John McCain to Vote NO on Sotomayor

And the Republican death wish lives. That's fine. John McCain just kissed the rest of the Hispanic vote good-bye:

Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) announced today that he will vote against Sonia Sotomayor, Pres. Obama's nominee to become the first Hispanic SCOTUS justice. . More than 30% of AZ's population is Hispanic, according to the latest Census estimates, and exit-poll data shows McCain won only 41% of the Hispanic vote last fall in his home state. According to that data, Hispanics made up roughly 16% of the '08 electorate in the state.
