Krikorian is the Worst Person in the World

Anti-iimmigrant activist Mark Krikorian goes after President Obama’s Supreme Court nominee, Sonia Sotomayor, not on her judicial record, not on her professional background, nor on the many opinions she has delivered during her career as a litigator and judge, but for how she pronounces her last name.  In an article in the National Review, he states that “Deferring to people's own pronunciation of their names should obviously be our first inclination, but there ought to be limits.”  The piece was so ridiculous it earned instant fame in the netroots as the most inane and ridiculous criticism of Sotomayor to date, and earned him the dubious distinction of being named by MSNBC’s Keith Olberman as “The Worst Person in the World” for May 27.
