and the Hindenberg of Gasbags, predictably says he hopes she fails.
The heart and soul of the GOP again wishes for failure, and gives Mr. Obama's nominee a great big NO!
The Hindenberg of Gasbags also said Judge Sotomayor would be a "disaster" for this country, which elicited more howls of laughter from people with the ability to actually think.
Imagine this: A guy from a family of lawyers and judges, a family of privilege, who, in addition to failing all of his academic subjects in college, actually failed his ballroom dancing classes, is passing judgment on a woman whose parents emigrated from Puerto Rico, whose father died when she was a child, whose mother worked two jobs and instilled in her two children [her brother is a physician] all the values we hold dear, a woman who graduated with the highest honors from two of America's finest institutions of higher learning, and who was appointed by Republican President, George H.W. Bush, to the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York , becoming the youngest judge in the Southern District and the first Hispanic federal judge anywhere in New York State.
And Gasbag extraordinaire is telling his audience she's not worthy to become a JotSCotUS! And he hopes she fails.
Meanwhile, as noted over at Atrios' blogspot, Eschaton, Mike Huckabee referred to Judge Sotomayor as "Maria" Sotomayor, because, y'know, "they" are all named "Maria."
And will the Senate Repubs use the fillibuster on this nominee after coming out vehemently against the Dems doing so?
Let's see if the GOP can out-hypocrite even themselves.
Found this over at dailykos:
GEORGE H.W. BUSH: I have followed this man's career for some time, and he has excelled in everything that he has attempted. He is a delightful and warm, intelligent person, who has great empathy and a wonderful sense of humor. He's also a fiercely independent thinker with an excellent legal mind who believes passionately in equal opportunity for all Americans. He will approach the cases that come before the Court with a commitment to deciding them fairly, as the facts and the law require.
Speaking about Supreme Court Justice nominee, Clarence Thomas.
