The Sotomayor Complex

A firestorm of controversy has erupted today following President Obama's nomination of Judge Sonia Sotomayor to the Supreme Court.

Sotomayor's record has now been opened and her history seems to contradict the President's claim that she possesses a moderate voice and is a fair jurist.

Perhaps the most troubling statement she made was this:

"...The Court of Appeals is where policy is made."

I can not underestimate the danger of confirming to the highest court in the land, a woman who completely rejects the legislative and executive branches.

This kind of sentiment epitomizes liberal judicial activism and represents a growing threat within this country. These judges refuse to acknowledge the presence of any governing body in America, excluding of course, the court system.

This startling revelation is more than enough cause to demand Sotomayor's immediate withdrawal as a nominee.

But the debate took an unexpected turn today...

Based on prior court decisions and documented speeches, accusations have been made today that Judge Sotomayor is a racist.

This conversation has no place in the debate.

As I wrote earlier today Republicans must keep this debate as civil and professional as possible. If the GOP launches a prodigious assault on this woman they will only be playing into the charges hurled by the disgraced General Colin Powell that the Republicans are a "small tent" party.

With the plethora of Ms. Sotomayor's professional shortcomings, surely the GOP can conjure up enough evidence to force the President to withdraw this absurd nominee.
