Over at Mudrake's blog, Microdot wrote, "I made a typo, it was Senator Inhofe who said she was "too ethnic".He also made caommets [sic] that her love of Puerto Rican cuisine would taint her palate and make her less able to make clear decisions."
I read this and didn't recognize that Microdot was joking --so I thought, why would any politician be guilty of such crude racist humor--or calling someone "too ethnic?" When, in fact, it was in the mind of Microdot to come up with crude racist humor. I don't think I'm the only one who would think Inhofe had really made the crude remarks upon reading Microdot's comment. I doubted it, but to be sure I looked up what Inhofe really said.
What he really said was reasoned and based on her own oft-quoted statements about race and background influencing how she will make judicial decisions. And her statement that appeals courts "make policy." And then she said, in effect, "Ha, ha, of course we don't REALLY make policy--I'm not supposed to say that" --in what the press described as a "light moment."
Well she was honest. Courts DO make policy and they are not supposed to. That's why the Supreme Court decision should have gotten McCain ALL the votes of pro-life supporters.
