    If someone wants to oppose Sotomayor because they don't believe she'd be a good Justice, that's fine. If they're opposing her simply because Obama opposed Alito/Roberts, then they're an idiot.
    Yes

    and

    Yes


    I think you are catching on.
    I came into this world fighting, screaming and covered in someone else's blood. I have no problem going out the same way.

    Apparently, she isn't the racist activist that many have made her out to be. Thoughts?
    Well, she's undeniably at least mildly racist by her own words, so we can dispense with that question.

    As for being an activist, I rather think it's much the same as me me being a motorcycle stuntman. I want to be one, but I don't have the guts.

    I'm glad you admit you encourage school grade argumentation amongst adults.

    Problem is, she's no racist. Epic Fail right wingers.

    I'm really too tired to argue the obvious.

    Stating that one racial group is likely to have greater wisdom than another is no different than ascribing differing rhythm, honesty, or intelligence to them.

    She did so repeatedly, and only someone detached from reality would deny her racism.

    Hopefully, its only a minor blemish, such as most people have, and she'll overcome it.

    I'm sure the "club" would love to hear that ear in Texas.

    No, but grade school argumentation would be a step up for the Senate.

    I think Republicans will praise her and vote for her because they, the Republicans, have no clue and are basically stupid.

    Now there's a thought!
