Everyone's A Little Bit Racist and then there is Pat Buchanan
There is a great post addressing Pat Buchanan's response to the Sotomayor hearings--that the Republicans need to be more racist, rather than less. The Avenue Q song in the title (well, the first part) of this post recognizes the reality that we all have prejudices. Buchanan's advocacy of playing to whites goes just a bit beyond that, and, as noted in the linked article above, is almost certainly a losing strategy these days. But as we have seen from the hearings, the Republican Senators seem to be following Buchanan's playbook.
