    Sotomayor is an obvious bigot who is not worthy of being a member of the SCOTUS.

    She needs to be denied and sent back to her current practice of denying justice to those who have been victims of reverse discrimination.

    Just because you think she was not the best doesn't disqualify the idea. Hell there's always a better candidate for President in many people's eyes, but we get what we get, and people are not killing themselves over it.
    that everyone on his short list was a woman including two with laughable credentials is proof enough

But even in a completely color-blind, gender-blind society, you should expect someone other than a white male to be appointed from time to time.
    The point is that The Messiah choose his nominee first because she was a she and because she was hispanic, and third because she was a judge of pronounced unconstitutional bent.

    Nobody expects the nomination to be derailed (well, maybe a few naifs), but the project is now to make sure everyone knows what's in the package, a bigoted liberal, which is, naturally, a redundant statement.

    I can just see her getting into Scalia's fat face over... oh say... closing down a recount vote to ensure that the Repub won. I'm not crazy about a few of her decisions but, she should add a good dash of spunk to SCOTUS. Should be good for some good stories.
    Thank You Barack Obama for Restoring Honor To The Presidency.
    President Obama will rank as one of our greatest presidents!

    Yeah, I could imagine that too.

    Good thing Scalia never did any such thing.

    How is that anything but another RNC maneuver to waste time and money?
    Each one of the founding fathers was a special interest group.

    Scalia's fat face?

    I think it's a tie.

    Fat or not, she would be scary if she got up in your face. She is ugly enough to scare the crap out of a turd.
