Elizabeth Warren is not a Native American — she’s just a Plagiarist. Warren touted both an 1894 marriage-license with an imaginary check-box and an obscure 1984 Indian cookbook, Pow Wow Chow as proof of her tribal origins. “Pow Wow Chow,” is a compilation of recipes supposed to have been passed down through the Five Tribes families. Five recipes were submitted by “Elizabeth Warren — Cherokee.” At least two of these were plagiarized — lifted verbatim from The New York Times and developed by Pierre Franey, chef at Le Pavillon, a center of Manhattan haute cuisine.

It is no surprise to me that the majority of people of MA will accept a poseur and a liar. I mean, look at the hero worship of the Kennedy clan with no regard as to whether each member was worthy of any such adoration. The selection of Barney Frank and the support of his behavior is beyond logic.

As a born and raised MA citizen, but , long gone to getaway from it, I would never go back. I will go to my grave failing to understand the emotional, unthinking choices of the majority of the people I knew there, including my own family.

I question if any one of them, in spite of very high intellect, ever weighed any issue or candidate's true skills and platform without first wrapping some emotional reason around it.

--how people fawned over Tip O'Neil. I saw the game played there and Chicago has nothing over Boston.

Yet, I loved those folks and I still do. The same unthinking, emotional choices they gave to their politicians, they gave to their friends. The same loyalty, etal.--- but loyalty is one of the greatest qualities of a person and blind loyalty is one of the greatest traps.

Tomorrow the people of Massachusetts will cast their ballots in perhaps the most important and consequential Senate race of this election cycle. For more than two years, incumbent Senator Scott Brown (who won a special election in January 2010 to serve out the late Edward M. Kennedy’s ninth term in the upper chamber) has unquestionably served the Commonwealth both ably and faithfully. In fact, at a time of increased polarization and gridlock in Washington, Scott Brown has been one of only a handful of lawmakers genuinely committed to working with both political parties to move the country forward.
