Apparently not, according to Scott Ott:
(2009-06-05) — Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor said today that “if President Obama were a wise Latina woman, with the richness of her experiences, he would have picked a less controversial court nominee.”
Judge Sotomayor said she doesn’t blame the president for his unwise choice, “after all, as a black male, he can’t be expected to demonstrate much more wisdom than he has so far. He’s certainly sharper than a white male, but the fact remains that he’s male, and has no discernible Latino heritage.” [snip]
President Obama said he would not comment further on the controversy, “since matching wits with a Latina woman is above my pay grade.”
Heh™ Nobody does it like Scrappleface.
(I’m still chuckling about the Kerry-Smart video).
This is the World Famous Friday Open Thread: A wise, smart, free-speech zone.
WFFOT: The interesting thing about being wise and being smart is that you can add a three letter word to each of them and come up with a synonym for “audacious” (a word which coincidently was used to decribe BHO).
And, just in case your remorse hasn’t kicked into high gear yet, and you don’t feel badly enough for pointing out Sonia’s ethnic boasting, and the hypocrisy of the PC crowd, trot on over to TPM and read the guilt-fest by Rowan Wolf.
