The leader of the GOP and president of Real America, Rush Limbaugh, may have changed his mind about Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor, if she's lucky. (Incidentally, how did this woman become a Supreme Court nominee? President Limbaugh didn't nominate her. Must've been an administrative mix-up.)
Here's your conditional pardon, "Ms." "Sotomayor"…
A week after calling Sonia Sotomayor a "racist" in reference to her 2001 "wise Latina" remarks, conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh said Wednesday he's now open to supporting President Obama's Supreme Court nominee.
"I can see a possibility of supporting this nomination if I can be convinced that she does have a sensibility toward life in a legal sense," Limbaugh said on his radio program.
The standard in these cases is usually clear and convincing evidence, but for something this important it will probably be bumped up to reasonable doubt, so I hope Sotomayor's defense team is ready to persuade Supreme Court Justice Limbaugh…
Meanwhile, Obama officials have said the president has not directly asked Sotomayor how she might rule in abortion rights cases, but California Democrat Dianne Feinstein — who met with Sotomayor Tuesday — said that the judge believes strongly in legal precedent.
"I believe she has a real respect for precedent and … if that is really true then I will agree with her, and I believe it is," said Feinstein, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee.
Good for you, but I'm not sure if I care. Who the hell is Dianne Feinstein, anyway? Is she on Sirius?
