As the Sotomayor hearings ramble along toward their pretty much foregone conclusion, certain conservatives, within the hearings and without, attempt to wax eloquent. But, as their credibility fails to match their volume, they begin to make even bigger asses of themselves than ordinarily.



The 10 Dumbest Things Republicans Have Said About the Sotomayor
A list of the most ridiculous questions, jabs and rants by GOP lawmakers and other conservatives.

At her Senate confirmation hearing yesterday, judicial nominee Sonia Sotomayor had to keep a straight face while Republicans heaped shame upon their party with a flood of ridiculous questions, unjustified jabs and pointless rants.


From sexist attacks about Sotomayor's "temperament" to a rigorous interrogation about the definition of nunchucks, GOPers came up with a multitude of embarrassing ways to try to hinder the Supreme Court nominee's confirmation.


The craziness and incompetence on display at the hearings has been more than matched by the absurd smears leveled at Sotomayor in the conservative media. The shining lights of conservatism -- Pat Buchanan, G. Gordan Liddy and Rush Limbaugh -- have outdone themselves with uninformed, offensive rants about the nominee.


AlterNet has compiled the 10 dumbest, most ridiculous statements about Sotomayor to issue from the lips of GOP lawmakers and other conservatives in the past few weeks.
There follows the list.

Now, apart from a little contempt, I don't have a lot in particular against drama queens. In fact, I find them amusing in their mostly pathetic attempts paint them selves heroic and, while I'm a little appalled at these specimens of the genre's blurting of twisted misconceptions, I delight in how easily those twists are untangled. And at some future political cost and embarrassment, I suspect.

After reading the article, and it's quite a good one, I suggest a list of our own; we can call it the Drama Queen Sneer List. Who's your favorite(s) and why?

I'll kick it off with: Rev. Wiley Drake.
