[Horribly Un-PC Title Redacted]*

I'm sorry. I am only human. I couldn't resist this little bit of schadenfreude:

Mass. Sen.-elect Warren making year-end debt pitch
BOSTON —Massachusetts Sen.-elect Elizabeth Warren is making an end-of-the-year pitch to help retire her campaign debt.
Warren's chief of staff, Mindy Myers, sent an email to the Democrat's supporters saying the campaign has set a goal of raising another $200,000 by midnight Dec. 31.
Gee, Taxagawea, couldn't you just teach another class at Harvard to cover that tab? Honestly, I'm frightened that after spending some $42 million - with the complete help of the local and national media - that she eked out a win over a lightweight like Brown and still didn't have enough to pay her bills. Another report has the Warren campaign blaming the shortfall on coffee and pizza bought for campaign workers.
While I do have to admit to some sweet, sweet schadenfreude over Tin Lizzy's campaign being broke, it scares the living bejeezus out of me that this woman can't even run a political campaign without running out of money. Now she's going to be a Senator, where she can help the entire country run out of money. It's a tidy little metaphor for the Democratic party, really: You promise the people who work for you something, and don't care whether you can actually, you know, pay for it. We'll worry about that later.

No one ever stops to think what happens when "later" comes...

That is all.

*Because I know you are curious, the original title was planned as "Fauxcahontas Need Heap Plenty Wampum"...

Aren't there any little people she could sell out in court? I seem to recall she was good at that, too.

Why doesn't she just appeal to the rich people of Wall Street?

Oh yeah. Forgot about that...

Oh yeah, THIS bodes real well for us... NOT... sigh

So, her strength is spending more than her income, so that is good preparation for the Senate?

Is she emulating Blanche DuBois of "Streetcar Named Desire", depending on the kindness of strangers?

Like your original title. She can join our Senator, Patty Murray up in the "Stupidest People in the Senate" seats.

Typical of politicians she's really good at spending money she doesn't have.

The people who voted for Liarwatha are going to get exactly what they deserve.

Sadly so are the ones that didn't vote for her.

Gotta say that your redacted title made me snort rum and coke. Shoulda kept it!
