Sexism? Check.

Holy cats. You know how the lunatic Right has decided that the best way to address the Sotomayor nomination is to flip the Latino population the rhetorical bird? It appears that G. Gordon Liddy has decided to raise the stakes a bit by... seriously, I am at a loss to come up with a way to describe the following:
...G. Gordon Liddy ... took to the radio yesterday with this sentiment, "Let's hope that the key conferences aren't when [Sotomayor]'s menstruating or something, or just before she's going to menstruate. That would really be bad. Lord knows what we would get then."

He also said she--a American born New Yorker whose parents came from the U.S. territory of Puerto Rico--"is a member of La Raza, which means in illegal alien, 'the race.'"

Nice touch with the "illegal alien" there, Gord. Because all illegal aliens speak Spanish, and all Spanish are illegal aliens. Neato.

But do my eyes deceive me? Is the Lid really dragging out that whole "women are soooooo irrational during that time" trope? Because the word "hoary" springs to mind. Also "jaw-dropping," "appalling" and "unbelievable."

Good thing Sarah Palin didn't get the Veep spot, huh? Because if McCain had croaked, God only knows who she'd have nuked during visits from Aunt Flo. Am I right, G. Gordon?

  1. I dunno Dan, this is G. Gordon Liddy we are talking about, he has been insane for the better part of 40 years now and is what, pushing 80. I simply amazed that anyone pays the slightest attention to him anymore, except maybe on shock jock radio shows.


  2. Fair enough. Hence my description as "lunatic" Right.
