Sotomayor Praises Affirmative Action

A quick trip around Hannity's America...

Where She Stands

Apparently being the beneficiary of reverse discrimination is a matter of pride for Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor. Included in some of the materials recently submitted to Congress for the confirmation process is a tape of Judge Sotomayor singing the praises of affirmative action. Take a look:

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

JUDGE SONIA SOTOMAYOR, SUPREME COURT JUSTICE NOMINEE: I am a product of affirmative action. I am the perfect affirmative action baby. I am a Puerto Rican born and raised in the south Bronx. My test scores were not comparable to that of my colleagues at Princeton and Yale, not so far off the mark that I wasn't able to succeed at those institutions.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Did you say editor of the "Yale Law Journal"?

(LAUGHTER)

(END VIDEO CLIP)

So much for Dr. King's aspirations, that future generations would be judged, not by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.

Judge Sotomayor seems to disagree.

Pelosi's Fantasyland

The San Francisco speaker took to the podium for her weekly press conference Thursday morning. The press, of course, chose not to ask her about accusations that the CIA lied to her. Instead they let her ramble on and on and on about just how fiscally responsible the Democratic Party is when all they're doing is bankrupting the U.S. This is amazing. Take a look:

SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE NANCY PELOSI, D-CALIF.: But now happily Democrats are coming together around this concept.

LIBERAL TRANSLATION: Spending without adding to the deficit... it was a TOUGH sell for my fellow Democrats.

PELOSI: For many years it has been the central organizing purpose of the Blue Dogs -- fiscal discipline, fiscal responsibility.

LIBERAL TRANSLATION: Unlike the rest of the Democratic Party.

PELOSI: And -- but I want you to know that their initiatives from all sectors of our caucus which support pay as you go.

LIBERAL TRANSLATION: Mostly because none of them know what it actually means.

PELOSI: Early this year, in February, I sent a letter to our colleagues, the chairs of the committees, to ask them to subject everything under their scrutiny, under their jurisdiction to the harshest scrutiny to find savings.

LIBERAL TRANSLATION: It's going to take a lot of scrutiny to pay for President Obama's $1.2 trillion health care "plan."

What a ground-breaking concept, spending only money you actually have. A 10-year-old may be able to grasp that, but I don't have a lot of faith in Congress. Do you?

Hail to the Chief!

Tonight's "Media Mash" is brought to you by Brian Williams. Mr. Williams host add two-part special last week, "Inside the Obama White House." His good friend, President Obama, granted him special access to the place, and during his time there Mr. Williams proved that he's been watching and learning from the president because he mimicked one of President Obama's patented gestures.

Look at this.

Nice one, Brian. I bet the president was really impressed by your great bowing technique.

Fill It Up Again

They always say that history repeats itself, and that is definitely the case for actor Danny DeVito. A few years back he left everyone stunned after his drunken appearance on the show "The View" that included an expletive-laced rant on President Bush.

DeVito blamed his antics on a night of drinking with George Clooney -- that can make anyone nuts. Well, guess what? He's at it. DeVito was recently interviewed by FOX 29 in Philadelphia, this time with a beer in hand. Look at this:

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

DANNY DEVITO, ACTOR: Remember you had the belly, and I was thinking about what that would look like when that kid was born.

FOX REPORTER: And she's cute.

DEVITO: And she's cute when she keeps coming out like, you know?

FOX REPORTER: Yes, uh-huh, of course.

DEVITO: You get the picture of the legs and the head coming out like.

FOX REPORTER: That's enough of that. I had to wear extra high shoes because you're the only man I can look down to.

DEVITO: Well, that's good.

FOX REPORTER: At three feet tall.

DEVITO: Did you wear that short skirt?

FOX REPORTER: I sure did, Danny. OK. Here's the thing.

DEVITO: The access?

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Oh wow, morning television.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Naughty. I'm trying to keep it clean.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: We're trying to keep it clean. We're classy folks. He's drinking.

FOX REPORTER: Yes.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: What time is it?

DEVITO: Philadelphia is just waking up, right? We're trying to, you know --

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Now, come on, man.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: They're having their breakfast.

FOX REPORTER: Yes.

DEVITO: You know it's not real beer, for crying out loud.

FOX REPORTER: No, of course not.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

That's definitely going on his highlight reel, and I have a feeling we'll be seeing you again real soon, Danny.
