Local paper discovers another law professor

One who's actually examined Sonia Sotomayor's record.

In contrast to the one committed instead to rehearsing conservative Republican talking points and implying — not only without any evidence but against all evidence — that Judge Sotomayor is unable to separate her personal views from the process of judging, and that Sotomayor will get on an activist breakaway once she's freed from the constraints of the lower district and appellate courts.

Sotomayor's primary transgressions? She's too honest, too candid.

It could be worse, I suppose, and it will surely get worse beginning on July 13, when Sonia Sotomayor faces a gaggle of Republican Senators who don't even know what "fundamental right" means and pretend to be oblivious to the Militia Clause of the Second Amendment.

Prediction: If and when the U.S. Supreme Court decides that the Second Amendment restricts State and local governments, Associate Justice Sotomayor will be among the majority* and conservative Republican avatar Clarence Thomas will dissent.

* Assuming the Court accepts one or more of the currently percolating cases in which Judge Sotomayor did not participate.

Coming soon: Leah Vukmir believes Sonia Sotomayor is pretty "dim" and moreover, is hostile to the constitutional right of illegal aliens to keep and bear submachine guns and surface-to-air missiles.
