Rush Compares Sotomayor to Housekeepers With Vaccuum Cleaners

Nothing like heaping a scoop of sexism on top of a large dollop of racism.  I’m guessing all those Cuban-American Republicans in Florida are loving all this racist stereotyping trash coming out of the GOP’s mouth.  One can play the wild-card on the general Hispanic/ Latino voter in this country as voting either way – Democratic or Republican.  But with this kind of gunk painting Sotomayor as a racist, as a sexist, and trash-talking with Ricky Ricardo impersonations, the Hispanic/Latino vote is pretty-much a solid win for the Dems.

Rudy Giuliani’s campaign going down? Say it isn’t so!

RudyNow this can’t be good. His campaign staffers are waving their need for a paycheck while Rudy waits for that special “blow-out” election in Florida. Says the Mpls Strib:

About a dozen senior campaign staffers for Rudy Giuliani are forgoing their January paychecks, aides said Friday, a sign of possible money trouble for the Republican presidential candidate.

“We have enough money, but we could always use more money,” contended Mike DuHaime, Giuliani’s campaign manager and one of those who now is working for free. “We want to make sure we have enough to win.”

Doesn’t look good, huh? Check this out farther down the column:

The former New York mayor has yet to win a contest and is counting on a victory in delegate-rich Florida to prove his candidacy is viable heading into the multistate contests slated for Feb. 5, where he believes he can prevail in states like California and Illinois.

It’s a costly strategy because Florida and states that follow it are home to some of the most expensive media markets in the country. With so many states voting in such a narrow time period, candidates can do little else but rely on paid media to get their message out.

What do you want to bet that Rudy Giuliani has embezzled “all of that cash” and funneled it directly into his consulting company, Giuliani Partners? In six moths to a year from now, we’re going to have a headline reading:FruitFly

“Financial woes at Giuliani Partners: IRS expected to file indictments today”

…And it’ll be all about this money that came into the company right around this time and we’ll have forgotten all about his campaign staffers who’ve waved getting paid in order to see him elected President of the United States.
