoping to get a glimpse of his hero.

Clarice

And--there's more. I clambered around Chaco Canyon.

Now, don't tell me all this doesn't count.

Elmer Stoup

Unless her cousin is a double cousin, Ms. Warren does not have all the same ancestors as her cousin.

Donald

She did a half assed modified palm down thing as I recall.

I ran into her one night and said something Less Than Kind (title of a fantastic TV show on the direct TV movie network).

Donald

I was not profane and I didn't yell.

matt

and in other news, the Bishop of Washington is furious that Georgetown has invited Kathleen Sebelius as a commencement speaker.

It seems like the Left is descending into a puerile spiral this year.

With Obama saying it's hard to get elected with a name like Barack Hussein Obama in this election cycle, Lizzie Warren playing Indian Princess and doubling down in the face of the facts, and the blatant pandering to every leftist special interest they can find they seem to be going all out.

Clarice

I, too, find the Sebelius invitation inexplicable. Is every academic administrator insane?

jimmyk

OT, and not sure if this has been discussed, but I got this (no link) from the Center for Individual Freedom:

Obama's handpicked Health and Human Services Director Kathleen Sebilius announced this week that she will establish ObamaCare "Hubs" in public schools across the nation, using loosely written "healthcare" appropriations to pour hundreds of millions of your taxpayer dollars into socialized medicine.

This latest expenditure of $75 million will create full-fledged federally operated health care centers in your child's school. And, the medical information data gleaned from your child will be stored by the school and the Feds to make "data driven decisions" on your child's health and learning.

It's for the children, you know.

Clarice

That seems extreme, but when I was growing up in Milwaukee, public health nurses conducted free well baby clinics in schools on Saturdays, vaccinated kids, checked their weight and gave health info to moms. It was a practical and reasonably low cost way to do this, With this administration I'm sure it'll be another thing altogether.

NK

Clarice-- Georgetown U is wholly owned by the House of Saud. it is not Catholic, nor Jesuit, it is Dhimmitude.

Danube of Thought

My great grandfather's middle name was Powhatan. Where's my stuff?

Scott

Just by way of example, I am a very white, red-headed man who has some American Indian heritage. That is not shocking if you consider that my paternal grandparents were both born and raised in Oklahoma - a former Indian Reservation.

Supposedly, I am 1/64th Cherokee through my paternal grandfather, but I have never seen any documentation to support that claim. However, my paternal grandmother is the great-granddaughter of a full blooded Choctaw Indian woman who was married to a white man - which makes me 1/32nd Choctaw. That is documented, and having spoke to my own great-grandmother prior to her death in 1989, she confirmed to me personally that her grandmother was a Choctaw Indian.

That makes this lily-white man 3/64ths American Indian - a little less than 5%. The difference between me and Elizabeth Warren is that although I can document 2/64ths of my Indian heritage, I have never expressed to anyone that I am anything other than caucasian.

My own children have a grandmother who immigrated from Mexico in 1966, after she married my father-in-law. My wife went through college on Hispanic scholarships, and my own children (much like my great-grandmother) are 1/4 something-other-than-white - in their case Mexican. The problem is that my two oldest children look like a cross between me and my father-in-law - very pale, blue eyes, and both blonde.

My oldest is graduating college, and my older daughter is finishing her second year. Conceivably, both could legitimately claim "Hispanic" status. But neither have ever done so. They are so "white" in appearance, there own friends question their Hispanic heritage when the issue comes up.

My younger daughter looks more Hispanic, with brown eyes, brown hair, and olive skin like her mother. But even she has never claimed minority status. Why?

Well her mother is a Senior Vice-President of Accounting at a large investment bank, and I own my own commericial Air Conditioning business. They have been raised to be part of the majority, and not buy into the whole hyphenated-American schtick.

Since both my brother and my sister married black people, I have two nieces and a nephew who share Obama's racial background - 1/2 black and 1/2 white. All three of them are being raised to understand that they are just as white as they are black, and none of them display the pathologies of the victimization mentality.

Shockingly, in my youngest daughter's public school classroom, she and her classmates had a "racist joke day." In the class were East-Indians, Blacks, Whites, American Indians, Asians, and Hispanics. (We live in Dallas-Fort Worth.) They all had great fun making fun of each other, and by extension, making fun of the whole idea of differentiation according to racial heritage.

