Quote of the Day
I firmly believe Supreme Court Nominee Sonia Sotomayor is the liberal-equivalent of former Bush Supreme Court nominee Harriet Miers; in the sense that she fits a profile (Like Miers, she’s a woman, and like Bush before him – Miguel Estrada – Obama wants to put a Hispanic on the high court), and is really under-qualified for the position that’s been asked of her.
As much as Gruber is once again saying this is a bear trap for the GOP (What isn’t Ryan might I ask?), I humbly have to ask if a woman who’s biggest judicial ‘victory’ is ending the 1994-95 MLB baseball strike – you have to wonder where her legal know-how is.
That if anything should be a question as to why she’s being considered for this position. I’m not alone in this feeling, she comes off as a legal lightweight, so say The New Republic’s Jeffrey Rosen said back in March about this woman.
But hey, she’s the quota pick and comes from an Ivy League school. What else does one expect in a world where ‘diversity’ on the court appears to be the standard, not actual knowledge of the U.S. Constitution?
I would hope that a wise Latina woman with the richness of her experiences would more often than not reach a better conclusion than a white male who hasn’t lived that life.
Anyone who’s ever visited the Supreme Court will see high about its entrance the words “Equal Justice Under Law.” A statement such as the one above makes you wonder if she’ll even honor those words as a Supreme Court Justice.
BTW, guns rights advocates would be interested in reading this.
