The latest digging in by Elizabeth Warren was, “My Native American heritage is part of who I am, I’m proud of it, and I have been open about it.’’ I find the statement surreal. For if that declaration were to go unchallenged, it would mean — by virtue of the past sanction of Harvard Law School and the brand of a possible U.S. senator — that we are simply who we say we are.This whole story of Lizzy's fun and profitable ancestry reminds me of the saying, "Conservatives use facts to arrive at their conclusions. Liberals use conclusions to arrive at their facts." Yes, indeed.
At some point, Warren’s statement is simply untenable and will have to be withdrawn, because if it is not, then we are essentially saying facts are what we choose to say facts are, and we can write or say anything we want and claim it as truth by reason of rumor, or serial insistence, or good intentions.America is a great country. If you're a Democrat, you can grow up to be anything you want...you can be a Cherokee Indian with ridiculously high cheekbones or even a dog-eater from Kenya.
DON'T LET HIM EAT ME!
