Elizabeth Warren already planning to cash in

Elizabeth Warren already planning to cash in

It’s not like you didn’t see this coming.  Those inane and made-for-YouTube moments, lacking in substance and confusing the gullible media, are the pre-publicity.

Anyone familiar with Elizabeth Warren’s history knows that she knows how to turn the “rigged” schtick into a buck. (Off topic, there’s this website I stumbled upon called ElizabethWarrenWiki.org  which has some details, from what people tell me.)

Via The Boston Globe:

Senator Elizabeth Warren plans to start shopping a book proposal to publishers, seeking to enhance her national political stature while promoting what she considers the cause of her public and legal career: protecting the middle class from abusive financial practices.

The book’s working title is “Rigged,” Warren said in an interview, and she expects it to offer a first-hand account of her battles in Washington to rein in the sorts of predatory lending and Wall Street excess that victimized everyday Americans.

While she has not placed a proposal in any publisher’s hands, it is conceivable the freshman senator could command a seven-figure contract, based on the bar set by books authored by Massachusetts politicians Governor Deval Patrick and former senator Scott Brown….

“Look at the title: the working title is ‘Rigged,’ ” she added. “It refers to how the economic system’s too often rigged against families who work hard and play by the rules — and how it’s loaded in favor of those with money and power.”

Warren is being represented by well-known Washington attorney Robert Barnett, who also negotiated the book deal for Brown, whom Warren defeated in November’s election, as well as deals for President Obama, former president George W. Bush, and former president Bill Clinton.

The Globe indicates Warren is not sure what she will do with her 7-figure payday:

While the book will be about fighting for the middle class, it could provide rich rewards for Warren, who said she had not thought about what she would do with the money.

I have an idea.

Donate the money to groups fighting against people who falsely claim Indian identity.

Here’s Adam Carolla’s rant about Warren’s obsession with the “rigged” system (language warning):

(By the way, the “janitor” narrative may be hyped.)

“It refers to how the economic system’s too often rigged against families who work hard and play by the rules — and how it’s loaded in favor of those with money and power.”

She-wolf pretending to advocate for the sheep!

Holy crap! Or…WHOLLY crap!!! She is the quintessential 1%er, elitist, “friend of the working man/woman/thing” poseur.

Oh Yeah, world class, fer sure. The Kennedy’s, Barney Fwank, Gerry Studds and now Sequoyah’s cousin. AKA Ms.22 Bucks an Hour.

Another self appointed friend of the working man, genuine like John Edwards.

EW = eeewwww……

But! this book might provide a fine opportunity for some good ‘ol fact checking….. EW is just not capable of telling the truth in any setting laregly because she does not understand the concepts of honesty and truth.

….Now if we can just get the MSM to print proof of EW’s (heavily expected) lying…it could be fun. …

What we will learn from “Rigged” is how Warren overcame the freaking “rigging” (frigging) going on: she became a falsified Cherokee, she practiced law without a license, she launched pompous and meaningless diatribes and she protected massive insurance companies from the little people’s asbestos personal injury claims.

Maybe she can get her dead, nonexistent Cherokee great grandma to ghost write it for her. Question? Would that make her a plagiarist when it is found the book is in actuality written by some unpaid Harvard sweatshop intern.

1. I wonder if the book was planned all along as part of a step by step process to make her President. I wonder if using ‘rigged’ at the convention was done with the title of the book already in mind. I wonder if the ghostwriter started work on the book the moment she won in November.

2. I could only stand half of the Carolla rant. It wasn’t the language, but the repellent tone.

3. Some conservative “pundits” do very nicely for themselves by appealing to conservatives’ base instincts. Then when swing voters see that stuff and we lose elections, those “pundits” laugh all the way to the bank.

4. There might be green shoots of hope (¡Cruz!), but unfortunately it remains true: conservative reaction to the unnecessary November defeats is more worrisome than the defeats themselves.

5. Everybody who supports LI knows Warren is a serious threat. The point is to convey that insight in a manner that doesn’t make swing voters write us off as vicious crazies—and put Betty in the White House.

6. Fact checking Warren makes no difference if the voters perceive us as the greater of two evils.

Washington, D.C. is the most rigged game in the Western Hemisphere; she’s a shameless, cheap opportunist who’s been scratching and clawing to get on board her entire “career.” Paying $740 thousand for a condo in Georgetown is not a measure of how cheap you are, or aren’t; stiffing the local professional society out of your annual dues is a measure. Too, the extraordinary hurdles she’s overcome in life are certain to solidify her status as a striver. Years and years of “me too, me too” native American ancestry claims in the face of overwhelming evidence to the contrary, and refusing to even meet with true native Americans adds “shameless” to “cheap” as “opportunist” modifiers.

I’m a middle class American (at least for a while longer – until she’s done with me). She is as interested in me as she is in paying her professional dues, she represents me as much as she does native Americans, and I’m not as gracious as they are, I don’t want to see her – I’d ask her to leave my property if she ever appeared at the front door.

I wonder which PR firm will write it for her? Also, will there be any mention of her Cherokee ancestry and how it shaped her amazing career? Perhaps she could publish in the Cherokee language, as well. In fact, Cherokee might be a great language for her to publish in, because the phrase, “lying sack of buffalo sh!t” has no literal translation. Neither does “stolen racial identity”. That way, she couldn’t be accused of obfuscating.

I’d love to see this Okie retread debate someone with an intellect higher than a box of Crispy Cremes.

O boy. This needs a treatment by the likes of Matt Stone + Trey Parker: “How I Became a Minority (like Bill-America’s First Black Prez-Clinton) (or Barack – White Kenyon – Obama) (and Liz – PowWow Chowerkee – Warren) and got into office / wrote a book …” and … well, aside from enforcing an anti-liberty pall across the nation, made Beaucoup Bucks!! Cool story.

Gee, that sound just like the political system – maybe Dizzy Lizzy got them mixed up ~

I’d much rather someone rein in the political power and excesses that victimize everyday Americans. The insufferable do-gooders in Washington plague us day in and day out far beyond the “evil” boogeymen of Warren’s fevered imagination.

Wasn’t publishing a couple of books a stepping stone to obama’s presidential run?
