Eugene Robinson on the Sotomayor Hearings
This article by Eugene Robinson in the Washington Post is excellent. It points out that the white male Republicans asking Judge Sotomayor questions are asking them as if being white and male is the default standard, the "natural order of things" and that identity politics only come into play for them if you are NOT white and male.
