America...It's Greeeeeaaaaat!

Any guess on the Vegas odds four years ago of a highly-popular black president nominating a highly-qualified Hispanic female to the Supreme Court in 2009?

Highly qualified???

But Ilya Shapiro said and I quote
"In picking Sonia Sotomayor, President Obama has confirmed that identity politics matter to him more than merit. While Judge Sotomayor exemplifies the American Dream, she would not have even been on the short list if she were not Hispanic."

And Rush Limbaugh called her a racist

Who to believe? Who to believe?

lol. If it's a credibility contest between Rush and Head Dude, even I would have to give the nod to Head Dude.

Ahh but now Newt Gingrich is also calling Sotomayor a racist.

I'm so confused. Who to believe???

Newt continues to be an enigma. Until a few months ago, I thought he was positioning himself as a reasonable conservative who could be a viable contender for the Republican nomination in 2012. Since then he's become a radical by calling on Pelosi to resign (ironic given the hypocrisy involved), shouting down Obama, and now this racist nonsense.

Of course, this radicalism may only be making him even more of a viable contender for the nomination.
