Whoever is responsible for getting Elizabeth Warren all this publicity should think about becoming a sports agent.
Of course, we all know that it's not one person behind this rising star- no it's, an entire party. For the
first time since I started getting into politics, I'm starting to see the Democratic hype machine head into top gear. And it reminds me of another one of my passions- football. That is, watching football. I wouldn't want to get hurt.
Every year or so, one college player gets hyped up and crowned as the next big thing- the next Brady, Manning, or Cutler (just wait and see!) For the last few years, it's been Andrew Luck of Stanford, a senior fellow at the Hoover Institute. Luck will be, barring something strange occurring, the first overall pick in next year's draft. He'll be gift-wrapped and shipped off to the highest bidder- err, rather, the worst team.
Speaking of the "worst team," I hear the Democrats are looking for a new franchise quarterback. That's right, I'm afraid the last one didn't pan out. He was a bit of a hot-head (he's an ideologue), his fundamentals were lacking (he rejects the Constitution), and plus, he came into a bad situation in the first place (blame Bush.) So now the Donkeys are starting to scout... Elizabeth Warren.
Just look at the raw talent behind this one, guys! She's a Harvard law professor. Forget about academia for a second- look at her IMDB page! She's been recognized by Hall of Famers like Jon Stewart, Bill Maher, and even Michael Moore. I wonder how fast she runs the 40 yard dash.
I hate to break it to you liberals- you'll never get a franchise quarterback. And you've never had one. But I shouldn't say that- you're in the honeymoon stage of this marriage. Warren is a big time success story, having gone through all of the liberal farm leagues. First it's the Ivy League, and then it's the recognition on the Daily Kos. Eventually you move up from your boring day job to Michael Moore documentaries- now there's a gig. After that, you end up on HBO, and next thing you know, you're on the top- appearing on Comedy Central next to Jon Stewart- if that is his real name. It isn't.
I'd advise you to Google "scared of Elizabeth Warren." You'll find at least a page full of relevant results- by relevant, I mean lefties claiming that we're "scared of Elizabeth Warren." The fear they're describing should be differentiated from what we normally mean. The context they put it in is the fear an opposing safety gets while waiting for Andrew Luck to get the snap. It's safe to say that an opposing defense would be "scared of Andrew Luck."
But statism scares me in a different way. The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act being ruled constitutional- that scares me. Obama getting another term scares me. Someone like, yes, Elizabeth Warren becoming President scares me. But is there anything intrinsically different about Warren that makes her a special monster? No.
