  •  She's a moderate on the most far-right court (0+ / 0-)

    in 80 years.

    That's not some great accomplishment, nor are the incidences in which she's sided with the liberal wing great achievements.  

    When she rules against the interests of the man who appointed her even once, let me know.

    So far, she's proven to be nothing but a Democratic version of Thomas, shaping her "opinions" to whatever the White House finds agreeable (when she's not recusing herself on sketchy grounds).

    Sotomayor, on the other hand, has shaped up to be a hell of a Justice.  She's courageous, insightful, and eminently fair.  He reasoning has so far always been self-consistent and she has never displayed any tendency to put personal loyalty above what is right.

    It is in no way "unrealistic" to expect that caliber of Justice.  Her record proves it.

    income gains to the top 1% from 2009 to 2011 were 121% of all income increases. How did that happen? Incomes to the bottom 99% fell by 0.4%
