Elizabeth Warren is going to be a great senator as long as she doesn’t have to answer questions

One of the old stereotypes about Native Americans is that they’re very taciturn. Don’t talk much.

So maybe this whole time, Elizabeth Warren has been telling the truth?

Boston Herald:

A jittery U.S. senator-elect Elizabeth Warren gave one-sentence answers, ducked questions and even passed one on to Gov. Deval Patrick in an awkward first press conference since the election.

Warren spoke for a total of less than four minutes during the 11-minute press conference — the rest was taken up by Patrick and reporters’ questions.

After being asked her first question — how she’d protect defense spending — Warren was silent as she turned to Patrick.

“Defense spending is you,” Patrick prodded Warren.

“Oh, that’s mine,” Warren replied.

Yeah, that’s yours. You just got elected to the United States Senate, remember? Heap too much firewater on election night, maybe?

Sounds like she’s almost as scatterbrained in front of a microphone as Nancy Pelosi. So she has a bright future with the Democrats.

Aw, just kiddin’! Frank J. Fleming is right:
