Well, I've spent much of the last two days considering where to come down on this issue...and I have decided to recommend that the Republican Party punt on this one (unless they find that she's been funneling money to terrorists). She is 1) a woman 2) Hispanic 3) already twice confirmed for the federal bench. It would be hard to make a case that she's unqualified, and if we tried, we'd be painted as racists and sexists. OF COURSE we don't agree with her....but there's no upside to fighting them on this one. She won't change the balance of the court, and we don't have the votes to stop her. Let Rush, Hannity and Ann Coulter have their way with this---Michael Steele and Republican Senators should just put their weapons back in their holsters, be respectful, and vote no.
