I Love Republicans

They’ve apparently decided that winning elections isn’t cool anymore. We don’t need no stinking Hispanic votes – ever!

[Rush] Limbaugh excoriated moderate Republicans like Colin Powell and Tom Ridge for not speaking out against Sotomayor’s nomination, calling the judge a “reverse racist.”

“Obama is the greatest living example of a reverse racist, and now he’s appointed one…to the U.S. Supreme Court,” he said on his radio show Tuesday. “So now he’s got a hack. He got a party hack that he’s put on the court that’s likely to be confirmed. This is where the so-called moderate Republicans are completely useless, if you ask me… We are confronting a radical assault on this nation, a radical assault today on the U.S. Supreme Court, and moderates in the Republican party are distracting our ability to organize the opposition.”

Former Republican House Speaker Newt Gingrich is also calling Sotomayor a racist. Gingrich wrote from his Twitter account “White man racist nominee would be forced to withdraw. Latina woman racist should also withdraw.”

Is there any way we can get Dick Cheney to hurl some insults at the first Latina Supreme Court nominee in American history? Maybe he and Tom Tancredo can tour the southwest together, spreading good cheer.
