I Personally Love Hispanic People…

In which The Rude Pundit reminds us of how dewy-eyed the affirmative activists of the GOP got over Torture Boy Gonzales:

Here’s what Senate Judiciary Committee member Orrin “Still Crazy After All These Years” Hatch said back in 2005 about the opposition to Alberto Gonzales when the White House counsel was nominated to be Attorney General:

“Look, this is not just any nomination. This is a nomination for the Attorney General of the United States of America. This is the first Hispanic ever nominated for that position, or for any of the big four positions in the Cabinet of any President... I personally love Hispanic people. Frankly, I know my friends in the Hispanic community, and Hispanic people all over America, are watching this debate, and they are sensing something very unfair going on here…”

Of course, that was way back when, eh? A couple of weeks ago, in response to a remark by Judge Sonia Sotomayor that “the court of appeals is where policy is made,” Hatch said that it was “a problem... She would have, I think, a more difficult time if she was nominated because of statements like that... I’m not very happy about judges who will substitute their own policy preferences for what the law really is, who think that they can run the country from the bench when they actually have a limited role.”

Man, it’d be awesome to live with no self-awareness…

I've held the opinion that one has to be somewhat intelligent to go crazy. In that light, Hatch doesn't qualify. He's just brain-dead.
