GOP 2012

Is it too early to begin thinking about 2012?

So What.

Here’s the ticket …


Sarah Palin/Liz Cheney!

Works for me.

Koko Taylor has died

from CNN:
Taylor was born Cora Walton and picked up the nickname “Koko” because of her love of chocolate as a child. She also displayed a love of singing from an early age.

She was 80 years old.

Sotomayor is toast

Update:  Foxnews — the wise latina remarks are “far from isolated’

Breaking over at Greg Sargent’s blog …

Sotomayor Made Same “Wise Woman” Speech In 1990s — And No One Objected

I’ve just obtained a speech that Sonia Sotomayor gave in 1994, in which she made a comment virtually identical to the “wise Latina” one from 2001 that has generated so much controversy.

And though the 1994 speech was disclosed to Republican Senators as part of her confirmation for Court of Appeals in 1998, there’s no sign that anyone objected to it in any way.

Greg believes that the existence of this previously disclosed speech suggests “that the comments are not as controversial as her critics claim.”

As much as I would have rather seen this information come out during direct questioning in the confirmation hearings, I have to disagree with Sargent’s assertion.

First, the disclosure was made prior to her confirmation hearings in 1998 for the Court of Appeals, not for a spot on the Club of Nine. Big difference.

But more importantly, this revelation absolutely smashes and destroys the “she misspoke” defense offered up by President Obama, WH Spokesman Robert Gibbs, and NBC reporter Brian Williams.

The Sotomayor nomination has just crashed and burned.

The double standard

The Washington Times said it best … “It’s a sad day in America when the shooting of an abortion doctor stops the presses but no one notices two soldiers gunned down by an Islamist.”

In contrast to the flurry of Presidential and DOJ activity following the Tiller murder, there has been no reaction at all from the Obama White House regarding the Islamist attack at a Conway, Arkansas recruiting center.

Toby Harnden writing at the UK Telegraph notes this statement from Alaska governor Sarah Palin.

“The stories of two very different lives with similar fates crossed through the media’s hands yesterday – both equally important but one lacked the proper attention. The death of 67-year old George Tiller was unacceptable, but equally disgusting was another death that police believe was politically and religiously motivated as well.

“William Long died yesterday. The 23-year old Army Recruiter was gunned down by a fanatic; another fellow soldier was wounded in the ambush. The soldiers had just completed their basic training and were talking to potential recruits, just as my son, Track, once did.

“Whatever titles we give these murderers, both deserve our attention. Violence like that is no way to solve a political dispute nor a religious one. And the fanatics on all sides do great disservice when they confuse dissension with rage and death.”

Harnden asks, “Is there a double standard operating here?”

I suppose the question is rhetorical.
