Obama to Nominate "Me, Too" to Supreme Court

The Associated Press is reporting that President Obama is about to nominate Judge Sonia Sotomayor to replace retiring Justice David Souter.

Like most Obama nominations thus far, she seems to have been selected with ideological conformity and demographic diversity being more important criteria than competence, and is more interested in implementing identity politics and legislating from the bench than strictly interpreting of the Constitution.

Intellectually, Sotomayor is said to be an inferior compared to those Justices already on the court regardless of their political leanings, and it is expected that if she is confirmed, she will do little more than be a "me, too" to the more competent left-leaning justices already established.

In short, the choice of Sotomayer is precisely the kind of disappointing selection Americans are coming to expect out of the current administration, meeting only lowered expectations.

So is having a marginally competent two-fer who supports some of the worst of the liberal agenda the best we can hope for?

I think the senate Republicans should Bork her big time...not that those emasculated, beltway-seduced, cowards will do much more than mouth platitudes for the suckers back home....

I am more concerned about the disruption of Israel's missile defense by Obama. that is clearly to leave Israel as an open target to Iranian nukes. This is Rev Wright's preaching in action. For shame Obama, and on Israel's anniversary no less. And to think of all those Jews cheering for Obama in NYC at the restaurant and in the theatre, may you all be like an onion with your head in the ground and your fee in the air!
