    Elizabeth #sillyforma Warren

    Very nice video production by Jack Gately appearing at Red Mass Group:

    Update:  You knew this was coming, from a columnist at The Nation:  ‘Boston Herald’ vs. Elizabeth Warren: Will Sexism Win?  Oh yes, because catching a candidate for Senate falsely claiming minority status and making outlandish rants is sooooo sexist.

    This is awesome! Scott Brown should smear this all over the airwaves for everyone in Massachusetts to see. I think she will be Martha Coakley II with all of these stupid gaffes she keeps making.

    Out. Of. Touch.

    I am still amazed and annoyed:

    1. Why hasn’t she been reprimanded or fired from Harvard?
    2. Is Harvard guilty of improper vetting of her minority background claims? Isn’t there a penalty/fine [or a Roberts “tax”] for negligently submitting false labor certifications to the DOL?
    3. Didn’t Harvard question her white to Native American to white claims? Nobody wants to step up to the plate with some SOLID answers.
    4. Isn’t plagiarism [even cookbook plagiarism] a serious offense at an academic institution?

      1. Why hasn’t she been reprimanded or fired from Harvard?
      1A: She’s a liberal. Rules don’t apply to liberals.

      2. Is Harvard guilty of improper vetting of her minority background claims? Isn’t there a penalty/fine [or a Roberts “tax”] for negligently submitting false labor certifications to the DOL?
      2A: They are liberals, like Corzine, no one gets punished for anything if they are liberals. If you are doubting this, see Mary Jo Kopechne.

      3. Didn’t Harvard question her white to Native American to white claims? Nobody wants to step up to the plate with some SOLID answers.
      3A: The media is the Democrat Party. They intermarry and trade people left and right, so no hard questions from them. The universities are outright communist sympathizers, so you will get nothing from them. And, I am detecting a hint of racism in this question, let me get back to you from Chris Mathews.

      4. Isn’t plagiarism [even cookbook plagiarism] a serious offense at an academic institution?
      4A: This only applies to conservatives, and liberals who step out of line. This definitely does not apply to politicians running for office in Massachusetts. Okay, now I am sure, you are definitely being racist.

      This is the playbook:

      Republicans=EVIL

      Democrats=Saintly Angels who are smeared by the ReTHUGlicans/Karl Rove/Koch Brothers/Chick Fil A/Christians/ Leftist outrage organization de jour.

      By the way, did you see that Mitt Romney is most definitely not paying his taxes. Harry Reid told me.

        X 4.5-trillion!

        Also, I know a guy whose brother’s, mother-in-law’s, half-brother knows a lady whose son’s, son-in-law went to school with a guy who knows a guy at Bain Capital that said what he told Reid was a crock of bullsh!t. He said that Reid wouldn’t let him out of the men’s room stall at the Golden Corral until he said something bad about Romney’s taxes.

        I swear that’s true. On a stack of Obama 2012 bumper stickers.

    The clip is a good first cut but I have a couple of suggestions.

    1. IMO the Tiananmen clip is over the top. The video would be better if that clip were replaced with China’s ghost cities or headlines about problems with their high-speed rail.

    2. If Warren has literally “thrown rocks” at people she disagrees with, that is big news. However, that clip is so short that it invites questions about the context of the quote.

    A more solid choice would be juxtaposing some Occupy damage with Warren’s boast that she supplied the intellectual foundation.

    3. I agree with the RedMass commenter who said that Martha Coakley would do less damage in the Senate than Warren. (Not only that, IMO Warren views the Senate as a steppingstone to higher office.)

    (I will have an awful lot to say about Scott Brown if he blows this election by his arrogance toward the Tea Party people without whom he would not be in office. Get on your knees and beg for forgiveness, Brown!)

      Thank you for your thoughtful comments.

      Nothing says Chinese repression to me more than the Tiananmen Square “Tank Man”.

      I did play around with including “intellectual foundation” quote and some OWS footage, in earlier drafts, but cut for length.

      Stay well, Jack
