Stupidest Thing Anyone Will Ever Say About Judge Sotomayor

Or, all you ever need to know about politicians in one quote:

But in the gushing department, Schumer was no match for Reid, who gave a lunchtime news conference of his own where he announced that Sotomayor “is going to be a fantastic, superb Supreme Court justice.”

Is there anything in her record that could cause trouble? “I understand that during her career, she’s written hundreds and hundreds of opinions,” Reid said. “I haven’t read a single one of them, and if I’m fortunate before we end this, I won’t have to read one of them.”

With Jeff “I thought the Klan was alright until I found out they smoked pot” Sessions on the judiciary committee, I thought he would surely be the best entertainment during this nomination. But I don’t think even he’ll top that bit of stupidity from Harry Reid. He’s confident she’ll be “fantastic” and “superb” yet he has never read a single case she’s written? Nor does he plan to do so? Absent even a scintilla of familiarity with her actual, you know work, how in the heck can he possibly know how well or poorly she’ll perform as a Supreme Court justice? Unless, of course, Reid’s confidence is based on some other traits of Judge Sotomayor, like her race or gender or political beliefs.

I would say this is unbelievable, but I’m sure nearly every vote by every congressman is based on similar ignorance. The issue doesn’t really matter. Votes are determined by everything BUT logic and facts.

    Just proves that neither party has cornered the market on dumbasses, they can be found in abundance in either.
