Elizabeth Warren, the favorite of right wing comics everywhere, is back on the warpath:
Elizabeth Warren says she knows she is part Native American 'because my mother told me so'
George Will noted this:
Blond, blue-eyed Elizabeth Warren, the Senate candidate and Harvard professor who cites "family lore" that she is 1/32nd Cherokee, was inducted into Oklahoma's Hall of Fame last year. Her biography on oklahomaheritage.com says she "can track both sides of her family in Oklahoma long before statehood" (1907) and "she proudly tells everyone she encounters that she is 'an Okie to my toes.'" It does not mention any Cherokee great-great-great-grandmother. A DVD of the induction ceremony shows that neither Warren nor anyone else mentioned this.
I guess her Cherokee pride was a variable thing.
