Fauxcahontas and Single Payer

From William Jacobson at Legal Insurrection:
Anyone who has seen Elizabeth Warren deal with the Cherokee issue knows the routine — immediately change the subject, answer the question you wanted asked not the question actually asked, keep talking rapidly, and most of all, act as if you have not just been caught in a lie.

Jacobson continues:
Notice that when the interviewer reads Warren’s own words back to her contradicting her claim that she does not support single payer, she immediately mentions that she wrote it with two other people — as if that has anything to do with anything, but it was a convenient segue to pretending she was not caught misrepresenting her own position.
