For those who have not kept up with events political in the USA there is much hilarious amusement going begging.
It seems the Democrats now 'evolve' policy and their CVs as the political mood or, more importantly, the need for money and prestige ebbs and flows.
The most spectacular such event has been the unmasking of a fake, blue eyed, blond Cherokee Harvard law professor, one Elizabeth Warren
She looks like getting laughed out of contention before the election begins in which she seeks to unseat Republican senator Scott Brown in the state of Massachusetts.
Yep, that's the same Scot Brown who nicked the previously Democrat held seat of the Chappaquiddick killer Ted Kennedy
Turns out madame didn't do so well in school, so in order to gain entry to Harvard she needed a little help. In endemically racist America, if you can show you are of indigenous heritage you can get in on a special quota in which academic ability matters less than who your great great grand mammy was. If you're an Injun, you're in. Ms Warren laid claim to Cherokee ancestry and was accepted. The rest is now history and she is today an Adjunct Law Professor at Harvard, which institution proudly proclaims her as its sole indigenous faculty member.
Trouble is, there's no documentary proof of her ancestry and when push came to shove, it appears her real ancestors were the white folks who stole the Cherokee land and drove the unfortunate natives on a forced march to a barren, far off reservation. Some 4,000 souls perished on the journey. When her claim to have a Cherokee great great grand mammy was found to be false, she pointed to her contributions to a Cherokee recipe book entitled 'Pow Wow Chow.' (I kid you not.) She submitted three recipes purporting to be good old Cherokee bush tucker.
Trouble is, someone found that the recipes had been pinched word for word from a flash New York restaurant of the 1930s.
Sounds a bit like another Harvard law professor, don't it?
The black arsed jack ass currently occupying the White House had a similar problem with his high school academic achievement - or lack thereof. - when he was a young buck making his way in academia. It seems he couldn't make the grade so he too resorted to the use of affirmative action. (Affirmative action is the practice of holding a number of places exclusively for hard done by minorities - e..g injuns, wogs, furriners and blacks.).
If he could just show that he was a foreigner, he'd get in under a special category and get a whole bunch of grant money to boot. Remarkably, his published biography and CV at that time stated he was born in Kenya and continued to assert this interesting fact right up until three months AFTER he launched his bid for the presidency. Incredibly, none of the media picked this up, yet it was readily available by way of Google search. Either he really was born in Kenya or he fraudulently gained access to affirmative action benefits. The media were all too busy chasing after dirt on Dubbya and later vetting Sarah Palin.
Well, there you go. No wonder the Prez won't release any details of his scholastic record or applications for admittance to Harvard because there, for the world to see, will be his own signed off affirmation that he was born in Kenya. Of course it was important to be born in Kenya way back then but now he has evolved and has to be born in Hawaii. Hell, Jesus Christ himself managed to be born in only one place, Bethlehem.
Then you have the spectacle of Obama's 'evolving' policy on same sex marriage. Way back then, he was for it when he needed the support of the Chicago homosexual community to get into the state senate but then he evolved to an opposite viewpoint when he needed the votes of the black Christian community to get himself elected as president and now he needs the money from the wealthy poofters who support the Democrats so he's 'evolved' right back again.. Apparently he raised four million dollars within half an hour of his latest evolution.
Only trouble is, according to opinion polls, a whopping seventy six percent of likely voters think this time he is bullshitting.
American voters are starting to wake up that they've been well and truly had. They voted for Hope'n'Change and instead they got No Hope and Short Change as unemployment and petrol prices go through the roof.
