Justice Sotomayer

Justice Sotomayer

She is going to get confirmed and she is going to become our next Supreme Court justice. I don’t think this because she is qualified, which she is, but because Americans don’t generally care about the Supreme Court. The ability of the Republican Party to rally the troops in a supreme court battle are limited by the American peoples lack of understanding of how important the court is. Although they have specialized in placing conservatives in to the courts system, which led to their victory in 2000, they won’t be able to stop Sotomayer from being confirmed.

The more important thing to consider is whether Sotomayer is on the right side of the abortion debate. If we do not want Roe vs. Wade to be overturned, it may be important to know where she stands on the continuation of a woman’s right to choose.

Pat Buchanan

The Sotomayer debate has allowed Pat to speak out, once again, on the plight of White Males. For some reason people keep inviting him on television. Pat makes arguments that I disagree with, but that’s not why I’m confused that he’s being tapped in the debate over Sotomayer’s appointment. I can’t figure out why someone who is as easily flustered and incoherent as Pat Buchanan is constantly asked for his opinion. He comes across like someone’s angry southern Grandfather. Pat Buchanan has all the negative qualities of Clint Eastwood’s character from Grand Torino and none of his redeeming traits. It’s never going to be 1950 again Pat.

Senator Al Franken

The Republican Party is not going to regain power by being obstructionists. Americans can be slow to react, but we’re not stupid. We believe, at least north of the mason Dixon line, in Democracy. Stalling because you’ve lost an election is unacceptable and Al Franken should have been seated a long time ago. Hopefully, the Republicans come to their senses and Minnesota changes their election laws to prevent this from ever happening again.
