Senator Cornyn gets a pat on the back by the LA Times!

Yesterday, I posted about Senator John Cornyn's criticism of Conservatives who are calling Sonia Sotomayor a racist. I took the Senator to task for thinking Republicans can, by being nicer, get a fair shake from the media or from Democrats.

Well, Senator, I hate to say I told ya so, but, as Hot Air is reporting, it did not take long for my words of advice to ring true.

Today the Los Angeles Times lies to its readers about Sen. John Cornyn’s statements on “This Week with George Stephanopoulos.” Here’s what the L.A. Times says:

Only days earlier, Cornyn said in a radio interview that it was
“terrible” for conservatives to be attacking Sotomayor as a “racist.” But today, the senator did not reiterate those
sentiments and pledged that he and other Republican lawmakers would probe deeply into Sotomayor’s past comments and rulings to see if her heritage colors her ability to make fair decisions.


The hell he did. Yes, he said Republicans would closely
examine her record. But he never said that Republicans would seek to learn whether her
“heritage” would affect her ability to be a fair judge. In essence, the paper is saying, Republicans are concerned that Sotomayor might be a poor judge because she is a Latina. That is an outrageous distortion of Cornyn’s comments.



See where playing nice got you Senator? It got you, and every other Republican, accused of being a racist. It got your statements completely and absurdly distorted! Like I said before, the Left is going to throw accusations at us no matter what we say or do.

  2. Is it Laura Ingraham or Michelle Malkin who says, "There's the evil party and the stupid party" ? (Guess which is which.)

  3. I would like to see his actual statement versus the journalist's paraphrase: "pledged that he and other Republican lawmakers would probe deeply into Sotomayor’s past comments and rulings to see if her heritage colors her ability to make fair decisions." I wonder whether Cornyn used the word "heritage" in his original statement.

    Since when is reviewing a candidate's past comments & rulings considered either racist or crypto-racist? Is Reid trying to prove that he's an ├╝ber-nonracist by eschewing reading anything that Sotomayor wrote?
