Elizabeth Warren’s autobiography is out, and it looks like she is sticking precisely to her campaign script on her false claim to be Cherokee. The title is “A Fighting Chance.”

Wendy Davis holding shotgun on stage

When Elizabeth Warren’s fake Cherokee status broke in late April 2012, Warren’s campaign went into panic for several days, issuing statements about Warren’s ancestry that proved troublesome when compared to the facts. The entire issue was portrayed as a Scott Brown campaign dirty trick, and the Boston Herald — the city’s...

Ever since the story broke that Wendy Davis — to be charitable to her — had embellished her personal narrative, many commenters and people on Twitter with whom I interact have suggested Elizabeth Warren as an analogy.

As readers know, I have been a harsh critic of Elizabeth Warren for claiming Native...

Elizabeth Warren Video - Lashes out at reporters over Native American Controversy

As you read the rest of this post, please keep in mind that Elizabeth Warren never has authorized release of her hiring files at Harvard Law School or other employers to see whether her phony Native American and Cherokee status was known at the time of hiring.

I thought she would consider it.

I hoped she would run.

We needed it as a country, though not for the reasons her supporters think.

Via Boston Herald:

U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren pledged today she will not run for president in 2016 and will finish her term.

Elizabeth Warren Netroots 2012 Woman of Color

Time Magazine recently ran a cover with a silhouette of Chris Christie with the headline, The Elephant in the Room.

It was, of course, a play on Christie’s weight without coming right out and saying it.
