Sotomayor Gets Out of Committee

.oO Dios mio, Atrios is right- the stupid does burn! Oo.

No thanks to the likes of anti-global warming wacko James Inhofe. In fact, only one Republican on the Senate Judiciary Committee bothered voting for Judge Sotomayor to give her the up-and-down vote she deserves and that was South Carolina's Lindsey Graham. Otherwise, the split was along party lines, 13-6.

Inhofe decided back in June about a month before the confirmation hearings, that he wouldn’t meet with Sotomayor. He never bothered waiting for her written questionnaire, which was longer and went into more exhaustive detail than in the case of Roberts and Alito. He never bothered reviewing the 3000 or so cases over which Judge Sotomayor had presided as a federal judge. Like a typical Bushbot, he just decided from the gitgo that she wasn't worth even a cursory look.

Inhofe, on the other hand, seems to think that the birthers are on to something and is more afraid of alienating the hard core of Crazy Base World than he is Latino voters that are avoiding the GOP in droves and he proved it by saying of the birthers, “I don’t discourage” the bat shit insane belief that Obama was born in Kenya.

Just as a post scriptum, has anyone noticed that this story has so far gotten far less play on the internet than the outcome of last night's finale of The Bachelorette?

Of course, it could just be a gigantic yawn on the part of the MSM because her going before the full Senate was a foregone conclusion...

Nah, didn't think so. We're goldfish, afterall.
