I am so totally thrilled that Obama nominated Sonia Sotomayor (see the previous post here).
And all you stupid conservative critics, damn straight being a woman and Hispanic affects her decisions. A judge’s ethnicity and gender always affect their decisions. The only difference being, if you’re white and male, you don’t have to explain yourself because you are “normal”. We could use some more Hispanic and female thinking on the court (not that Justice Ginsburg isn’t holding her own). Get on with the confirming already.
