Didn't like the way Sonia Sotomayor said Latinas just made better judges than white guys? Then you're a racist.Except that isn't what she said and, to her credit, she never backed away from what she did say. But Sotomayor did acknowledge that axe-grinding hacks like Patrick McIlheran may have misunderstood.
Subtlety and mindfulness of context not being among your garden-variety conservative Republican calumnist's strongest suits.
Blatant hypocrisy is, however. Exhibit A: Witness McIlheran's complaints that Limbaugh was pilloried for things he never uttered.
Moreover, contrary to Patrick McIlheran's revisionist victimology, it was Rush Limbaugh who loudly condemned Sotomayor as a racist.
And for this they laid off Tom Strini?
