  1. I saw a picture of Obamas nominee to the Supremes, I thought for sure he was going to pick a woman. I’m surprised he didn’t.

  2. Oops nevermind.

  3. That was just… wrong.

    Would be more accurate to say “I thought President Obama was going to pick a judge.”

  4. With her off the cuff comment that, ¨Court is where policy is made. .¨ I have to wonder where she stands on the First and Second Amendments.
    Will she give the green light to gun grabbers? Will she require the FEC to implement the un-Fairness Doctrine? The fact that she was nominated to a lower court by Bush 41 doesn´t impress me in the least. After all, in spite of his nomination of Judge Robert Bork, he allowed former Senator Warren Rudman to foist Judge Souter on us. Maybe Juge Sotomayor needs a Borking.

  6. I’m always amused with the term Latina. So many Hispanics look white Anglo, have no accent, and suddenly take on an oppressed minority status by declaring themselves “Latina”.

  13. To the Obama toadies, Obamateleprompter can do no wrong. Biden in their eyes isn’t a bumbling gaffe machine, Obama picked him. Geithner isn’t a tax cheat who is too stupid to do even his own taxes, Obama picked him. Sebelious isn’t a tax scofflaw, Obama picked her. Richardson isn’t a crook, Obama picked him. Rev Wright isn’t an anti American bigot, Obama sat in his pew in his church. Bill Ayers isn’t a terrorist, he’s a neighbor of Obama. And these Obamaphile toadies are PROUD of their stand! They have the onions to lift their heads and mock others?

  14. Oh Oh
    Jonathon Turley a frequent critic of Republicans on MSNBC gives his opinion of Obamas selection for the Supreme Court after reading some of her opinions.
    It appears as though Obama has added another DUMMY to his team…geez. “she’s just not that smart.”

    I thought it was Spanish for ‘the Tina’

  17. I’ve been asked for the definition of “incompetent boob”.
    I’d say being reversed 60% of the time on major decisions by your superiors, is a good yard stick. hehe Obama knows how to pick em huh.

  19. #18 Peter I learned very well from “that bunch”. Starting with R Bork, Clearance Thomas, Anita Hill, Bush 43, yeah I learned the politics of personal distruction. I rememberhow theydemeaned and villified Ron and Nancy Reagan as well. But in this case the stumbling and bumbling of this new young President is unpresidented. And it is fun to watch liberals twist themselves into pretzels defending. Or like most of the coward leftists in this blog, they just retreat.

  20. #19 – Totally agree, Gene.

  21. Republican Senators should vote ¨no,¨ on Sotomayor´s nomination. Voting for her will not endear the majority of hispanics, who are Democrats, to the Republican Party. If there is an outrage, hispanics need to be reminded that very early in the first term of Bush 43, his top pick for the U.S Court of Appeals for the DC, was Hondurian born, Miguel Estrada. He was considered to be a future appointment to SCOTUS. Patrick Leahy said he was too controversial. He and the Democrats put the man through a ringer and did everything possible to obstruct his nomination that Judge Estrada withdrew his name. Where was the hispanic community´s outrage against the Democrats in 2001?
    As in the case of historic first appointments of blacks like Colin Powel and latinos like Alberto Gonzalesl by ¨W¨praise or outrage is given when the indivdual is a Democrat.

  22. Is she a “friend of Dorothy?” That will be juicy!

    Comment by Ashpenaz — May 27, 2009 @ 1:12 pm - May 27, 2009

  23. #21-22: Personally, Ash, I don’t have a problem if the person is gay. I have a problem if the person is selected BECAUSE he or she is gay.

    It’s one thing to say that perfectly qualified nominees are being barred from serving because of their demographics, and that you’re willing to nominate someone despite their profile. It’s another thing to say that you’re nominating someone for their profile, despite their qualifications.

    The Left was infuriated about Clarence Thomas, by the same premise. They argued that he was selected only because he was a black conservative. But in the process, they showed how political they were, since they got the demographic they wanted, but not the ideology. They only care about the demographics when it serves their political purpose.

    If the person is otherwise qualified, their orientation doesn’t bother me. But they have to be qualified. Ms. Sotemayor is not.

    Peter H.

  24. Rumor is she is a lesbian. Don’t know, don’t care. HOWEVER — since one of the MAIN reasons she was nominated was because of her “life story”, “background”, and “empathy” — doesn’t the American public deserve to know EVERYTHING about her?

    Obama played the personality card, so he has to see it through.

    Comment by GayPatriot — May 27, 2009 @ 1:56 pm - May 27, 2009

  25. #24 – I agree, Bruce. If she’s keeping her orientation under wraps, I for one would like to know why.

    Plus, don’t forget it was the Dhimmicrats who made the word “Bork” a verb. That sword can cut equally both ways.

    However, I don’t have any faith in the GOP members on the Senate Judiciary Committee. For some reason, it is as if they are afraid to act.

    Unfortunately, if it’s not enough that The Snob’s rationale for her nomination and Sotomayor’s own statements necessarily entail violation of the judicial oath, if it’s not enough that she intends to craft policy from the highest bench in the land in defiance of the Constitution, if it’s not enough that she is a racist, then unfortunately, this nomination will sail right through.

    It is the sworn duty of the Republican minority on the Judiciary Committee to prevent this nomination from getting to the floor of the Senate. They have that power. For the next two years, it might be the only power they have. And right now is only the first of the many occasions on which they will be called upon to use it. As the Dhimmicrats repeatedly demonstrated over the previous eight years, there is nothing sacred about a judicial nomination.

    To the Republicans on the Judiciary Committee, I will say this: if you’re not going to use your oversight power when the preservation of the Republic requires it, then what good are you?

    And to Cornyn and Hutchison in my home state – do the right thing, or don’t bother to send me campaign literature. Because you will not get one thin dime from me. And I will definitely vote against you in the next primary.

    Peter H.

  26. And while I’m on the subject, perhaps one of our libtrolls can answer the following question:

    If Sotomayor will bring the “common touch” to the Supreme Court, why was Sarah Palin too “common” to be a V.P. nominee?

    Anyone? Anyone? Bueller? Bueller?

    Regards,
    Peter H.

    Comment by Peter Hughes — May 27, 2009 @ 4:26 pm - May 27, 2009

  27. Sarah Palin is obviously much brighter than Sotomayor and I hope Republicans bring that up. I hope Sotomayor goes on The View and faces the tough questions of Joy Behar. I think her orientation is important–if she’s not eligible for the military, how can she be eligible for the Supreme Court?

    P.S. I’m impressed that people knew what “friend of Dorothy” meant. I thought that might be a bit antique, but I’ve always liked it.

    P.P.S. If she isn’t confirmed, does that mean the seat goes to the much more likable but less talented Kris Allen?

  29. This is such a scam. The Constitution is not a “living” document but when people like Sotomayor become one of The Nine, that is exactly how laws will be enforced. I know that our nation will soon be full of ridiculous “Hate Laws” which will ban speech and safety laws that will take away our guns. I really hope she is blocked and bludgeoned while being vetted but I know she won’t be. The Republican has too few like Sarah Palin and too many like Colin Powell. GayPatriot readers and friends, be prepared for a dreary future of government control, high taxes and very few personal freedoms. I don’t want to sound too unhappy, after all, with a heroic Latina woman on the Supreme Court, we can all rest assured that our country is acknowledging the crucial importance of DIVERSITY!!! HURRAH!!!
