Sotomayor is Catholic; But It’s OK with Big Media

Hardly any note is taken of Sotomayor's religion (because she's a liberal), unlike the conservative Catholic nominees, whose religion raised all sorts of alarms.

Here is a good piece on the hypocrisy of it all.
When John Roberts was nominated to be on the high court, Senator Dick Durbin told CNN that he considered it fair game to probe Roberts about his Catholicism. Durbin released a glowing statement yesterday on Sotomayor that never mentioned her religion. When Roberts was questioned by Senator Arlen Specter and Senator Dianne Feinstein, they both asked him whether he agreed with President John F. Kennedy about separation of church and state. Neither even mentioned Sotomayor’s religion in their respective statements yesterday."

Durbin really is Illinois' own version of Eddie Haskell all grown up.

He shifts from doubting Burris, to accepting him, to asking for his resignation in a matter of a few weeks.

I have a weather vane on my garage that is more consistent (and principled) than Durbin.

How does this weak piece 'o c*** get re-elected?

Oh, stupid me, that's right he kisses Daley's ring and stayed out of the way of the new junior Senator making his White House run.
