Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor to helm New Year’s Eve Times Square Ball Drop

The countdown to the new year in Times Square is getting some high-profile help from U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor. The organizers of the annual celebration said Sunday that Sotomayor will lead the final 60-second countdown and push the ceremonial button to signal the descent of the Times Square…

Man arrested for ‘scamming nuns’: FBI

A US fugitive charged with swindling several nuns has been arrested in Las Vegas after more than three months on the run, the US Federal Bureau of Investigation said. Adriano Sotomayor, 54, of New Jersey, has been charged with 13 counts of wire fraud and is accused of having scammed…

Why are they so scared?

Via Atrios, Craig Crawford shoots and scores, when discussing the reprehensible behavior of Senate Republicans towards Sonia Sotomayor, particularly Lindsay Graham’s. They are coming across as a bunch of snarky and bitter old white men who cannot bear the thought of their kind losing power. Well, exactly. It’s hard to…

Well, when you put it like that

The Women’s Media Center put together a devastating video showing how much the “criticism” against Sotomayor is just dredging up fears about white men losing complete dominance over the official seats of power. Please click the link and rate the video. The comments at YouTube are swarming with people who…

Supreme Court justice hearings as political theater

Confession: I haven’t had the stomach to flip on the TV and watch the Sotomayor hearings, because I have so little tolerance for the charade that there’s no such as fundamental political differences that inform the process. Judges pretending they don’t have opinions, Republican Senators pretending they have any intention…

Republicans are angered beyond belief, friends, because they only have five weeks to read over all of Sotomayor’s opinions. Several Republicans said they were upset with Leahy for scheduling the hearing without much GOP input and indicated they may use delay tactics in committee and on the floor to give…

A bit more about the National Review cover

After waging a short, fruitless battle with Althouse’s commenters to try to get them to understand just what’s racist about a slant-eyed, bucktoothed caricature of Sotomayor as Buddha, I retreat to the friendlier confines of Pandagon to point out that the cover is modeled after a very specific painting, and…

More know-nothing racist yapping from Pat Buchanan

Okay, this has been on the backburner for a couple of days, but I have to address it. Matt Yglesias catches Pat Buchanan expressing his true feelings about people whose first language isn’t English—that they’re stupid and should be permanently barred from ever even being considered worthy of college or…

In Black World, Nouns Are Verbs And Verbs Are Magic Planes With Puppy Pilots

The guy in charge of leading the opposition to Sonia Sotomayor has declared that blacks, unlike Hispanics, “don’t think like everyone else“. In more Sotomayor news, Newt Gingrich doesn’t believe he should have called Sonia Sotomayor a racist. Sort of. You see, he still thinks she’s a racist who says…

Two-faced Sotomayor claims to dislike Brussel sprouts; concedes that they are a healthy food

This hit piece against Sotomayor by Sharon Thiemer that the AP chose to run is breathtaking in its perfection in the art of either stupidity or intellectual dishonesty, though I can’t tell which one it is. The premise is that Sotomayor is two-faced, because she claims to have lived in…