I am firmly convinced that this next generation just doesn't care as much about racial identity. Many of them, like my own children, and the children of my brother and sister, grew up in multiracial families. It's just not a big deal to them. If anything, they get annoyed by those who want to identify themselves racially instead of individually.

It remains to be seen whether these healthy attitudes will survive the University experience.

My youngest, who will be entering college in the fall, was coralled by a "women's studies" professor at a recent college open house, and was appalled as this 1960's era hippie woman tried to talk her into the whole feminist schtick. I faked a phone call, and handed her the phone to free her from this woman who literally grabbed her by the arm and held her in front of the "Women's studies" booth.

Once this current generation of Baby Boomers dies off, I seriously doubt that Americans will continue to obsess over race or sex. This next generation is just not that interested.

matt

yes, clarice, I do believe they are. I think perhaps the whole bunch of them are.

John Boehner said yesterday that he would not permit another increase in the debt ceiling unless he got spending cuts.

Jerry Brown here in California has proposed a budget that would get a CPA landed in jail and is stating there's "only" a $16 Billion shortfall with almost no serious state salary cuts and a 3% increase in schools spending.This in the state with the highest salaries and lowest test scores.

Holder is suing Arpaio for a program for which the Maricopa County Sheriff's Department received high marks from the federal government.

Both the Health Care Bill and the government's case against Arizona may be overturned and the legal arguments advanced by our federal government were found to be laughable.

I truly believe I now know where a large percentage of the illegal drugs entering the country are being consumed.As you are aware, drug use is often linked to the onslaught of mental illness.

RobC

The bad news is that Elizabeth Warren is 0/32 Cherokee. The good news is that she may well be the next CEO of Yahoo.

jimmyk

With this administration I'm sure it'll be another thing altogether.

Sure, because all that stuff you remember was decided on and funded locally, presumably with some familiarity with what was needed and what would work. Undoubtedly Obama has in mind using our tax money to create make-work for his SEIU pals.

Bill in AZ sez it's time for Obama/Holder murder trial in Mexico

They called me "Indian" when I worked construction in high school and college. Where's my stuff?!

Extraneus

From the article:

Shortly after the Herald first reported that Harvard Law School had touted Warren’s Native American background, a genealogist at the society indicated that a document existed purporting that Warren was 1/32nd Cherokee because of her great-great-great-grandmother. But the Society backpedaled yesterday, saying they haven’t been able to find primary documentation to back up that claim. Their comments came as the Herald reported yesterday that an Oklahoma county clerk said a marriage application proving Warren’s tribal roots does not exist.
Now that he's been exposed for fraud, he no longer has a name?

His name is Chris Child.

Ignatz

My family owns a ranch which has Indian grinding rocks on it and we used to dig up arrowheads, spear points and beads as a kid. My grandpa even unearthed an Indian skeleton while plowing one day.
I'm guessing that would qualify me to pay reparations not receive them, right?

Clarice

exactly, jimmy k. Everything they touch turns to pay offs.

Damn, I just can't spell militia...

Hey, who wants to bet that Warren doesn't part her hair in the middle to look like an Indian?

Danube of Thought

I don't see how anyone can dispute that California is now beyond salvaging, and that this mess was caused entirely by the Democratic party (with a boost from Arnold).

matt

I used to drive a Cherokee. My dad drove a Pontiac. I think my grandfather once said he had an Indian motorcycle, but it is a family legend. Does that help me qualify?

And it's hard to get elected when your name is Barack Obama, I'm told.

NK

I'm SOL-- I have no Indian heritage claim whatever. I can never be tenured HLS faculty or run for Senate in the Bay State. Sigh....

...the man casts aspersions on the team with most exciting offence in baseball

I have been an admirer of the Tampa Bay Rays for years now. It used to be like watching a track team that had no pitching. Of course, now they have pitchers so I have to hide behind the sofa in my special Manny/Ortiz spot when we play them.

Captain Hate

The clean toga crowd is in full retreat: http://minx.cc/?post=329322

Rob Crawford

Unless her cousin is a double cousin, Ms. Warren does not have all the same ancestors as her cousin.

Theirs is not so much a family tree as it is a family vine, apparently.

AliceH

I have no Indian heritage claim whatever.

