An honest Republican

By Creature

No really, there is one (stop laughing). It's Sen. John Cornyn and he's stepped up to call the recent attacks on Supreme Court nominee Sotomayor "terrible." In response to Gingrich and Limbaugh Cornyn goes on to say:

"Neither one of these men are elected Republican officials. I just don't think it's appropriate. I certainly don't endorse it. I think it's wrong," he said.

Yes, wrong. And while having Cornyn step up is a good start, it's a only a start. It's time for the rest of the GOP and the media to stop taking Sotomayor's quotes out of context and give her the respect a judge of her caliber deserves. I always expected the ugly to come out over any Obama pick, but this week's display has been worse than expected.

  • I'm sorry but Cornyn is not being honest. He represents a state with a huge Hispanic population. He has to say these things to keep power. It's all for selfish reasons. He is a Republican after all.
