Unimpressed by the Wise Latina

Folks, come on. She’s an affirmative action judge. What else did you expect?

Seidman: “I was completely disgusted by Judge Sotomayor’s testimony today. If she was not perjuring herself, she is intellectually unqualified to be on the Supreme Court. If she was perjuring herself, she is morally unqualified.”

Stras: “I would say that this is not a judge that understands the role of the federal judiciary. A court without subject matter jurisdiction should not decide the merits of an appeal; it is the very definition of an advisory opinion. What I find ironic is that there are a number of difficult cases where the panel in which Judge Sotomayor participated did not write a reasoned opinion (Didden, Maloney, and especially Ricci), but she wrote a lengthy, reasoned opinion over an issue in which the court had no jurisdiction. Go figure.”

Speaking for myself, I couldn’t possibly care less. I hope they put the Wise Latina on the court along with a black lesbian, a crippled Jew, a Somali jihadist from Minnesota, Michelle Obama, and Bill Clinton. The Supreme Court has been a total farce for decades, better that the farce be made open and apparent to all.

And bring back Rehnquist’s gold lamé-striped robes! Better yet, dress them all in gold lamé burqahs.
