" ... Franken told Sotomayor that she was "the most experienced Supreme Court nominee in 100 years." He said her story is inspirational and one in which "all Americans should take great pride in ..."
(Excerpt) Read more at breitbart.com ...
I guess he equates tenure on the bench (with a helluva a lot of overturned rulings) to be the "most experienced" ...
Hasn't he heard of Holmes, Brandeis, Cardoza, Frankfurter, Douglas, Brennan, and Marshall - just to name a few ???
They had vastly more life and career experience ...
Did Franken speak as a white male, questioning her about her belief that all white males should be castrated until they white population no longer is in control? As she said in her speech to the NOW group in Puerto Rico?
Senator Franken then proceeded to “honk” his nose and squirt water out of a fake flower on his lapel.
Well, the democrats wanted him, they’ve got him. It looks like the republicans are working to make him the face of his party. Good.
Amazingly, no one laughed at his joke.
This is just the start of Franken’s wisdom pouring out of his mouth. There’ll be lots more. We’ll think Biden is a Rhodes Scholar after a few more Franken comments.
Wtf!!! How did Franken get on the Judiciary Committee? He is the most junior senator and he sits on one of the most powerful committees in Congress??? I wonder if some of his colleagues are pissed off.
Wise men speak because they have something to say, fools because they have to say something. - Plato
Did they make up that "peoples' proxy" role just for him?
IMHO, I think the MN voters actually elected Colemen.
It is not Franken who is the problem. It is the stupid voters of Minnesota who need to be taken to task.
No doubt - and I got relatives in MN who voted for him ... now searching for good sanatoriums for them :)
He gives new meaning to the phrase: “The Democrats are a bunch of jokers”.
Minneapolis Star Tribune had an orgasm when this clown was seated. Then they went back to bashing Cheney.
Good Gawd! Was calliope music playing while he prattled?
(that muffled gagging sound you hear is rising up from our Founding Fathers’ graves)
What’s up with the interruptions in Spanish?

Boy, oh boy— I sure hope that that speech is played in the hearing room!!!
Was he talking to a mirror?:)
Does he have Bell’s palsy? Or is he just talking out of both sides of his mouth?
Did she really say that? If so, it's no wonder that her marriage to her HS classmate didn't last! It's lucky that that Irish boy got out of there intact!
Franken is a psychopath.
Ancient Rome got a horse in their senate.. we got a damn jackass.
Was Franken wearing his diaper?
Sotomayor opposes individuals owning guns, remember?

I don’t see anyone else writing about this...I gotta find where I read it. I certainly hope I am not spreading a myth or a satire.

CORRECTION, WE GOT THIS WRONG- SOTOMAYOR, "Castrate All White Males."
By Bob Haran, American Conservative Republican
UPDATE: WE GOT THIS WRONG. THIS WAS A SATIRE PIECE THAT I DIDN'T CHECK OUT.
THERE IS NO RECORD OF SONIA SOTOMAYOR SAYING ANYTHING REGARDING CASTRATING ALL WHITE MALES. I TAKE FULL RESPONSIBILITY FOR THIS ERROR, I SHOULD HAVE CHECKED THIS OUT BEFORE POSTING.
For God and country,
These frickin Dems...and this a##hole in particular...are absolutely delusional!!! DELUSIONAL!!!
In one of my pursuits we speak of someone that has 30 years of experience and someone that has 1 year of experience 30 times.
You are forgiven — LOL — but it surely made my little heart go pit-a-pat! It would have been a smoking gun, for sure. I’d love to see them talk their way out of THAT.
I still wonder what happened to her Irish-American HS sweetheart/hubby. Very short marriage. I believe his last name was Noonan. Megan Kelly showed his picture on Fox this AM. It is the first mention I’ve heard of him.
...and Franken went on to say, ‘she’s good enough, she’s smart enough, and, doggonit, people like her.’
