The Case Against Sotomayor

I was likely to disagree with Obama’s SCOTUS nominee no matter what, but this one’s got me just dumbfounded.

The President, who likes to remind us constantly that he was a Constitutional law professor, should be expected to pick someone who sees the Constitution and the rule of law as the authority.

But no.

From Michelle Malkin,

“Judge Sotomayor’s nomination to the Supreme Court would be very concerning given her hard-left record on the Court of Appeals, where she is recognized by practitioners as one of the more liberal judges.

“Judge Sotomayor’s personal views may cloud her jurisprudence. As Judge Sotomayor explained in a 2002 speech at Berkeley, she believes it is appropriate for a judge to consider their “experiences as women and people of color” in their decision making, which she believes should “affect our decisions.”

Did you catch that?  Decisions based on being a woman, or an Hispanic, rather that the Constitution.
