Let the games begin

Sonia Sotomayor for the US Supreme Court. Wow. Not only a woman, but a Hispanic woman. Nice. She's a federal appeals judge in NYC. And the Republicans are already on the warpath. "Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee called Sotomayor’s appointment “the clearest indication yet that President Obama’s campaign promises to be a centrist and think in a bipartisan way were mere rhetoric. Sotomayor comes from the far left and will likely leave us with something akin to the "Extreme Court" that could mark a major shift”" But um, she was appointed by Republican George H.W. Bush in the first place. Oh, and he called her Maria Sotomayor; he couldn't even bother to get her first name right. So I'm thinking he has no clue. As usual.
