The Colbert Report Monday May 3rd 2010
Came across this whilst listening to the BBC World Service today. Despite the patronizing introduction by Matt Frei and general lack of depth, it’s good to hear this kind of interview in the mainstream media. Elizabeth Warren interview starts 1m30 seconds in to the programme.
“This problem has been more than 30 years in the making and will be more than 30 months in the repair”
Warren’s problem for being picked for Scotus was that she is not of the right ethnicity or sexual tendency, allegedly. You have to hit more than one minority status box (homosexual, black/Latino/Jewish, feminist, campus communist) to get Obama’s attention. Kagan ticks most, if not all of these, plus, unlike Warren, she’s not particularly bright or distinguished. Affirmative action and all that.
The other point is that Warren is a Protestant, like the majority of Americans, and after Kagan is ratified, there will be no Protestants left on the Supreme Court. Diversity, eh?
Brave New America.
Glen Beck, he speaks the truth.
Goddam, what does it take for an AMERICAN to get ahead?

Tim Geithner Opposes Nominating Elizabeth Warren To Lead New Consumer Agency -> huffingtonpost.com/2010/07/1 … 47691.html
Lots of pressure from the base to appoint her.
Personally, I think the Supreme Court is where she should end up and the NCA would be a sideshow…
