The Republican Base on Justice Sonia Sotomayor

Via Ali Frick of ThinkProgress. The Republican Base’s culture hero G. Gordon Liddy on Judge Sotomayor:>G. Gordon Liddy On Sotomayor: Miss Sotomayor is a member of La Raza, which means in illegal alien, “the race”…>Let’s hope that the key conferences aren’t when she’s menstruating or something, or just before she’s going to menstruate. That would really be bad. Lord knows what we would get then…>And everybody is cheering because Hispanics and females have been, quote, “underrepresented,” unquote. And as you pointed out, which I thought was quite insightful, the Supreme Court is not designed to be and should not be a representative body…Clean up your party, guys. I understand that you have a base that is heavily into identity politics of the worst kind–that thinks that the Supreme Court ought to be made up of eight old white men plus Clarence Thomas, that thinks that there is something wrong with people who menstruate, and that thinks it is funny to call Spanish “illegal ailen”–and that you think you must pander to it. But enough is enough.
