Judicial "empathy": It's OK...if you're a white guy!!!
So says Sen. Tom Coburn (R-OK), who is so batshit crazy, he actually believes abortion providers should be put to death for performing procedures that are perfectly legal.
Think about that logic for a minute.
Coburn also opposes abortion in cases of rape. Lovely.
Anyway, he thought it was admirable that Samuel Alito, a white guy, had empathy for those with backgrounds like his own, but is horrified by the same notion as it applies to Sonia Sotomayor, a Hispanic woman.
This is your Republican party, folks!
