Sotomayor Defends the "Good Parts Version" of Constitution

Anyone who has read The Princess Bride (as opposed to seeing the still funny, but vastly inferior movie) knows the importance of reducing any great work to the "good parts version." Unfortunately, in 2004 Judge Sotomayor did not think the Second Amendment belonged in the good parts version of the Constitution.

"A 2004 opinion she joined also cited as precedent that 'the right to possess a gun is clearly not a fundamental right.'"
"Not a fundamental right?" It's the second one! It's as fundamental as the freedom of speech, the press, and right to assembly. Her position is not so shocking considering racists, like Sotomayor, traditionally prefer non-gun-related means of getting their point across.

No word on whether Sotomayor's robe has a
matching hood, but I'm looking into it.

Fortunately, our current President is a Constitutional scholar, a defender of individual liberty, and the smartest man in any room. I'm sure he would set her straight on this before submitting her nomination.
White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs said Thursday that Obama was 'very comfortable with her interpretation of the Constitution being similar to that of his.'"

Holy crap!


  1. What holy crap? Obama thinks the Constitution is a fundamentally flawed document. No surprise here.


  2. Oh yeah! I forgot that he proposed his own good parts version.
