  •  IMHO he is saying (20+ / 0-)

    that Elizabeth Warren isn't Native American and that she knowingly misrepresented her lineage.  I am (a very small amount) of Native American although I have blonde hair and green eyes.  If I had in any way claimed what my family says is my heritage, I would be under an equal amount of fire, even though my Grandmother was regularly carded (for race) when she and my Grandfather went to restaurants back in the olde days in Alabama because they thought she was African American.

    I have yet to see proven that Native American claims got Elizabeth Warren anything she wouldn't have gotten anyway and so the whole thing is specious.

    I would simply come back at him and say, "Is that all you got?  I suppose you are going to say that I got unfair breaks for being a woman as well."

    •  Why are we still talking about this? (3+ / 0-)

      Scott Brown is making hay with it.  I have been doing calling for Warren and there is a strange resistance to her in some people that seems to me to suggest that the Indian issue is paying off for Brown.  What's awful is that the debate moderators, both of them, have played into the issue instead of insisting on issue oriented debates.  I don't think Brown would bother if the thing didn't have legs.
      You can call me a concern troll and I do get pessimistic but I am worried and I agree with jhannon that the Indian attack was handled badly in the first months of the campaign.  
      What I am finding is that people who are for Elizabeth are very enthusiastic about her, and also  that what  seems to have legs for us is that Brown is so rude to Warren  during the debates.

      •  Which group people belong to is very important (2+ / 0-)

        to groupists.  They consider it very unfair that the traditional groups into which they segregate people are considered politically incorrect.  
        Segregation is necessarily exclusive.  When some quantities are put into one group, the others are left out. It's inevitable. What's not inevitable is that the exclusion or inclusion be antagonistic. However, when people who have to have things in separate groups are told they can't, they get irate. It may be juvenile. But, think of children who have to have the food on their plate in separate spaces, segregated from each other, not touching and certainly not mixed together.  They get upset when those peculiarities aren't honored.  And, in reaction, they are likely to become even more insistent on segregating stuff. And irate.
        Segregating is instinctive behavior; as is accummulating and hoarding and discarding stuff at random. People who don't think about what they do get irate when they are forced to.
        That's why many of them don't like school.

    •  He conceded it didn't effect her hiring (6+ / 0-)

      So really what was the point of it all Snotty?  No one from anyway has said it impacted her hiring. But you insist on looking at her employment application while you refuse to release your client list. Why? Did you work with crooked mortgage companies? The reality is you were offended that she "checked the box" because "look at her." Scott Brown, just another bigoted Bozo in a barn jacket driving a pick-up. Quelle Surprise!
