WASHINGTON — Republican Sen. John McCain says he'll oppose Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor when the Senate votes on her confirmation this week.

The Arizona senator calls Sotomayor a judicial activist who tried to walk back from that record during her confirmation hearings. He says President Barack Obama's nominee has used her position as a judge to try to change the law.

McCain is one of several Republicans from states with heavily Hispanic populations to come out against Sotomayor, the daughter of Puerto Rican parents raised in a New York City housing project and educated in the Ivy League.

McCain says Sotomayor's life story is inspiring and compelling, but he says that's not enough to qualify her for a position on the high court.

Sounds like McCain is trying to get his Republican buddies to stop calling him RINO...

Oh yeah, I mean, it isn't as if she went to Princeton or Yale or was a federal judge for eons or was put into the federal courts by a Republican president or anything like that!

It's just a heartwarming story of an unqualified immigrant.

I think a lot of Republicans who would oppose her ordinarily will not want another reason for Latinos not to vote for them the next time around so they'll be careful about how loud they get.

80 votes maybe?


(I expect at least one more nominee in the president's first term, who will take a ton more flak from the right)
You get the win

I get place.

and Bluer gets show.


Who would have predicted Kennedy would not vote for her?

Here we go again....maybe?

The Associated Press: Justice Stevens slows his hiring at high court

If only Obama would have the gonads to put Pam Karlan on that court. I imagine Rush Limbaugh would implode almost instantaneously.

For that reason alone, I would support her.
