Open thread on Sotomayor nomination.
Here are Dave Workman's thoughts on the nomination.
Of course, she is not the first Hispanic/Latino Supreme Court Justice. That honor went to Benjamin Cardozo whose parents were Jews from Portugal.

Sotomayor: Gun Ownership "Unconstitutional"
Posted by: RKM at May 26, 2009 05:41 PM
David Kopel has posted a possible debunking of the claim that Sotomayor wrote a paper claiming that private gun ownership is unconstitutional. She is bad enough on the RKBA without people needing to invent stuff. Unless, of course it is a disinformation campaign intended to smear all critics of this nominee.

I feel like I am holding my breath, waiting for the other shoe to drop. All things considered, Sonia Sotomayor doesn't seem like a bad candidate for conservatives. I feared something much worse. I was expecting another Ginsberg, and Sotomayor seems to be far from that. Am I missing something? I expected to run screaming from the room after Obama's nomination. Why am I not terrified?

Because you've got hope?

That was a low blow, but I'm still laughing from it.

She's too dense to read and understand the 14th's article 1 she's too damn stupid to sit on any court.
It's there, in black and white. I am a US citizen, guaranteed the right to KABA, the state where I am ALSO a resident cannot limit the supreme rights guaranteed by the fed constitution. Period!
These cherry picking, illiterate, , inventive, international law loving leftists need to go back to the pathetic public schools that spawned them for some remedial education.
