    This thread is about grasping at straws. Desperation could not be more evident.
    “No men are anywhere, and I’m allowed to go in, because I’m the owner of the pageant and therefore I’m inspecting it,” Trump said... “‘Is everyone OK’? You know, they’re standing there with no clothes. ‘Is everybody OK?’ And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.”

    Describing yourself as a "woman of color" based on family legend that your great-great-great-great grandmother may have been Indian seems like the desperation of someone who can't own up to the 31/32 who were white. Either she believes that there is something wrong with being white, that, or as some suggest, she is an opportunist who was trying to play the a system of preferential treatment for people of color.

    Except she didn't. She never used it to get into a school or to get a job. It's sounds like its something she mentioned to the school after the fact and the school tried to take advantage of it.

    It's another silly republican swift boat attack being used because Warren is obviously much better qualified and is a heavy weight, while Brown is a total lightweight.
    "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."

    Where are you getting that information from? If she got no benefit why bother doing it?

    Brown, Military Reserve Officer, who served in the State Legislature, and won dead-Kennedy's seat in MA. is a "lightweight".

    While Liz Warren, who has never been elected to anything, lied about her heritage so as to be Injun, and then plagierized "Pow Wow Chow", is a heavyweight .... ROFLMAO.

    She checked the box which indicated she was a native American. She is a disingenuous ditz who deserves derision. Again, is liberal racial identity so fragile and so guilt-ridden, or do liberals believe there something so inherently wrong with being white as to justify that degree of misrepresentation? Or perhaps she was looking for people like her for a good old-fashioned Cherokee pow wow?
