Thought of the Day

I would pay good money to hear Sonia Sotomayor say, “Senator Sessions, I think it’s ironic to be facing these questions from a man whose judicial nomination was rejected by this very committee on the grounds that he’s a huge racist.”


Seriously, though, when the Republican Senate Conference was meeting, did nobody say “if we’re going to oppose the first Hispanic Supreme Court justice, maybe we shouldn’t have a giant racist leading the charge?” This seems like a situation in which Mel Martinez might have been able to offer a useful perspective. Or they could have called up JC Watts out of retirement. What were they thinking?
