Here’s how Young America’s Foundation spokesman Jason Mattera reacted (on Facebook) to the first batch of senatorial statements about Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor:

Picture 12

Mattera is a frequent Fox News guest, often booked after he does quick ambush interviews with Democrats on the Hill.

Shanks are used in jail. Shivs are used on the street. Just another Fox bimbo with poor knowledge of even Sharks vs. Jets style gang activity. Maybe Mattera should go dance it out.

What we are really seeing, but always knew, is that Republicans are a bunch of racist idiots.

If it's true that Mr. Jason Mattera is himself of Hispanic/Latino heritage, he may be best served by mental health intervention to help him deal with his own self-hatred issues.

There is so much news-noise and chatter, what with blogs and Twitter, you can only stick out of the crowd by being outrageous, like Borat, Beck, Palin and, now, Mattera. It's the cultivation of idiocy as a form of PR.

Jason Mattera is a sniveling little pussy. He's been given chance after chance to play with the Big Boys on FOX nad HateRadio, and has always come off immature and offensive. Now, that would normally get you spot after spot on Beck or Hannity, but you see the problem is he also weak, and stupid to boot.

This is his chance to show he has cojones, and he is going to try his best, deepen his voice, and butch up..

Pssst… Jason? Your silk panties are showing, macho. Beating up on old women is easy.

Racism is almost always defined as, or implies, a type of discrimination.

Discrimination is defined as the “treatment or consideration of, or making a distinction in favor of or against, a person or thing based on the group, class, or category to which that person or thing belongs rather than on individual merit”.

You seem to be too much of an idiot to realize the absolute hypocrisy of your own statement.

A set of good sportswear designer jeans will do much favor to the athlete. When you watch a race, perhaps you will only focus on jeans for men the runners’ movement, and neglect their wears. In fact, the sportswear will decide who will win the final match to great extent. Why I diesel jeans say so? Just turn to those all-stars.Why they are more excellent and brilliant than others? The sport gift is may be their top priority, however, they calvin klein jeans just believe what they wear, they have a strong faith that coat armors they wear will bring them good luck, and the fact is indeed ed hardy jeans the case, although what they wear is not special at all.To the runner, the sports running shoes seem very important, which evisu jeans mostly depends on the shoes’ quality and performance. A pair of perfect running shoes will actually accelarate the runner’s speed not just bring him the g star jeans fortune. Just because of this, the average running shoes will be far behind the professional ones at the price. For most sports, the sportswear seem to be the key to success. A set of portable true religion jeans clothes will make the athletes more light-footed, such as swimming, running or doing gymnastics. The Burberry Jeans reason is simple, all these sports need speed, so the athletes will wear light to reduce the air hindrance.

In the modern time, pets become more fashionable. Because the human beings want to dress their pets up to make them look more adorable. So we wrack our brains Jimmy Choo ????? and try every way to make clothes for our pets. Several years ago, the pets’ clothes seemed to be rustic and naive. But nowadays, it changes a lot. The pets wear their clothes just like us, with different types of colorful ????? ?? ??????? ??????? clothes. Even sometimes, they will wear their clothes to participate in the pets beauty competition. In some present hot Hollywood pets movies, it is a commonly seen that the dog and cats wear skirts or gowns and earrings. That this is the case how people pay much attention to their pets. What’s more, some maverick individuals let a male dog and a Jimmy Choo female cat wear the wedding dress. and solemnly hold the wedding ceremony. That is just so funny. Though the pets in the movie seems to be very fond of wearing clothes, however, in the real world, we can’t assert that the pets will appreciate being dressed up. Scientifically speaking, animals have got used to the wild world without wearing anything. Perhaps they are reluctant to be covered with something on their bodies, although their ?????? ?? facial expression can’t tell us anything. More seriously, it is possible to hurt their skins through spoiling the inner fiber organs by wearing clothes just because of the maladaptation.

Just look at the Five Fingers shoes. That’s so peculiar louboutin shoes and cute. The magical power of this shoes is louboutin shoes red that it makes you have no feeling of shoes. When you wear it, it looks like louboutin pumps you walk on the road with bare foot, just because the shape of the shoes is louboutin boots the same as your own foot, with five fingers. As if your own foot were dyed, the shoes are colorful, which you can pick them at your pleasure. Although it seems to sound weird, in my louboutin heels opinion, the shoes should be designed in this way. The five fingers style should replace of the arch style. It suits the beach, high land and louboutin flats mountain. You can wear it to travel around all the natural landscapes with varied topography. And it is not necessary to worry about that it will be worn out, ’cause it is specifically designed for those difficult terrains. Patching it with a simple summer wear seems cheap louboutin shoes to be a nice idea. It will be definite the most fashionable costume in this summer. Perhaps you will enjoy the pictures which were shot by digi-cameras or your own cellphone camera when you soaked yourself in smiling and chatting with others by wearing the Five-Fingers shoes. That’s absolutely one of your most precise memories.

If you want to purchase cheap Phillip lim handbags for just about any lifetime, it is best to undoubtedly refrain from seasonal designs of Designer replica handbags. There are countless evergreen styles you can buy from, in the celebration you cannot afford to create a complete assortment of those designerZacposen handbags items. You are much better away owning just one of two genuine handbags than a few counterfeit items.

Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.
