I am slightly worried about President Obama’s choice of Sonia Sotomayor for the Supreme Court.

First, she is from New York.  New Yorkers in my experience wear UGGS. Yeah, I’ve heard that they are ridiculoulsy warm and cozy, but they still make you look silly.

Second, just as a common citizen I am concerned with judicial expansion, much more so when the candidate in question admits she thinks policy is made in the judiciary.

Now, I have seen the footage, and it doesn’t seem that bad.   After all I wasn’t there and don’t know the context.  However, it is important to remind the masses that the Supreme Court reviews the constitutionality–whether they are in accord with the Constitution–of laws.  It does not propose them.

Great.  Now that that is out of the way, let the confirmation circus begin!
