A) Doing nothing worthwhile at all.
B) Doing that which is the most idiotic.
While I was shaking my head over the nomination of Sotomayor to replace Souter on the SCOTUS, I paid a visit to my new BFF, the Conservative Pup. If you want an eloquent and concise report on how disturbingly wrong Ms. Sotomayor's appointment would be, go read the whole thing. Here's an excerpt:
The umpire calls balls and strikes, no matter the skin color,
religion, or economic status of the batter. He calls them as he sees them,
within the careful guidelines laid out for everybody to follow. The
referee calls an offside penalty in a football game without any thought
whatsoever to the “underdog” status of one of the teams.
Can you imagine watching baseball, football, basketball,
tennis, golf, or any sport knowing that the rules would be adjusted for the
individual teams playing? How much fun would it be to watch a football
game knowing in advance that because one of the teams was heavily outmatched by
the other the refs were going to apply the rules with “empathy?”
The NY Times quoted her as saying, "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". Which might just boil down to if a radical muslim chooses to behead your daughter as part of his definition of an honor-killing, and the case somehow goes to the supreme court, then her "empathy" for that murderer's social condition may pursuade her to exonerate the bastard.
Sotomayor actually refers to herself as "wise." Pathetic.
