From all the "mainstream media" this week it does not matter that the Republicans showed themselves to be the party of intolerance during the conformation hearings for Sonia Sotomayor, they still came out on top.
Read this from CNN.com. Every good thing that happens for the Democrats comes with a warning from most of the pundits that they are in danger of doing this or causing that, etc... But a small minority of Republicans can call someone a racist, a communist, or a in cahoots with terrorists and the MSM reports it like it is gospel.
Damned Liberal Media
For the real story behind the Sotomayor hearings go here.
