Rush Limbaugh Stands By His Convictions


LIMBAUGH: If I could be convinced that Sonia Sotomayor might be the biggest hope for overturning Roe v. Wade down the line, then I might be persuaded to look at her nomination in a different light... She would be the sixth Catholic on the Supreme Court. … She’s a Catholic, a devout Catholic, she hasn’t got a record on [abortion] … I can see a possibility of supporting this nomination if I can be convinced that she does have a sensibility towards life.
This is the same Rush Limbaugh (ugh, imagine if there were more than one?) who called Sotomayor a racist, insisted that her nomination be withdrawn and called for GOP opposition.

Apparently in Limbaugh’s view, when judges allow their religious backgrounds to directly influence their rulings in ways conservatives view favorably, it’s blind justice. When judges remark that being a minority can give individuals perspective on the impact of their rulings, it’s racism.

Consistent! Just like the hoopla over the New Haven firefighters amounts to a demand for judicial activism.

He said he can look past her racism if she's pro life!He proves once again that when it comes to morals and principles he has neither.He just admitted he would throw those New Haven firefighters under yhe bus if she were pro life.
I guarantee you if he were to take that viagra he got caught with and impregnated that disillusional woman he allegedly lives with,he would change his views on abortion.
