    How'd that work out?

    Cher was pretty smoking back in the day, eh?

    Did anyone in this thread mention that the situation is even worse now -- the "pow wow chow" book is partially plagiarized. When it rains, it pours, especially if you do a rain dance Miss warren.

    No one could wear a headdress like Cher.

    So, predictably, this whole charade seems to have had zero impact on the race....

    WASHINGTON -- Sen. Scott Brown and his Democratic challenger are nearly tied in the race for a Massachusetts Senate seat, according to a poll released Wednesday night. This new result suggests that relentlessly negative news coverage over allegations that Warren embellished her biography have had little impact on a race that has remained deadlocked for months.

    The new poll, conducted by the Suffolk University Political Research Center and sponsored by Boston television station 7News, gave Brown a one percentage point edge over Warren (48 percent to 47 percent), with just 5 percent undecided. The survey of 600 likely voters in Massachusetts was conducted from May 20 to 22.

    The new results are a close match to two surveys conducted by other organizations in early May. Warren and Brown were exactly tied in both an automated Rasmussen Reports poll (with 45 percent each) and an internal poll paid for by the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee (46 percent each). But polls by other organizations have produced slightly different estimates of where the candidates stand for months.

    Warren's standing on the latest Suffolk University poll represents an improvement from the previous survey in early February that gave Brown a nine percentage point lead (49 percent to 40 percent).

    No doubt the local Cherokee vote has swung in her favor, her being a squaw and all.

    Probably. In the end she's going to scalp Brown.
