Newt Gingrich has joined Rush Limbaugh in denouncing Sonia Sotomayor as a racist:
newtgingrich Imagine a judicial nominee said "my experience as a white man makes me better than a latina woman" new racism is no better than old racism

newtgingrich White man racist nominee would be forced to withdraw. Latina woman racist should also withdraw.

Gingrich is referring to these remarks:
"I would hope that a wise Latina woman with the richness of her experiences would more often than not reach a better conclusion than a white male who hasn't lived that life," Sotomayor argued.
