La Sra. Sotomayor que Confirma

All the headlines today are already indicating that Sonia Sotomayor will be an "impartial" judge and decide cases on their "merits" if she is confirmed to the Supreme Court.

What did you expect?

Just because she is not expected to change the balance of the court, that is no reason to give Obama a tip in. The truth is, we never know what the judges will do until they are on the court and by that time it's too late. In fact, the justice retiring was expected to be a winner for GOP ideals and clearly turned out to be more of the opposite. Regardless of media spin, the basis of this appointment is identity politics, consistent with Obama's belief system.

So, as I've mentioned before, and as the grandstanding opening statements show, these confirmation hearings are nothing but window dressing on what is otherwise a job interview where the applicant will say all the right things to get the job.

Wouldn't you for a well-paying position with a lifetime appointment?
