G. Gordon Liddy On Sotomayor: ‘Let’s Hope That The Key Conferences Aren’t When She’s Menstruating’

I am sure that Obama chose Sotomayer because he feels she is the right person to take up that position. However, had he chosen her to expose the extreme racism and rampant sexism of his Republican opponents, he simply couldn't have made a better choice.

The nuttery that they have been engaging in is simply second to none. I thought Tancredo's, "I don't know whether the Obama administration hates white people" remark would be hard to beat but, give it to G. Gordon Liddy, he has managed to vault even that piece of insanity and come out with this little cracker:

LIDDY: Let’s hope that the key conferences aren’t when she’s menstruating or something, or just before she’s going to menstruate. That would really be bad. Lord knows what we would get then.
And this was after he referred to the Spanish language as "illegal alien":
LIDDY: I understand that they found out today that Miss Sotomayor is a member of La Raza, which means in illegal alien, “the race.” And that should not surprise anyone because she’s already on record with a number of racist comments.
The Republican party, I am told, need to improve their standing amongst women and Latino voters. I wonder why women and Latinos don't feel they are speaking for them?
