Off the Rez

The spectacle of Massachusetts Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren explaining and then explaining away her American Indian heritage is amusing enough.  But I couldn't help but chuckle even more when she answered the query about why she had marked "minority" in law directories for nearly ten years with this:
 “I listed myself in the directory in the hopes that it might mean that I would be invited to a luncheon, a group, something that might happen with people who are like I am.”
Point taken.  I understand it can get pretty lonely being a hyper-liberal feminist at Harvard.
