Gingrich calls Sotomayor a racist. Bloomberg, Klein and Sharpton welcome him as an education reformer.
Who was surprised that former GOP Speaker of the House and son of the Confederacy would attack Supreme Court Nominee Sonia Sotomayor on the basis that she’s a Puerto Rican woman who has a history of ruling in favor of equal rights?
But how ironic that just a week ago the same Gingrich was welcomed to speak at the rally sponsored by the Education Equality Project, the self-named education reformers organized by NY Mayor Bloomberg, NY school chief Joel Klein and the Reverend Al Sharpton. This group also counts among its supporters the EdSec himself, Arne Duncan.
I’m sure Gingrich felt right at home with this bunch. And they with him?
