She'll Do Just Fine
President Obama has selected Sonia Sotomayor as his choice to replace David Souter on the Supreme Court.
Not to sound like a Mafia lawyer or anything, but I know a guy who knows a guy who...
actually, I know a woman who worked under Sotomayor when my friend was a prosecutor for the NYC District Attorney's office.
Sotomayor was fair, competent and not afraid to occasionally color outside the lines.
The right-wing Republicans already are sharpening their hatchets to condemn Obama's choice, but they'll have to work around the fact that George Bush 41 appointed her to the bench back in his day.
Also, with Hispanics the fastest growing demographic in America, the GOP will face a lot of grief if they appear to be the racist bastards they are by rejecting Sotomayor's nomination.
On the plus side, there are no opinions authored by her on the subject of abortion.
She can always tell the GOP her aim is to respect the Constitution and existing laws when making decisions, and they'll have no grenades to launch at her about abortion.
A liberal, Latina justice is just what we needed on the top bench.
Good pick, Obama.
