Elizabeth Warren’s Native American Heritage “Correct In Mythical Terms”?

Mediaite reports a new twist on U.S. Senate wannabe Elizabeth Warren’s Indian giver lineage:

Post In The Hill Calls Elizabeth Warren’s Native American Heritage ‘Correct In Mythical Terms’

A post in The Hill from Monday heaps praise on Democratic Massachusetts Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren for her Native American heritage. But it is not her background in the traditional sense, but her upbringing in Oklahoma that qualifies her to be close to and reverential of Native American heritage. So, “Warren’s claim to be ‘part Indian’ is correct in mythical terms,” according to the post.

The piece in The Hill‘s “pundits blog” section of the website, by Bernie Quigley, claims it is common for those Americans who were raised in the Midwest “to claim Indian blood; that is, to wish it were there even if it isn’t.” Therefore, the debate over Warren’s true heritage is immaterial.

Uh-huh. Tell that to the Boston Herald.

As Howie Carr might say, sounds suspect on the paleface of it.

  1. So this comment wasn’t made by Warren, nor by anyone who works for her campaign, nor by anyone she even knows (for all I know) but we’ll use it to attack her anyway? Got it.
