I'm no fan of Newt Gingrich but...

His comment on Sotomayor is right on:

"Imagine a judicial nominee said 'my experience as a white man makes me better than a latina woman.' new racism is no better than old racism,"

When will people learn that two wrongs don't make a right?

UPDATE on June 3, 2009:

And now Newt folds up like a cheap tent in a high wind and backs off his comments.

I have long believed that the only people who cannot make remarks that touch on race, without being labeled racists, are white males. Seems like we are fair game for anybody with a big mouth and small brain. But let one of us say anything that even broaches the subject, no matter how accurate or timely, and you have Jesse and Al up your ass.
