This is pretty rich — both for Sen. Sessions (R-AL) and CNN for taking his line at face value. Sessions is saying he can feel Sonia Sotomayor’s pain over being called a ‘racist’ since he was called a ‘racist’ too. Of course, in Sessions’ case, it was for persecuting civil rights workers and calling an African-American employee “boy” and telling him to be respectful when talking to whites. But, hey, same difference, right?
Late Update: When I first did this post it was in reference to the online story CNN posted. Later though we saw this video version of the same story.
