So, for the next two years, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) will travel the county as she pursues the presidency while collecting $174,000 for doing even less than the nothing she did in her first term.

Warren has released a video announcing (act shocked now) that she, for all intents and purposes, is a candidate for the 2020 Democrat presidential nomination, becoming the first big name Democrat to do so. Expect a flurry or perhaps a downpour of others to follow.

Warren's message appears to be the same old diatribe about how corporations suck and the economy sucks even worse. What the hell, Massachusetts voters bought it hook line and sinker in November, even though unemployment is at historic lows, the economy at historic highs and there is just so much winning going on.

Warren was even able to convince Massachusetts voters that illegal alien "mamas" at the border are a more serious issue than young college girls being murdered and their bodies dumped in the cornfields in Utah by illegals.

Liz Warren's record as a senator is abysmal, yet voters elected her to a second term knowing full well—or at least they were warned often enough—that she would immediately begin seeking a new job. Warren will, in essence, be paid $348,000 to take the next two years off.

Nice going suckers!
