It seems to be news when any Republican dares to criticize Rush Limbaugh (the titular head of the Republican party) these days, rarer still when it comes from one of their most conservative members who also just happens to be the chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee.

Asked on NPR yesterday what he thought of recent remarks by Limbaugh and Gingrich who calling Supreme Court nominee Sotomayor "racist" and saying she should withdraw.

"I think it's terrible. This is not the kind of tone that any of us want to set when it comes to performing our constitutional responsibilities of advice and consent....Neither one of these men are elected Republican officials [and] I just don't think it's appropriate and I certainly don't endorse it. I think it's wrong."

And just prior to that, Cornyn was asked what role background influences should play for a Justice, recalling that Samuel Alito made similar comments in 2006 at his hearings as Sotomayor has made.

No doubt an apology to the aggrieved Mr Limbaugh is in the offing. Start the countdown.
