Like Elizabeth Warren, the President claims to be of Cherokee ancestry.  Like Elizabeth Warren, he has offered no proof.

Incidentally, what is it about claiming a connection to an American Indian tribe that makes even the most politically-correct among us completely uninhibited about trotting out what -- in any other context -- would be deemed a racist stereotype?  The President writes,

If asked, Toot [Obama’s maternal grandmother, Madelyne Payne Dunham] would turn her head in profile to show off her beaked nose, which, along with a pair of jet-black eyes, was offered as proof of Cherokee blood.


"Beaked" noses?  "Jet-black eyes"?  "High cheekbones"?  Really?
