If you enjoy a deadpan account of the Democratic senators’ slobbering over the Supreme Court nominee, you can’t do better than Tom Goldstein at SCOTUSblog. On Diane Feinstein: “she really, really, really, really likes Sonia Sotomayor. It’s only the rules of the stuff[y] Senate that keep her from coming down and giving her a big, big hug.” On the senior senator from New York: “Sen. Schumer says that pride in the nomination should be taken by not just women, not just Puerto Rican, and not just Hispanics. (But they would be just fine, of course.)” And so it goes.
Sotomayor’s opening statement will be coming up so stay tuned.
