The Supreme Court pick: Justice denied, racism and sexism exalted.

The loud wrenching sound and terrifying tremor that was observed in Washington DC and north-east Virginia was not an earth quake, tectonic or political. Geologists and historians have confirmed that shaking that was seen and heard earlier this morning was not, as initially thought, a natural disaster. No, the terrestrial tumult was caused by the simultaneous attempts of Justices Earl Warren, Hugo Black, William O. Douglas, Tom Clark, Harry Blackmun and William Brennan to rise from the their graves in Arlington National Cemetary in protest of today’s nominee to fill one of the chairs that they once occupied on our nation’s court of last resort.

President Obama’s nomination of Judge Sonia Sotomayor confirms that the Labor/Socialist/Democrat social agenda prioritizes social organization in the face of not just constitutional barriers like; say, the Fourteenth Amendment’s guarantee of equal protection, but the basic principle of the American judiciary-justice. As reported in the May 14 edition of the New York Times, the proposed, and probably inevitable Justice, actually uttered the following words:

I would hope that a wise Latina woman with the richness of her experiences would more often than not reach a better conclusion than a white male who hasn’t lived that life.”

Nothing has to be read into Judge Sotomayor’s words-she has actually stated her belief that race and gender alone produce superior judicial results. Can anyone who followed the borking of Justices Thomas and Alito, and Chief Justices Rehnquist and Roberts, much less Judge Robert Bork himself, imagine the L/S/D response had any of those Republican nominees stated a belief that white men inherently produce better conclusions and purer justice?

Such a statement of racial and gender bias is antithetical to everything for which historic warriors for equality, like Justices Warren, Black, Douglas, Clark, and so many others, worked into American common and Constitutional law. The majesty of the United States derives in no small part from our search to create a blind law that identically treats similarly situated people. Now, those Justices are told that their legacy to us has been wrong-the law needs “empathy” through racial and gender based life experience.

Then again, these are the same people who invented Jim Crow so maybe the 21st Century L/S/D embrace of racism and sexism should not be all that surprising after all.

Wow Ted, it really is sad how nobody pays any attention to the bullshit that you blog on here anymore. At least when you and Mark Klein, M.D. were pals people came in here just to shit on him and his dumb-ass rantings. Maybe you and Klein should team up again, get Ken (Klein's original campaign manager) to join you too. With that level of genius, boy you could rule the world!
