Dems Ask Diaz-Balart to Repudiate Gingrich's "Racist" Sotomayor Tweet
If you thought some of the things that came out of Newt Gingrich's mouth were ridiculous, wait until you get a load of his Twitter. The former speaker tried on his best Tom Tancredo impersonation and Tweeted out this:
"Imagine a judicial nominee said 'my experience as a white man makes me better than a Latina woman' new racism is no better than old racism....White man racist nominee would be forced to withdraw. Latina woman racist should also withdraw."
The whole idea that Sotomayor is an out and out racist for her comments is so ridiculous, and Tim Wise really expresses it better than I ever could.
