Tweet of the Week: Tancredo, La Raza cage match live on CNN


Well, that ought to be a real Frost/Nixon television moment.

CNN host Rick Sanchez’s tweet refers to former U.S. Rep. Tom Tancredo’s shocking assertion that civil rights organization La Raza is “a Latino KKK without the hoods or the nooses” in yet another feeble attempt to brand Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor a racist.

Tancredo’s been on the quite the downward spiral this week dredging up every awful stereotype he can muster to tar Sotomayor who is all but assured Senate confirmation to the Supreme Court.

What I’m still waiting for are the disavowing statements by sane Republican leaders who have no interest in Tancredo, Rush Limbaugh, Newt Gingrich, Glenn Beck and their ilk spewing misogynistic, hate-filled rhetoric on behalf of their rudderless party.
