If she really is a diabetic unpersuasive Catholic, then this may be the “briar patch” we hoped for.

We actually dodged a bullet here. Sotomayor may actually be an improvement over the bathroom trolling deviant that she is replacing.

I was particularly concerned that we might have got Kagan.

Sotomayor is older, diabetic and not nearly as bad ideologically as Kagan.

The GOP should just take this one. Kagan is Far Far worse.

-- Here's an idea, a Senator asks her during confirmation hearing where she stands on the Heller case, whether it is now settled law. --

The test I'd like to have administered is to report a summary of the Miller case. If a judge can't do basic case analysis, and this is an easy case, then they have no business being appointed to the bench. Oh, 9 of 9 sitting SCOTUS judges flunk this test.

It’s so funny - Fox News cameras just had to “zero in” on Obama on stage as the wide shot including Sotomayor showed the teleprompter! LOL.

Good Mornng TOL....I don’t recall that Bush always had a teleprompter in every shot. I’ve noticed this for two days that FNC can’t even get a decent shot of the pres. w/o those teleprompters in the shot. Even his nominee has to have the teleprompter in her shot. What a doofus.

Most immigrants from Mexico are primarily Indians with little money and who face racial prejudice. The spanish bloods tend to be the wealthy in society, who stay put in Mexico.

From the looks of Obama when he came home late Saturday night from Camp David, I’m thinking it was over a few rounds of something besides golf.

How about yesterday when he came out to read notecards to make his statement on North Korea and then stormed backed into the White House totally ignoring the press. Imagine if W had done that.

Considering the number of congresscritters so taken up with steroid use in MLB, that should assure her appointment.

The trick would be to open up a full, riling up, national conversation about affirmative action while under the cover of discussing the issues around her nomination. Don’t make it come off as a personal attack—in fact use excess caution in expanding it out to a philosophical Constitutional debate—and bring the real question of equal rights under the law into the national dialogue.

It was also--or should have been--a great day for hispanics when the very, most qualified Miguel Estrada was nominated, but like so many other disappointments for the conservative cause, he never stood a chance with the liberal morons in congress. T'was a sad day for America then....a sad day indeed...just like today....another sad day to see such an unqualified candidate be nominated for the highest court in the land.
