    Did anyone else watch Sotomayor dance around Sen. Hatch's questions on the 2nd Amendment?

    Man, did she ever just refuse to give an answer?

    I believe that the question is: Would she give her life to protect our rights or would she give her life to give up our rights?

    I would believe it is the latter...
    Rights are like muscles. You must EXERCISE THEM to keep them from becoming atrophied.

    You really think any liberal activist has the guts to give their own life for anything?

    I wonder if its dawned on anybody that the only people overturned more than her are the clowns in the 9th circut. Maybe, just maybe she's really not that good of a judge. Especially since she seems to have missed the most landmark gun rulling of like the last 70 yrs. Just a thought.

    My reckoning is that she is not that good. She does seem to have not assimilated Heller v. D.C. in deciding Maloney v. Cuomo.

    She'll get 80 votes in the Senate.

    I really hope your wrong on the 80 votes in the senate. I'm really hoping that it goes down party lines with a few Dems crossing over. Or better yet that it never gets out of committie like they did to a couple of Bush's. A guy can dream can't he.

    Glad to see that even though it won't make a difference that there is at least an official record of the NRA objecting to her being confirmed.

    The NRA is a weak-livered sellout group of political cronies who make a sham of having political power to represent gun owners.

    If NRA is so durn 'politically powerful' why can't it get Sotomayor bounced out on her ear?

    Hmmm?

    Because it is w-e-a-k. That's why.

    The GOA would've gotten Sotomayor defeated. Didn't get the chance, is all...

    Because they only have 1/75th or less of the population as members.

    How did the GOA miss the chance? Didn't they know that Sotomayor was getting appointed?
