The Shape of Things to Come

Any conservatives who genuinely believe that their campaign against Sonia Sotomayor would be well-advised to check out the segment I just saw on CNN. Rick Sanchez was hosting Tom Tancredo and Eric Boehlert. And Sanchez, who’s normally very restrained and I don’t think has shown any particular left-wing tendencies, got really pissed off at Tancredo’s distortions. And not to knock Sanchez, but he’s not someone who’s historically struck me as any more likely to get pissed off at guests who come on his show to peddle distortions than is any other daytime cable news host. But just as I was pissed off yesterday, Rick Sanchez is pissed off today.
