I don't think I've mentioned yet just how excited I am for the new Supreme Court nomination of Sonia Sotomayor!
So I'll say it now.
And while most of the Republican party tends to have a "just say no" to EVERYTHING approach, it's gonna be hard to pigeonhold Ms. Sotomayor. The likes of Cheney and Limbaugh (shudder) will do their best to make her appear "too liberal," "too activist," or "intemperate" . And yet, to turn her into a villian is to take a huge risk. They could end up losing the women vote and the Hispanic vote.
And while she has sided with defendants, inmates, and environmentalists, she's also made several conservative stances throughout her career. Plus, she has an impeccable upward-through-education-and-hard-work pedigree: She grew up in public housing in the Bronx, the daughter of a factory worker, and got a law degree from Yale.
What's not to like?
Cheney and Limbaugh will find something. It's just the way the world works.
