Many if not most of us have heard of Ms. Warren's now debunked claims to Cherokee heritage and employment thereof during her academic career.

It now appears that the integrity of her scholarship leaves a lot to be desired as well, to put it mildly:
QUOTE
...
... Claiming to be an "authority" on bankruptcy law, Warren has written papers and books wildly inflating the role medical bills play in personal bankruptcies.

A Northwestern University peer review of her 2005 paper on the subject, for example, ripped it apart, arguing "the methods were so poor they gave cover to those who want to dismiss the problems of the uninsured they can say the only paper out there uses a suspect method."
...
ABC News suggested she was exercising a hidden agenda to promote a government-run health system. Sure enough, President Obama in 2009 seized on her findings to argue for socialized medicine: "The cost of health care now causes a bankruptcy in America every 30 seconds."
...
In 2010, as Obama was floating Warren's name as someone to run his new Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, "The Atlantic" magazine reviewed her academic work and found a disturbing "pattern" of using bogus metrics to inflate the case for left-wing causes. "Deeply, deeply flawed," it said of her research. "This isn't Harvard (Law) caliber material not even Harvard undergraduate."

Ms. Warren is currently running for the office of U.S. Senator from Massachussetts, hoping to unseat Republican Scott Brown.

Questions:

1. Do you think these revelations (both regarding her heritage and the integrity of her scholarship) will cause her to lose the election? Why or why not?

2. Do you think these revelations (both regarding her heritage and the integrity of her scholarship) should cause her to lose the election? Why or why not?

My main thought was Brown needed to get his eyes checked. Ms Warren does not look like a pure white woman. The Indian contribution to her face appears quite obvious. Apparently enough voters agreed with me.


What is a "pure" White woman? ermm.gif

As distinguished from being part noncaucasian, Indian in this case, but go ahead and explore the offensive possibilities. sleeping.gif


My, but aren't we touchy?

I have never heard of human beings described as if they were comparable to bodies of water. From your loaded descriptor it isn't preposterous to assume if Elizabeth Warren isn't a "pure" White woman because of her mixed racial heritage, that must then mean she is unpure? unsure.gif

One of us is weird and I don't think it's me. ph34r.gif

I would suggest that rather than continue with pointless racism, we close this thread!


Oh, I agree because the question as originally posed has been totally and thoroughly answered by the voters, so this is a settled issue. dry.gif

But if the Mods and Admins see a reason for this thread to stay open, that's their call.
