Lindsey Graham on Sotomayor

By Creature

“I believe she [Sotomayor] does have the intellectual capacity, but there is a character problem, there is a temperament problem,” - Sen. Lindsey Graham

With the Sotomayor nomination all but certain to go through, I do not see the point in making character assassinations against a future supreme court justice. This is purely playing base politics at a time the GOP needs to move beyond their base. The fundamental misunderstanding of this fact by the GOP continues to blow my mind.

And, yes, if Sotomayor were a man Lindsey Graham would surely not be making such statements [see Scalia, Cheney, MCCain]. Tone deaf much, Senator.
