Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich said President Barack Obama's U.S. Supreme Court pick is a racist and should withdraw her name from consideration. The Georgia Republican made his comment a say after Obama announced he was nominating appellate court judge Sonia Sotomayor to the nation's highest court, ABC News reported Wednesday. Gingrich joined fellow conservatives such as Ann Coulter and Rush Limbaugh, calling Sotomayor a "reverse racist." The accusations came over comments Sotomayor made during a 2001 lecture at the University of California Berkeley. Referring to former Justice Sandra Day O'Connor's saying that "a wise old man and wise old woman will reach the same conclusion in deciding cases," Sotomayor said, "I would hope that a wise Latina woman with the richness of her experiences would more often than not reach a better conclusion than a white male who hasn't lived that life." In a post on Twitter, Gingrich shot back: "Imagine a judicial nominee said 'my experience as a white man makes me better than a Latina woman'" and "new racism is no better than old racism."

I have heard descriptions of her on-the-bench behavior, and then seen video of some of her "pronouncements". In my opinion, she is on the ragged edge, emotionally, and exhibits megalomaniacal tendencies.
I hope that the vetting process includes a Psychiatric/Psychological exam!!
[I think she may have taken lessons from Biden, also] LOL

I lost a commission in 1997 due to a affirmative action policy. I had a BA in chemistry and went to the commisioning board for a B-52 navigators slot. I had worked the Navigation system on this bird for 4 years and flown many time on the flight line. I was overqualified for nav school.
When I went up for the commisioning board, the interview officers were very strange twords me. They asked few questions and ended the board early.
Upon getting back in the unit, I was told they commissioned a admin NCO.
She was a black female who never saw the flight line, did not have her degree yet and had no where near my ribbons, rank or experience.
I protested and was told they had thought I was hispanic because of my last name.....look in my file it clearly statred White not hispanic but thats besides the point.
I was completely qualified she was unqualified. I could teach the Radar nav class, she had never seen a B-52.
She failed out of nav school costing the Air Force lots of cash and time. She still had another chance but never completed her degree in the time frame demanded.
What the fuck.....I will always be bitter about the whole situation.
