Media Matters, the liberal blogging site that monitors conservative dialogue, is the first we know of to post audio on Rush Limbaugh’s judgment today on Sonia Sotomayor, President Barack Obama’s nominee to the U.S. Supreme Court.
“Do you think we should go to the mat stopping Sotomayor? Do you think we ought to go to the wall to oppose her? And I said, “Absolutely we should.” Once again an opportunity to draw the distinct contrast that exists between conservatives and those in the Republican party to President Obama.
“I doubt that Sotomayor can be stopped. She should be — she is a horrible pick. She is the antithesis of a judge. By her own admission and in her own words, she has been overturned 80 percent by the Supreme Court. She may as well be on the Ninth Circus Court of Appeals given all the times she’s been overturned…..”
And in another clip:
“Here you have a racist. You might want to soften that and you might want to say a reverse racist.
“And the libs of course say, the minorities cannot be racists, because they don’t have the power to implement their racism. Well, those days are gone, because reverse racists certainly do have the power to implement their power.
“Obama is the greatest living example of a reverse racist, and now he’s appointed one -— you getting this, AP? -— Sonia Sotomayor, to the U.S. Supreme Court.”
