Supreme Court Nominee Sotomayor: You Read, You Decide

Not long a go Newt Gingrich called Sonia Sotomayor a racist over her “a wise Latina better than a wise white person” (yeah I know it is roughly paraphrased). I agreed that the Sotomayor comment was a racist comment.

The Left went into its usual conniption fits over anyone daring to call a fellow Leftist a racist. I was a little surprised to read that many Conservative politicians were coming down on Newt for such strong language. It is as if the Republicans are afraid to rock the Obamasiah boat.

So Newt has been raked over the coals by his own yet with a caveat. The caveat being Newt was to strong and that Sotomayor should apologize or at least make up an excuse for her Latina wiser than white guy comments.

Since Newt is a good politician he gave a recant on the Sotomayor is a racist barb yet with his own caveat.

Read Newt’s “yeah but”:
