The following is the oath a justice must pledge before taking a seat on the federal bench:

“I, __________, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will administer justice without respect to persons, and do equal right to the poor and to the rich, and that I will faithfully and impartially discharge and perform all the duties incumbent upon me as (name of position) under the Constitution and laws of the United States. So help me God.”

So, how does this square with Sotomayor’s own statements(see below)?

“[W]e who judge must not deny the differences resulting from experience or heritage but attempt . . . continuously to judge when those opinions, sympathies, and prejudices are appropriate.”

So a prejudiced judge is okey-dokey if they are Spanish?  Or does this extend to all of the ‘oppressed’ classes?  This is lunacy.  Sotomayor has other statements regarding Judicial activism with regard to where federal policy is set — in the appellate courts!  She also believes that latina woman is inherently a better judge than a white male.  This is both sexist and racist.  This is also Obama’s first pick to the Supreme court.  There must be someone better out there.   Is there a liberal judge with gravitas in the house?
