In response to the obvious reality that Elizabeth Warren is an unrepentant liar, Saturday Night Live decided to portray her as a salt-of-the-earth honest everywoman who cares only about the common man.
This wasn’t a parody. It is how they actually see her.
If SNL actually cared about comedy instead of serving a political agenda, we would see Warren running barefoot across the plains chasing the mythic giant Oklahoma crab with her mayonnaise-tipped arrow, drawn and ready. Or perhaps she could be Frosty the Cultural Appropriator. Perhaps SNL could replay the scene in Ghostbusters where Dan Aykroyd is offered the opportunity to choose America’s destroyer, but instead of the Stay Puft Marshallow Man, out comes a giant belching Cherokee princess, spear in one hand and beer in the other. That last one hits a little too close to home.
Warren has surpassed Joe Biden in more than the polls. She has also eclipsed his role as the race’s most shameless prevaricator, which is practically a job requirement in today’s Democratic Party.
The latest lie she told is the Biden type, a reimagining of history to bolster her résumé and personal story. One of her cornerstone stories while campaigning is that she was fired from a teaching job because she was pregnant. In Warren’s telling, her horrible principal wished her luck and threw her out on the street.
That news must come as a real shock to the maligned principal and board of education, since they appear to have treated Warren with nothing but respect and offered her a job extension. They accepted Warren’s resignation with regret, and why not? It’s not every day you lose your sole American Indian on staff, which no doubt immediately messed up their “diversity is our strength” ratio.
