    Now, If it was BACON, you'd not have a problem with the costs involved?

    Grace,

    Why do you have to flaunt the time zone thing? YOU have a few hours of clarity to read, digest and post articles.

    I wake up early every morning and have to kickstart the old brain-you have a head start. Go easy on us Left Coasters?

    Please?

    Oh Sweetie, that was available on the Times website before I went to bed last night. That means it was also available to you, before you went to bed. Remember you get to stay up several hours later than I do

    LOL,

    I'll never win with you!

    I'll peruse the web more often, later on!

  5. Great read Grace....this is my favorite line...

    Coburn maintains that he has immunity from testifying in any Ensign inquiry because he counseled Ensign as “a physician” and an “ordained deacon.” Coburn is an obstetrician and gynecologist, but never mind.
    That is a LOL!

    Thank you for posting the article. I loved it.

    MSNBC just had Elliot Spitzer on. I wonder what he thinks about political humiliation, effing moron.

    --------------------

    Back to the article?


    I refuse to believe that the author can compare a black woman walking thru a cordon of white people yelling and screaming-and very well threatening her with bodily harm - to some hack judge who doesn't show any emotion while she's being grilled by some idiot senators.

    (I have to tell the joke from Red Eye now.....How many senators can fit up the rear of a Supreme Court nominee?)


    As some of the people have posted, thre is no comparison.

    Eckford walked the gaunlet with little protection from the crowd. How dangerous was her walk to get a little education? Do you think that SS was subjected to the same kind of animosity on her walk to a higher paying job?

    EFF NO. She'll ride into that position on Eckford's coattailsand fear.

    That is one of the problems with the bleeding heart bloggers who try to find a common link to people who really were the leading edge of the civil rights/EO fight.

    As an American of Mex descent, I find that her touted as the First Latina SCJ a laugh. She's going to be a judge, so what?

    Why does her 'latina-ness' have to be an issue?

    To use the 'peeing puppy' analogy again?

    She'll be welcomed into the fold by the 'peeing puppy faction'.

    The PPF is the small dog that greets you at the door and is so happy to see you it pees on the floor and all over your shoes. IT does not care about anything thing else other than the fact that you are there. The media and politicians really don't care about this woman and her qualifications, they just want to be seen as the champions of women and race.

    ----------------------

    DO we really want a person that shows no emotion as a SCJ? A wet pile of newspaper also has the same persona, so why not nominate that? I would rather see some passion, not a person who hides who they really are.

    It's like that new BF/GF you think is really cool, until they show up at your house at three a.m. in the morning, asking why you haven't called them in the past 6 hours.

    Nice at first, but effing creepy when you get to know them!

    ----------------------


    Last week a young black gal became the first "Black Woman to solo/fly across the U.S."

    What about the "youngest white boy to circumnavigate the world in a sailboat" from last week?

    The more we "color" the world of news,the more obvious our 'racism' becomes apparent.

    It looks worse in "hi-def".

  8. Damned if you ....damned if you don't....

    Sotomayor was grilled ....are you a hothead? Do you have a short temper? Are you emotional (man speak for have an opinion that is different from mine...)?

    Now we get....

    So if she expressed emotional she is a hothead...if she doesn't she has the same persona as a wet pile of newspapers!

    Some people just LOOK for reasons to knock others!

    Richard, I can't even begin to tell you how much I disagree with your
    statements.

    And that is a good thing. It means that we can agree to disagree and still remain civil and courteous.

    I do appreciate that.

    If I said that I was entitled to my opinion because I was a 'wise Latino male' and can come up with better opinions because of my life experiences, I hope you would give me a hearty "Heigh ho Silver-god, are you full of crap!"

    Why?

    To believe that my "background" makes me smarter or more 'able' to figure things out-did I mention my gender?-is way too phony and elevates my sorry arse above and beyond any real life experiences I have had.

    Can we play a really dishonest game?

    Because you do not agree with my statements I am going to pick a part of my statement and say that you....

    Don't like sailors.
    Don't like white sailors.
    Don't like men/teens.

    That is patently untrue! Unless, I have you on tape saying that do indeed hate seafaring folks!

    Having people yell racial slurs at you, threatening you with bodily harm and other crap to get an education is different that wanking your way thru a cordon of arse kissing politicians is a stretch of reality.

    I have had some experiences with people being 'racially insensitive'-it hasn't made me any smarter. It just reminds me how stupid people are and how stupid I would be if I walked around telling people that my heritage and testicular fortitude make me a better person that anyone else.

    It would not fly for me, so why should I be star struck by some judge that wants to be a bigger judge.

    If I said you misread my comments, that would be a slap in your face.

    So, why should I take that from a "wise Latina woman"?

    She said, she should own it.



    P.S. Everyone lies during a job interview.

    RICHARD is right. Trying to equate the softball questions fielded by Sotomayor to the risk of bodily harm, and possibly death that Mrs Eckford faced is insulting to Mrs Eckford and the equal rights movment, Rev Martin Luther King Jr would be outraged. Mrs Sotomayor "herself deplores metaphor and analogy", yet the writer of the op-ed Liz linked not only ran with it but expounded on it even dissing Clarence Thomas while she was at it. To call what Sotomayor recieved by the commitee a grilling is an insult to sandwiches.

    The person who brought race and sex into the confirmation hearing was Mrs Sotomayor by repeating and standing by her wise latina statement. Ginsburg and O'Connor would repeat the line "at the end of the day, a wise old man and a wise old woman reach the same judgment", I dont see any sexism or racism in that quote.

    I wouldnt wouldnt say she has the same persona as a wet pile of newspapers, but I get RICHARDs point.

    We finaly get a minority, a relatively young one as well, as the POTUS and he makes appointments based on race and sex, not character.

    Your posts about Sarah Palin are very good examples of this type of behavior.

    Hillary, doll?

    Are we to blame for all the global warming?

    I like Kool-Aid on a hot day, but you are apologizing to the world because you THINK we are the bad guys in the Global Warming problem?

    You didn't hook up with Al Gore to get even with Bill, didja?
