    Please tell me how you know how bright she is? What about going to Princeton and then Yale Law (all on scholarships) and being the Editor of the Yale Law Journal certanly supports your contention that she is "not incredibly bright" because we all know that you're just average if you go to Princeton and Yale (below average if your last name is Bush ).

    Why not simply state that as a loyal member of the party of NO you're simply doing what all loyal party members do in 2009 (say no to anything that Obama does no matter what it is)?

    To suggest that you know how bright she is and what she thinks about being a Supreme is just.....

    Because I voted for Obama so clearly I'm NOT a loyal party member. Next.

    You're also not very conservative if you voted for Obama. Good lord, you voted for the man, now you have a problem with his SC Nominee? Hey, you and every other person that said "Yeah McCain isn't great, but this Obama guy, well I'll pull the lever for him" Woah, what his record of piss poor character judgment led him to choose this woman for the Supreme Court... that's wrong."


    You got NO right complaining about her, cause YOU helped get her there.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    But I forgot, fat people can't get facts straight. Thanks for that wonderful insight family guy.
    I agree with you! The poster that I was replying to made it sound (IMHO) that Rush's words were gospel, all of them, all of the time, that any "fact" that he spits out is not to be questioned....

    Rush can be right, of course...even a broken clock is right twice a day...

    You didn't share with us how you know how bright she is??? Where are you getting your facts that allows you to make a conclusive statement about someone you had never heard of 8 hours ago?

    I have every right to complain as long and as loud as I want. It seemed apparent during the election we were hellbent in driving off a cliff. I preferred having a Dem do that than a Republican. If we were gonna adopt some socialist policies either way then we might as well have a guy with socialist leanings in charge.

    My party deserved to loose.

    Also, I think as a woman she should could have made a case for what women bring to the court, how they balance the court, etc without putting her foot in her mouth and suggesting an ethnic vagina makes a better judge than a white penis.
    I find your reasons to be trivial and partisan, clearly demonstrating a total refusal to participate in an honest discussion of Sotomayer's abilities.

    I find it laughable that the guy with Sarah Palin in his avatar is questioning Sotomayer's ablility and qualifications.

    So now you're running downstream against all the Democrat salmon who claimed Bush was an idiot? I mean, you're saying that this broad went to Yale, so she must be smart.
