Sotomayor

Barring the rise of the GOP into adequacy, we're about to have a small-minded, racist judge sitting on the highest court of the land. And if that doesn't make you weep, then you're in dire need of medication. I was going to type out a manifesto on her, but Gabriel Malor at Ace of Spades HQ has already done so.

When I write that Sotomayor's extensive history of race- and gender-bias should disqualify her for a seat on the Supreme Court that's not hyperbole. I mean it. She should not be a judge because she believes that some individuals are better than others by virtue of membership in certain identity groups. She should not be a judge because she tried to hide a case involving important constitutional and statutory questions from her fellow appellate judges. Such a small-minded and intellectually dishonest person should not be elevated to the highest Court. If only the Republicans on Senate Judiciary agreed.


The Republican Stupid Party has once again displayed the weak-minded, yellow bellied, incompetency that lost them the 2006 elections, and the 2008 elections, and going by what I see, the 2010 elections. Gah.
