Over at Breitbart, Michael Patrick Leahy asks “Will Harvard Law School condemn Elizabeth Warren for Pow Wow Chow plagiarism?” Well, I can answer that question. More importantly, drawing on his background as publisher of Times Books, an optimistic Tom Lipscomb writes to comment on Leahy’s post:
A fine piece.
Pierre Franey was my author and did the best-selling cookbook THE 60 MINUTE GOURMET…he was Craig Claiborne’s partner. We published it at Times Books and I have one with a nice dedicatory epistle (note to authors…. a good idea to curry favor with your publisher and cheap, use HIS copy).
Both Franey’s crab recipes (a/k/a Ye Olde Oklahoma Cherokee recipes) Granny Dum Dum swiped are RIGHT THERE in a bestselling cookbook on pages 308-309. We printed over 100,000 copies.
So add incredibly stupid, to Warren being a liar, a fraud, and a plagiarist.
And scariest of all…The greatest danger to a Democrat running for office in MA is not the GOP candidate but a split between town and gown of any kind. For some reason (because they know it so well?) a Harvard association is not a feature candidates want to flaunt in MA.
And now Warren is having questions of her probity raised by a dark horse Italian American female Dem Primary challenge…! Not a happy development for Warren. I can’t wait to see the reason she withdraws and the Dems give up on the seat.
And what was that crucial Czar position again Obama tried to appoint her to that those pesky Republicans blocked?
