Sonia Sotomayor - Female? Check. Hispanic? Check. Empathetic? Check. Understands Checks and Balances? Meh.

The media seems to feel that the next Supreme Court Justice should be a hispanic woman, and places Sonia Sotomayor as one of the favorites right now.

If you're not familiar with Sotomayor (What? You don't follow the 2nd Circuit US Court of Appeals as closely as, say, the NBA playoffs?), here's a little clip of her thoughts on the roll of the Judicial Branch of our great nation.

(via: Hot Air and Verum Serum)

Her tongue-in-cheek "[judges] don't make policy" is a telling, if somewhat sad, reflection of how she views the American judicial system.

Don't forget to vote in the new poll: What is the most important characteristic to consider when nominating a Supreme Court Justice?

  1. The answer I would like to pick is not available in the poll...Can I submit "That his name is Dick Cheney" as a write-in candidate? I can think of nothing more amusing than the liberals having to live with Cheney in power for as long as he chooses to serve : ) Qualifications are not important; this is irritating the Left that I am talking about here. It takes precedence over all other issues.
