Watching Sotomayor

Lindsey Graham - STFU.

Jeff Sessions - STFU.

Pretty much every Republican on that whole fucking committee?





That's what I keep coming back to. There are so many individual moments I could talk about, but I'm sure most of you are watching and you have already seen them. Just so much white male privilege at work it's sickening. Paternalism, condescension, disrespect, and just flat out total lack of listening.

Given all this bullshit and Sotomayor's handling it with such evenness and patience, when we got to the "temperament" stuff it was HILARIOUS. I'm not caught up yet, but I'm guessing it's going to be more of the same.
