Pretty Much

What BTD said.

It’s really pretty sad, actually.

Also, that would be Mr. Dumbass to you, Blue Texan.

    How do these idjits keep forgetting the damn fact that she was summa cum laude and editor of the law review? Affirmative action might help you get INTO a school, but it’s got nothing to do with how well you do once you’re there.

    Ugh, why do I even bother trying to figure it out?

    But anyone can get summa cum laude. After all, Sarah Palin has foreign policy experience. Wave the magic wand and it is so.

    Now that Franken’s (probably) going to be seated these GOP tantrums are only going to intesify. And that’s a good thing.

    Without diving through a huge pile of wingnuttiness from last year, I’m pretty sure that there were people claiming that Obama only made it through college because of Affirmative Action, willfully ignoring his stint as editor of the law review. So, at least they’re consistent in their idiocy.

    They don’t forget, its just that if they ever admit she did good in school once she got there they are all but conceding that affirmative action works. That is what drives then crazy with her, she is the perfect poster child for why affirmative action is good policy. She, apparently (I assume) would not have been admitted but for she got a break, but once she got that break not only did she prove that the decision to admit her was merited, but she busted her ass (she even had to work double hard to bring her English up to snuff) and did great, so good she basically kicked the ass of nearly every white in her class.

    I though I had read somewhere that he never got admitted on affirmative action and in fact did not complete the boxes indicating his race, and his name is ambiquois (in can be taken as Asian by someone who did not know better). So in a way Obama is the exact opposite of Sonya S. and in effect could be used by the right as a reason you shouldn’t have affirmative action.

    Sad, as in watching the sheer weight of Republican hypocrisy slowly (faster recently) sink them deeper into the quicksand of clownish irrelevance.

    The stuff of backward thinking cannot be put back into the bottle of Lady Liberty. Freedom marches on when the light of justice burns bright and freedom will always find a way.

    Excuse me. I made myself throw up a little.

    @dmsilev: They sure did. The wingunt sites I read demanded his Columbia transcript, SAT scores, LSAT scores, and Harvard grades to prove he wasn’t an “affirmative action” pick

    I believe the problem with the Republicans is that when they hear that someone was in the law review, they think back to their own experiences in mandatory English, History, Geography, and Civics review classes.

    You know, the ones after school and during the summer.

    I have to say, watching this play out must be kind of hard for John as a former Republican. Watching Republicans go after Sotomayor for not legislating from the bench must be like looking into a mirror looking into a mirror looking into a crack pipe. What the hell?

    I think we’ve found the person who does all the wingnut fact checking.

    “Wingnut” and “fact checking”. Quickly becoming the newest oxymoron.

    @slag:

    Being Republican means being against things, except when they work in your favor, then you are for them.

    It’s pretty simple. Elegant, and simple. This is why Dema-crats are always on the defensive, their policies are too complicated.

    Yeah, these white guys with axes to grind are getting tiresome.

    Wait… getting? Sorry. Still trying to get to YouTube …

    No shit. Every time I see one of those fat Republican bastards I think “OK, enough. I’m 5’11” and weigh 270 pounds and I need to spend the next three months eating nothing but Coke Zero, Vivarin and amphetamines while spending four hours a day riding my bike so I can lose weight so people won’t think I’m a Republican”. OK, this might kill me, but at least I’ll be slim when I die, and probably on my bike, so people won’t be saying “Hey, look another fat, disgusting Republican slob who dropped dead of a heart attack or choked to death on a Krispy Kreme or something.”
