Sonia Live: The Warm-Up Act

An anti-abortion protester is ejected by U.S. Capitol police after he began yelling during the start of the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee confirmation hearings for U.S. Supreme Court nominee Judge Sonia Sotomayor, on Capitol Hill in Washington, July 13, 2009.

With an eye toward domestic terrorism, this anti-abortion wacko (disguised in a business suit) grabbed the floor this morning before being thrown out of day 1 of the Sotomayor confirmation hearings. (With that countenance, Code Pink you’re not.) Another factor, in terms of stimulating the crazies out there, is the GOP strategy of targeting the 2nd amendment as a confirmation issue as much or more than Roe.

It’s interesting visually, by the way, it’s a female cop (with another on the way) giving our friend the toss.
