Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor says the nation’s highest court needs more diversity in personal background and professional experience. […]

The court’s first Latina justice says she feels there’s “a disadvantage” to having a court made up entirely of Ivy League graduates who are either Catholic or Jewish, several of them from New York. She notes that none specialized in criminal defense outside white-collar settings. …

Hey lady, I got your diversity of background right here— a non-lawyer, military veteran, factory worker who has read the Constitution and understands it.

Oops, I bet that last bit is a disqualifier.

Oh well.

I agree with her. It needs more conservatives.

She’s right. They need more justices who follow the Constitution instead of their emotions.

It has a black conservative on the bench. You can’t get much more of a minority than that!

The diversity appointment speaks about a lack of scotus diversity.

The Latino Harriet Myers of Obama shows that idiot leftist ‘wisdom’ once again.

Sotomayor would be my second choice for impeachment, right behind that useful idiot Kennedy..

How about a death row inmate now that would be diversity for you if he or she didn’t kill you first.

We need a Marxist, Stalinist, Socialist, Communist, Fascist, Progressive, Maoist, Leninist, and Islam Terrorist just to make the nine.

Four Marxists, two lesbian trolls, and a Ruth Buzzy impersonator. How much more diversity do you need?

The next nominee will probably be the Black Panther who “served” on the OJ jury. I think he meets Sotomayor’s requirements.

I believe there are no protestants on the court which is the dominant religion in this county. The dumb ass Latina is right for the first time in her life. I wonder if Sheriff Arpaio is Protestant?

I don’t like all this racist thinking on the S Ct.

How about SOtomeyer resigning so that the new president can appoint at least 2 new “diverse” (or not) people to the court?

If Sotomayer doesn’t like the present makeup of the court, she has it in her power to help change it...

If we were actually able to gain back the white but, and have control of the Senate, is there an actual rule as to the size of the court? I know that it has been added to in the past.

Congress decides on the size of the Supreme Court.

Anybody who believes the US Constitution is a “LIVING DOCUMENT” should be automatically disqualified and barred from ever being a Judge for life.

Sotomayor wants to infect more liberalism into our courts.

This illness called “diversity” is terminal. It kills every nation it infects.
