You Magnificent Bastard

It would be hard to find someone who is not familiar with the 2012 report by The Boston Globe regarding Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren’s failure to furnish any tribal documentation or genealogical evidence of her Native American heritage.

The Globe reported that Warren identified herself as Native American to Harvard University and the University of Pennsylvania, when she taught at both schools, in order to use her "minority status" as a way to further her career.

Entrepreneur, MIT graduate and Republican candidate V.A. Shiva Ayyadurai announced in February he would be running for the US Senate seat currently held by Pocahontas.

Last week, Ayyadurai—who proudly refers to himself as a "real Indian"—threw a jab at Warren by sending her an all-expenses-paid DNA test kit from 23&Me.  Clearly unamused, Pocahontas refused the challenger’s gift.
