For Cryin’ Out Loud!

Remember when John Kerry, running for president, tried to pass himself off as human by donning an Elmer Fudd suit and asking a store clerk, “Where kin I git me a huntin’ license?”

Well, here’s yet another Massachusetts senator thinking she can win the White House by talking down to normal people and pretending to be one of them: Elizabeth Warren, punctuating her New Year’s Eve announcement of her intended presidential candidacy with the immortal words, “I’m going to get me a beer.” And drinking it straight out of the bottle.

She also seems pleasantly surprised to find her husband under the same roof that night. Well, if I were married to Elizabeth Warren, she’d be surprised to find me there. Are they still taking sign-ups for the Foreign Legion?

Some people, when they catch Potomac Fever, lose all sense of who they are. They behave very oddly. And they’re absolutely sure their little act will fool you. “Golly, Billy Bob! Didju see that? She’s drinkin’ a beer! Why, she’s jist like us’uns!” Oh, please.

This is the bozo who for years passed herself off as a Native American, only to be unmasked by a DNA test that showed she was even less a Native American than Angela Merkel.

Really–is this the best we can do?
