the co-host of my blogtalkradio program, brother tim, expressed puzzlement the other day over why the repubs were so opposed to sotomayor when it's obvious that she's a perfect choice for them, a law and order freak and a supporter of the corporate model who will probably align quite nicely with the neo-bush obama administration...

i make the above points with great pain since i think a latina supreme court justice would be a great thing just as i thought a black president would be a great thing... hell, i think a black, female president would be a great thing and if it wasn't for the fact that the only product on offer that met that description was she-who-must-not-be-named, i would have gone out and pushed for her...
