So, the Won’s are stiffing Hillary, Bill and Joey in favor of a mini-me ideologue of dubious provenance. Who, other than see-all, know-it-all mirror, could have seen that one coming? And I don’t mind saying I told you so because it gives me an opportunity to do summer reruns from the vault.
From June 15, 2012: Channeling our inner Cherokee: a social contract story
“You built a factory out there? Good for you. But I want to be clear: you moved your goods to market on the roads the rest of us paid for; you hired workers the rest of us paid to educate; you were safe in your factory because of police forces and fire forces that the rest of us paid for...
“Now look, you built a factory and it turned into something terrific, or a great idea? God bless. Keep a big hunk of it. But part of the underlying social contract is you take a hunk of that and pay forward for the next kid who comes along.” - Elizabeth Warren September, 2011
"Look, if you’ve been successful, you didn’t get there on your own" - Barack Hussein Obama, Roanoke,Virginia July 2012
“I’m always struck by people who think, well, it must be because I was just so smart.”
“It must be because I worked harder than everybody else.”
From January 28, 2012: Our Most Populist President Ever
You built a factory out there? Good for you. But I want to be clear: you moved your goods to market on the roads the rest of us paid for; you hired workers the rest of us paid to educate; you were safe in your factory because of police forces and fire forces that the rest of us paid for. You didn't have to worry that marauding bands would come and seize everything at your factory, and hire someone to protect against this, because of the work the rest of us did." - Elizabeth Warren
While there’s a point in there somewhere, I’m not sure she’s right about the factory owners not having to worry about marauding bands coming to seize everything they have:
From May 9, 2012: Evolving
It hasn’t always been this way. Oh sure, lying and politics go way back, butt Big Dawg Clinton can be credited with taking this concept to the level it enjoys today. Once you can say “It depends on what the meaning of the word ‘is’, is” with a straight face, you’ve evolved “evolving” to another whole dimension. Now, as long as you can say something with a straight face, you can say anything.
Take the case of Pochahontas Warren for example. This blonde haired, blue eyed princess so wanted to relate to the victims that she hoped to one day represent that she actually claimed to be “one of them.”
Victor Davis Hansen comments on the nature of this recent
fraud scamidentity “evolution:”
Anyone who has taught in a university has come across the “Cherokee” con, especially given the Oklahoma diaspora in California. By the time I retired from CSU, I was exhausted with “1/16th” Cherokee students, who claimed success with their gambits. This was a world of Provost Liz Smith-Lopezes, José Beckers, Simba Bavuals, and all the other attempts to traffic in victimized identities.
From May 19, 2010: “Birth” of a Liberal’s “Truth”
So can you believe it? One little teeny-tiny mistake eventually turned into this whole huge “Birther” controversy that lives on to this day. Thanks to the rightwing nutz.
The same sort of thing happened to Elizabeth Warren: she happened to mention to her sorority sisters one day how much she enjoyed Indian pudding, and the next thing you know everyone just assumed she was Cherokee – on account of her high cheek bones! Boy, if high cheekbones is all it takes to be part Cherokee, we might just have another little princess around here.
Could Lady M’s high cheekbones mean she’s part Indian too? Or at least part Brahmin, like Lizzie Warren? Or at least Brahman? Because aren’t they Indians too?
From September 18, 2010: Take Our Constitution to Work Day
Anyway, Liz will be reporting, jointly, to Big Guy and little guy -Timmy the Turbo-Taxman. That way we’re guaranteed that the Constitution can take a rest until next year.
It’s the federal holiday previously known as Columbus Day, so there’s not much going on around town. Because Big Guy and Elizabeth Warren are charter members of the First Peoples anti-colonialist coalition, we’ve decided to follow Brown University’s lead and rename the second Monday in October “Fall Holiday.” We don’t have anything planned for the event, butt Lady M will be sporting her annual “Fall Holiday” costume anyway.
There’s more in the vault, butt I’ve got to save some for when Elizabeth becomes the Communist party’s first
Redskin Native American candidate for President.
