    Did I say the South? Are you suggesting that the only place that the GOP has any strength is the South? Interesting admission.

    If you're suggesting that since the Dred Scott decision that the South has been the best place for Blacks to live then I would suggest that I disagree....

    As for today if Blacks in the South are treated so much better than they are elsewhere and if the South is the last remaining GOP stronghold how come there aren't ANY Southern Black Republicans in office or even running for office in a national election?

    what the hell are you on about? What does any of this have to do with Obama appointing a bigot to the bench?

    Redress, if you check out the cases they discuss in that link, anytime the Supreme Court reversed, it was a very close decision. I would be concerned if the Supreme Court was reversing ALL of her decisions, but even then, it's not just her name attached to the decision being appealed. WTH?

    Thank you for the compliment. I am completely shocked at how Rush can dictate how others feel about this woman's nomination.

    So I am to assume you supported Bush's nomination of Harriet Myers, based on this crucial criteria of yours?

    Harriet Myers was a joke. I support a nomination of a woman who is incredibly, exceedlingly bright. Myers is not incredibly or exceedingly bright in my book. In fact, I would guess that I am smarter than her, and I don't deserve to be on the Supreme Court.

    This has been set up for awhile. The republicans where out there, setting out the talking points they where going to use against any nominee. By publicly listing what they felt a nominee should not be, they then had the ammo to pick and choose to smear any nominee with. This is not Rush alone, he is just part of the plan. They know they cannot stop the nomination, so they are just trying to score political points.

    I know what you said and what you were implying.

    In the past the south was not a great place for blacks but today it is totally different. I'm pretty sure you are one of those New England bigots who denigrates anything that emerges from the south. I've met your kind before and I am happy to show you how wrong you are.

    I don't care which political party blacks are involved in but I will tell you that black culture is mostly responsible for their failings today and not the white man.

    Sotomayer is not incredibly bright. I think they could have found a more leftist appointee who was incredibly bright, but she's just not.

    This is what happens when you go looking for a hispanic woman, instead of the most qualifed applicant.
