Questions for Sotomayor

Filed under: Uncategorized — Kevin M @ 7:43 am

President Obama has gone for the left-wing identity-politics choice.  Sonia Sotomayor is his choice to fill the idiot’s seat on the Supreme Court.  She seems more qualified than David Souter ever was, but that’s a fairly low bar.  She’s also further left.

Since her confirmation seems assured, the only contest that remains is political — can we use this to show just how far left the Democrats have gone?  They didn’t believe us last election, but maybe we can offer some proof.

Some questions for Judge Sotomayor:

  • Is there an individual right to keep and bear arms for personal defense?  If so, what limitations can be imposed?
  • What is “hate speech”?  Can merely offensive speech be prohibited or punished by government?
  • What does “free exercise” mean in the First Amendment?  Can “free exercise” ever include discriminatory behavior?
  • Do a citizen’s rights or duties differ depending on the history of some group they may identify with?
  • What did you mean when you suggested that a Latina would usually make better decisions than a white male?
  • Can any government service be denied to persons present in the country illegally?

  2. I have a few more questions for not only Sotomayor, but ANY Supreme Court Nominee at my blog.

  3. “I’m not going to address any legal issues which could potentially come in front of the court.”

  4. How can Sotomayor sit on any cases involving race or immigration since she’s a member of “La Raza”?

    No, I don’t think Ginsburg, an ACTIVE ACLU Lawyer, should have been confirmed either.

  5. Erections have consequences, PCD. The electorate got the hots for Obama and Sotomayor is one of our love-children.

  6. I denounce you for that sexist remark. Do you know if Sotomayor is not a Lesbian?

  7. I would need to read her poetry. (Link is safe.)

  8. Colin Powell/Gerald Ford/Bob Michael Republicans won’t ask any hard questions or examine Sotomayor closely. They don’t want to see the yellow streak down their own backs.
