Liz Warren’s Garage Sale [PHIL-OSOPHY]
Hurry, hurry while supplies last: memorabilia of Elizabeth Warren's down-the-drain presidential campaign!
"There's a sucker born every minute" is a phrase attributed to the famous showman, P.T. Barnum. Whether Barnum actually said this is as controversial as Elizabeth Warren claiming she is Native American on a form to join the Texas legal bar in the 1980s. Native Americans told her to fully retract that false claim.
And now, she's having a marked-down, last-chance garage sale "to forever remember our movement as you continue to dream big and fight hard." Are you looking for an "Elect Warren, End Washington Corruption" tote bag? Get yours now for $32 and get 20 percent slashed off. How about an "Elect Warren" 18 x 24 poster for only $25 with 20 percent off? But wait, there's more! Order before midnight tonight, and get an "Elect Warren" unisex t-shirt for just $30 and discounted an extra 20 percent.
The last-ditch effort also offers apparel and accessories and be sure to use the code "last chance" for 20 percent off selected items.
But to be honest, I'm disappointed not to find her recipe book included in this eleventh-hour clearance sale. You know the one I'm referring to? The "Pow Wow Chow Cookbook," where apparently she plagiarized three of the recipes, two from the New York Times and the other from a 1959 Better Homes & Gardens recipe. Maybe I'll find one for cheap at a thrift shop or yard sale.
If you don't think there's a sucker born every minute, you haven't had a good garage sale in a while.
