Douchebag of the Week
Mark Krikorian, who rages against the "unnatural" pronunciation Judge Sonia Sotomayor's name. Sotomayor, as you know, is President Obama's Supreme Court nominee.
This is typical of the substance of the RWNM attacks against Sotomayor. It's nothing more than a thinly veiled attempt to make her seem foreign, different, not "one of us." For the record, the Bronx is not a foreign country, so she's not foreign. But the Right clearly isn't shy about exploiting xenophobia, even fake xenophobia.
And it's also standard operating procedure for the Right: Throw as much shit as possible at the wall, no matter how loony and ridiculous, and see what, if anything, sticks. Something tells me this dipshit's ramblings about dipthongs isn't going to be it.
