More Oops from Elizabeth Warren, Smartest Woman EVAHAHAHAAAA [Dan Collins]
You know Elizabeth Warren, the woman who’s running against Scott “The Nekkid RINO” Brown. She’s the creatrix of the intellectual underpinnings of the Occupy movment, and stop laughing. She’s also a millionairess who opted not to pay Massachusetts’ opt-in higher tax rate, though she thinks that the wealthy should be more heavily taxed. The wealthy, having means at their disposal to flee to other states, or if that is inconvenient at least dock their yachts* there to avoid those higher taxes that they advocate, will get out of the Bay State when they reach the conclusion that the fresh turbot is just not worth the Commonwealth’s surcharges, so it’s necessary to impose a Global Minimum Tax (and later Skynet) to make sure that international bureaucrats have the means at their disposal to enmiserablize one’s life wherever one goes.
So, in concert with Obama, she’s been stumping on the issue of student loans. Let’s set aside the insanity of their continuing to make hash out of hash tags on Twitter, and just note that they want the bros to think they’re not getting tased until after the election. That’s why it’s so downright funny when information such as this emerges:
U.S. Sen. Scott Brown’s campaign is blasting Democratic Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren’s financial history as she campaigns in support of low-interest student loans, saying the Harvard Law professor’s interest-free loan from Harvard means she is too out of touch with students’ everyday struggles.
Warren disclosed the 20-year interest free loan from Harvard, which lent her between $15,000 and $50,000 in 1996, in financial disclosure forms filed with the Senate last September.
“Let me get this straight: struggling students and families pay more, so multi-millionaire Warren can pay nothing? This sweetheart deal adds insult to injury for the students whose high tuition costs have already made Warren a wealthy one-percenter, and reveals yet again Professor Warren’s hypocritical idea of fairness,” wrote Brown’s campaign manager Jim Barnett.
Yes, Mr. Barnett, due to their practice of making things clear and also perfectly clear, straight is the way you have gotten that. As for who paid Obama’s loans, we are still in the dark, but we do know that the financial burden of those loans caused him to ask not to have to pay off the advance that he got from a publisher to write his first book, straight out of Harvard Lawgh School, when he blew the deadline repeatedly, even though he had a job with a financial news analysis memo-writing company straight out of law school where he was famous among his co-workers for sitting on his duff, writing his memoirs, and taking a paycheck. It was a pattern of entitled shit-headedness that he would repeat at the University of Chicago, where he was not well liked by a different set of colleagues:
The highest tenured faculty member at Chicago Law spoke out on Barack Obama saying, “Professors hated him because he was lazy, unqualified, never attended any of the faculty meetings.”
Doug Ross reported this and more:
I spent some time with the highest tenured faculty member at Chicago Law a few months back, and he did not have many nice things to say about “Barry.” Obama applied for a position as an adjunct and wasn’t even considered. A few weeks later the law school got a phone call from the Board of Trustees telling them to find him an office, put him on the payroll, and give him a class to teach. The Board told him he didn’t have to be a member of the faculty, but they needed to give him a temporary position. He was never a professor and was hardly an adjunct.
The other professors hated him because he was lazy, unqualified, never attended any of the faculty meetings, and it was clear that the position was nothing more than a political stepping stool. According to my professor friend, he had the lowest intellectual capacity in the building. He also doubted whether he was legitimately an editor on the Harvard Law Review, because if he was, he would be the first and only editor of an Ivy League law review to never be published while in school (publication is or was a requirement).
Lovers of verse still contend with political haters of Obama whether it was a good thing or not that he decided to ditch the pecuniary advantages of the poet’s life for politics, or the life of a high-powered consultant for that of a graft-powered insultant. There’s a mise-en-abyme in one of his PETAphagical memoirs about him taking an elevator to the floor on which he pretended to work at that “high-powered consulting firm,” and seeing himself in a three-piece suit opts for a career in which mom jeans pose not too much of an impediment, after which he ordered up some hookers, blow and imported beer on the company tab as his way of saying goodbye.
Why he and Mooch surrendered their law licenses to the State of Illinois, where lots of felons seem still to have theirs, is shrouded in gorilla midstery.
All of this carping will get us nowhere, though. It is a truth universally acknowledged that a person engaged in taking money from one group of people (let’s call them ‘earners’) to lavish on another (let’s call them ‘occupiers’) in order to try to keep a scam (let’s call it the ‘education bubble’) afloat are doing such manifestly humanitarian work that their personal foibles should pass unnoticed, especially if they involve eating dog.
