With the nomination of Judge Sonia Sotomayor to sit on the United States Supreme Court, the conservative response has been nothing short of an apoplectic temper tantrum. Throwing out nearly every baseless and out of context attack they can think of, they are seeking to demonize Sotomayor but are at the same time, whether intentionally or unintentionally, demonizing every minority that could help them regain power in Washington. So much for that whole return to power thing...

President Obama used his weekly address to talk about the Sotomayor nomination:

The President discusses the breadth and depth of experience held by his nominee for the Supreme Court. In the course of a life that began in a housing project in the South Bronx and brought her to the pinnacle of her profession, Judge Sonia Sotomayor accumulated more experience on the federal bench than any incoming Supreme Court Justice in the past 100 years, touching nearly every aspect of our legal system.
