I wonder sometimes why we bother with a swearing in ceremony any more. There was a day when taking an oath meant something but now it is just a ceremony. As I have said before our political campaigns are largely contests to see who can promise to violate the constitution in the most imaginative ways and then the winner swears to preserve, protect and defend the constitution with ABSOLUTELY no intention of doing so.
Sonia Sotamayor CERTAINLY has no intention of doing anything BUT violate the constitution. With her brand of preserve, protect and defend we may as well burn the document and be honest about it.
