Stay Classy Miguel Miranda.

Greg Sargent reported earlier today that former hacker in the "Memogate" scandal, Miguel Miranda, is leading an effort to pressure Republican Senators to attack Supreme Court nominee Judge Sonia Sotomayor. Now Greg is reporting that Miranda has made a racist statement about black people.

Today, Miranda did a conference call with conservative bloggers organized by the Heritage foundation, where he discussed Sotomayor. Asked how Republicans could oppose her while avoiding charges of racism, Miranda said they had to wage substantive attacks. Then he segued into a discussion of the views of Hispanics on issues, saying:

“By the way, Hispanic polls, Hispanic surveys, indicate that Hispanics think just like everyone else. We’re not like African Americans. We think just like everybody else.”

I would hope that Republican Senators will be questioned about Miranda's statement IMMEDIATELY and asked if they will continue to take his calls about Judge Sotomayor. Its time to pull the veil off of this bullshit and confront the racism that still exists in this country. And ain't no time like the present.
