Disagrees with Glenn Beck
-Headline of the day-
"After saying Obama has 'hatred for white people,' Beck claims, 'I'm not saying that he doesn't like white people.'"
The voices in Glenn's head are having on-air arguments now. I'm not saying that Glenn Beck's crazier than a square mile of snakes, I'm just saying that he's crazier than 27,878,400 square feet of snakes. (Think Progress, with video)
-Speaking of people who hate white people-
Sonia Sotomayor's nomination moves out of committee on a 13-6 vote. Widely expected to take control of the Supreme Court and use judicial activism to make it illegal to be white, Sotomayor now moves on to a vote by the full senate, after which she's almost certain to be seated.
"Based on her record as a judge and her statements, I am not able to support her nomination," says totally not racist Sen. Jeff Sessions. "In speech after speech, year after year, Judge Sotomayor set forth a fully formed judicial philosophy that conflicts with American philosophy of blind justice to the law." Personally, I don't think that justice is supposed to be blind to the law, so whatever Jeff is trying to say here, I don't think it's what he said.
Twitter poet Chuck Grassley had other reasons for voting against her. "This radical empathy standard stands in stark opposition to what most of us understand to be the proper role of the judiciary," he said.
"Radical empathy?" I'm becoming more and more convinced that Chuck sets his alarm early enough so that there's no danger of him ever waking up sober. Then it's rye for breakfast.
So there you go. Republicans have failed to save America from the Wise Latina Menace. Brush up on your crazy Mexican-people-language, Gringo. You're going to need it. (Politico)
-Yeah, that's it-
"We got too many Jim DeMints and Tom Coburns. It's the southerners. They get on TV and go errrr, errrrr."
-Ohio GOP Sen. George Voinovich on why Republicans aren't doing well with voters.
That's right, people are turned off by Republicans because they've got a southern accent, not because of the crazy-assed things they say in those southern accents. What the Republican party should do is dump all their resources into hiring speech therapists to do an Eliza Doolittle job on southern GOPers.
Really, it's their only hope. (Political Wire)
