Analysis Of Upcoming Sotomayor Debate—You’ll Have To Learn About Supreme Court On Your Own
Below is analysis and a transcript of upcoming debate over the appointment of Judge Sonia Sotomayor for the Supreme Court.
“Blah Blah Blah.”
She’ll legislate from the bench. She’s an activist judge. She’s a liberal.
Blah Blah Blah.
Same stuff every time.

President Obama has said he’s looking for a mix of real-life experience and knowledge of the law for the Supreme Court.
It’s seems that this is just what he’s found.
I’m not saying you should not read about Judge Sotomayor. You should. Here’s a good story to get started.
What I’m saying is that instead of following the moronic debate that will end with Judge Sotomayor being confirmed, one could learn about the history of the court and gain some context beyond the same old junk.
You won’t learn this stuff in school, on CNN or with a Twitter message. You’ll have to learn it on your own.
In many respects, the best sources remain books, a good daily newspaper and your own hard work.
