Richard Cohen Probably Hasn't Been to a Cocktail Party with Sonia Sotomayor

I'm afraid I don't have much to say about Richard's latest. But did you know that all of us have a "whiff of elitism-cum-racism" about us because we're impressed with Sonia Sotomayor's success? It's not like other famous people didn't come from Brooklyn, therefore we are all elitist racists. In fact, every single famous person on the planet was once a poor, Hispanic kid in the projects in Brooklyn, and they all had wonderful teachers and parents. The end.

Sometimes, I try to imagine what it would be like to view the world like Cohen does. And then I throw up like a seasick sailor.

(I think you mean The Bronx, which, as Richard pointed out,is Mumbain for All Hispanic Women Are Unqualified For Jobs And Are Token Affirmative Action Hires.)

Has it been noted before (surely it must have been noted before) Mr. Cohen's incredible resemblance to Alfred E. Neuman?
