Debating Sotomayor with Shuster and Melber

By on 5.29.09 | 9:56AM

I'll be on MSNBC Live with David Shuster today at 11:10 (or sometime thereafter, given cable's quirks). We'll be discussing the Sotomayor nomination and whether she's actually Hispanic, whether she's actually qualified, and whether Antonin Scalia, somewhere back in the family tree, may actually be Mexican.

Ari has a post on Kos here indicating a desire to elevate the discourse, which I'm happy to try to help on, but frankly, how do you get an elevated discourse on having someone come on on the basis of their ethnicity, moreso than their qualifications? No really, I wonder, where does this leave the opposition?
