Hoisted by their own petards

Here's today's GOP doing the Dems' dirty work for them.
The topic: Sonia Sotomayor

Leading off, G. Gordon Liddy:
"Let's hope that the key conferences aren't when [Sotomayor]'s menstruating or something, or just before she's going to menstruate. That would really be bad. Lord knows what we would get then."

Batting second, Newt Gingrich:
"a Latina woman racist."
"she shouldn't even get a vote, and should be withdrawn from consideration."
"Obama is the greatest living example of a reverse racist"
Hitting third, Rush Limbaugh:
she's a "hack"
"She brings a form of bigotry or racism to the court,"
"That's what would be asked if somebody were foolish enough to nominate David Duke or pick somebody even less offensive."

And in the clean up spot, Tom Tancredo:
"an organization called La Raza, in this case, which is, from my point of view anyway, nothing more than...a Latino KKK "
If I were given to conspiracy theories I'd have to wonder if these guys aren't actually in deep cover working for Obama. Rope a dope indeed.

They've all been doing their mamas proud, haven't they?

You left out the guy who said he wouldn't pronounce Ms Sotomayor's name with the accent on the last syllable as it IS pronounced because that would deviate from "English" pronunciation and he just wasn't going to do that any more. I guess pronouncing her name correctly would somehow degrade his name (and probably his marriage). I hope he doesn't have any friends who think they have the right to pronounce their names as their parents/grandparents did or as they choose. Do we need an amendment protecting the right to decide the pronounciation of one's own name?? Who are these people?? Fortunately/unfortunately? the crap they are spewing will be tied to them forever on audio/video and in print. What a legacy! Their children/grandchildren may want to consider changing the spelling or pronouciation of their names--just to avoid the infamy.

Keep it classy.