You just need to get creative, NK. Now, typically, one claims heritage affiliations by looking back through the family tree, but that's old school. How about your children? Did any of them attend a summer camp with an Indian name? Join cub scouts? Did you watch Pocahontas with them?

Perhaps somewhere you've got a buffalo head nickel.

Dave (in MA)

I didn't notice him mentioning the Blue Jays.

Pedantically,

Hey, totally off topic, but I was driving through the Bronx today, and my usual classical station was in pledge drive mode, so I hit auto-search. The first four stations came up in Spanish, but the first station that was in English, was good old WBAI, a pacifica radio station, which was holding its own pledge drive for Democracy Now. Just as that tuned in, I passed a building north of the Bruckner, with graffiti lettering fifteen feet high ( and very professional-looking) that said "Free Mumia 2012." Just two reminders. The left, like rust, never sleeps. Wouldn't surprise me if the JEF pardons Mumia before the end of the calendar year.

Manny/Ortiz
You mean Manny Ortez?

AliceH-- well now that you mention it, my children were enrolled in the YMCA Indian Guide and Princesses program for several years, and at YMCA Camp Hi-Rock (in Mt Washinton Ma. no less) they used indian style blankets,...Hmm.... HLS here I come!!

jpedlin

Jennifer Rubin's fellatious conclusion;

"With more and more female candidates, the Democrats’ “war on women” meme becomes sillier and sillier."

Conservative policies on contraception, abortion, health insurance and medical procedures, notwithstanding,in general advocated by Republican women can’t possibly qualify as misogynist.

Same theory that Allen West’s presence as a GOP member of Congress means that Republicans can’t be racist.

LOL

jimmyk

You just need to get creative, NK.

Hmm, I supposedly come from a tribe. Can I omit that the tribe's name is Levi?

My great grandfather's middle name was Powhatan. Where's my stuff?

I can beat all of you. Whenever we asked my grandfather where we came from he said: "Horsethieves and Indians", AND I have the exact same coloring as Lizzie Warren.

So there.

I am related to the guy who works for the Cleveland baseball team. Cheif Knockahoma I believe. What do I win?

CH, That was a jerky post all right.

BTW once when Morton Halperin's phone was being tapped a friend was visiting and had to call him to re-schedule some event their sons were in ..it was a group where each troop used Indian names and spoke in some loony tunes fake Indian talk. i always wondered what the FBI monitors made of that call. Now I suppose it might be of use to me in claiming some special ethnic advantage.

Captain Hate

Wouldn't surprise me if the JEF pardons Mumia before the end of the calendar year.

I believe I've read that those are state charges and the jugeared fraud has no say in those.

Jim Ryan

I got up this morning and said to myself, "I wonder whether the opening of the Soviet archives has revealed that my cousin was indeed a Stalinist plant, not a genuine Trotskyite?" Ever wake up and ask yourself that? Anyway, a little surfing says the answer is "yes".

The old family story will have to be revised if this is so. Robert Sheldon Harte sure had Trotsky hoodwinked. The sonofabitch was obviously a slick operator and con man, in addition to a commie nutjob.

Captain Hate

Jennifer Rubin's fellatious conclusion

Nice.

Frau Indianerherz

In a talent (cough) show, my high school girlfriend and I, dressed as Princess Paleface, sang "Pass that Peace Pipe" which may have been easy for Gene Kelly and Fred Astaire to learn but no so for us.

"A medicine man I met
Said ,"Don't get yourself in a sweat;
when things look grey,
Just shrug and say,
"It must have been somethin' I ate!".

"So don't get yourself in a snit", he said,
"Tuck your pantaloons into your kit instead!
It's disarming
To be charming",
Qoth the medicine man,
Whom all agree,
It's plain to see,
Nobody could be wiser than!

So if your temper's gettin' the top hand,
All ya gotta do is just stop and
Pass that peace pipe and bury the hatchet,
Like the Choctaws, Chickasaws, Chattahoochees, Chippewas do!

If you're feelin' mad as a wet hen,
Mad as you can possibly get, then
Pass that peace pipe and bury that tomahawk,
Like this Chichamecks, Cherokees, Chapultepecs do!

Don't be cranky,
Try to use a little restraint!
Fold that hanky
And wipe off all that warpaint!

