Sonia Sotomayor is–get this–the first Hispanic person to be appointed to the Supreme Court! And only the third woman!
Also, Republicans, it seems, are worried that she will rule as a liberal “judicial activist.”
Democrats, on the other hand, insist that she will merely “apply the law” in the most mechanical fashion imaginable and never, ever, ever take into consideration the outcomes or effects it may have. That’s a relief!
