Sotomayor Roundup – Gingrich, Malkin, Forbes
I wanted to put up a post with some links to the Sotomayor nomination from out site and others.
The “Rush called a racist” post is really a pretty good look not so much at Rush but some of the comments made by Sotomayor that may ultimately become her undoing.
BTW, Newt Gingrich has now joined the call for her withdrawal because of what he believes to be racist comments.
On Wednesday, Gingrich tweeted: “Imagine a judicial nominee said ‘my experience as a white man makes me better than a latina woman.’ new racism is no better than old racism.”
The “Liberal Talk Show Host” post is a great example of a nomination shell game. The left is pushing its “compelling story” line rather than compelling credentials which may or may not exist but when pressed … Press could only come up with “She’s the sixth Catholic”?
BTW … Michelle Malkin is all over this one too.
Democrats are eager to celebrate diversity, you see, as long as the diversely-pigmented pledge allegiance to the Left for life.
Finally a link to an article I talked about today at Forbes
I have written about Didden in Forbes. The case involved about as naked an abuse of government power as could be imagined. Bart Didden came up with an idea to build a pharmacy on land he owned in a redevelopment district in Port Chester over which the town of Port Chester had given Greg Wasser control. Wasser told Didden that he would approve the project only if Didden paid him $800,000 or gave him a partnership interest. The “or else” was that the land would be promptly condemned by the village, and Wasser would put up a pharmacy himself. Just that came to pass. But the Second Circuit panel on which Sotomayor sat did not raise an eyebrow. Its entire analysis reads as follows: “We agree with the district court that [Wasser’s] voluntary attempt to resolve appellants’ demands was neither an unconstitutional exaction in the form of extortion nor an equal protection violation.”
There’s more out there but for now this should do and we will add as time goes on.
Wow! That Didden case is certainly telling. Almost as egregious as the eminent domain land grab approved by the courts in Kelo.
Satomayor is either stupid, ignorant or corrupt. Or maybe all of the above. And just when I thought the Firemen vs. New Haven case was an open and shut case of her inherent racist perspective. No wonder the One finds her so appealing. If the Republicans drop the ball on this one, they should be put out to pasture.
There is an excellent summary of Sotomayor's deficiencies at http://www.committeeforjustice.org/blog/2009/05/g…
Some of the best quotes are from liberals!