Clarice

Was he really your cousin? Maybe you'll qualify for something. Is there a box to check for that?

jpedlin's circular reasoning is obvious. Actually I think that was one of Jennifer rubin's best columns and I agree with it.

Frau Indianerherz

It goes "own and own and own" and so did we.
And if you find yourself in a fury,
Be your own judge and your own jury!
Pass that peace pipe and bury the hatchet,
Like the Choctaws, Chickasaws, Chattahoochees, Chickawas do!

If you wanna hover out west too,
You will soon discover it's best to
Pass that peace pipe and bury the hatchet,
Like the Chochohs, Changos, Chattanoogas, Chichewoos do do do!

Oh, even in colonial days
Knew ceremonial ways to
Pass that peace pipe and bury that tomahawk,
Like this Chakatoomees, Chepeacheps 'n' Chicopees do!

Pull your ears in,
Try to use a little control!
When "all clear!"'s in,
You'll be top man on the totem pole!

And if you wanna be an alright guy,
Not a long face "blues in the night" guy,
Write that apology and despatch it,
When you quarrel it's grand to patch it!
Pass that peace pipe and bury that hatchet,
Like this Choctaws, Chickasaws, Chattahoochees, Chippewas,
And those Chichamecks, Cherokees, Chapultepecs,
And those Chakamootees, Chepeacheps 'n' Chicopees,
Chockohs, Changos, Chatanoogas, Cheekarohs do!
Ugh!

Good morninf!

Megyn Kelly doing a segment on Elizabeth Warren.

Liz has just started an Election ad called "She's The Real Deal."

Megyn's guest to discuss the topic is Larry Sabato. Megyn has all the facts, "Woman of Color", "No documentation", "Liz listed herself as a Native American for a decade", etc

Is the media giving Liz a pass? asks Megyn.

The Herald has sez Sabato, but the Globe hasn't tho' that's a bit understandable due to political leanings blah, blah, blah.

Now Megyn puts up the quote from the genealogists "We Have No Proof of any kind about Lizzie's Native American Heritage..."

Megyn smartly attempts to compare this to fake Vietnam combat Vet Dick Blumenthal, then asks will this be a big deal among voters up there?

Sabato sez Liz shouldn't have done it but maintains that Liz still has a big advantage because she has Obama in her camp and Massachusetts is liberal, so she has plenty of money to run ads that may be persuasive.

Sabato actually said very little, but it was nice to see Megyn discuss the topic, run portions of Lizzy's "She's The Real Deal" ad, and lay the facts out.

Meh, enuff of Sabato, but great to se Megyn doing her homework.

BTW next segment up will be John Lovtiz, and Dennis Miller on his radio show yesterday joked with Lovitz that Megyn Kelly is hot for Lovitz and would leave her husband for him if he'll flirt with her:) That drew laughter, and Lovitz said he was really surprised at how much flack he took for his "Obama is a liar comments."

I'll let you know if Megyn levaes her hubby in a few minutes.

Clarice

Luckily, Frau, you didn't pick a Danny Kaye number.

Yeah...Extraneus said his grandma said he looked like Engelbert.

Right--I think the federal court ruled on a habeas corpus petition. But the prez has no power to pardon him.

I win: I attended the Coronado Arts Ball as a medicine man a couple of years ago.

shees..picking up on some of Tin Pan Alley's best (or worst) now. We're off on the Road to the Reservation!

David Letterman and Brian Williams combine their brain power; double digits now conceivably attainable.

I believe she was my first cousin, once removed. :-)

Oooh, that's right. Damn. I even saved that pic somewhere. I know hit can dig it up and post it.

He had no power to appoint Cordray, but the man got appointed anyway. A tiny little thing like the Constitution has never stopped Zero.

Rutherford B. Hayes, back by popular demand via Instapundit:

Capn' I believe the logic goes something like this. Republicans are RACISTS, because Libtards say so. Allen West doesn't count, because liberals say so.

OT - I went to a memorial service for Chuck Colson this morning up at the Nat'l Cathedral.
Very nice...

I used to smoke cigars, does that count?

"A tiny little thing like the Constitution has never stopped Zero."

IMO, the Obama Admin thinks the Constitution is a challenge that they are determined to defeat. There seem to be no penalties for them to violate anything. None of them go to jail. None of them lose their jobs. What cost do they incur for violating anything, None that I can see.
America loses every time, the Obama Admin never loses anything.

