The progressive deification of Elizabeth Warren has started
Progressives and the media are inventing the Elizabeth Warren they want
I’ve tried to lay a little low on Elizabeth Warren lately, saving my strength for when she gets sworn in and the entire media covers up her false claim to be Native American, among other things.
I was provoked (yes, provoked!) into posting today by these highlighted words in a column by Robert Kuttner at The American Prospect, The Importance of Elizabeth Warren:
It isn’t just that Warren is a resolute progressive. It’s that she knows so much about the financial industry, from her years as chair of the Congressional Oversight Panel for the TARP, and before that as one of the leading scholars of bankruptcy and consumer abuses. And it’s that she’s incorruptible, as well as very smart…
… There are still a handful of senators who are both resolute progressives and effective legislators…. But there used to be many, many more. With Warren, we will get one of the best.
She cheated during her career by listing herself as Native American for employment purposes despite knowing she had no basis for claiming that status and didn’t meet the definition of Native American. That definition almost certainly would have been on some if not all of the forms she signed, dating back to the mid-to-late 1980s when she first started claiming the status. Not surprisingly, the progressive champion of transparency for others will not release those records.
The progressive champion of accountability also has not acknowledged, much less apologized for, her misconduct, instead grossly exaggerating if not making up irrelevant family lore as a cover-up.
Funny, given that Warren now claims being Native American was a fundamental part of who she and her family were, how is it she waited until she was in her late 30’s and climbing the law professor ladder before she claimed that status, and even then only for employment purposes?
How is it this proud alleged Native American never, ever, associated with Native Americans much less did anything to help Native Americans?
How is it that this progressive alleged Native American refused to meet even with other progressive Native Americans at the Democratic National Convention?
Warren’s misappropriation of a Native American identity for career purposes apparently means nothing to progressives, which is ironic considering how frequently progressives use the Native American experience as a tool for demonizing the country.
The progressive deification of Elizabeth Warren has started.
The only thing that stands in the way is the truth.
Update: Professor Reynolds has a point —
@sissywillis @leginsurrection You can’t corrupt what’s already corrupted.So true in a way . . . .

Yea, she’s so smart she graduated from a law school ranked #182. Yea, she’s so smart that Harvard bypassed their norm of hiring from top tier law schools and hired someone from #182 law school. Yea, she’s so smart alright.
Yeah, and she’s so smart she ended her campaign in debt…. while Scott Brown’s campaign has ended with a surplus!!!
Professor…In my sensitive, delicate opinion, Sir, this corrupt, sleazy, lyin’ Moral Midget ain’t worth 10-more seconds of your classy time.
She says much about Massachusetts, Liberals-Progressives-Lefties of DemoDumb and isn’t equal to a drop of a good man’s phlegm. Trust me.
Warren’s qualifications match up nicely with Hillary’s. Perhaps they can run together as a presidential ticket.
They are grooming Lizzy for a 2016 Presidential run.
“Warren’s misappropriation of a Native American identity for career purposes apparently means nothing to progressives,…”
In all likelihood, Obama went to college as an Indonesian national exchange student. He was sponsored by a wealthy muslim Pakistani named Mansour, in getting into Harvard.
In all likelihood, Obama went to college as an Indonesian national exchange student.
Really? “In all likelihood”?! What is the basis for this claim? Do you have even one shred of evidence for it? One thing that makes it even a possibility worth considering, let alone likely? Do you even know what an exchange student is?
O too bad. I read the title progressive DEFECATION
Well … in a land of Jewish Honey Badgers … why not a blue-eyed, fair-skinned Cherokee?
It’s called diversity, people. Get real. Get diverse.
LHCool…Yep, a person of tolerance & diversity keyed my car.
“…it’s that she’s incorruptible…”
The sleaze that write political fiction are clearly not one among us.
It’s gonna be a looooong four years..
Unfortunately, Grumpy, Senators serve for six L-O-N-G years.
I don’t think that Warren will be much of a factor after 2014 but we WILL have to endure O’bammy until January of 2017 with a hellacious lame duck period at the end.
Her tribal members (i.e., the Bolshevik tribe) don’t plan on leaving her in the senate for a whole six years. As you point out above, they have plans for her. So it is two years of [voting “present”] in the senate, then two years of campaigning for her next position. (Either that, or First Female Native American Justice!)
Wait till Moses finds out about the Golden Warren!
Nobody’s ever tried to corrupt her – she did it all on her own! 🙂
Professor – seriously – you were provoked? I know what that means in a legal sense… If you’re going to use the ‘provoked’ argument, could it at least be for something more serious than Warren??? 🙂 I might be provoked to laughter at her, but that’s about it.
You would have thought that the democraps would max out on frauds at some point.
At some point I’ll be accused of sounding like a broken record, but I’m going to repeat myself anyway.
They. Don’t. Care.
Maybe some, somewhere, do. But I can’t think of a single Democrat who I regularly talk with (and these aren’t ‘free phone’ Democrats) who show the slightest concern for ANYTHING Obama is doing nor any other Democrat. Warren is a Democrat and she won. The interest stops there.
Now that they have their own Great White Mother in Washington, I’m sure Native Americans everywhere feel better about themselves. RIght?
Erik Larsen at ricochet had a great idea just post election:
It never went anywhere so far as I know. But in light of Warren’s “incorruptible” nature, I think beating them to the punch and erecting a statue/plaque commemorating the “Female Native American Senator” is perfect.
A truly tasteful dedication with red carpet celebrity attendance, media saturation coverage, distinguished and prominent Native Americans, foreign dignitaries, local and national politicians, everybody who’s anybody. Complete with Native American heritage and lore, educational PSA video vignettes, musical performances, dances and tribal rites.
Oops… I meant: The “First Female Native American Senator”
Perhaps in the eyes of a progressive, ‘incorruptible’ means she cannot be pervereted (not deviating from accepted ideology) less than it means cannot be morally compromise, in his eyes.
Please join my campaign to replace progressive with the much more accurate regressive.
I’m partial to shitheads myself.
My’O’My…Just look at all the thumbs downers on this thread, y’all. A Troll has escaped from Shady Oaks Asylum and–lucky us–it’s landed here.
Are we not blessed,’Yo?
