  1. As a white male not nominated for SCOTUS.

    1.) I am white
    2.) I am Male
    3.) I am Fucked. (and not in a good way)

  2. Oh, I like that avatar!

  3. I feel ya bro.
    I just want to win the powerball. That’s not too much to ask, is it?

  4. I don’t know how, but you missed at least three other things. She menstruates during judicial conferences (G. Gordon Liddy). She’s a member of the noose-less and burning cross-less Latin KKK (Tom Tancredo). And her childhood was no tougher than John Derbeyshire’s (John Derbeyshire).

  5. She is also the first latina female woman nominated for SCOTUS with Type 1 diabetes, and puffy eyes.

    As for the *extra credit* item, Rich Lowry did some investigating on the event when she made that racialist statement. You know investigation journalism, something the M(edia) S(upports) M(arxist) used to do, before B-HO.

    Here’s what he came up with.

    I decided to peruse the comments delivered by the other participants in the 2001 Symposium at Berkeley, expecting to find that Judge Sotomayor’s position was fairly mainstream among the presenters at an event sponsored by “La Raza Law Journal.”

    To my surprise, two of the judges speaking after her (she gave the keynote address the night before their presentations), rejected her relativism, her characterization of “[t]he aspiration to impartiality” as “just that”—a mere aspiration, and the endorsement of the use of “prejudices.” None of the judges expressly disagreed with her by name, but given that, in her words, the “focus” of her keynote address was precisely the endorsement of prejudice, the implicit disagreement was fairly palpable and was probably obvious to the audience.

  6. Is it true that she’s Hispanic?

  7. Actually, she’s the second Hispanic. Benjamin Cardozo was arguably the first. 🙂

  8. Well, if B-HO finds out about this, there will be no empathy for the Uighurs in Club Gitmo.
