. . If a White Man Said it. .

Once again, the Republican Party operatives and Conservative knife fighters trying desperately to gain the momentum are moving along the complete wrong lines and looking like idiots doing it. With the president’s nomination of Judge Sotomayor to the Supreme Court, the Conservatives are already howling about her “reverse racism.”

The mainstream media aught to be ashamed of itself for allowing the juvenile phrase “reverse racism” into the conversation at all. But if Conservatives want to hypothisize about what would happen “if a white man said” some of the more controversial things that Judge Sotomayor has said in the past, allow me to point out that, had that happened, the white man in question would have had the full tradition of 200 years of American history behind her.

But by all means, Republicans, pick on the Hispanic judge for being racist after all your crap about immigration. Great political thinking, but then you can’t help yourselves, can you?
