Sotomayor Changes Tune on “Wise Latina” Comment
Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor made the rounds on Capitol Hill today, meeting with Senators of both parties. According to Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Pat Leahy (D-VT), Sotomayor addressed her controversial “wise Latina” remarks from 2001 during their meeting. Leahy would not say whether the nominee acknowledged that she misspoke when she made the comments, but her attempt to explain them only adds more confusion.
Sotomayor, Obama, and the Felon Vote
Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor is an advocate of allowing felons to vote. “Advocate” is a loaded word when referring to a judge, and with good reason.

So, which disqualifies her the most: racial bigotry, stunning incompetence, or disrespect for the Constitution?
So, Obama decided to just throw another one in the face of Constitution-loving, freedom-loving Americans, just to remind us that he won. Big surprise, that.

Judicial Activism and the Polarization of America
**America was never intended to be a nation where everyone in every state shared the same values. The original colonies had their own distinct cultures, religions, and traditions, and they wanted to make certain that those were preserved before they agreed to enter the national union.
