Excuse me...

...if this rings just a little bit hollow:

“If there is the perception that somehow she is being treated unfairly or they are distorting her record or comments, I think there will be a backlash in the Latino community,” said Janet Murguía, president of the National Council of La Raza. “All we want is for the process to be respectful and fair. There could be great resentment within the Latino community if it is seen somehow that she is not being treated with the respect due to a Supreme Court nominee.”
Right. Because you were right there to defend Alberto Gonzalez, the nation's first Latino Attorney General, from criticism from the left. You know, because of the respect he deserved. Oh, and when Bush nominated Miguel Estrada to the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals and memos to Dick Durbin mentioned that "liberal interest groups' desire to keep Estrada off the court because his Latino heritage made him 'especially dangerous' as a potential future Supreme Court nominee," I'm sure you were just outraged.


Note also the language about people being "exceedingly careful" about the way they discuss this subject. Even Politico made the connection about the screeching Ari Fleischer provoked when he made a similar remark after 9/11. Will we hear similar screams about fascism descending upon the Republic?

Again, yeah.
