There are plenty of stories today about Sotomayor’s confirmation in the Senate. About this historic jurist. Obama’s choice. The important cases before the court this term. Even Senator Al Franken making the announcement to the Senate. Let’s not let this moment pass without acknowledging those self-serving, anti-justice, anti-competent, anti-any-success-for-President-Obama, anti-women, anti-Hispanic, and anti-anything Senators from the South. Drop them a note and tell them what you think. Drop by their homes during the recess a lob a few eggs*. Drop by a public event and cough on them*. Do something. These men disgrace the South.
Southern NAY sayers:
* Strictly metaphorical suggesting. I do not advocate the use of violence. However, perhaps toilet paper could make the point.
