About That Hardworking Liar and All That

…terrific hard work that got her her gigs, ’cause she’s just so darn good and being some sort of Indian princess doesn’t matter anyway, because she’s so impressive, people see what a hardworking, terrific job-doer she is and give her the job anyway?

Dang if the innerwebs aren’t forever for finding “stuff”. Like, from 2009…

Elizabeth Warren and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad, Utterly Misleading Bankruptcy Study

Elizabeth Warren has another study out showing that medical expenses contribute to more than half of all bankruptcies–indeed, this time, it’s 70%, up from the 50% she found in 2001.

Now, it is possible that this is true. The fact that it seems to disagree with every other study I’ve ever read that is not authored by Elizabeth Warren, and also, the self-reports of the people in her study (only about a third of whom attribute their bankruptcy to a health problem) could just be a fluke. It doesn’t necessarily mean that it’s wrong.

Yet upon closer examination, it turns out that it is not just wrong, but actively, aggressively wrong. Warren and her co-authors have obscured important and obvious facts that call the integrity of the work into serious question.

It’s blistering.

H/T to my man Chris Coon, who’s doing yeoman’s work keeping Fauxcahontas front and center on Twitter for MA voters.

ths update: I’m going to show a little maturity and NOT go for the obvious pun here

‘Pow Wow’ factor: Elizabeth Warren touted native roots in ’84 cookbook

Elizabeth Warren was touting her claim of Cherokee heritage as early as 1984, according to a cookbook titled “Pow Wow Chow” edited by her cousin that includes Warren’s recipes for a savory crab omelet and spicy barbecued beans.

The cookbook, edited by Warren’s cousin Candy Rowsey, is a compilation of “special recipes passed down through the Five Tribes families,” according to the introduction in a copy obtained by the Herald.

Warren, who has been under fire for claiming Indian lineage despite a lack of documentation, is identified as “Elizabeth Warren, Cherokee” under each of five recipes she contributes in the cookbook, published in 1984 by the Five Civilized Tribes Museum located in Muskogee. Warren is not listed as an official member of the Cherokee tribe and she has been unable thus far to document her claim of any Native American heritage.

As Gary says in the comments below the video a post or so down, it’s still neck and neck, and not to underestimate “these people”. I don’t. Hell, they elected Blumenthal in Conn., despicable liar that he is and I consider his sins FAR more egregious.

But I do NOT think this woman has ever come in contact with anything like the disparagement, interrogatives and outright impertinence her illustrious personage is being subjected to, and it is, for lack of a better term, delicious.

    I think that refers to her car, you racist h8tr.

    I mean, in the same cookbook you are listed as “Tree Hugging Sister, Javelin.”

  2. JeffS says:

    Wouldn’t THS be listed as a Druid? That’s a definite minority.

    High cheekbones and a published recipe.

    I guess that makes me an Indian a Native American.

  4. Syd B. says:

    Did Elizabeth graduate from the same school of writing biographies as Obama. They could trade with each other and they’d be as equally close to the truth.

    LOL – actually, her looks don’t mean squat – but that 1/32 is just ridiculous. (Sorry – had a friend in HS who was HALF Seminole. Blond hair, blue eyes and freckles. And for the sceptics among us, NO, it was his MOTHER who was Amerind. And looked it. He just took after his British father.)

    Also had a 1/16 black friend (was a bit of a shock to the family, when they found out, as that 1/16 was passing…) – blond, blue-eyed, freckles.

    So never mind her looks. But that I’m 1/32 and I’m minority just plain stinks.
