I haven’t watched the video embedded at the bottom of this post in a long time.

I saw it while doing some fix up at ElizabethWarrenWiki.org, on the Elizabeth Warren Refusal To Meet With Native Americans page.

Every time I see progressives sing the praises about Warren, I think about how willingly they...

You don’t get more “progressive” than the Political Animal column at Washington Monthly, which has seen such luminaries as Steve Benen (now Rachel Maddow’s blogger) grace its pages.

In a column yesterday, Samuel Knight took Elizabeth Warren to task for voting in favor of corporate banker Jack Lew, Why Elizabeth Warren Voted...

Banking Analyst: “Elizabeth Warren’s Preposterous Grandstanding”

Posted by  ▪  Friday, February 22, 2013 at 1:30pm

Thomas K. Brown, a banking industry analyst and investor, writing at BankStocks.com, makes a point similar to what I made in my post, Elizabeth Warren’s heroic Senate demagoguery, that Warren’s Banking Committee YouTube performance was pure political grandstanding without substance or legitimate regulatory purpose.

As with her academic work analyzing bankruptcies, Warren took...

It’s hard to believe it’s only been about three weeks since we launched ElizabethWarrenWiki.org.

The goal was, and remains, to bring together in one place the wealth of research conducted during the Senate campaign by numerous blogs and newspapers on Elizabeth Warren’s background, and then to update and expand that information.

It’s a one-stop research shop.

Elizabeth Warren’s heroic Senate demagoguery

In her debut on the Senate Banking Committee, Elizabeth Warren once again became the hero of the left because she embarrassed Hapless Bank Regulators, as the Huffington Post put it:

Bank regulators got a sense Thursday of how their lives will be slightly different now that Elizabeth Warren sits on a Senate committee...

Look at how dreamy Morning Joe treats Elizabeth Warren’s “grilling” of bank regulators (it hardly was a grilling, just a single inane gotcha question she repeated over and over for dramatic effect):

Elizabeth Warren’s “belief in the power of transparency”

I think they’re in looooove.

They’re calling her “Wonder Warren” because — wait for it — she asked a government agency for more information because she suspected it was obfuscating and not being straight with the public!  Because no Senator or Congressman ever has done that before:

Think the unthinkable.  Left-wing bloggers are:

“[Webb] would also be the perfect candidate for vice president in 2016 with Elizabeth  Warren, which would allow the Dems to build again, not from ’60s nostalgia, but  from original new strengths.

And so are mainstream liberal publications.

It’s one of the reasons we created and will continue...

Why won’t she just come clean?

Go on Oprah, admit that the claim to be Cherokee was a mistake and that she knew it at the time or at least had serious doubts, but make like it’s not important to who she is as a person.

Her supporters don’t care anyway, and some...

After we called attention to the fact that Elizabeth Warren’s Wikipedia page had been cleansed of its section on her (false) claim to be Cherokee, a vigorous debate took place among editors of Wikipedia since the expungement of the information violated Wikipedia’s rules.

The section was restored, but in a less comprehensive...

Via Boston Herald, Liz won’t beat drum:

Despite repeated claims she is “proud” of her Cherokee heritage, newly minted U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren is keeping that pride under wraps and won’t be taking advantage of a chance to officially list herself as the Bay State’s first Native American U.S. senator.
