Oh baby, the conservatives are out of their minds over Obama's choice of Sonia Sotomayor for Supreme Court judge. Remember, conservatives are terrified of women... especially smart ones. Personally, I think there will be too many Catholics on the Supreme Court, but it appears that she has a good record and I support her.
Faux News, ABC News and other conservative corporate media enterprises have taken a quote from Sotomayor out of context and are blasting it over the airwaves. The cons are saying that Sotomayer suggested that Latina or Latino judges are better than white male judges, but she was speaking specifically about race and sex discrimination cases. They left that part out. Now they are saying she's a racist as if racists aren't already on the Supreme Court.
What's hilarious is that conservative media outlets are challenging Sotomayor's intelligence. She graduated at the top of her class in Princeton. Those same pundits lauded Sarah Palin's alleged intelligence. Sarah Palin is an idiot.
The other hilarious talking point is that she's an "activist" judge. Do these pundits realize how many conservative activist judges are on the Supreme Court right now? Activist doesn't automatically mean "liberal." Sotomayor isn't exactly a liberal either. But truth doesn't come easy for conservatives. They will twist anything to suit their needs.
