Frank Rich on the Sotomayor confirmation hearings. Priceless, peerless.

Brilliant. As a member of the new minority in America (heterosexual white male), it's refreshing to see a superficial member of the old guard (50+ white male) who embraces the truth and joy of our future while that group who look like him but think and behave like creatures of the past spin themselves in the circles of their death throes without even fucking realizing it.

If the American public is too busy playing Guitar Hero to notice I don't care. We'll get a progressive thinker--and more importantly, behaver--and I'll be thankful for that.

Thanks for the post, Tom.

Guitar Hero is for chumps, BTW. Sousaphone Martyr is the only way to go!
