Sotomayor's Senate Drama Begins Today
The drama of Judge Sonia Sotomayor's senate confirmation hearings begin this morning. Republicans can't keep her off the Court so they will settle for trying to paint her as a radical woman who hates white men.
Funny that. Sonia Sotomayor will be the first Hispanic and only the 3rd woman ever to sit on the U.S. Supreme Court. The woman will be grilled by the 17 men and 2 women (Democrats) who make up the senate judiciary committee.
And white male Republican Senators argue that she is the bigot!
