Huckabee attacks "Maria" Sotomayor

According to Ben Smith over at Politico:
Mike Huckabee comes out hard against the Sonia Sotomayor appointment, with a bit of a misfire as concerns her name:
The appointment of Maria Sotomayor for the Supreme Court is the clearest indication yet that President Obama's campaign promises to be a centrist and think in a bipartisan way were mere rhetoric. Sotomayor comes from the far left and will likely leave us with something akin to the "Extreme Court" that could mark a major shift. The notion that appellate court decisions are to be interpreted by the "feelings" of the judge is a direct affront of the basic premise of our judicial system that is supposed to apply the law without personal emotion. If she is confirmed, then we need to take the blindfold off Lady Justice.--

Way to go Huckster. Yup all Latinas are Maria's.
West Side Story told me so. The maid in tv movies is always named Maria. I suppose if Obama had nominated a Latino, Huckster would have denounced Pancho, or Cisco. Perhaps Jesus (oops - never Jesus) or Juan Valdez.
This is just the start. Now she is gonna be too "emotional" cause she ahhh... has "empathy".
Popcorn anyone, while we watch the Rethugs shoot themselves in their collective foot?.
