GOP Demagogues Attack Sotomayor

Republican senators continued through Tuesday and Wednesday to express reservations about Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor, as some conservative interest groups and pundits ratcheted up the pressure for the GOP to oppose the nomination. Rush Limbaugh went so far as to call Sotomayor a "reverse racist" and a "hack" while decrying moderate Republicans for their even-keeled response to President Obama's court pick.

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich took to his Twitter account, echoing Limbaugh's racism claim. "White man racist nominee would be forced to withdraw. Latina woman racist should also withdraw," Gingrich wrote.

"Imagine a judicial nominee said 'my experience as a white man makes me better than a Latina woman,'" Gingrich posted to his Twitter account. "New racism is no better than old racism."


I'm not going to waste a lot of time writing about the Right wing idiots who are slandering Sonia Sotomayor. The baseless accusations that are being thrown her way are being disproved everyday. The Man of Steele needs to get his party in order. His "team" is full of uninformed talking heads who don't seem to have any direction. I almost choked on my dinner a few days ago when I heard Lil Newt and Rush call Sotomayor a racist. Demagoguery is not going to keep her off the Supreme Court and it's not going to make Americans turn on President Obama. These guys are "Talkin Loud and Saying Nothing."

Like a dull knife just ain't cuttin'
We're just talkin' a lot and sayin' nothing
Just sayin' nothing, just sayin' nothing
You can't tell me how to run my life down
You can't tell me how to keep my fitness sound
You can't tell me what I'm doin' wrong
When you keep jivin' and keep on
Singin' that same old funny song
