Posted on 08/06/2009 12:59:59 PM PDT by Federalist Patriot

Here is video of Sonia Sotomayor being confirmed by the U.S. Senate as an Associate Justice of the United States Supreme Court. Her confirmation was announced by Sen. Al Franken of Minnesota as he presided in the Senate Session. Sotomayor was confirmed by a 68-31 vote, and becomes the 111th person to sit on the U.S. Supreme Court. Sotomayor is the first Hispanic to sit on the high court. She replaces Justice David Souter, who was always a reliable liberal vote on the court. . . . . . . . (Watch Video)

The clown approves of the bigot.

Well this sure speaks well of the US Senate, run by a land swindler.

Ha!.....A winner of stolen votes ushering in a token, race category filling liberal who couldn’t win a seat for a position in any fair election. In my estimation, this is very telling of the mindset of our enemies.

How fitting to have a comedian announce it. Does this mean once the one is proved ineligible that she will be out?

Can anyone get a list of RINO’s voting YAY for this Social Justice Marxist? I want to give their next primary opponents a truckload of money. Thanks.

“Sotomayor is the first Hispanic to sit on the high court.”

More lies.
She’s the first one Hispanic ENOUGH to sit on the high court.

Don’t you love farce?
My fault I fear.
I thought that you’d want what I want.
Sorry, my dear.
But where are the clowns?
Quick, send in the clowns.
Don’t bother, they’re here.

Exactly.

But, he’s gone and can’t speak for himself, so they’re rewriting history.

That guy continues to be an embarassment.

He’s a one-hit wonder on nukes, and we rarely see him here in Indiana. Hell, even during his re-election campaign, he doesn’t have to come back “home”.

I can’t look at Franken without being reminded that the state bird of Minnesota is the LOON.

He must/better not be planning on running again. Bayh is more conservative than `Dick’ on TARP, national reciprocal gun carry and all things economic.
Pence should run for his job & give him a nudge toward a rocker if he won’t leave on his own.

Her nomination is certainly not a good thing, but if it is to be a liberal activist judge, I much prefer an intellectual lightweight like Sotomayor. In terms of influencing the court, she is likely to be weaker than Souter and will certainly have a tough row to hoe in pushing her vacuous ideas in opposition to serious guys like the fearsome foursome, Scalia, Thomas, Alito, and Roberts.

I wish Scalia and Thomas would take better care of themselves.

Franken ‘08, Pawlenty ‘09. We need to start scraping dirt on Frankenstein and make him lose his seat. That wouldn’t be too hard.

Anyone that voted to confirm her should be marked for defeat in his next election. I will not support the National Republican Party with my monetary donations next time. If I do contribute, it will be to specific candidates. No more RINO’s and cyrto-statists.
