On her most recent program, leftist MSNBC host Rachel Maddow summed up all conservative and Republican opposition to Sonia Sotomayors nomination for Supreme Court Justice as nothing more than a campaign that is substantially about race. Thus far, Maddow sneered, Republicans have attacked [Sotomayor's] Wise Latina comment, they have called her an affirmative action nominee, [and] they have singled out her ruling in an affirmative-action discrimination case.

My biggest complaint about this nomination is that I can't understand why Obama would nominate a former Panamanian dictator serving time in a U.S. prison to serve on the U.S. Supreme Court. :-P
and more people just read her remarks on FR than are ever going to see them on MSNBC
Specifically, it’s about Sotomayor’s membership in the racist organization “La Raza,” “The (Hispanic) Race.”
This is getting to be a broken record. Left’s only talking point.
This is their way of getting the sheeple scared to dissent
The State Media has declared that mentioning the racist acts of a member of a Designated Oppressed Group is . . . racist!
Perhaps he’s right.

For Pete’s sake, I don’t give a damn about her race or her gender. I DO give a damn about her beliefs about the constitution.

yes it’s all about race. HER race. HER racist attitude that she is better because of her race - just like the average kkk member.
HER racist attitude thinking that la raza is better then the aforementioned kkk because of the race of it’s members.
HER racist attitude that whites are safe targets for discrimination when blacks and hispanics are not.
yep. it’s all about race.
But the hammer had nothing to say about Franken’s many shortcomings until AFTER he got in.
Some voice of the people. I wonder if she ever asked him why he never paid back the Gloria Wise Boys and Girls Club (Bronx), after he pilfered their loot for Air America?
Truly. If she had the judicial temperament of Robert Bork I’d be 1000% behind her.
But criticizing Palin wasn’t about sexism, right dykey?
But opposition to Clarence Thomas was NOT about race?
First and last refuge of the left: Cry race.
In a way, it is about race. Not about the nominee’s race, whatever that is. It’s about the fact that the nominee IS A RACIST.
