[QUOTE]In Response to Re: Law review article on diversity: "Harvard Law School hired its first woman of color, Elizabeth Warren, in 1995." : It's not about the lie, it's about the reaction. A conservative steps in it, fellow conservatives take him (or her) out. Mark Foley, for example. Progressives step in it, they double down their support, Bill Clinton, Anthony Weiner, and now Fauxahuantus. At some point even progressives need to stare reality in the face here, Lizzie Warren lied to advance her personal agenda, got caught, and won't correct the record. Progressives, other Democrats STILL back her, and dismiss the seriousness of the issue. This issue, though we jest about it, is as serious as a heart attack.

I do not know what to say. I was all set to work on the Warren campaign, but personal issues have prevented me from doing any political work. Ordinarily I would know a lot more of what was really happening inside the party...not just what is made public.
There still seems to be factual evidence that Warren is indeed part native American. I wish the Democrats had had a primary and this had come out and been dealt with but that was not the case.
Warren and her campaign obviously could have handled this issue better. It seems like they were not ready at all for it. And now it still has legs.
The problem with that is she is the candidate. The issues need to be discussed. Right now Brown is getting a pass as this drags out.
A 6 year senate seat cannot be all about this. That is on its face ridiculous. I do not know if the Warren campaign has a plan about how to go from here. I wish I did.
Got to go. Medical appointment.
