WILL THE RIGHT LINK SOTOMAYOR TO AL QAEDA?
I'm serious. From Politico, on the New Haven firefighter case:
Conservatives ... plan to build an emotional -- and political -- face for their cause by characterizing the firefighters as victims of Sotomayor's judicial overreach and insensitivity.
"Reverse discrimination is something Americans understand; it polls," said one conservative activist. "These are blue-collar guys who were called in on Sept. 11. They were at the ruins of a terrorist attack."
Someone on the right will tell us that she doesn't want the best-qualified firefighters to respond to the next 9/11. We'll be told that in the event of the next 9/11, if it were up to her, the terrorists would kill more of us.
Really. This will be said.
