Gingrich, Sotomayor and Hunting Giraffes

Republican poobah Newt Gingrich has lambasted Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor as a ‘racist’ because she implied that a Latina woman could empathize with certain situations as a judge better than a white male could, and so would come to sounder judgments.

Just so everyone remembers, this is Newt Gingrich’s idea of the difference between the sexes:

‘ If combat means living in a ditch, females have biological problems staying in a ditch for 30 days because they get infections…. Males are biologically driven to go out and hunt giraffes.’

I rest Judge Sotomayor’s case.
