Personally, I am not "disappointed" in Sotomayer.  Her opinion in this case comports fully with my expectations of her.

Sotomayor was an idiot on the Federal bench in New York. For anyone to have expected better of her on the USSC is a joke. She got there because she was a political hack, and a legal dim bulb, with the right genome.

She's an Obama nominee. It's pretty much what ANYONE expected of her.

It's amazing that our very freedoms and Constitution as we know it today are at risk.

All depends on who's sitting in the Oval Office and who controls both Houses.

Since it happened before....in 2000 and 2004...the pendulum can certainly swing in the Left's favor.

Think about that for just a moment....Alito, Thomas, Scalia and Roberts should ALL have personal tasters.

Scalia put it about as plainly and simply as the matter could ever be put:

Quote
It has come to this.  Called upon to explore the jurisprudential twilight zone between two errant lines of precedent, we confront a frighteningly bizarre question:  Does the Equal Protection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment  forbid what its text plainly requires?
