Listening to the NPR dorks pronouncing Judge Sotomayor's name. I blush and I cringe.
Even worse is that they are giving all this time to grassley, blowing wind about her demerits. Blech. What an a$$hole.
She's no leftist, by any means. She's not even particularly pro-choice, though she seems to have some sympathy, at least, for gay, lesbian, transgendered rights.
She is very intelligent, she KNOWs law, has enormous active, working experience in jurisprudence. She's a working judge. She has more judicial AND law practice experience than all of the rest of the SCOTUS put together. She'd be the first WORKING lawyer - judge with the Supremes in a very long time.
The rightwingnutz radio dorkdongs are naturally pronouncing her name as 'sodomizer,' since these whackjobs are obsessed with the practice.
Here is the full text of her Judge Mario G. Olmos Memorial Lecture in 2001, delivered at the University of California, Berkeley, School of Law, that has given the rightwingthugz such a heart condition.
