Congratulations to the US\’s first Cherokee Senator

Now, as if in a sequel, (Elizabeth) Warren will return to the U.S. capital having been remade into a senator herself just as Congress prepares its first revisions to the landmark Dodd-Frank Act enacted in the wake of the 2008 financial crisis.

Isn\’t it wonderful that the country has been able to entirely put racial quotas behind itself and deal with people purely on the basis of their heart and mind instead of skin colour or race?

  1. Warren, like Biden and Kennedy and many other Democratic Senators, is proof that you can rise to the top with a minimal level of talent, ability and common sense.

  2. So we’ve had Fauxahontas elected, Jesse Jackson Jr has been re-elected while in rehab, and Detroit has elected an 8-time felon.

    Why were the media not smashing them into the ground the whole campaign?

    Oh, cos they’re all D’s…

  3. Bystander: Democrats don’t have a monopoly on talentless hacks. Remember that PJ O’Rourke quote – “The founding fathers, in their wisdom, devised a method by which our republic can take one hundred of its most prominent numbskulls and keep them out of the private sector where they might do actual harm.”

  4. Absolutely. Another relevant PJ O’Rourke quote: “The Democrats are the party that says government will make you smarter, taller, richer, and remove the crabgrass on your lawn. Republicans are the party that says government doesn’t work, and then they get elected and prove it.” Only replace “get elected” with “campaign badly.”

  5. “is proof that you can rise to the top with a minimal level of talent, ability and common sense”

    Every day I’m just hoping nobody notices…. there’s a Talking Heads song about this
