Sotomayor picks up more GOP support with vote near

WASHINGTON (AP) - Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor picked up more GOP support Wednesday in her drive toward near-certain Senate confirmation this week as the first Hispanic justice, even as a growing chorus of Republicans called her unfit for the bench.

Sen. Kit Bond, R-Mo., became the seventh Republican to announce he’ll vote for President Barack Obama’s nominee, saying he disagrees with some of her rulings and statements but considers her a well-qualified jurist.

“There’s been no significant finding against her, there’s been no public uprising against her,” said Bond, who is retiring. “I will support her, I’ll be proud for her, the community she represents and the American dream she shows is possible.”

Bond’s comments came as Democrats were preparing to declare political victory on Sotomayor’s confirmation, organizing the party’s female senators, Hispanic leaders and civil rights groups, among others, to stress the historic nature of her confirmation.

The Main Stream Media, the MSM, is in serious need of an education. Sotomayor is NOT picking up more GOP support. Sotomayor is picking up more RINO support. RINOs, as in Republican In Name Only, as in, not a Republican at all.

Latino leaders in particular warned that Republicans who opposed Sotomayor would feel political pain from their population, a large and fast-growing segment of the electorate.

This reminds me of an old joke, one that will surely get me labeled a RACIST. Again…

A Cowboy, an American Indian and a Latino were sitting at the bar having a drink.

The American Indian was sitting there feeling very sad. With a tear in his eye, he tossed back a shot and declared, “Once my people were many, now we are few.”

On hearing this, the Latino brightened up and tossed back a shot saying, “Una vez que mi gente era muchas, ahora somos pocos” which translates to, Once my people were few, now we are many.

The old Cowboy tipped his hat back, finished his beer, looked at the Latino and said, “Yeah, well, we ain’t played Cowboys and wetbacks yet”.

I have said it before and I WILL say it again, there is not so much as ONE Republican Senator that is voting FOR Sonia Sotomayor. They are RINOs, a totally useless version of a species known as Dem Lite.

When a nominee is identified specifically by SEX and/or ethnic group, there is a divisive nomination in process.

When a person uses the title some name here - American as a distinctive definition of race or ethnic background, that person is not an American at all. There are NO hyphenated Americans, you are either an AMERICAN or you are not!

ANY GOP Senator that votes FOR the approval of Sonia Sotomayor must be voted out of office and replaced with a REAL Conservative that won’t make a similar mistake again!
