Without even clickin on the link, I think I know what this is about.

 

A woman, seizing on the well-intentioned but gross injustice of Affirmative Action, to further her career.

 

I’m mortified, at a loss for adjectives.

 

Her degrees should be rescinded.

 

The best way to not discriminate is to not discriminate.

But Warren was not done making a mockery of a system she seems to have exploited, and in so doing risked discrediting. To call her on these shenanigans, she explained, is sexist.

how many times do you see some politician get criticized for doing something stupid or corrupt and when you call them on it, they revert to calling the accuser racist, sexist, or whatever attempts to paint themselves as the victim. 

as an example, cynthia mckinney was one of the dumbest, racist people in all of politics.  yet when you criticize her, you're the bad guy because she's just a strong black women speaking her mind.  apparently, it's ok to be a moron racist if you're just a strong [whatever minority]  "speaking your mind"

government has become such a money/power grab that it attracts the worst people with a life history of feeling entitled to everything and we see how they fight to protect themselves.

That women (Warren) , IMO, is a phoney.

 

Blacks were treated very cruelly and wrongly in the past.

 

I don’t think that should exempt African-Americans of today from criticism.

 

Especially in the case of Cynthia McKinney, who, IMO, deserves it.

This is white flag surrendering the fact that they have nothing to offer so they simply bash liberals...

telling people about liberals is as tired as black comics telling to the difference between white people and black people...

Not shocking that the left does not want to reply to this. Warren is a huge proponent of banking "regulation", she was a champion of the populist left leaning ideology that postulated that the only way to end Banking and corporate corruption was to instill more rules from the govt. (that would be written by the banks and corporations),  she is a huge Trojan horse of a human being.  Definitely glad when phonies get exposed. 

But to pretend that Scott Brown is any champion of conservative ideals is pretty laughable.

http://www.bostonherald.com/news/politics/view/20120507harvard_warren_got_job_only_on_merits_as_teacher/srvc=home&position=recent

A Harvard Law School professor and former official in Ronald Reagan’s administration said Monday that any suggestion that Democratic Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren enjoyed an affirmative action advantage in her hiring as a full professor is "false" and "complete nonsense."

Harvard Law School professor Charles Fried, who served as U.S. Solicitor General under President Reagan, said Warren was recruited to be a tenured professor because she was pre-eminent in the fields of bankruptcy and commercial law. Fried, a member of the appointments committee that reviewed Warren, said the subject of her Native American ancestry was never mentioned.

What a surprise lies lies lies. Republicans bitching about a fake controversy and brushing off the real ones as fake and nonsense. 

Gotcha politics the right gets busted more than the left does

And incidentally she is 1/32 Cherokee -- the same proportion as the current head of the tribe.

If she didn't disclose her native american heritage, righties would have accused her of being ashamed and trying to cover it up.

a liberals way of thinking

ban selling 16.9 Poland Springs water bottles in stores because the plastic is bad for the environment and kills animals yet soda and gatorade and all other drinks of the same 16.9 size are OK to sell.

Concord, Ma


They just passed a town tax too, the first in the country.
