"Its not getting any brighter out there..." Part 2

Mother Jones comments on the mainstream press content on the Elizabeth Warren is she or isn't she an Indian controversy and highlights this gem from the Boston Herald:

"How long before wise guys in feathered headdresses start dancing around parking lots at your events? Somebody told me yesterday your campaign needs to lie low and “circle the wagons.” Whoops. That same someone quickly realized it was the pioneers who circled the wagons when your Cherokee ancestors were blazing across the prairie on the warpath"

Racist cultural stereotypes? Deep ignorance about the history of the Cherokee peoples? Never heard of "The Five Civilized Tribes" or of Sequoyah?

Dear Reader, I leave you to draw your own conclusion as to whether it is "getting any brighter out there".