Janet, that's great. Thanks for your FB comment the other day, too, re: Colson - I meant to respond earlier but I've been erratic on FB lately.

Walter Russell Meade declares RIP for OWS.

Larry Sabado is both a college professor and a died in the wool Democrat. Filter everything the man says with that knowledge.

Larry Sabado is both a college professor and a died in the wool Democrat...

Who wears a ridiculous toupee.

To think that our esteemed President Obama nominated this lying sack of -hockeypucks- to be the head of the Consumer Protection Agency .. you know the part of the government that is supposed to protect us from lying credit companies.

I had no idea that being able to lie like the Son of Satan was a requirement for the job.

Rocco

I hunt with a bow, does that count?

Clarice

Janet, how nice of you to go to that service for Colson. You put us all to shame with your goodness.

Danube of Thought

Sabato's toupee is absurd.

Porchlight

America loses every time, the Obama Admin never loses anything.

Agree with you pagar, but Lord willing they will lose when it really counts in November. The ballot box shouldn't be the only remedy but sometimes it works out that way.

Skipping ahead - Howie Carr has a Cherokee genealogist on who says she can find no evidence of Warren's genealogy. She also says “she is stepping on the backs of Cherokee people to get what she wants" snf the best part: Cherokee's don't have Pow Wow's. The genealogist is being quite serious but it is absolutely hysterical. Oh and on facebook the Cherokees are pissed.

sailor

Dot, I thought the last time I saw him on the television he wasn't wearing it. Or am I wrong?

Jane

The Herald has sez Sabato, but the Globe hasn't tho' that's a bit understandable due to political leanings blah, blah, blah.

That's backwards. The Globe is owned by the NY Times and is just as liberal.

Apologies Jane,

Megyn was very hawt looking this morning.

Janet

Porch & Clarice -
I'm not so good, Clarice. It was a lovely service, about 3/4 full. I'd never been to the Nat'l Cathedral.

Colson's book "How Now Shall We Live" is one of my favorites. He speaks about moving into a post-Christian society....like people not knowing the old basic concepts in the Bible anymore & not understanding the language...sin, redemption, & humility.
It reminds me of our political situation with the Constitution. We have gotten so far away from the average citizen knowing anything about the structure of our country...& why it is so...& what a blessing it is. PD joked about "tea-vangelist", but it really seems like our country could use some. Handing out Constitution pamphlets on street corners! I personally think we could use some Bible evangelists too, but I won't open that door...today anyway. :)

Larry Craig, former senator and bathroom gay sex aficianado is a disgrace to my state. (OK, maybe Frank Church as well...) But what in the hell is wrong with MA? Warren, Kerry, Bluenthal? Frauds.

DebinNC

Janet, I admire you so much for so many reasons. The National Cathedral site has a webcast of Colson's memorial, and here's the service bulletin.

Another Indian connection, iirc, is the Boy Scout's "Order of the Arrow" component with an Indian theme. I attended one OA induction ceremony where the dads wore elaborate headdresses, recited supposedly inspiring speeches in "Hollywood Injun" to their sons, and a grand finale of flaming arrows shooting down a precariously rigged zipline.

Captain Hate

Blumenthal is Connecticut, no?

DebinNC

The only evidence I need in order to know the Cherokee are a superior people is the fact that Obama didn't carry a single county in OK.

Captain Hate

I'd never been to the Nat'l Cathedral.

I used to go with my church's choir for this one Sunday service where multiple area choirs would all join in on a joyous noise; before the church completely jumped the shark. It is a beautiful place.

OT,

Had a 4.6 Earthquake this morning occur almost exactly beneath my house, but 37 miles deep: See Map

The dogs went berserk barking. One quick, very strong jolt, then about 20 seconds of continuing subtler shifting movements.

We've also had a young grizzly stomping round the neighborhood, and this story has pics of hikers running from him.

I had no idea that being able to lie like the Son of Satan was a requirement for the job.

He nominated a tax cheat for Treasury, so why not a fraudster for the CPA?

Jane

Is everyone and thing okay Daddy?

NK

Fabulist Blumenthal is from TomM's and my state of Ct. We feel great shame.
