I propose a Sense of the Senate resolution recognizing Elizabeth Warren as the first female Native American Senator

Following up on this sarcasm by Eric Larson at Ricochet (h/t reader Danny), legislative action is needed:

Is Elizabeth Warren the First Female Native American Senator?

If I have this right, then Elizabeth Warren is the first female Native American senator. Surely this is something to be celebrated! Is the press appropriately acknowledging this breakthrough? Surely we can congratulate her on this, since it is an historic milestone indeed. I say this with no animosity. Since we’ve been beaten, isn’t it time to recognize the winning party for their achievements?

Why not a Sense of the Senate resolution recognizing this great achievement?

See how many votes she gets.

This is a wonderful idea. We can see what nonsense, incense, and common sense prevail on this issue. It is important that many more Native Americans celebrate this momentous occasion. There is not enough awareness yet. A new Native American Saint Kateri, and now Senator Lizzie. Progress.

There are problems with this.

1) Leftists are immune to sarcasm.
2) Right now, at least some of the people recognize this for what it is. But within a year, the enemies of our country will be citing the vote in the Congressional Record as proof that all the opposition to her was racist, sexist, and bigoted.
3) You do realize that pretty much all of the Republicans in the Senate will vote in favor of the resolution, and be serious about it.

I am not averse to attacks and insults to any of the enemy. But ridicule works better than sarcasm, as they hate to be openly mocked.

    Subotai is spot on. The number of GOP senators smart – or ethical – enough to vote against this can be counted on the fingers of one hand. The remainder are too “elite” (rhymes with “effete”) to rock betters’ boats.

    The point isn’t to defeat it, even if the R’s vote for it they won’t be the ones negatively affected (if they are smart they’ll simply abstain.)

    It is the Dems who vote for it that will then bear the ire of those enrolled in recognized tribes. They will remember, and if you look at the map, it’s not like they’ve been electing Republican Senators much.

    This would bite Democrats much harder. The effects may not be immediately significant, but they would be lasting. It is only a single shot in the culture war, but take them when you’ve got them.

    If the Dems abstain or vote against it, all the better.

    No, its Brilliant!

    Its even MORE effective if it passes!

    Think about it. Warren would either have to accept the ‘honor’ or would have to admit she was a fraud. Either way, she looks horrible.

Prof., you have a diabolical aspect I have never fully appreciated.

Dark. But I LIKE it…!!!

Harvard should have their name included, for their inclusionary policies.

“Harvard, accepting fake minority status since 1988”

(or whatever year it was)

It should be a double award for also being the first female attorney to take the bar exam while breast feeding also!

I am sure Democrats are proud to be such trailblazers. So to speak. Forked tongues and all.

I am on board!

Also, while we are in a lighter mood, there is something that I should not make light of, but my personality compels me to proceed:

You would think that West Point, Princeton, Georgetown, would not crank out a “product” that did not know that “bitches be crazy!”

One more reason to start bringing RICO claims against leading institutions including, ahem, Harvard Law School (sorry Professor J.)

Kerry to State, and this guy for Democrat Senate in Massachusetts in special election or in 2014:

Celebrating a Native American Abuser from a long line of indian haters as the first Cherokee Senator would be ohh soo sweet

Let me get this straight… First, I was under the impression that in order to claim demographic preference, it must be at least 1/16 lineage and Second, wasn’t here claim boiled down to 1/32 IF it were true?

Or am I just being a biased nitpicker here???

Bravissimo!!!!!!!

This is sublime, and I really like the idea of recognizing both Harvard and Penn for their contributions as well.

For Dizzy Miss Lizzy, a little sense of shame wouldn’t go amiss.

Let’s do it, and maybe the Spirit of Russell Charles Means will come back to haunt her, as in torment her, not haunt her as in torment us.

Be careful. She may see it an an “honor” rather than the real intent of sarcasm.

There I did it.

I petitioned the white house to publicly recognize her. SIGN THE PETITION

Ah, the solution for Republicans is to encourage Senator Long Face to make the proposal and for no Republicans to vote on it. Well, maybe McCain and Gramnesty could vote for it that if that is absolutely required but all other Republicans should completely abstain from voting on that resolution.
🙂

I am already seeing comments regarding Elizabeth Warren for President ! Be careful Professor, you may become one of the original new Birthers…..
