What I find amazing is that the "conservatives", whatever that means, are absolutely clueless about the damage that they are doing to their "movement".

They have no understanding of the basic shift in demographics, age and population shift that has left them irrelevant. Proof of this is the fun to watch suicide they are acting out in this bashing of Sotomayor......goodbye west Texas, Arizona and New Mexico.

What all of this proves is that the term "conservative" or Republican is just a nice word for moron.

There is a fellow that walks around my neighborhood swinging a hard ball in a tube sock and mumbling about Martin Buber. This is a "conservative".

Tim:

Wiat a minute. I thought the right wing media guys like Rush WERE the leaders of the Republican Party. Now they're not? Man, I wish you guys would make up your minds already.

Allen:

Conservative radio host, G. Gordon Liddy, attacked President Obama's Supreme Court nominee Thursday in perhaps one of the most grotesque politically oriented tirades in recent times." Let's hope that the key conferences aren't when she's menstruating or something, or just before she's going to menstruate," Liddy said. "That would really be bad. Lord knows what we would get then."

Let's hope the male members of the Court don't get erections during a conference...or worse; let's hope that they aren't impotent. Imagine how old, white men's decision will be influenced by their inability to get an erection. It probably impacts their whole worldview.

I don't think there is a better example of pure unadulterated hates then this. The guy knew exactly what he was saying and he thinks he knows exactly what the result will be (to excite the ever dwindling base of fruitcakes). Each time these right wing nuts spew more hate they drive a few thousand more voters away. And once in a while you get a real ignorant one like this, which can drive hundreds of thousands of voters away. My only question is why do the radio stations still even consider keeping these people on the airwaves?

First, it was the fact she was Latina. Then, it was what she ate. After that, it was her being a member in a civil rights' group. Bet she's a card-carrying member of the ACLU, too. And now, her cycle. Did you know that the top buyers of Viagra are white males in this country? I don't think he's had his Viagra lately. Because he wouldn't dream of worrying about some woman's period if he were getting the required daily surge of testosterone. That was some "bitch" sh** he said. Let him and his ilk keep talking. They're going to talk the RETHUGLICAN party right out of existence. He's bleeding right now and you know his menstrual cycle is affecting his mouth.

epador:

It sure is a good thing the Democrats don't have any media types who spew filth on the air and internet, or this would be a pot calling kettle black instance.

Lee Ward:

Short epadaor: "It's Bill Clinton's fault!"

steve:

Being called a racist is getting pretty old. Lee. Let me tell you what racism is.
Racism is black panthers with billy clubs intimidate white voters. Racism is a president who has those same black panters' charges dismissed. Racism is a segment of the population voting against McCain by 95% because he is white.
Get it?

groucho:

There are imbecilic hatemongers on both fringes of the political spectrum. It just seems that the fringe is the mainstream on the right.

So were the Democrats who filibustered Miguel Estrada's appointment to the Court of Appeals racist as well?

http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,111286,00.html

One Nov. 7, 2001, memo from staff to Sen. Richard Durbin, R-Ill., suggested that the "groups" would help stall the nomination of Miguel Estrada (search), a Bush nominee to the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals. The memo called him "dangerous," in part because he "has a minimal paper trail, he is Latino and the White House seems to be grooming him for a Supreme Court appointment."

...

Shoemaker said no one intended racist remarks against Estrada, who ended up stepping down from the nomination. The memo meant he was "politically dangerous" because Democrats knew he was an attractive candidate.

Lest anyone get confused, Democrat Durbin is erroneously labeled as an "R-Ill" in the article. Estrada was opposed because as a Hispanic he was an attractive candidate and politically dangerous.

So opposing a Hispanic candidate like Sotomayor based on merit (i.e. her comment to La Raza that a Hispanic female will reach better conclusions than a similarly educated white male) is racist, but opposing a Hispanic candidate like Estrada for rank, identity politic reasons is not racist?

drlava:


Ok........well I stopped laughing. Barron, you are quoting 2 sentences from Fox news out of context. Is that all you got?

Let's hear what your real beef is about Sotomayer.

Lee Ward:

Methinks the lady doth protest too much...

Yes, Barron - you're still a racist. At least, some Republicans are saying you're inappropriate:

"Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, head of the National Republican Senatorial Committee, also condemned the remarks by Gingrich and Limbaugh, noting that "neither one of these men are elected Republican officials."

"I think it's terrible," Cornyn said in an interview this week with NPR's "All Things Considered." "This is not the kind of tone any of us want to set when it comes to performing our constitutional responsibilities of advise and consent." "

Let's see - Republican Jeff Sessions thinks to too.

"I'm uneasy," Sessions said in a 30-minute interview in his office in the Russell Senate Office Building. "I don't think that's good rhetoric. The question is, has the judge gone too far or not, given the established law of the land?"

But you just keep yammering away and doing what you're doing -- the 10% of Americans who are as racist as you are appreciate it -- and Democratic activists appreciate it even more, trust me.

The developments highlight the rift within the Republican Party over how to approach the nomination of Sotomayor, the first Hispanic person to be nominated to the high court. Republicans have lost ground badly with Hispanics over the past four years, in part because of rhetoric on immigration and other issues, and GOP centrists believe the party could be headed for political disaster if it mishandles the Sotomayor nomination.

You're a sick puppy, Barron - and even your own party is getting tired of your stupid, hate-filled, racist remarks.

Sue:

Barron, Don't even try reasoning with the leftists on this. According to them a "brown person" or a "black person" simply cannot be racist because they are in the "minority" and "oppressed". Only whites can be racist. So therefore saying she is racist (which she is) makes the one saying it racist.

Not rational but that's they way they are.
