It is indisputable that Judge Sonia Sotomayor will be the best looking justice to ever sit on the Supreme Court, despite being stupid, under qualified and racist.
“The Senate needs to asses her ability to rule fairly without undue influence from her own personal race, gender or political preferences.” -Senator James Inhofe (R) Oklahoma
“They’re just like ‘hey Hispanic chick lady! You’re empathetic?’ She says ‘yup!’ They say, ‘you’re in.’ That’s the way it really works.” -Glenn Beck, High Priest of Douchbaggery
“Not necessarily, I know lots of stupid people who went to ivy league schools” -Karl Rove
Think he was thinking about Dumbya? I did not steal that joke from Olbermann, we just happened to be like minded.
“I’m telling you, she appears to be a racist…” -Republican Congressman Tom Tancredo
“White man racist nominee would be forced to withdraw. Latina woman racist should also withdraw” -Newt Gingrich
“This is someone clearly picked because she’s a woman and Hispanic, not because she’s the best qualified” -Curt Levey, Committee For Justice, Head Asshat
“She’s a bigot, she’s a racist.” -Rush Limbaugh, Human Shitsmear
The egregious irresponsibility of such claims notwithstanding. The resolute ugliness aside. Typical obfuscation by a cavalcade of morons speaking for the Republican party. Methinks they doth protest too much and certainly too early as well as too vociferously. Textbook example of a pot decrying a kettle as all things black. Man I hate these guys.
As for me, I don’t yet have an opinion. She is among the most experienced and qualified of any justice nominated for about a hundred years. She’s had three decisions upheld by the highest court in the land, two overturned and one still pending. Given that about seventy five percent of decisions are overturned by the Supreme Court, she’s batting like a superstar.
She obviously deserves consideration in light of her education, accomplishments and distinction in that arena. Her extensive experience in all matters of jurisprudence. This woman is a bit of a rockstar on paper.
That’s all I know. Fer cryin outloud, it’s been two days!
What makes me angry, is that it’s so predictable. So goddamn obvious. For people like me who pay a modicum of attention, there are no surprises here. What exactly does all this say about the contemporary conservative movement? The abrupt, violent knee jerk so predictable and anticipated, that I could have written their talking points for them.
This country desperately thirsts for and needs something beyond a two party system. My dismay is that the GOP cannot even provide an intellectually honest contrast in a a tragically flawed and nearly broken government of a mere two parties. We are fractured from the inside. The catalyst for most of the internal bleeding is the absolute onus of the modern conservative movement. Neocons. They are fools. Jackasses, unwilling to look further than their own noses, fears and absurd bias.
California’s prop. 8 debacle is a flaming example. Pun intended.
Unable and unwilling to avoid stepping on their own withering dicks. I’m talking about the groups who campaigned for it’s passage. They think it’s a victory. Pathetic.
The Republicans have failed us in more ways than one. I’m a Democrat, for lack of a more appropriate political designation. I have little enthusiasm for what the implosion of the Republican party means for the long term chance America has for prosperity. Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
At the very least, we require a reasonable ballast. We really must have a more diversified collection of voices and ideas. The abject failure of the GOP to even make sense, much less own a viable stake in any ethical argument, will amount to a tragedy for us all, regardless of political stripe. The Republican party has not only failed itself, it has failed all of America.
Fools. Goddamn them.
A new ethic is emerging and it is muscular and potent, yet without intelligent and honest contraposition, it cannot evolve. What we are staring at is a massive shift. It might be an excellent thing for humankind, but it must endure smart debate and insightful criticism or it will atrophy and we all lose. This new ethic must suffer the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune or it will crack when tested. If not allowed to arrive with a confident consensus, it will crumble.
We may be looking at our last best chance.
A last dance.
You people need to contact these assholes and give them a heads up.
Drinks for my friends.
