On Fox News Channel this morning, Sen. Claire McCaskill dutifully read her “compelling personal story” talking points and hyped Sonia Sotomayor’s compelling personal background while whitewashing her legal record. (RCP Video has the clip here.)

Incredibly, McCaskill was not aware that Sotomayor had said “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.”

When FNC anchor Jane Skinner asked her about Sotomayor’s words, McCaskill tried to claim that someone else had made the statement.

Is Sen. McCaskill that clueless or that deceitful?

The Democrat senator went out to claim that the Supreme Court has no members who have grown up in poverty and overcome extreme hardships.

“That’s something new,” McCaskill argued.

I suggest she read Justice Clarence Thomas’s memoir before she open her mouth again.

Once again, Democrats send the identity politics-marinated message that the experiences and “compelling personal stories” of minorities don’t count if those minorities stray from the liberal plantation.

Celebrate diversity — as long as you pledge allegiance to the Left for life.


Drinking game: If you take a shot every time you hear the phrase “compelling life story” today, you should be out by lunch.

The Anchoress rips the Lifestyle Network-flavored coverage of the SCOTUS announcement today.
