You morons dragged Palin through the mud 4yr ago. How soon you forget.
Warren deserves every ounce of ridicule she gets. I'm in MA and 3 out of 5 Dems I talk to are voting for Brown including many union members.
Dragged her through the mud?? Oh yes, by repeating her statements. She was impossible to satirize because her own statements were so far over the top.

I suggest you do the same to Warren. Just repeat her statements and point out how funny they are.

OMG, not only is this stupid woman a fake Indian, she is a fake lawyer as well. She is not now, nor has she ever been licensed to practice law in Massachusets. She is a total phony. Welcome back Senator Brown!!!

WATCH THIS VIDEO,PASS IT ON TO THOSE WHO STILL
BELIEVE IN THE USA!!
Thank you,
This video made by the U.S. Navy Seals may cost Obama his second term in
office. It's just incredible how effective this video is in convincing
Americans that Obama is a very serious national traitor.
History will judge him negatively for 1,000 years. Incredibly powerful video!
Senior CIA, FBI, Military and many other U.S. government intelligence officials
describe for the viewer how Obama has compromised U.S. national secrets and
the very serious consequence of those actions. And what's worse, he did it all for
political gain so he could win a second disastrous term in office.

Calls Them "Gutless"
Watch the video.

That assumes that Elizabeth Warren has got some Cherokee blood in her. She has no proof, none of her ancestors is on the Nations roles, she just has 'stories my parents & grandpearents told me'.

Hell, I at least have a marriage certificate from my ancestery that a Seminole brave took one of my Irish, female ancestors as a squaw- that doesn't make me an Seminole, however.

And this was not an innocent claim. She used these stories to get financial largess (in the form of jobs, status,etc). Now, she's been called out on it and doubles down with a passion.

That she has book smarts and can talk intelligently does not mean that she has the one thing critical thinking requires- common sense.

Who does she think she is being smart, and successful.
Her salary at Harvard is too high. There are probably male professors at Harvard who don't make as much as her, and that is just wrong.
I fInd the success of a 1/2 Cherokee, liberal, woman to be repulsive.
I much prefer only mildly intelligent people like Scott Brown, or Paul Ryan.
Our politicians have a duty to America to not be too smart, because the working class needs politicians they can identify with. Like Mitt Romney.
These "smarty pants" professors should just stay in school and leave the governing to those who are more not brilliant.

How dare she use her own heritage for her own benefit.
The only thing worse then an educated woman is and educated Indian, and she claims to be both. How despicable.
We should just burn down Harvard. Education doesn't pay off.
She could have made 1/2 a million a year just selling beads on the side of the road. But instead she pretends to be an expert on the things she is an expert in, and just takes money for it. Terrible.
Good thing the well educated are not in a social class of their own, otherwise the right would be guilty of class warfare, and we know they hate that.
One thing is for sure, Republicans do not need educated leaders. They do just fine with the idiots they have, and with the cost of education rising, and govt support for education falling, the GOP will continue to keep a solid 44% stake in politics.

She thinks she is so smart, I'll bet she doesn't even know how to dumbo spam onto political form boards nearly as well as LeCrapbo.

I have no idea if she's a minority, and I really don't care.

What Senator Brown's staff was doing was insulting to ALL Native Americans, and should be insulting to all AMERICANS.

Once again, it that kind of stupidity that costs the GOPasaurs the votes of minorities and the millions of the majority who oppose such blatant disrespect to our fellow Americans.

Clueless, absolutely clueless.

What's next, a watermelon eating contest to mock President Obama?

Genealogy reports by the Cherokee Nation revealed that Granny Warren had a great great great grandfather who was a member of the Tennessee Militia who rounded up Cherokees from their family homes in the Southeastern United States and herded them into government-built stockades in what was then called Ross’s Landing (now Chattanooga), Tennessee—the point of origin for the horrific Trail of Tears, which began in January, 1837.

The insult was the fraud, lies and theft that she prepetrated to get favors, affirmitive action and money..........then of couse there is practicing law without a license. The Cherokee's want nothing to do with the hag.

I'm not a big Brown fan, and I'm not from Mass. I have a problem with a lot of campaign staffers, but what are you and I (not being from Mass) going to do about it? This is Brown's problem to deal with. If my Senators (I currenlty live in IA) had idiots on their staffs, I would be in a better position to do something about it.

I have always held that the problem isn't whose butt warms the leather in the Oval Office, but the 535 idiots we keep electing to the Hill. No reason and no excuse for it- escept they are all promising something...

You're right, this will be Sen Brown's problem to deal with. That's my point, it's gonna be a problem.

I just find it amusing when Republicans still can't understand why minorities vote overwhelmingly for the Dems, when people who identify as Republicans keep doing stupid crap like this.

Brownie KNOWS he's losing, KNOWS his seat is slipping away, and has become desperate. Dropping the issues like a hot potato, he's chosen to attack Ms. Warren's alleged Native ancestry and to sneer at her for being a 'professor.'

The latter is oddly appropriate, though, given that reTHUGlicans hate education and are suspicious of learned or intelligent people. Brown may actually get a few MA rubes into his camp by attacking her credentials.

Probably won't balance out the number of folks he LOSES, however, by acting like an angry spoiled child and a punk.

So long, Scottie! So long!! LOL

Except that all of those things are lies, and she never got a dime or a bit of advantage by mentioning possible Native heritage.

As usual, Spambot lies through his teeth then responds to being called on his lies by posting more lies, or offtopic garbage from SludgeDrudge.

Shameful what some people will do to get their hands on a pony...:)

I suppose you have PROOF of that claim, which BTW doesn't negate the possibility that she also might have Native American blood?
