RUSH: We have some Elizabeth Warren news, and we are going to go back to the Grooveyard of Forgotten Favorites and pick out a tune as our Elizabeth Warren Update Theme. Picture Cher as an Indian squaw on horseback.
CHER: (singing) My father married a pure Cherokee. My mother's people were ashamed of me. The Indians said that I was white by law. The White Man always called me "Indian Squaw." "Half Breed," that's all I ever heard.
RUSH: "One-thirty-second breed," actually.
CHER: "Half Breed," how I learned to hate the word. "Half Breed, she's no good," they warned. Both sides were against me since the day I was born.
RUSH: Quick, Snerdley, what year is this? "Half Breed" by Cher, what year?
CHER: We never settled, went from town to town.
CHER: When you're not welcome, you don't hang around.
RUSH: Not '67, '73.
CHER: The other children always laughed at me, "Give her a feather. She's a Cherokee."
RUSH: Number-one song here!
CHER: "Half Breed," that's all I ever heard. "Half Breed," how I learned to hate the word. "Half Breed, she's no good," they warned. Both sides were against me since the day I was born.
RUSH: That's our Elizabeth Warren Update Theme here at the EIB Network on the Rush Limbaugh program.
CHER: We weren't accepted and I felt ashamed. Nineteen, I left them, tell me who's to blame? My life since then has been from man to man. But I can't run away from what I am.
RUSH: That's Cher singing with high cheekbones.
CHER: "Half Breed," that's all I ever heard. "Half Breed," how I learned to hate the word. "Half Breed, she's no good," they warned. (fades out)
RUSH: Doot-dee-doot-dee-doo. That's Cher and "Half Breed," not to be confused with "Gypsies, Tramps, and Thieves," which was of the same genre. And that's our Elizabeth Warren Update Theme. Cher did have high cheekbones, and that was a number-one song in this country in 1973. It's now serving as our Elizabeth Warren Update Theme Song. Let's get to it. By the way, I heard from a friend of mine in Boston. I think, Snerdley, you asked me yesterday or the day before when she announced that she's one-thirty-second Indian, Cherokee, "Are they laughing at her up there?"
I said, "I don't know. I mean, it's Boston. Affirmative action reigns supreme; it's Harvard." I have a friend in Boston who says they are laughing at her. His note to me (and I don't think this is gonna happen) said, "She's gonna be gone in a week. They'll get her off the ballot in a week. She's turning into a full-fledged laughingstock. I mean, genealogy companies are having to cover for her and now Harvard is being brought into this.
"Did they know that she was one-thirty-second Cherokee or not, and if they did, why did they go along with it?" But from what I'm told, she is a laughingstock. But that's just one anecdotal story. I haven't seen it anywhere else and it's hard to believe, but that's what I was told. So yesterday in Boston on WBZ-TV Eyeball News, the candidate, Elizabeth Warren, had this to say about Senator Scott Brown, whose seat she seeks.
WARREN: Scott Brown has been named by Forbes magazine as one of Wall Street's favorite Senators. That's not an award I'm likely to get. Every time Scott Brown protects the millionaires and the billionaires, that's more that has to get picked up by America's working families.
RUSH: Yesterday in Boston at Bunker Hill Community College, Scott Brown delivered a speech on bipartisanship entitled, "Americans First."
BROWN: A few people told me, "You know, it wouldn't probably be a good idea, Scott, to go down to the White House and be seen with the president signing those bills." And I'm like, you know, "Why? It was a shared accomplishment that we all did, that we all had a part in to actually make a difference and move our country forward."
RUSH: Scott Brown is moving to the center here. Scott Brown moving to the center. Look, it's Boston. There are a lot of people disappointed to hear him speak this way, but she's imploding. I mean, politically it's a smart move. She's imploding and he's moving to the center. He knows who the electorate is there. Remember what got him elected? It's not on the ballot this time. Remember what it was that got him elected? It was one thing. He was going to be the vote that would prevent the Democrats in the Senate from passing Obamacare.
You can talk about a bunch of other issues, but that was it. That was why he was elected, and it was remarkable 'cause it was Boston, Ted Kennedy's seat. It's Massachusetts. You figure if anyplace in this country is blue enough to go along with Obamacare, it would be there. And that was all the evidence a lot of people needed to know just how opposed the whole country was to Obamacare. Well, now that's not on the ballot, and now he's gotta deal with those voters on other issues. So his opponent is imploding (with high cheekbones that "all" Indians have, she says). She one-thirty-second Cherokee squaw.
Well, here. Grab sound bite number five.
If people didn't hear this and think I'm making it up, then here. This Elizabeth Warren Wednesday in Braintree, Massachusetts.
WARREN: My Aunt Bee has walked by that picture at least a thousand times, remarked that he -- that her father, my papaw -- had high cheekbones, like all of the Indians do! Because that's how she saw it, and she said, "And your mother got those same great cheekbones and I didn't." She thought this was the bad deal she had gotten in life.
RUSH: Wow. So "high cheekbones, like all of the Indians do." That's a great liberal, Elizabeth Warren, engaging in obvious bigotry: All Indians have high cheekbones. And then somebody in her family, her life was destroyed the moment it was discovered she didn't have high cheekbones. Once it was discovered that she had no high cheekbones, that was it for her. She had no chance. So, anyway, Scott Brown is moving to the center here in the face of Warren's implosion.
RUSH: I was looking here, and there's something else about Elizabeth Warren. It's a Boston Herald story. I just got it. "Elizabeth Warren Brings No Peace to Dem[ocrat]s -- Elizabeth Warren’s stumbling efforts to douse the firestorm surrounding her claims of being a Native American minority have raised concerns among local and national Democrats who are questioning her campaign’s competence. 'There’s nobody watching this that doesn’t think she’s in big trouble,' one well-known Massachusetts Democrat said."
I guess this is a confirmation from my buddy there that they're laughing at her. Grab the song. We have a minute and a half here. Let's play a little bit of our Elizabeth Warren Update Theme Song today just to take us into the break. Let's hit this again here because, folks, this pretty much says it all. Elizabeth Warren is being laughed at now. Democrats are in panic in Massachusetts over her claim that she is essentially what this song says.
(playing "Half Breed" by Cher)
RUSH: She's a brilliant liberal, don't forget. She teaches at Harvard. (interruption) That's right, she's smarter than you are.
RUSH: Elizabeth Warren is "speaking with forked tongue," apparently.
RUSH: You know, if Ward Churchill had a daughter, would she look like Elizabeth Warren?
