Standing With Sotomayor

We've done a few posts on the nomination of Appeals Circuit Court Judge Sonia Sotomayor (Here, Here, and Here), noting that the Flying Monkeys of the Right Wing Freak Show are in a tizzy, and unloading their smears on Judge Sotomayor.

Well, it seems that a group, supporting Judge Sotomayor, has popped up, and David Neiwert, on Crooks and Liars, has the details.

We Stand With Sonia Sotomayor

The Right is throwing every little bit of ugliness they can at Sonia Sotomayor in hopes of derailing her nomination to the Supreme Court.

They've called her a racist. They've compared the National Council of La Raza to the Ku Klux Klan. They've called her a "lightweight" and "anti-white." They've suggested she lacks the right temperament, since she's just another stereotypical hot-blooded Latina. They've even suggested she's unfit to be a judge because she menstruates.

OK, we get it, fellas. The kid gloves are off.
