MSNBC is great for comic relief sometimes, isn’t it?

Forget about the insult to Catholics, folks like this don’t see people as people. They are categorizeable entities. That’s it. Listen to what New York magazine’s contributing editor Chris Smith says about Sotomayor: “Here’s a trifecta: Latin, female, American. It would do a lot of good.”

Whether you like her or not, Sotomayor is a woman of accomplishment. He says she’s Latin and a woman. That’s who she is to MSNBC analysts.
