RINOs Confirm Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor

And people are surprised? You'd have to be very naive to think that there was any chance in hell she WASN'T going to be appointed. It's the same claptrap as always - Democrats push in a largely unknown constituent with a shady background, "Republicans" pretend to care and oppose the nomination, Democrats accuse "Republicans" of being racist, "Republicans" give in and take it up the back end.

The Senate confirmed Sonia Sotomayor Thursday as the first Hispanic justice on the Supreme Court The vote was 68-31 for Sotomayor, President Barack Obama's first high court nominee. She becomes the 111th justice and just the third woman to serve.

Democrats praised the 55-year-old Sotomayor as a mainstream moderate. But most Republicans voted against her, saying she'd bring personal bias and a liberal agenda to the bench.

Senators took the rare step of assembling at their desks on the Senate floor for the historic occasion, rising from their seats to cast their votes.

She replaces retiring Justice David Souter, liberal named by a Republican president, and she is not expected to alter the court's ideological split.
