So, once again, someone receives a leg up based solely on their race, rather than qualifications..

Some people will look on this day as a great one, but I can tell you, with certainty, that the Founding Fathers weep.

Why didn't Jay Severin say "WITH" certainty, and Founding "FATHERS"? Is he a writer?

I typed, as verbatim as I could, what Jay Severin (http://www.wtkk.biz/blogs/jayseverin/) said on the radio (He's a local radio talk show host). The mis-types were entirely my own, as I was in a hurry, and I don't usually have to deal with people who know I can spell correcting every oversight, instead of just taking the obvious message.

Did you have the same name?

I sent Lindsay an email when he voted to move Sonya out of committee.

I didn't get a response, I guess his staffers don't know what "FOAD" means.

Things just keep getting better and better. The cash for clunkers thing was extended. Sotomayor (surely she is Asian in there, and they're real smart, so don't freak out!) is now confirmed. The only thing left is healthcare and I imagine that will move forward as well. I cannot remember (since knowing y'all) when I've ever been so at peace.

Look, Sotomayor was qualified in every way. I really think a LOT of people have a problem with our President being bi-racial, and Sotomayor no doubt is as well. Long live diversity and smarts!

You have got the diversity part down pat. However, I question the smarts. Their batting average on performance is not so hot. Sot. was overturned 2/3 of the time, the O will not release his college transcripts, and his approval rating on the economy and health care is heading for the shittier.

Jade you really need to do some research. Sotomayor has been overturned as much,if not more, than the 9th Circus. She let's her FEELINGS, not the law, dictate her rulings. If she wanted to change this country she should've attained a legislative postion not judicial...I think I speak for a majority when I say, I don't give a F-BOMB about Obama's (or Sotomayor's) genetics. Its their ideology I can't stand. They go against everything this country was founded on.

As for the last statement, we're not the Diversified States of America...
