Faux-Cohantas Elizabeth Warren Wrote an Injun Cookbook
If any conservative pretended to be an Indian, used those claims to get a job, preferential treatment, or make a profit by writing a racist cookbook called “Pow Wow Chow” that person would have to retire from politics in shame. Not so with Democrat Elizabeth Warren. She is not hounded out of politics by Democrats for claiming falsely to be 1/32nd Cherokee, who, by the way, never had “pow wows.”
Just in case the fine folks at All Things Cherokee have no sense of humor, my Pow Wow Chow review. twitpic.com/9m0aft

From the Boston Herald here:
Elizabeth Warren was touting her claim of Cherokee heritage as early as 1984, according to a cookbook titled “Pow Wow Chow” edited by her cousin that includes Warren’s recipes for a savory crab omelet and spicy barbecued beans.
The cookbook, edited by Warren’s cousin Candy Rowsey, is a compilation of “special recipes passed down through the Five Tribes families,” according to the introduction in a copy obtained by the Herald.
Warren, who has been under fire for claiming Indian lineage despite a lack of documentation, is identified as “Elizabeth Warren, Cherokee” under each of five recipes she contributes in the cookbook, published in 1984 by the Five Civilized Tribes Museum located in Muskogee. Warren is not listed as an official member of the Cherokee tribe and she has been unable thus far to document her claim of any Native American heritage.
She offered a recipe on herbed tomatoes, touting them as a “great accompaniment to a plain meat and potatoes meal!” She also included a crab with tomato mayonnaise dressing dish and a Mexican oatmeal soup that included oats, onions, tomatoes and chicken broth.
“The soup sounds weird, but everyone who tries it, loves it!” Warren wrote.
Those recipes sound craptastic! Not only is she a fake injun, she is a fake cook too.

Have you seen these laughably outrageous commercials on late night TV for quick cash loans from a “Native American” bank? They offer $5000 for 117% interest over 84 months. You pay back $40,000 for a $5000 loan. And just in case you aren’t sure the bitch is ripping you off like a true Injun would,…

Elizabeth Warren wants to be a Senator. But she has claimed for years that she is 1/32nd Native American, which would make her left tit an Indian, but the rest of the broad is white. Many surmise that her claims of Native American heritage was so she could take advantage of minority benefits, or be…

Adam Savage from MythBusters tweeted this awesome video. I would watch this as a TV show over any other reality series. Get right on that, CBS. Like This Post? Rate it and tell your friends! Click the Share button below.

The Cherokee nation is going to evict all black folk from their official registries because they aren’t Indians. But this is a violation of a treaty with the United States because slaves owned by Indians after the Civil War were taken to live on Cherokee lands. From Reuters here: The nation’s second-largest Indian tribe said…

Newsweek wrote about the original Earth Day in 1970 and compared it to a national rain dance. That of course, is preposterous, since only Indians did rain dances, and even then, the most famous Indian, “Iron Eyes” Cody, who starred in a commercial about litter, was a fake Indian. Indians don’t exist anymore. They rode…

I still havent seen Jim Cameron’s last enviro-nitwit Dances With Wolves from Sapce epic drama about smurfs, but I bet the second one will be even better! A bunch of people were pitching story ideas that continue on with the Navi equals Indians theme, and one of the ideas is that the Americans infect the…

So if you won’t be needing that Xbox and widescreen TV, just hand it over. According to this AP piece, simple-minded people are running around thinking that the Mayans somehow predicted the end of the world, because, you know, a barbaric clan of human-sacrificing stone-age people somehow just know this kind of stuff. From the…
