are you watching the
lying backpeddling confirmation hearings of judge sonia sotomayor? let me be perfectly clear: judge sotomayor has been a shameless race baiter, 2nd amendment hater, anti-constitutional, seems somewhat intellectually lazy, and an old school feminist who’s many good accomplishments have served to bolster ridiculous pc thinking and affirmative action in this country.
aw, they have the same smile!
now having said that, the truth is that when these ’seinfeld hearings’ are over, sonia sotomayor will be confirmed by a healthy margin and will be a justice on the supreme court for the rest of her life or if she were to resign like justice david souter.
she never really explained adequately her ‘wise latina’ speechifying but rather backpeddled by calling it a comment that fell flat. well ya. her ‘compelling life story’ which was promoted over and over seems to supercede all those other ‘little concerns’ about judicial philosophy and temperment.
i am a pragmatist. though i like seeing sotomayor squirm a wee bit, i know she will be confirmed. most likely, sotomayor won’t be any worse then the supreme she is replacing. the greater concern will be with the next nomination that The iOne will give us.
frankly, i would much rather my elected officials show this kind of passion on working to kill cap and tax and nationalized healhcare. it’s the economy killers that need to be shut out completely. her rapid eye-blinking is annoying and just listening to chuck schumer and patrick leahy makes me sick.
if you want to watch the hearings online scotus blog (one of my favorites!) is liveblogging.
