    Next weekend, commonwealth Democrats are holding their annual state convention. It will be a gathering of moonbats wearing Birkenstocks and socks, union payroll patriots and limousine liberals. Although Fauxcahontas Elizabeth Warren is their anointed candidate to take on U.S. Sen. Scott Brown, state Democratic Party Chairman John Walsh is predicting that Marisa DeFranco, a Boston immigration lawyer with a mere 1200 Facebook friends, is going to get 15 percent of the delegates, allowing her to be on the September ballot. That means Sitting Duck Warren will have to face a primary.

    This is contrary to the strategy deployed last fall when Democratic challengers such as Mayor Setti Warren and Alan Khazei had a mysterious change of heart and thus quickly dropped out of the race. Khazei has to be kicking himself around the block for quitting the race so early and clearly missing the Native American bundler in his opposition research.[...]

    As an advocate for more transparency within financial institutions, how does Lizzy avoid debating DeFranco? It should happen, unless she speaks with a forked tongue.

    Having a Plan B might be a good idea for the Democrats, because Lizzy is more flawed as a candidate than Marsha Coakley.

    Don’t take my word on it. Take President Obama’s. Last summer, Obama refused to nominate Fauxcahontas to head up the new Consumer Federal Protection Bureau. She was sidelined for Ohio Attorney General Richard Cordray. Maybe if she hadn’t deleted the reference to her phony Native American status, Obama would have chosen her.

    As Vice President Joe Biden would say, Lizzy being snubbed is a “big (expletive) deal.” She dreamed up the consumer agency and built it. The White House’s reason for failing to nominate Fauxcahontas is due to a belief she could not get confirmed by the Senate. Maybe we now know why.

    More than 150 Cherokee Indians have joined a group online demanding more information from Massachusetts senate candidate Elizabeth Warren about her claims of Native American heritage.

    “You claim to be Cherokee. …We don’t claim you!” the group “Cherokees Demand Truth from Elizabeth Warren” declares on its website.

    Warren has been embroiled in a controversy for weeks after it was revealed that the Harvard law professor once touted herself as an American Indian minority. She has since struggled to prove those claims as critics argue she claimed that heritage to further her career.

    According to a mission statement posted on its website, the group is made up of “authentic Cherokees and descendants devoted to sharing the truth about our history.”

    The group said they are made up of descendants from the Cherokee Nation, the United Keetoowah Band of Cherokee Indians and the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians.

    “Our mission is to help people understand what a real Cherokee is and to show why Elizabeth Warren claiming to be Cherokee without proof is harmful and offensive to us.”

    This is bullshit. Everyone I know in higher education claims to be American Indian by way of some small percentage of some unheard of ancestor that could have happened a hundred years ago on some field in Kansas or something. Everyone claims to be 1/32 Apache or something. It's always bullshit and no one cares.
    This is a non-issue.

    I obviously can't refute what you wrote because I don't know who you know in higher education, but I have never heard of large percentages of people in or out of higher education make such a claim. It is hard to prove, as this article suggests:

    That's why the Harvard law school actually touted her as the first woman of color they hired?

    I know it's hard to believe, but I do have a lot of interaction with people in higher education and in conversation these incredibly white people will let slip, "well as a Native American" and I will almost always snort or laugh, and they will fein some sort of disgust at my disbelief, and then go about claiming how they are 1/32nd or some such some unknown tribe of Tnglit or Cherokee or whatever.
    So now, when I go to conferences or any other official function and I am signing up, I always always always sign up as a Native American, because my mom always did have a way with salmon.
