    And just when I thought you had reached the limit to worthless hyperbole.

    It's one thing to disagree with the President's policies, but to say things like this...

    I seem to remember the clueless on the right calling themselves "teabaggers" until it was explained to them what the term meant in urban slang.

    Conservatives Debate: Is 'Teabagger' Their 'N-Word'?

    In the latest issue of National Review, Jay Nordlinger details the history of 'teabagging' and reports on the conservative debate about what to do about it. But it's not what you think -- no, really, it's not what you think.
    The first big day for this movement was Tax Day, April 15. And organizers had a gimmick. They asked people to send a tea bag to the Oval Office. One of the exhortations was "Tea Bag the Fools in D.C." A protester was spotted with a sign saying, "Tea Bag the Liberal Dems Before They Tea Bag You." So, conservatives started it: started with this terminology. But others ran with it and ran with it.
    “And I have no doubt that every new example will succeed, as every past one has done, in shewing that religion & Govt will both exist in greater purity, the less they are mixed together.”
    ~ James Madison, letter to Edward Livingston, July 10, 1822

    To get back on topic, does anyone think it's at all relevant that Elizabeth Warren has exactly the same amount of Cherokee blood as THE CHIEF OF THE CHEROKEE NATION?
    "The necessaries of life occasion the great expense of the poor. They find it difficult to get food, and the greater part of their little revenue is spent in getting it. The luxuries and vanities of life occasion the principal expense of the rich, and a magnificent house embellishes and sets off to the best advantage all the other luxuries and vanities which they possess. ... It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion."

    Massachusetts Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren (D) did not rely upon affirmative action to get teaching work at universities around the country, documents obtained by several media outlets revealed on Thursday.

    In separate reports, The Associated Press and The Boston Globe both noted that Warren did not claim minority status at the University of Texas, where she taught law before moving to Harvard, writing on a personnel form that she identified as “White.” She also declined to apply to Rutgers Law School under a minority student program. ...

    So another premature, wrong republican attack. And they fade away like monkeys in the mist when confronted with the truth....

    There's not much to say. Wikipedia is an open source library, anyone can contribute so the information may or may not be accurate. Your source is flawed and until you provide something with substance there isn't really anything to discuss.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.
