Sotomayor: Eminent, Imminent;
Among many words Sotomayor confused with other words are Imminent and Eminent, apparently which she does not know the difference. The Weekly Standard:
Ed Whelan writes:
Judge Sotomayor says “eminent” when she means “imminent,” “providence” instead of “province,” “story of knowledge” instead of “store of knowledge,” and so on. Does the fact that she is a Latina immunize her from attention to that sort of (admittedly not uncommon) foible?
To answer Whelan's question: These malapropisms would only be noteworthy and revealing if they were spoken by a certain country bumpkin Republican governor of Alaska. When a wise Latina accidentally says "vagrancies of ... the moment" instead of "vagaries of ... the moment" during the oral argument of the Ricci case, we're supposed to ignore the slip-up[.]
Sotomayor also said she doesn't know if people have a right to defend themselves. Dakota Voice:
“Senator Tom Coburn (R-OK) finished an excellent line of questioning this morning and Sotomayor’s answers were telling. Obama’s nominee to the Supreme Court could not answer a simple question as to ‘do you have a personal opinion, or can you give me your opinion, of whether or not in this county I personally, as an individual citizen, have a right to self defense?’ Sotomayor answered, ‘I — as I said, I don’t know.’”
Coburn: But do you have an opinion, or can you give me your opinion, of whether or not in this country I personally, as an individual citizen, have a right to self-defense?
Sotomayor: I — as I said, I don’t know.
According to Liberals, the USA cannot defend itself when attacked. According to Liberals, you are not allowed to even defend yourself or your family in self-defense. Pacify. Appease. Run Away. Live life as a Coward. This is how Liberals behave and conduct themselves and they expect everyone else to be an obedient, unquestioning Cowardly Serf just like they are. We'd all be speaking German if today's Liberals were in charge of World War II.
Oh, and the poor Wise Latina Woman had to answer some questions on abortion and this has The Left up in arms saying, "that's all those Republicans did was ask her about abortion!"
Allow me to take a moment to remind everyone of the Topic du Jour from the Liberals during the confirmation hearings of John Roberts and Samuel Alito: Abortion. Abortion. Abortion. Abortion. Abortion. Roe v Wade. Abortion. Abortion. Abortion. Roe v Wage. Abortion. And Abortion. It is The Left that is obsessed with abortion. They worship at the Altar of Abortion. Now, Sonia would have said they worship at the Alter of Abortion.
I don't' care about Sotomayor's gender, her heritage or her life story. I don't even care that she's a raving, raging uber-Liberal.
She's not qualified and she lacks the intelligence of being part of the Supreme Court.
The Republicans said they will not filibuster Sotomayor. I can't for the life of me figure out why not.
Sotomayor told the Republicans what they wanted to hear, not what she truly believes. She is a Marxist, she is part of the Blame America First Crowd, she is a faux intellectual, she is a a fraud and an impostor.
She has no place, none, zero...being on the Supreme Court of The United States.
She is just the typical Liberal poser, isn't she? A fake, a phony, a fraud - - - just like The Kenyan.
Things are going okay. Hey, it can always be worse. Sometimes it is the little things that are going well that we have to remember to get us past the rough spots, huh?
