Last January the 22nd, I posted a piece on Pajamas Media that suggested: For all the vitriol that has been coming from the left, and specifically out of President Obama’s mouth during the campaign, there’s a difference in tone coming out of the Obama camp over the last several weeks.

It is hard to be liberal.   This blogger recently got noticed by the blog Whiskey Fire: May 26, 2009 We Have a Wiener! WINNER! The first wingnut to go for the ethnic slur over the Sotomayor nomination is… BitsBlog! Not surprisingly, Obama appears to be focusing demographics and not judicial factors. Obama isn’t looking for […]

Indeed, unless Sotomayor believes that Latina women also make better judges than Latino men, and also better than African-American men and women, her basic proposition seems to be that white males (with some exceptions, she noted) are inferior to all other groups in the qualities that make for a good jurist. Stuart Taylor, Jr. National […]

We’ve gotten word of  Obama’s first USSC appointment this morning. The SCOTUSBLOG said this morning it’ll be Sonia Sotomayor.   I’ve not read enough about Sotomayor’s rulings to get a clear picture on what she’s about, but I think it a lead pipe cinch she’s going to be trying to redefine the constitution, instead of upholding it. […]

From the Palm Treo: I’m sitting in the back yard, watching over some steaks and a little corn on the cob. I have a question that I dare say will make some of you rather uncomfortable. To set this up, I’ll take you back to last evening. I noticed a good deal of traffic coming […]

Joe Sudbay, America Blog, must be one of all of three people that think Colin Powell is a republican: There may be some fireworks on this Memorial Day weekend — intra-GOP fireworks. Colin Powell may have been a successful military leader, but he’s fighting a futile battle here. Cheney and Limbaugh are the leaders of […]
