More Hate Speech from the Left:
Far Left Liberal Icon, Senator Ted Kennedy (democrat-MA) has called recent federal judiciary nominees "Neanderthals".
These "Neanderthals" include: Hispanic lawyer Miguel Estrada and California Supreme Court Justice Janice Rogers Brown, an African-American.

Let's be honest here, if Senator Trent Lot had said that about minority federal appointees, the democrats (and the majority of the media (NYT, LAT, Boston Globe, CBS, NBC, etc.) would be calling for his head.

I'm not the only one to call this Hate Speech. The Wall Street Journal writes:

Here we are in the 21st century, and a prominent politician is equating members of racial and ethnic minorities with a primitive subspecies of human being. Democrats were once the party of slavery and Jim Crow, but we'd thought they were beyond that.
