I've been trying to keep up on the Sonia Sotomayor hearings. And though they lack some drama, this really upset me:
“You’d have lots of ’splaining to do,” Senator Coburn replied, to a hypothetical situation Sotomayor raised over gun rights.
Seriously? I know he was trying to invoke Desi Arnaz, and be humorous, but it is still incredibly condescending. Why isn't an elected official held to a higher standard? It's racist.
Also: This cover is...a nightmare. Since hispanics aren't stereotypically wise, what other minority can we portray her as?
