|It was just a little one.|
So Warren's claim to be "part Indian" is correct in mythical terms. Every old-school white Oklahoman is in this regard even if this is nominally not true. But it is not a lie to want to be Indian and to imagine your ancestors were.When Ms. Warren applied for the position at Harvard Law, did she say to them that she wished to be a Native American, or did she in fact state she was a Native American?
Did Bernie ever wish himself to be a fireman or an astronaut?
If Bernie had to undergo an operation, would he find it understandable and excusable to he discover the person that did the operation always wished to be a surgeon, though in fact they were not?
Those nominal flasehoods are a bummer sometimes.
It's as if Mr. Quigley is divorced from the environment in which Ms. Warren made this claim. She was promoted by the university as an example of diversity (in outward appearance and classification only). She was likely hired for this reason. For Warren to claim she is Native American and Quigley to excuse it as wishful thinking on her part is to be naive in the extreme. Wishful thinking on Quigley's part, certainly, but not on the part of Ms. Warren. The very notion is laughable, and people like Quigley should be laughed at, and laughed at heartily.
Go ahead. That's pretty much what I do.
