ZERO Chooses Sonia Sotomayor For Supreme Court

“I would hope that a wise Latina woman with the richness of her experiences would more often than not reach a better conclusion [as a judge] than a white male who hasn’t lived that life.” — Judge Sonia Sotomayor, in her Judge Mario G. Olmos Law and Cultural Diversity Lecture at the University of California (Berkeley) School of Law in 2001

Sounds tad racists to me, but hey we can always use a racists on the Supreme Court.

It's a victory for Hispanic women, checked that box. Hey Hispanic poor lady, you empathetic, yeah, you're in. She is from the school of "Legal Realism", in case you have never heard of that.

Here is the oath: According to Title 28, Chapter I, Part 453 of the United States Code, each Supreme Court Justice takes the following oath:

"I, [NAME], do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will administer justice without respect to persons, and do equal right to the poor and to the rich, and that I will faithfully and impartially discharge and perform all the duties incumbent upon me as [TITLE] under the Constitution and laws of the United States. So help me God."

Word empathy not in there --- That's what she reads and then does what she wants. Rule of law, nope, whatever.

That's her, saying "court is where policy is made". The empathy pick. Courts interpret laws Ms Sonia, they don't make policy. You do have a J.D. degree, don't you?

So what judicial temperance, great works while on the judiciary, distinguishes this Hispanic poor lady, Harvard Yale graduate, to be a member of the U.S. Suprme Court? Yes.
