Judgments

Does your marriage feel safer this Wednesday morning?

Or are you among those who understand that Proposition 8 was nothing more than bigotry with a veneer of religious piety sold to the public as 'traditional values'?

And are you wondering what these fine, moral people are going to dictate next? Thanks to the California Supreme Court, all it takes is a simple majority vote.


Keith Olbermann interviewed Erich 'Mancow' Muller, the conservative radio personality who had himself waterboarded last week. Muller concluded that the procedure was, in fact, torture.

Muller says Sean Hannity called him and said, "It's still not torture."

What's that smell? Oh, yes - it's Hannity talking out of his ass again.


Rep. Tom Tancredo (R-Colorado), levelled sharp criticism at President Obama's nomination of Judge Sonia Sotamayor.

She's racist.

This conclusion is based on a comment Sotamayor made in 2001: "I would hope that a wise Latina woman with the richness of her experiences would more often than not reach a better conclusion (as a judge) than a white male who hasn't lived that life."

In other words, she has the empathic qualities Obama said he was looking for. This is different than how critics are painting the word, mistaking empathy for sympathy. Empathy means I can understand why someone is angry; sympathy means I am moved to feel the same way.
