Harry Reid criticizes GOP senators
Dem. Senator Harry Reid is a perfect example of this double standard. He has been very open about his support for Sotomayor, something the LA Times would applaud him for. This is the same Harry Reid who recently warned that Republicans risk losing votes by opposing Sotomayor (one would think that this sort of party politics-based argument would be deemed petty as well). This is the same Harry Reid who publicly stated that he has never read a single one of Sotomayor's opinions, and if he was lucky, he wouldn't have to. From this we can assume that the Senator knows little to nothing about her actual record. Therefore, he must be doing one of the following:
a. Supporting her because he doesn't want to lose votes.
b. Supporting her because she is a liberal.
c. Blindly supporting her.
And yet, he is the one dishing out criticism. I guess the LA Times would at least give him points for his "intellectual honesty" -admitting that he has no plans to learn anything about the woman he is about to place on the Supreme Court for life.
