White House urged to address 'racist' charge - Josh Gerstein - POLITICO.com
What caught my eye about this story is that the folks urging Sotomayor to take the comment back are members of Dear Leader's own party. His supposed friends and allies are practically admitting that Sotomayor's comment was fundamentally racist, even in context. There's no closing ranks rallying around Dear Leader or even Sotomayor, which I halfway expected.Some Democrats and political analysts are urging the White House to shift course and concede that Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor made an error when she suggested in 2001 that Hispanic women would make better judges than white men.
So will Dear Leader follow the advice of others in his own party, or will he ignore everyone and let the story play on?
