The Lyrics

This goes out to Democratic Senator candidate Elizabeth Warren who has been caught with her buckskins down .. as it has been revealed that she got her position as a professor at Harvard Law by claiming minority status as a member of the Cherokee nation based solely on the fact that her great great great grandfather married a Cherokee
My (great great great grand) father married up a Cherokee
The Harvard people sought diversity
I faked it to teach at Harvard Law
Now wingnuts calling me Indian Faux

Half (of half of half of half of a half) breed!
That's the thing I'm starting to hear
Half (of half of half of half of a half) breed!
Could put a crimp in my career
Half (of half of half of half of a half) breed
She's a fake they warned
Bloggers have been mocking since this story was born

We settled nicely into Harvard town
When you play the race card you can hang around
The wingnut bloggers making fun of me
Give her life tenure, she's a (thirtieth) Cherokee

Half (to the power of 5) breed!
That's what I'm starting to hear
Half (to the power of 5) breed!
Could put a crimp in my career
Half (to the power of 5) breed!
She's a fake they warned
Wingnuts are harrasing since this story was born

I've got my posting and I feel no shame
That's just how libs roll, tell me who's to blame
This Senate run exposed my ethnic scam
Now people see me for what I am

Half (cubed, then squared) breed!
That's what I'm starting to hear
Half (cubed, then squared) breed!
Could put a crimp in my career
Half (cubed, then squared) breed!
She's a fake they warned
Polls have gone against me since this story was born

(Apparently the story has gotten worse for Elizabeth Warren, as the ethnic makeup of her great great great grandmother is now in question ... she's either only half Cherokee or not Cherokee at all. All of which has led Paul Revere and the Raiders to sing out in protest ...)

They checked the whole Cherokee nation
Couldn't find a blood relation
Took away Liz Warren's lie
Left her hanging high and dry
Took away her ethnic scam
Whole diversity thing's a sham
And all the white males they did cheat
Will drag her Party down to defeat

Cherokee deceitful, Cherokee lie
So hard to forgive, so hard to jibe

Exposed the whole equivocation
Voters now have reservations
And since this caused my career to die
I'm feeling vengeful, can't deny

Cherokee deceitful, Cherokee lie
So hard to forgive, so hard to jibe

And maybe someday once they're burned
Sense of fairness will return
Will return, will return

OBTW, those words in parenthesis in "Half Breed" ... they're sung by a chorus of Cherokee background singers .. or something. Which means my parody actually does match the pace of the OS ..or something

I can't imagine there's too many people who are only 1/64 Cherokee, must be a very small minority, certainly worth more governmental protection than most larger minorities! ;-)

Clever conflation.

One half clever, one half fun!

Things have gotten even worse for the would-be senator. It seems that her great great great grandfather rounded up Cherokees into stockades in (what is now) Chattanooga, to start them off on the Trail of Tears.

Thanks, all. Steve, I was actually aware of that fact, but when the line "Couldn't find a blood relation" popped into my head, I decided to avoid using that bit of info about Warren's great great great grandfather... although I have no doubt that a parody on that score is quite doable. Talk about brutal irony

Maybe Elizabeth Warren and Ward Churchill can get together and admire each others high cheekbones.
