The Trail of Crocodile Tears . . .

They must be terrified of Elizabeth Warren. After weeks of obsessing over her claim to be 1/32 Cherokee, The Boston Herald has opened up the latest front against her:
Elizabeth Warren, who has railed against predatory banks and heartless foreclosures, took part in about a dozen Oklahoma real estate deals that netted her and her family hefty profits through maneuvers such as “flipping” properties, records show.
The article lists several instances of Warren buying and reselling property or loaning money to relatives without alleging any wrongdoing or providing much in the way of context. Since she just won the Democratic nomination with 96% of the vote and is within the margin of error (via Steve M.) against Scott Brown, the attacks don't seem to be working.

For some reason, the Herald's idiocy is worthy of a Memeorandum thread.
