Veteran Dem operative Jim Messina laments Elizabeth Warren’s DNA test timing
Notice the high cheek bones.

[Ed.- As Ben Bowles said today, the whole thing is a howler.  Impossible to take seriously; great for a laugh.  Congratulations to the Democrats.  Oh, and technically, the “evidence” is that she may be between 1/64th and 1/1024th Mexican, Colombian, or Peruvian.  Cherokee is not in the mix.]

One of the architects of President Barack Obama’s 2012 re-election vented frustration with Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.) after she released her DNA test showing evidence of Native American ancestry, tweeting “Why can’t Dems ever stay focused???” …

Jim Messina served as Obama’s campaign manager in 2012, the last successful election year for Democrats as Obama won a second term and Democrats expanded their Senate majority. Calling the midterms an opportunity for Democrats to “save America” by winning back Congress, he tweeted his agony over why Warren would apparently snatch up a news cycle with such a gesture three weeks before Nov. 6.

“Argue the substance all you want, but why 22 days before a crucial election where we MUST win house and senate to save America, why did @SenWarren have to do her announcement now? Why can’t Dems ever stay focused???” Messina tweeted.
