As everyone here, I have been watching the Senatorial review of the nominated Sotomayor. It's, as always, a way for our Senators to grandstand and take up valuable camera time to express their simpleton views followed by a 3 second question. Yes, she is clearly a racist. There can really be no argument here. Instead, I look at her as Souter's replacement. In judging the record between them, it is clear that we will not have a considerable difference in outcome with cases before our highest court. Unfortunately, our Senators understand this and do not want to press the issues. Had I have had the opportunity to present a question, I would have pushed a response on this one: "Justice Sotomayor, your statements are firm. You find yourself a superior judge to Kennedy, Stevens, Roberts, Scalia, Souter, Breyer and Alito; but I am curious if you are also superior to Ginsburg and Thomas?" If you need to grandstand, at least do it right Senators!
