That’s the percentage of Republican senators who voted today not to confirm Sonia Sotomayor to the Supreme Court. 77%. Think about that number. Out of 40 Republican senators, just nine defied their nativist Republican base voters to support the first … Continue reading
E.J. Dionne notices it: Race-baiting is no longer off-limits on some of the right-wing talk shows. Fox News’ Glenn Beck, for example, declared that Obama “has a deep-seated hatred for white people or the white culture.” Ethnicity has been an … Continue reading
A one man American white male ignorance and resentment pride parade: And what the hell was that chest pounding gesture at the end about? True-heart conservatism has the courage to mouth hatred towards liberal women and Hispanics? He’s proud of … Continue reading
Matthew Yglesias today notes the hypocritical—and ultimately racist—undercurrent just beneath Shout Radio Republicans’ objections to Sonia Sotomayor: Qualifications like time at Princeton, Yale Law, and on the Circuit Court that work well for guys with Italian names suddenly don’t work if you … Continue reading
At his blog today, Julian Sanchez, a contributing editor to Reason magazine, lets loose on the way Republicans are treating Sonia Sotomayor: I’ll cop to sharing some of Yglesias’ irritation at the treatment of Sonia Sotomayor, and if Republicans are … Continue reading

Salon today notes that at least one conservative finds it galling even to pronounce Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor’s last name correctly: On National Review’s Web site, Mark Krikorian posted a screed about Sotomayor’s insistence that people pronounce her name correctly. … Continue reading
The New York Times reports that Mark McKinnon thinks the Republican Party is in serious long term electoral danger if conservatives loudly and obnoxiously oppose or hinder the nomination of the first Hispanic female to the Supreme Court: “If Republicans make a big deal … Continue reading
And he wants her to fail: Do I want her to fail? Yeah. Do I want her to fail to get on the court? Yes! She’d be a disaster on the court. Do I still want Obama to fail as … Continue reading

Supreme Court Justice Nominee Sonia Sotomayor: Win-Win for President Obama, Lose-Lose for Sotomayor’s Opponents?
National Journal’s Stuart Taylor deconstructs the politics of President Barack Obama’s Sonia Sotomayor nomination here. Money quote: The choice of Sotomayor also puts Republicans and moderate Democrats who may be deeply unhappy with her jurisprudence in a lose-lose position, and Obama … Continue reading
Father Absent at an Early Age, Raised by a Strong Mother, Ivy League School, Law Journal Editor: Judge Sonia Sotomayor Has Curiously Similar Life Experiences to Barack Obama’s
President Obama’s first Supreme Court pick is a Puerto Rican woman who rose from poverty. Judge Sonia Sotomayor grew up in the Bronx housing projects, and has curiously similar life experiences to Obama. But it will be ugly watching the … Continue reading
