The Right Choice

Just so you know, it sounds like Sonia Sotomayor is a great choice for the Supreme Court. Credentialed, experienced, fairly centrist. Summa cum laude at Princeton. Yale Law School. Assistant DA in Manhatten. District Court Judge (appointed by President George H. W. Bush). Federal Appellate Justice for 10 years. Widely respected across the board.

Conservatives think Obama is doing the quota thing by picking a minority woman. Wrong. Why do conservatives think only white men can do this job? If they are credentialed and experienced, what does it matter what their skin color or gender? Simple fairness and balance would seem to argue that with all the white male justices in the past, the next 50 should be minority women!

Calling her a 'Latino racist' just shows how radical the Republican right has become.
