Kay now not weighing in on Sotomayor?

Earlier this week, Kay said that Sotomayor's comments were "troubling" (link) but she seems to be changing that stance...

Now she is refusing to weigh in on comments Sotomayor made that many are calling racist (link). Excerpt follows...

Hutchison, speaking Friday at Dallas Baptist University, said she would not respond to the comments made by Limbaugh and Gingrich. Fellow Texas Republican Sen. John Cornyn has strongly repudiated the allegation of racism.

Hutchison, who voted against confirming Sotomayor in 1998 to be a judge on the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Manhattan, said Friday that she's going to give the Supreme Court nominee a fresh look.

Hutchison has said that the 1998 vote was about Sotomayor's judicial activism as a district court judge.

But on Friday, noting Sotomayor's 11 years of subsequent judicial experience, Hutchison said it's her responsibility to review Sotomayor's opinions. Senators must vote to confirm Sotomayor's nomination by President Barack Obama.

"I'm going to look at her entire record," Hutchison said before her appearance at Dallas Baptist University.

Is Sotomayor a reverse racist?

Yes and she is going to sit on the bench for many years and make a lot of really radical decisions.

Kay should come out and speak up about Sotomayor's disrespect for private property rights, her love of affirmative action, her belief that courts make policy, her wretched reversal rate, her radical agenda, and say why she was troubled in the first place. Why did she vote against her a decade ago? I don't get this sudden lack of a position from Kay on Sotomayor. Have Republicans conceded this battle as a win for Obama? Are Kay's handlers not letting her say anything bad because Sotomayor is Latina? Believe me when I say that Republicans of minority ancestry are probably more hard on liberals like Sotomayor than white Republicans are. Kay voting for her would be a slap in the face to a lot of us. 

Trust me on this one. 

I have said it a few times here already, but if Kay votes for Sotomayor, she will lose the primary right then and there.

Hey now, campaign characters. Be nice. I know a lot of you on both sides, so I don't want any overly foul language, personal attacks on anyone other than the candidates themselves, or other party fouls. I will moderate the heck out of you if you start breaking the bounds of civility.
