    Perhaps the Republican Party is waking up to the fact that the selective demonizing and strident tone set by such celebrities as Limbaugh and other political pundits does more harm then good to the party?

    haha....this is another example that blows the left wing talking points out of the water....e.g., the republicans all stick together and are not like the allegedly independant thinkers in the dem party :lol:

    please tell your writers to cross this point off and come up with some other inane talking point for you to memorize and blather

    There may be some moderate republicans that are afraid to criticize Sotomayor, but all the true conservatives that I know are not.

    Sotomayor is a first class bigot and has no place on the Supreme Court.

    Her statements like:

    "I would hope that a wise Latina woman with the richness of her experiences would more often than not reach a better conclusion than a white male who hasn't lived that life. "

    Is a racist statment, it would be racist if a white male stated " I would hope that a wise white man with the richness of his experiences would more often than not reach a better conclusion that a latina female who hasn't lived that life".

    The next two statements she made proves that she will not be a fair and just interpreter of the constitution but will be biased in her decisions.

    "Whether born from experience or inherent physiological or cultural differences our gender and national origins may and will make a difference in our judging."

    "Personal experiences affect the facts that judges choose to see,"

    A Supreme Court Justice's role is to interpret the laws as they are written and to adhere to the rule of law and set aside their personal feelings and preferences. She has clearly demonstrated she will use her personal experiences in her decisions. This cannot be allowed.

    You think questions about a pubic hair on a can of Coke is appropriate and not negative?

    Give it up, dude. You're doomed to be a hypocrite on this one.

    The wise Latina woman is not racist, it is the reality of what is wrong with her though. The law is not the experiences of the judge, the law is what we as a people, through constitutional means, make together. It is a contract between the people. She is saying that her prejudices are more important than what we as a people have decided should be the rules. Her prejudices are more valuable because they have been forged in a hotter furnace. But that is not democracy, where we chose our rulers based on the their promising to ignore our wishes for their own desires for revenge
