It was a foregone conclusion, but it’s still irksome that the RINOs piled on for Sotomayor. It’s not just that she’s a judicial activist who dislikes self-defense, lies about her record, and shilled for a radical Puerto Rican group. It’s that the hearings showed something very, very specific about her: she’s a complete mediocrity. The woman is as dumb as a somewhat smart post. She’s a slow thinker. She’s uninformed. She’s a tribute, not to brains and hard work, but to affirmative action.
On the good side. It is entirely possible that the charming and tactful Justice Roberts might be able to move that slow brain into a different world view. If she were as bright as he, it is likely that she’d be able to match him argument for argument. As a lesser legal light (heck, a lesser anything light), she might not be able to muster coherent arguments to justify her positions, and may prove to be a very weak liberal link indeed.
