The Republican Party has confirmed what everyone suspects: they have become a fringe political party, and as such are on their way to becoming extinct.
Eight courageous Republican U.S. senators defied their party and voted to confirm Judge Sonia Sotomayor. It was a historical occasion. She was very well qualified to ascend to the Supreme Court. She becomes the first Hispanic judge in the highest court of the United States.
Led by fanatical hate-mongers like idiot Limbaugh and Newt Gingrigh, the republican party is becoming the party that hates just about everyone. The three "G's" of God, Guns and Gays are their platform. An extremely ideological and anti-secular crowd now directs the national affairs of the Party of Abraham Lincoln.
What a shame. The hate fanatics and the obstructionists rule the G.O.P. today. They have nothing positive to offer to the U.S.A.
