Desperate Lizzie Warren: Scott Brown is Trying to Change the Subject or Something

Posted by on May 09, 2012 at 7:55 am

Uh, no, sweetie, Senator Brown is more than happy to keep talking about your alleged 1/64th Cherokee heritage.

Elizabeth Warren waved off reports yesterday that an ancestor helped round up Cherokees in the infamous “Trail of Tears,” as well as demands from U.S. Sen. Scott Brown to prove she never claimed her Native American heritage to further her career — dismissing the developments as “politics as usual.”

“I think what this is about is Scott Brown trying to change the subject,” said Warren at a Brighton event last night. “He just wants to find a way to talk about something else, and I think it’s wrong. I think this is why people are turned off on Washington politics.”

Warren has been under fire for citing “family lore,” without documentation, that an ancestor was a Cherokee, and for listing herself as a “minority” law professor in a professional directory in the 1980s and ’90s.

But Paul Reed, a Utah genealogist who is a fellow at the American Genealogical Society, said he found primary documentation that shows Warren’s great-great-great grandfather Jonathan Crawford served in a Tennessee militia unit that rounded up Cherokees before they were force-marched to Oklahoma in the infamous “Trail of Tears.”

“Jonathan H. Crawford did serve in the Indian wars,” said Reed. “He is listed as serving in the company that rounded up Cherokees.”

The story gives credit to our friends at Legal Insurrection and Breitbart (it would be nice if they actually linked them) for the story, something sure to infuriate the clowns from Media Matters.

The hapless Warren, meanwhile, lamely accused Brown of using taxpayer money to film a video of him nailing a shot from half court at a recent appearance. Yes, they’re that desperate.

Democrats tried to turn the tables on the Brown campaign last night, saying they plan to file an ethics complaint against him today, accusing him of filming his recent half-court basketball shot on the taxpayers’ dime.

Incredibly weak. But what a nice shot it was.

Howie Carr also piles on Warren.

    Scott Brown: I did the shot left handed because I wanted to be invited to a luncheon. Bwahahahahaha.

    he should invite her to Fenway the next time the Cleveland Indians come to town. That would be epic.

    I can’t think of anyone right now who’s making a bigger fool of themselves than Elizabeth Warren. She’s reacting like a childish little asshole because SHE has been caught with her hand in the cookie jar by playing identity politics and can’t give a rational or honest explanation of why. Now she wants to walk the whole thing back.

    She, along with all of her fellow democraps who insist on trying to cover for her, have exposed themselves as being beneficiaries of the fraudulent and void policy of Affirmative Action and the quota system. Now they’ll say and do anything to “take it back”. Too damn late. You’ve been caught at it.

    Instead of doubling down, tripling down, quadrupling down, she needs to either shut the fuck up and and quit digging a deeper hole for herself, or admit her deception and put this shit behind her. Whoever is handling her campaign has to be the biggest idiots in politics right now.

    Live by Affirmative Action – Die by Affirmative Action you stupid twit.

    Lizzie Warren took a political axe
    and gave her rival 40 whacks
    when she saw what she had done
    she gave her own campaign 41

    So it was OK for Obama to use public money to miss five times and make on three pointer because he is a white-black guy or just because he is a demokrat?

    Iowahawk said it best ( as usual):

    Princess running joke has hit bottom, and decided to dig. She then struck bedrock. She then chose to break out a jackhammer.

    ‘What makes the red woman red?” To paraphrase disney’s Peter Pan. BTW the claim that her muligreat grandmother was Cherokee also failed.

    Nice high cheekbones. Kinda like every single Indian who has ever lived. That’s how you can tell, you know. It’s genetics.

    I can see why she might be a bit confused.

    Every once in a while, we run into politicians who fancy up their records when they run for office. John Kerry, for instance, was a military hero. Or Al Gore, for another. Both served brilliant, distinguished and celebrated military careers in the late unpleasantness in Vietnam. We never would have won in Vietnam without their brave contributions if it wasn’t for them. And Bill Clinton. No, not Bill Clinton. Skip Clinton.
