He’s on the Senate floor right now praising Sonia Sotomayor’s “extraordinary record of academic achievement,” inspiring “life story,” and “great work ethic.” He squawks several times that “elections have consequences.” Predicts that she will be no more liberal than Souter. “Time will tell.” “There are things about this nominee that are troubling.” But he’s gonna […]

Day Two: Sotomayor and ritual reassurances

By Michelle Malkin  •  July 14, 2009 09:42 AM

Scroll down for liveblog and updates… Today, it’s the SCOTUS ceremonial dance with the Senate.

As predicted and expected, the Senate Sotomayor hearing this morning has been marinated in rhetoric about “overcoming adversity.” (Plus two disruptions from protesters.

From the Seattle Times op-ed page: “Sotomayor’s nomination is historic also because she is living successfully with diabetes.” By contrast, the blogosphere has something other than puff pieces on Sotomayor to offer. For example: Does Sotomayor have tax problems? See here from law professor Glenn Reynolds and here from tax professor Paul Caron. From Ed […]

By Michelle Malkin  •  June 9, 2009 09:45 AM

The White House will hold a press conference this morning with Joe Biden announcing law enforcement support for SCOTUS nominee Sonia Sotomayor. Advocacy groups have always thrown their weight around during the confirmation process, but convening official White House events to make such announcements is a bit unusual. A friend jokes: Is Sotomayor running for […]
