#1 She is a abomination to the rule of law. Do you really want a lawless society not bound of Constitution because YOU BROKE YOUR OATH, Mr Executive?

All of your nominees are fucked in the head, this one is a life sitting member.

Pull it out man, for your own sake before Rome is called out on the GOD carpet.

The shoe will drop.

#2 Because in the next phase of the NEW LENIN'S admin the Gulag camps will be opening for anybody who still has a brain.

#3 The FEMA camps are already there, just need occupants. Don't know what THEY say they're for, but they sure look like concentration camps to me.

#4 “Her intelligence is apparent. It is outrageous that she is being attacked on those grounds,” said Ramona Romero, president of the Hispanic National Bar Association. “I’m assuming these folks are grasping at straws….I wonder if she were a white male we would be hearing that about somebody with the same credentials.”

Why yes you would - and far, far, worse coming from the Liberal left.

Its not her 'intelliect' which we oppose - its her ignornace of the most basic tenant of the Rule of Law in which we are a nation of LAWS and not FEELINGS or EXPERIENCES.

Its her ignorance of the role of a Judge - particulary a Justice of the supreme court - which is to INTERPRET THE LAW NOT SET POLICY.

#5 How's she gonna take this oath with a straight face?

"I, [NAME], do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will administer justice without respect to persons, and do equal right to the poor and to the rich, and that I will faithfully and impartially discharge and perform all the duties incumbent upon me as [TITLE] under the Constitution and laws of the United States. So help me God.''

#6 How's she gonna take this oath with a straight face?

With the same straight face Obama articulates and implements multiple contradictory concepts and actions. For them its all ritual with no binding and no meaning. Their loyalty is to power, nothing more, nothing less.

#7 "I think it is probably important for anybody involved in this debate to be exceedingly careful…”

Listen up you nation of cowards! When it comes to identity politics Conservative white males are low hanging fruit. Don’t ever forget, during the campaign, were the crew that had no shame in branding Bill Clinton and Gerri Ferrao as racists

#8 We will apparently take more care with our criticisms than the Whitehouse takes care of the U.S.A.

#10 Can Sotomayor Pass the Biden Test?

When President Bush nominated Clarence Thomas to the Supreme Court, Sen. Joe Biden had this to say:

I think that the only reason Clarence Thomas is on the Court is because he is black. I don't believe he could have won had he been white. And the reason is, I think it was a cynical ploy by President Bush.

It's two decades later. Clarence Thomas has proven himself a smart, tough, and effective jurist. Joe Biden is now vice president - and his administration has made what looks very like a pick motivated by affirmative action considerations. Maybe somebody should ask Joe Biden whether Sonia Sotomayor would have been nominated if she had been male and white. And the great thing about Joe Biden is -- the guy might blurt the truth.

#11 I listened to Wilcow Majority today on sirius. He advocated that the GOP members open up the nomination questioning to Ms Sotomayor with first commending her on her past Pro-life positions (which she had some). Seriously, as much as I don't like her she's prolly gonna get the nom and by replacing the retiring justice really can't make SCOTUS more screwed up then it already is, in fact, if she is pro-life she either has to denounce herself to her lefty critics or stand up for her past positions, either way would be good for the right.

#12 Shouldn't you be concerned with what's good for Americans?

#13 BP - the assumption here (which I agree with) is that Obama would NEVER nominate someone who agrees with our thought of what was good for Americans. Typical lefty tactic is to refer to our constitution and bill of rights as "living documents" that need to be interpreted in accoedanc with "current thinking". In each case that diminishes personal liberty, increases statist authority and restricts our rights of self-defense. To oppose at each and every opportunity is doing "what's best for Americans". Otherwise, we eventually get civil war. You don't even wanna know how many weapons the avg American in the hinterlands owns and knows how to use.
