As entertaining as it is watching Scott Brown trip over shoe laces tied together by his own staff (marinating in the Obamacare he claimed to oppose), and reading Margery Eagan — Marjorie Eagan! — assert that Mitt Romney’s “Seamus Moment” was definitional, nothing compares to Fox wannabe The Herald’s routed assertion that Elizabeth Warren lied about her Native American heritage.
Warren is, of course, part Cherokee, according to reporter Hillary Chabot.
“Warren’s Great, Great, Great Escape,” the newspaper trumpeted today, elevating professor Warren to an amalgam of the forces that made America great: Steve McQueen, James Garner, and Charles Bronson.
Of course, if Warren represents our hero GIs shuttling back and forth on ingenious trolleys as they burrow their way out of a Nazi POW camp, one hesitates to imagine what the Herald thinks is the best metaphor for her opponent.
