Right Wing Round-Up

  • Steve Benen is not overly impressed with Newt Gingrich’s “apology” for calling Sonia Sotomayor “racist.”
  • On a related note, Greg Sargent reports that Rush Limbaugh says he’s not retracting any of the things that he has said about her.
  • Media Matters says the media is ignoring Sen. Jeff Sessions’ double standard on timing of Sotomayor’s confirmation hearing.
  • I’m late in linking to this post by Autumn Sandeen over at Pam’s House Blend regarding Mission America’s founder Linda Harvey’s over-the-top response to news that Kevin Jennings has been tapped as the Department of Education Office of Safe and Drug-Free Schools’ deputy secretary.
  • As Good As You notes, I doubt this was the result that OneNewsNow had in mind when it put up its latest on-line poll.
