With regards to Sonia Sotomayor, Karl Rove said, “I’m not really certain how intellectually strong she would be, she has not been very strong on the second circuit.”
Bob Cesca’s Awesome Blog is all over it. First:
The Republicans -- the party of George W. Bush and Sarah Palin -- are attacking Sonia Sotomayor's intellect.
Suddenly intellectualism is important for a party that thinks the jury is still out on, you know, science. The party that ran several candidates for president who, when asked about it in a televised debate, admitted that they don't "believe" in evolution -- essentially embracing the creationist notion that the Earth is 5,000 years old.
He then offers some pretty funny clips with Republican Intelligence on display. I highly recommend the first two as well as Hannity calling Halloween liberal because it teaches kids to ask for handouts. Ugh.
