Unwise Sen. Corker (R-TN) to Vote Against Sotomayor; Who Needs the Hispanic Vote?

Bob Corker will not be voting for any wise women. The junior senator from Tennessee will stick to the American tradition of voting for men.

“After much deliberation and careful review, I have determined that Judge Sotomayor’s record and many of her past statements reflect a view of the Supreme Court that is different from my own. . I’m disappointed to say, I will not be able to support Judge Sotomayor’s nomination.”

Yeah, she is different. And having four or five women on the High Court would be even more different. It's already hard enough to find women who will shut up and do as they're told.

Corker is the guy who made headlines for refusing to wait a few extra minutes for Sonia Sotomayor to get to his office. She was on crutches. But Bob Corker has never been accused of being wise. Losing Tennessee's sizable Hispanic vote renders Corker into a miserable failure when it comes to making decisions worthy of wise Latina women.
