>Breaking news: Republicans diss Hispanics

It’s difficult to do.”

Nothing you do makes us proud, Senator. Including, well, you know.

Earlier nominee Sotomayor had addressed the Wise Latina comment…

She is sailing through the process, but it is still informative to watch. I don’t have time to watch it all, but it sure is interesting.
