How self destructive is the GOP in 2009 ?

President Obama's first nominee for the Supreme Court Judge Sonia Sotomayor is Hispanic, a long needed first for the Court. The usual rabid dog Republicans are already out in force. 
"She is an activist", " She just is not smart enough", on and on and on. Judge Sotomayer was appointed by President Bush the first and approved by the Senate twice , for two lower Courts. Go for it Grand Old Party, and you will entrench yourself even more as the party of Southern white guys over 40 named LeRoy. Piss off the fastest growing electoral block in the country see how far that gets you.

Add this to the mix "U.S. Rep. Nathan Deal, a Republican candidate for governor of Georgia, has proposed changing the long-standing federal policy that automatically grants citizenship to any baby born on U.S. soil, a move opposed by immigrant rights advocate. That "long standing federal policy" as the AP is calling it, is known in some non caveman circles at the 14th Amendment to the Constitution.
“All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the state wherein they reside.” 

Guess Mr. Deal can get elected with just the LeRoy vote.

I think she's smart enough, but she represents typical Obama Intellectual Diversity: another double-Ivy-leaguer!
