Republican opposition to Supreme Court nominee reeks of hypocrisy!

Republican opposition to President Obama's Supreme Court Nominee, Judge Sonia Sotomayor, is hypocritical, based on the very racial divisiveness it claims to oppose.

Charles Blow nails it:

Someone pinch me. I must be dreaming.

Some of the same Republicans who have wielded the hot blade of racial divisiveness for years, are now calling Sonia Sotomayor, the Supreme Court nominee, a racist. Oh, the hypocrisy!

The same Newt Gingrich who once said that bilingual education was like teaching “the language of living in a ghetto” tweeted that Sotomayor is a “Latina woman racist.” The same Rush Limbaugh who once told a black caller to “take that bone out of your nose and call me back” called Sotomayor a “reverse racist.” The same Tom Tancredo, a former congressman, who once called Miami, which has a mostly Hispanic population, “a third world country” said that Sotomayor “appears to be a racist.”

This is rich.
