I’m not sure why this Elizabeth Warren DNA test thing dominated the news cycle yesterday, .. I guess for the same reason I’m writing about it right now. If she was trying to demonstrate that Donald Trump is a liar who does not keep his word.. I suppose I could understand that given how much shit he talks.. but.. well, we already knew that.
The thing to me is it only demonstrated she can be baited into playing his game, and the only way to win that game is not to play.
I like Warren. I like her story. Overall I really like her politics. I think she does a really good job of having to work with the goddamn D party while also being relatively outspoken about the important stuff. She’s doing a pretty good job at making the best of her recognition and fighting these bastards. I think she’d make a good president. I also think if she was Hilary Clinton’s running mate in ’16, I would not be writing any of this.
I’m just saying, in a political career where she’s done a lot of good, let’s not let this particular misstep define her. Yes. She should have known better, but what can I say, everybody is nuts right now.
