"Republicans will call two New Haven firefighters to testify in the confirmation hearings of Sonia Sotomayor next week, making clear the GOP's intent to place affirmative action at the center of Senate battle over Sotomayor's nomination."
Yeah, these two guys will really contribute substance to a discussion about the United States Supreme Court. But more importantly, Sotomayor is all but guaranteed confirmation. So why are the Republicans making a big show of a divisive race issue? Oh yeah. They're race-baiters and they're rolling out the Southern Strategy again. Got it.
