And sure, maybe her senate hearings were "grotesque kabuki." But I had a lot of fun imagining what she would have said if she didn't have to do all this bowing and scraping and uber-cautious self-censoring, pledging herself oh-so-carefully to the Robot Umpire Army. Sonia Sotomayor, unleashed! Ready to counter racism and sexism whenever it appears, with her rapier wit and sharp tongue! (OK, maybe -I- wish I could've shouted these things, and she wasn't angered by the inanity AT ALL. But I still enjoyed the exercise.)
IT'S LIKE SENATORIAL-JUDICIAL CRACKFIC! Choose your own rebuttal!
What do you most wish Sotomayor COULD have said during her senate hearings?
Or maybe you have some ideas of your own? Please share!
