Holy crap, six-time Socialist presidential candidate Norman Thomas! Anyway.
So our next Supreme Court justice will almost certainly be Sonia Sotomayor, unless the Right can somehow make the case that she is simply too female, too Hispanic, too stoopid and too feel-y to hang with such ruthlessly brilliant nonideological legal minds as John Roberts. Now, you and I may be happy that, after eight years of this bullshit, we'll finally be able to have a conversation about the judiciary free of the assumption that anyone who understands (or, rather, says out loud) that judicial rulings shapes society, and that personal experience and political orientation shape judicial outlooks, is somehow an "activist" or whatever. But you know who is not happy about this? The Bitterz. They so rarely are. So, let's don our HazMat suits and dive into the comments section at Free Republic, shall we?8:32am, yesterday. Word of the pick has just leaked. Take it away, DogBarkTree:
SOTOMAYOR! Great/ Legislate from the bench why dontcha, puta.
"Obama is a radical marxist emptysuited long legged mack daddy fool."
THIS choice was putting her typecast above her age and health.
She's a little older and her health is not great.
“HAD” diabetes? Nope, she HAS diabetes. And that might be a good thing, because she will likely not live as long as recent Justices are wont to do.
Pardon the un-PC.
She (Princeton '76, summa cum laude; Yale Law 1979) probably couldn’t get 2nd place at a good private high school mock trial club.
I’m sitting here unable to work, staing out the window in total disbelief that Obama is the POTUS.
Worse, I remember going through this with Clinton and thinking (yeah, but he’s a one termer)
I need a positive to happen...Israel bombing Iran...something (yikes egads)
