@"Martin Chuzzlewit" Elizabeth Warren claims to be 1/16 Cherokee...which she is. Is this all you can come up with? LOL!

This is one of the most bizarre segments ever? Are Brian and his guest next going to analyze what cereal Mitt eats? Even Mitt can't give a straight answer on that.

Why is your guest calling this a pro-life issue? Forced abortion is not pro-choice, it's an issue the pro-choice side is just as concerned about as lack of access to abortion.

Uh...what? Yes, I'm confused too, because the first guest is unintelligible.

Yawn.....another poorly disguised, tangential attack on Romney.

How about a correlative segment on Obama and his relationship with the radical left ..... like the video address he made to CODE PINK in January 2008 (which I have personally seen) and which the Obama mainstream media artfully ignored and has never discussed?

Hey, what about the new ELIZABETH WARREN SCANDAL?????

It appears that the new “it girl” Massachusetts Senate candidate used an affirmative action claim as a “Native American” to advance to where she is today. Warren quietly used the fact that one of her 16 great great great grandparents was listed as Cherokee in an 1894 marriage certificate. Though she denies this as her intention, Harvard Law School touted her as a minority hire, says the Boston Herald…..after which she stopped using this claim.

Wow, that must sure thrill some young woman who actually is a member of a tribe and attended a Native American school on a reservation to know that Elizabeth Warren, who grew up as a rich white girl (well, 15/16ths), took the slot reserved for her.

Gosh, lefties sure are funny………and dishonest.
