Senate confirms Judge Sonia Sotomayor's Supreme Court nomination, 68-31, making her the first Hispanic on the high court.

Sotomayor becomes first Hispanic on high court
The U.S. Senate has confirmed Judge Sonia Sotomayor, in a 68-31 vote, as the first Hispanic justice on the Supreme Court. Nine Republicans joined a unanimous Democratic caucus in supporting her nomination. The 55-year-old federal appeals court judge becomes the 111th person to sit on the high court, and the third woman justice.

She's not the first Hispanic on the Supreme Court. Benjamin Cardozo was. He served from 1932-38. He was of Portuguese-Jewish descent. The Laughing Latina is the first female Hispanic appointed to the bench. (Why is she always laughing? Is she high, or just weird?) She will prove to be a massive error.

He was elected.
She is qualified if ODIOUS.
He should get the judge he wants as long as she measures up objectively.

As should the next (truly) conservative prez

Let's WIN the next set of elections and make sure when Kennedy and Breyer go, their replacements don't think one race and one gender decision making is better than another

If we want to win, we have to field a better Candidate than John McCain. McCain was the worst Republican pick since Bob Dole.

It's as if the Republican Party does not at all understand the electorate.

I called it back in 2005. The story America wanted to tell itself was that it had opened up enough to vote in a black President. I said back then that if Condi Rice ran, she would win.

I think she could easily have beaten Obama, if she had run.

Mitt Romney might have a chance, but as a guy who comes out of marketing I say, the voter votes for the guy who sells the brand they want to buy into. The brand includes a whole experience, a story, everything. Romney is a very boring guy. Even if he is a good-looking guy with a great smile, even if he is smart, it doesn't matter. His story is not the story the American people want to tell themselves, nor is he a brand experience that people want to have.

Sarah Palin has everything it would take except for smarts. I'm not saying she is intelligent, but you have to know what you don't know, and you have to know how to get around it. I'm talking about that kind of smarts.

She hasn't developed that yet.

Barack Obama also lacks that kind of smarts. He says stupid things all the time, but the stupid things he says fit the media-driven leftist paradigm so well, that no one notices.

If Palin can get more savvy, she could win. Other strong possibilities would be DeMint, Michael Steele, John Bolton (depending upon the circumstances - he is our generations Churchill, destined to be marginalized until things go completely awry.

No doubt about that.

John Bolton (depending upon the circumstances - he is our generations Churchill, destined to be marginalized until things go completely awry.

At the rate the BHO administration is going, the awry might just happen.

We were gonna get a commie-lib on the court no matter what. There are not enough Rep votes to stop it. Better this dumb as a box of rox idiot than some smart commie-lib. Scalia may persuade her.
