Glenn Beck had an amazing transformation today on Fox News: In the morning, the conservative shouting head was saying Sonia Sotomayor was just your typical, politically correct Supreme Court nominee from a liberal president. By the evening, Beck had decided she was actually a dangerous racist.

The top clip is Beck on Fox & Friends this the morning; underneath it is Beck's show from tonight. In mere hours, the pundit who joked that "we need a blind, deaf, handicapped Asian woman" for the Supreme Court was calling a federal judge racist.

That's just the sort of precious, white-male opportunity we need to protect from this dangerous Sonia Sotomayor!
