Sonia Sotomayor v Bigotry

US Supreme CourtImage by dbking via Flickr

It's kind of redundant to post about this at this point. Every blog that even dabbles in politics is writing about, most better than I could. BUT - just how blatantly bigoted to the Republicans think it's a good idea to be? Do they think that their base of white, angry, frightened senior citizens is going over time? They're exquisitely expressing fear of ethnicity and gender all over the freaking place. Rush says she's an "angry woman". Although I'm not seeing it, I don't really see where he's in a position to criticize anger. It's made him a bundle. Although, of course, he also says that Obama has a chip on his shoulder. Transference much, Rush? Obama surely does have a lot on his shoulders. Not many people can legitimately claim to have the weight of the world on their shoulders, but the POTUS can and when you add all the shit left behind by the Bushies it's a wonder he can stand up, but he does. But you never see a sign of a chip.

This whole "reverse racism" thing might have seemed like a good idea for stirring up the low information, white, male, unemployed demographic, but they're taking it way too far like they've done with everything else and allowing everyone to see exactly what they're about.

  1. Greenwald or one of the commenters of his, found a clip from CSpan of Colburn asking Alito about his immigrant relatives and if that made a difference in how he made decisions.. his statement is almost identical to hers.. it is a GOPer I have the video.. it is classic and they are just going to die.. this is going viral big time. Now they are quickly running out of

  2. The reverse racism argument is a shopworn loser. If that's the best they've got, she's home free.

  3. They have nothing. The louder they scream the lies, the more people turn against them.

    Rushole is doing us a big favor. The more he bitches and calls her names, the more he pushes the Hispanics and other minorities away from the Party of Failure.

  4. It's not just the Republicans who are engaging in this tripe. Try the New York Times with their latest article "Sotomayor's Sharp Tongue Raises Issues of Temperament".

    Would a newspaper even bring this up if she was a male jurist who was sharp-tongued and assertive on the bench? Nope.
