We are inundated with the silliness of debate over acceptance of Sotomayor to the Supreme Court. The flexing of idiocy muscle is pronounced as each representative of the people (is this itself a joke?) interrogates this woman. There is only one true criteria. Is she capable of interpreting the constitution and applying the rule of law as one of the important checks and balances of our system of government.
Everything else, including her race, gender or anything else about her is irrelevant. What these interrogations point out is how embarassing our choices for those who would represent the people of our country (Leadership?) really are. This entire process is an embarraassing decision. it is gross labeling at its best and belittling behavior at its worst.
I sincerely hope that everyone of these cross examiners who imply irresponsible and non-proveable inferences will be remembered when their term of officce is up for re-election. Lets get rid of them by voting them out of office.
