As I mentioned in our Live Blog the other day, almost lost in the news of the Democrat meltdown in Virginia, and the success of the president’s State of the Union speech in front the Harridan Handmaiden’s Caucus and its denture-sucking leader, Maerose Prizzi, was this astonishing and richly satisfying end of the national political career of that unctuous phony, Elizabeth Warren of Oklahoma, Massachusetts, but not the Cherokee Nation:

Elizabeth Warren’s whole embarrassingly improbable account of her claims to Native American ancestry has just fallen completely apart. It’s now indisputable that she’s been lying all along. The Washington Post has uncovered her 1986 Texas State Bar registration card, which Warren personally filled out and signed, where she listed her race as “American Indian.” And, she now admits, there may be other such documents out there.

Funny: Back in 2012, when news first hit that Warren had been recorded as an American Indian in various faculty directories, she insisted she was unaware of the listing and hadn’t asked for it. The implication was that someone else had filed the listing without her knowledge. This, even as she cited family lore of Native American ancestors.

In other words, she’s been making the claim to minority status for well over three decades. And while she insists she “never got any benefits from it anywhere” (citing as proof an article in the Warren-friendly Boston Globe), what other possible motive could she have had?

We’ve always known her motive: self-advancement and self-enrichment. Perhaps, like every other lunatic Democrat, she began to believe the party-line nonsense that race, ethnicity, and sex were simply social constructs, and subject to the whim of the individual. Perhaps, as a member of the Party of Science, she thought that family lore and jokes from her pee-paw about “high cheekbones” were dispositive. Or perhaps she’s just a fraud; which conclusion would Occam’s Razor dictate?

Will she actually dare to formally announce her candidacy for president now? No one with any sense of shame could possibly do so, but then again, she is a Democrat.
