Editorial: Back to the Drawing Board, Mr. Obama
Barack Obama needs to go back to the drawing board and see if he can come up with a Supreme Court nominee who is something other than a self-declared racist termagant.
And while he is at it, maybe he can find one who respects the Constitution, honors the rule of law, and doesn't consider denigrating the Separation of Powers the height of sophisticated wit.
Sonia Sotomayor's rags-to-riches persona—as we have now been told ad infinitum by the mainstream media—is indeed inspiring. Born into relative poverty to Puerto Rican parents, she raised herself up to a preeminent position in mainstream American society. As have tens of millions of other impoverished children born to Italian parents, African parents, Polish parents, Japanese parents, and, in fact, Puerto Rican parents in this land of equal opportunity.
Unfortunately, Ms. Sotomayor seems to have forgotten that the emphasis there is on equal. Which is why it is entirely inappropriate to for someone aspiring to be one of just nine final adjudicators of the Constitution of the United States to unburden herself of such a racist, sexist obloquy as, "I would hope that a wise Latina woman with the richness of her experiences would more often than not reach a better conclusion than a white male who hasn't lived that life." . . .
