A handful of Scott Brown supporters including a couple of staffers mocked Elizabeth Warren’s phony claim to be Native American, a claim she maintains in the face of all evidence, based on grossly exaggerated (at best) supposed family lore.

It’s always interesting to see how an issue you are intimately involved in plays out when it makes it to national broadcasts.

Duranty had his own pathetic reasons for lying.  Today’s reporters do it to prop up President Obama, because calling spring winter wouldn’t look good for their…
