Gee, I know I didn't want Sotomayor confirmed, but I have no idea why that might have been. She must have said something that put me off, but for the life of me, I can't remember what that was.

Oh, and did I mention I'm an Independent now?

Via Taegan, re: Crist's interview with the Miami Herald:

Adam Smith: "It couldn't possibly because he was in trouble in the Republican primary back then, could it?"

Is he just being a dick, or was there something fishy in Sotomayors answers? I know which way I lean, but am I missing something. Thanks to FDL for grabbing this, I heard it and was flummoxed.

Shallow Thoughts: SCOTUS at SOTU edition

Today's Shallow Thought:

Media punditiots and GOPers have defended Supreme Court Justice Alito's grimacing and mouthing his disagreement during President Obama's State of the Union address. If instead, Justice Sotomayor had smiled and mouthed approval, would the same people be defending her?

That was today's Shallow Thought. Thank you for wading in.

This made me so proud:



Justice Sotomayor’s opinion in the case, Mohawk Industries v. Carpenter, No. 08-678, marked the first use of the term “undocumented immigrant,” according to a legal database. The term “illegal immigrant” has appeared in a dozen decisions.

Terms like “illegal alien” and “illegal immigrant” are considered pejorative and offensive by immigrants rights organizations. (HT: ImmigrationProf Blog)

Now imagine who Bush would have (and has) nominated.

Done? Good.

Now grab some Pepto and imagine what Lou Dobbs must be thinking.

I'll stop pushing unpleasant thoughts into your noggins now. I'm sure you'll come up with many more all on your own.
