Quote of the Day

Hilzoy, on silly reaction to the Sotomayor pick:

Paul at PowerLine headlines his post “Che Guevara In Robes”. I’ve been trying to think of something Sotomayor and Che have in common besides being Hispanic, but I’m coming up dry. But that’s nothing compared to Mike Huckabee thinking her first name is Maria. Any moment now, I suppose someone will ask how we know she’s in this country legally.

She Kidnapped Herself!

Yes, of course. My bullshit detector started pinging as soon as I heard the “victim” was blaming the whole thing on the proverbial “unidentified black males,” although I suppose it was fishy to suggest that both the mother and daughter had been stuffed into the trunk of a car at 2 in the afternoon at a busy intersection without anyone noticing.
