BREAKING: Sonia is it!

by Jeremy Hooper

Picture 1-266
Sonia Sotomayor will be Pres. Obama's Supreme Court nominee. Official announcement at 10:15AM (ET).

**UPDATE: The official annouancement:

**MORE: We're still searching her gay rights record. Though we do know that she once preserved the the right of grown men to parade around in tight pants during the dog days summer.

**MORE: Expect to see the right widely circulate this clip:

Your thoughts

And this is on foxnews.com: And in 2005, when Sotomayor spoke on a Duke University forum, she said, "All of the legal defense funds out there, they're looking for people with court of appeals experience" because "the court of appeals is where policy is made."

I will bet that those who dislike her appointment will be more likely to use the the "truncated version." It is more likely to fire up the "legislating from the bench" people and that will just give her appointment's opponents more allies.

Side note: "truncated version" is such an apt description! I love it!
