(AUDIO) GOP Chairman Steele On Sotomayor: “God Help You If You’re A White Male Coming Before Her Bench”

June 5, 2009

The left side of the Blogosphere is freaking out over recent comments made by GOP Chairman Michael Steele (Audio below):

Steele might be wrong and he may have even crossed a line in his rhetoric, but it is undeniable that her statements have left room to wonder. That should be seen as a problem by any reasonable standard.

    I am a Democrat. I am the wife of a very compassionate, empathetic white man. I am the mother of a white son who is keen to follow the rules and has friends of all heritages.

    To paraphrase Garafalo: Sotamayor is a racist on the rocks.

    i, personally, don’t see any line crossed by steele. & certainly not when considering sortamayo’s own ridiculous statement which was the catalyst here.

    sortamayo’s assertion that she will reach a better conclusion than her white male colleagues demonstrates not only an arrogant self-righteousness, but also a categorical ignorance of the role of the federal judiciary. she believes that her opinions of cultural & social justice trump an understanding of the U.S. constitution.

    !

    given her statement, how is it inappropriate to wonder publicly what a white male would face before her bench?

    she is fool, & as such, a dangerous element of an already dangerous administration.

    Who cares if Steele crossed the line? At least he was pointed in the right direction, for once.
