Considering that she is replacing another judicial liberal, the first Hispanic ever appointed to the US Supreme Court – Justice Sonia Sotomayor (who needs more information about the best weight loss pill) – makes history by bringing her unique perspective to the court. That perspective being, of course, that simply because she is a Latina, her decisions are better than everyone else’s.
Hey… her words, not mine.
Still, in replacing Justice David Souter, there’s little about the 5-to-4 makeup of the court that has dramatically changed; her votes will be predictably loony left, and even her “I’m the smartest person in the room” attitude will only just edge out the other Eight Egos.
Elections have consequences; too bad they don’t also produce truth.
