    Of course you're going to attack the source (who wasn't Andrew Breitbart). The guy lays down his reasoning in the article. Do you have any better information to counter it? If so, please, let's see it.

    If not, then, well, your cop-out is exceedingly lame.

    I asked you to provide the federal law that you alluded to. Should I take your response as a punt, or as a fail?

    You know that the U.S. is not going to have a law addressing what the Cherokee nation ALREADY SPELLS OUT, so be honest and take the point at face value. Here's the deal.....if the Nation of Cherokee doesn't recognize her SHE AINT A CHEROKEE! Not that difficult of a concept.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    Really? So presumably you think LaMR's Wikipedia cop-out was exceedingly lame as well?

    As for the Breitbart article, I don't see anything particularly convincing in it. Why would Ms. Smith lie about being a Cherokee on her wedding certificate? Was she running for Senate?

    And so we come full circle. If the principle chief of the Cherokee Nation is considered by the Cherokee Nation to have sufficient Cherokee blood, then so does Warren.

    Thanks for playing, please insert another quarter and try again.

    Dude, stating an OPEN SOURCE website isn't the last word isn't a cop out it's reality. You certainly didn't provide anything else relevant, sure, you gave the Nation of Cherokee website stating why they made an exception for the chief, that is NOT a defense of Warren taking it upon herself to claim minority status to get ahead.

    wrong-the issue is her using a faux (and its not proven she has cherokee blood-it appears more likely she is the descendent of a Indian oppressor) status to get an advantage

    Yes, your bizarre fantasy surfaces again. Do you honestly think the Dems would pay someone to be this abrasive?

    Horse ****. Warren declared HERSELF to be of Cherokee descent, the nation made an exception which they are allowed to do. You do realize that the indian nations are independent right?
