Elizabeth Warren, a candidate for the Senate and the Cherokee tribe, is fading in at least one of those efforts, but she is delivering great material for Saturday Night Live:
Society: ‘We have no proof’ of Liz Warren’s claim
By Hillary Chabot
Elizabeth Warren’s embattled campaign faced another setback yesterday after the New England Historic Genealogical Society said there is no proof of her Native American heritage, forcing the novice candidate back to square one in the ongoing scandal, according to pundits.
Wild Bill Jacobson gets results!
But it ain't over 'til it's over, and Ms. Warren has another arrow in her quiver:
Another claim of Warren’s Native American lineage had come from her campaign, which had sent the Herald an undated Muskogee Sunday Phoenix article saying Warren’s cousin had “been involved” in the Five Civilized Tribes Museum in Oklahoma.
The cousin, Janyne “Candy” Rowsey, is listed in the article as judging a student art show at the museum. Her obituary shows she also edited “Pow Wow Chow,” a Native American cookbook produced by the museum. A spokeswoman at the museum said yesterday that she recognized the Rowsey name but she could not detail the cousin’s involvement at the tribal art museum.
This is a candidate for the US Senate? Wow. Just, wow. OK, just 'pow wow'. Wasn't there a sequel for dog lovers (NO, not Barack!) titled "Bow Wow Chow"? Darn this Amazon...
Waves of nostalgia are washing over me as I have a Nineties flashback. The best thing - actually the only good thing - about seeing the Atlanta Braves in the baseball playoffs each year was watching the painfully PC Jane Fonda doing the Tomahawk Chop.
And now Elizabeth Warren is talking up "Pow Wow Chow" as her entree into Cherokee Nation. SNL should save their scriptwriters some time and just read the Warren press releases.
