Down the rabbit hole on the Sotomayor nomination…

May 31, 2009

goes certain GOP Senators, following the lead of Rush Limbaugh and Newt Gingrich:

“We need to know, for example, whether she’s going to be a justice for all of us or just a justice for a few of us,” said Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas), a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, speaking on ABC’s “This Week With George Stephanopoulos.”

Only days earlier, Cornyn said in a radio interview that it was “terrible” for conservatives to be attacking Sotomayor as a “racist.”

How is this in any way a smart move for the GOP, since playing the identity card risks permanently alienating Latinos for a generation.  I understand that the right wing ‘beast’ needs feeding, but surely thinking members in the GOP should stay away from this fight where they will certainly lose.
