Liz is Out

 

Senator Warren has called it quits. She emerged from her multimillion-dollar home (without a beer in hand) to announce that she has accepted that America doesn’t want her to be president. Beyond the fact that she has plans that would eventually bankrupt all of us, she was too ready to embellish, fabricate, and outright lie about her own biography. And while a candidate dissembling isn’t rare, she was taking it to a higher level.

She got her start in law and in academia claiming victimhood that she doesn’t deserve. She still claims she was let go from a teaching job for being “visibly pregnant” when school board records flatly refute the story. Oh, and before she entered electoral politics, she refuted it herself on video. She told this same false story at her last debate appearance only last week. Of course, no other candidate or any member of the media challenged her.

She lied about sending her son to a private school to preserve her teachers’ union credibility. I have to wonder how her mind works in that her lies are so easily found to be false. I do think that her followers just want it to be true so badly that they completely suspend disbelief.

The one story that reveals her personality (and also that of the authoritarian left) is the story she proudly tells of the poor student down to her last six bucks who gives three of them to Liz. She tells it, she thinks, to prove the importance of her campaign to America’s kids. The subtext is that Liz knows better how to spend three of the student’s last six bucks. By the way, Warren is estimated to be worth around $12 million.

I would hope that any thinking, compassionate human being would say “Keep your cash, you need it more than I do.” Further, any smart politician would say “Look, can I buy you lunch? Come with me, we’re heading for a diner. Let’s sit down and talk about your plans.” That would go over a bit better than “Thanks for the three bucks, I gotta go. Bye.”

In any case, America said to Liz today “I gotta go. Bye.”

    I’m glad to hear this.

    What would be worse for the US economy?  Coronavirus or Liz?

    For a minute there, I thought “Liz is out” meant she was outing herself as bicurious genderfluid, or something.

    No, that would be her SecEducation.

    Now, I’m no expert on this…but have you ever noticed Elizabeth Warren’s high cheekbones? I don’t know if anyone’s ever mentioned this…but she looks like she might be part Cherokee.

    Every time I heard her speak a sentence, I always thought the next sentence would be, “And your little dog Toto too!”

    I agree 100%. I remember when Hillary was running against Obama I first realized why I could have never made it in politics. She had a campaign event where a teen girl and her 12 year old brother made their donations – the girl gave all the money she’d made babysitting over a summer, the boy gave money he made selling his bike. Hillary was totally oblivious to any uncomfortable aspects of her taking this money to pay Mark Penn $4 million to run the campaign.

    It has amazed me since I first read about her.  She lies and lies about everything.  What still has me stumped is why she got the dna test done.  Maybe she believed her own BS.

    I’m pretty sure that President Trump trolled her into doing the test.

    There’s a really funny fact check here about Trump’s claims about Pocahontas.  The most amusing part is their serious criticism — concluding that “his logic is faulty” — regarding Trump’s claim to have more Native American blood than Warren.  Here’s what he said:

    But how do you lose a debate where you say as an example — no, we can’t use Pocahontas anymore. She’s got no Indian blood. We can’t use the name. He says call her Pocahontas. I can’t do it. She doesn’t have any Indian blood. I have more than she does, and I have none. Right? I have none, but it’s more than her.

    These fact-check idiots actually took that last part seriously.  “His logic is faulty” because he can’t possibly have more Indian blood than Warren, since he admitted that he had none.

    It does strike me as odd that somehow Pres Trump is often accused of being disrespectful by calling EW “Pocahontas “.  I would think that it is an order of magnitude more disrespectful to have falsely claimed Cherokee heritage for economic or career advantage.
    Also, one shows no respect at all to any “person of color” when your career most likely displaced a real POC candidate for these elite faculty positions.  I haven’t yet heard any apology for that.  I won’t be holding my breath. 

    (Of course, whether institutions should even be keeping this score should be the subject of another post . . .)

    Democrats are completely ridiculous with their double standards. Bernie always talks about how he wants a woman president, why doesn’t he just drop out and endorse Warren? The two are identical, Bernie wouldn’t be losing any of his policies. That’s Democrats in a nutshell, everyone has to adhere to their standards, except themselves.
