Those cute little racist rascals, Jeffy Sessions and Lindsey Grahamcracker, were as cute as they could be this week, but their cuteness didn’t fool Craig Crawford:

Watching Lindsey Graham’s gotcha grin as he needled Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor with disingenuous and rhetorical questions, you had to wonder what [ TF ] was so funny.  Does the Republican senator think it is amusing that he and his party’s condescending tone toward the Hispanic woman was costing them ethnic votes with each passing hour of Tuesday’s Judiciary Committee hearing?

It is not that the Republican inquiries were out of bounds in legal terms.  A confirmation hearing like this is a political forum.  Even if they vote for her, the fallout for Republicans could reach well beyond Hispanic voters.  They are coming across as a bunch of snarky and bitter old white men who cannot bear the thought of their kind losing power.  The impact of this story on the political scoreboard should give Democrats much more to smile about.

When little Jeffy wondered out loud why Judge Sotomayor didn’t vote with a fellow judge of her own uh, uh, RACE— in “solidarity”— we got a beaver shot down Jeffy’s racist little piehole.  Oh, sure, some citizens lament the senate hearing room doesn’t have a trap door under their seats, leading to the maw of a giant sewer that we could just flush these little hypocritical bigots down;  but remember, it’s good to see just what white racism smells like and looks like these days, right there on the TeeVee.  Live and learn, little voters, cause it’s high time we flush their little shit-eating grins right out of office.


  1. Hey welcome to USojo, Conrad,
    Yep, the world is watching, but the question remains, are enough thinking people going to see to it that finally there is no place for racist elected officials in government. It’s still a numbers game until our electorate becomes highly educated.

  2. Love the blog and love the trap door idea! These southern racist senators are playing to a racist constituency back home but the world is watching. The Republicans are once and for all going to be properly labeled by all thinking people as the party of racists and bigots.

    Soul sucking Retuglican Senator Dementor Sessions, denied a position on the federal bench in ’86 by his own party for his own racism, implies Sotomayor is a racist. This earned at least a silver star from his leader, Rush Limpbot, who makes the charge explicitly. (Loved the Huffpo’s headline today that actual minutes had passed without a Rethug reference to Sotomayor’s “wise Latina” line.)

    Huckleberry Graham, after incurring the Rotund One’s wrath by stating that Sotomayer, barring a self-inflicted meltdown, would become the next Supreme Court justice, sharpened his attack by repeating muddy charges about her temperament flung by anonymous sources.

    And Pat Buchanan wrote in Human Events yesterday that what the Rethugs “must do is expose Sotomayor, as they did not in the case of Ginsburg, as a political activist whose career bespeaks a lifelong resolve to discriminate against white males to the degree necessary to bring about an equality of rewards in society.”

    More rope, please.
