POLITICS: Use Sotomayor as a proxy for Affirmative Action

*** begin quote ***

Republican senators should use this Sotomayor nomination to put affirmative action in the dock for what it is – race-based bigotry against white males so that persons of color can receive the rewards of society that they could not win in free and fair competition.

Lay out the Sotomayor record – SAT scores, LSAT scores, bar exam score, law review articles and her opinions – so that we can see up close what those who eviscerated Robert Bork regard as academic and judicial excellence.

No need for name-calling.

Sorry, but in a lifetime job, we need the best.

Objectively, best. Not Subjectively.

We need to consign “Affirmative Action” to a time past when racism, even reverse racism, is unacceptable.

Something about “content of character; not the color their skin.”
