Brietbart Bites Warren

This is pretty obscure, but it goes to the issue of scientific integrity in the area of "scientific research".  Can your data be verified or should we just take your word for it, because you are a pretty face?  Here is the piece in question, which implicates Harvard Law Professor Elizabeth Warren.

And, the research was funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF), which suggests taxpayer money.

Is Immigration Lawyer Marisa DeFranco still about?

ZOMG! Liz Warren is not only a hoity toity, Ivy League, eggheaded elitists; she isn't a very good one at THAT!!!!

I realize that the GOPers are going to scrape the bottom of the barrel in their opposition research, but to hold Warren up against a credential that the GOPers normally flog is odd.

What, the only good Harvard elitist is a "bad" Harvard elitist?

As some who has read her book and took her advice, The Two Income Trap, she contradicts her own views blaming corporations for the middle class woes. When she wrote the book, she made women accountable for their own economic stability, now it is because GE doesn't pay enough taxes and I don't have free stuff from the government.

Sorry she's all bull... you're stuck with her and in November we all could be stuck with her.

And yeah, what she did was offensive to Native Americans/minorities. I know it doesn't matter, but Democrats would be all over it if a Republican pulled that off.

I also think it is ironic Warren attacks GE for not paying taxes, but want MSNBC (owned by GE) to cover a debate live on that channel.

Renee -- great points.. And if there's anyone who really doesn't think GE doesn't pay taxes, or didn't pay taxes in a certain year, I have a bridge I'd like to sell them..
