On August 6, 2009, 59 Democrats voted to confirm Sotomayor while 31 Republicans voted against her.....yawn. Was I saying something...oh yes I got distracted.
The real story for conservatives are the 9 turncoats who jumped ship
The nine Senate Republicans who voted to confirm her were:
Sen. George Voinovich of Ohio (loser, crybaby, no surpise)
Sen. Judd Gregg of New Hampshire (what a disappoinment)
Sen. Kit Bond of Missouri (what a disappoinment)
Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina (No surprise coming from Grahamnesty)
Sen. Susan Collins of Maine (RINO)
Sen. Olympia Snowe of Maine (RINO)
Sen. Mel Martinez of Florida (loser, just announced his retirement, don't let the door hit you on the way out)
Sen. Richard Lugar of Indiana (what a disappoinment)
Sen. Lamar Alexander of Tennessee (you should have retired long ago)
They are now known as the Sotomayor 9
Put these guys in the same box as the traitors in the House who voted for the Cap & Trade scam back in June.
Call these lowlife turncoats and tell them they are now on our collective radar screens and they will pay with their jobs in 2010 and 2012. We won't forget these losers. We will primary them whenever possible. Let's make this outrage the beginning of the end of the Dem majority in the House and the Senate.
Here is a list of the Cap & Trade 8

Fake philosohper and self-hating, bi-sexual, liberal, feminist, nihilist, white consummate bore Susan Sontag once said that the white race is the "the cancer of human history." We'll leave that for later in the article.
Meanwhile Sonia Sotomayor successfully fended off attack after attack by the evil white half blood princes of the Senate.
The Kabuki theater that was our Sonia's Senate confirmation hearing is mercifully over. Amazingly, after years of racist "wise latina" comments and
four decisions that were overturned by the Supreme Court including the Ricci case (where she screwed 18 white firemen and one Hispanic fireman out of deserved promotions) she had a slew of "confirmation conversions" and magically turned into
Chief Justice Roberts.
In other words, Sonia did the rope-a-dope stratgey and lied her way through the hearings. She's just so damn reasonable and mainstream.
But Sonia couldn't answer some basic questions:
Sonia on self-defense
Sonia on being a wise Latina woman
In the end she had a couple of Republican Senators fooled...or maybe they were concerned about their re-elections and decided to pander to the Hispanic vote.
The Left was always too eager to criticize George Bush for not being able to speak. We at Neville wonder if anyone will report the gaggle of malaprops dropped by our wise Latina Sonia:
Sonia said "eminent" when she meant "imminent,"
Sonia said "providence" instead of "province"
Sonia said "story of knowledge" instead of "store of knowledge"
But, like Obama, she's brilliant. Everyone says so. Actually, she can barely speak.
Sonia will get confirmed. The bar has been substantially lowered because the liberals got out their coloring book and said we have to have a Hispanic and a woman on the court. Political correctness and cosmetic diversity always trump intelligence.
And that takes us back to Susan Sontag and the real purpose of this article. This nomination was about payback.

The Left and, most importantly, the New Left has been at war with the evil white man since the 1960's.
With the ascendancy of our affirmative action Fraudinator-in-Chief it's finally time "get some". It's time to get whitey.
Even the guilt-ridden white liberals have gotten in on the act. Self-hating liberal white women and columnist Maureen Dowd wrote a piece in the NY Times entitled White Man's Last Stand excerpted here:
President Obama wants Sotomayor, naturally, to bring a fresh perspective to the court. It was a disgrace that W. appointed two white men to a court stocked with white men.
A wise Latina woman with the richness of her experiences would more often than not know that a gaggle of white Republican men afraid of extinction are out to trip her up.
After all, these guys have never needed to speak inspirational words to others like them, as Sotomayor has done. They've had codes, handshakes and clubs to do that.
Sarah Palin is the definition of irrational, a volatile and scattered country-music queen without the music. Her Republican fans defend her lack of application and intellect, happy to settle for her emotional electricity.
Now that's clever prose Maureen. We can almost hear the voice of that other phony intellectual jerk Dorothy Parker being channeled through you. Of course Democrats NEVER try to trip up conservative nominees like Judge Bork, Thomas and Alito. They always play fair...by smearing them first. Oh and, Maureen, did you happen to notice the black guy and the women already on the court stocked with white guys? What's it like to be smarter than the rest of us, Maureen?
Sen. Chuck Schumer, in an amazing attempt to show how empathetic he is to the cause of minorities, cried like the metrosexual he is when addressing Sonia.
It is amazing to watch upper-crust West Side, Manhatten/Hampton liberal whites, heavy-laden with guilt over the past, so eager to commit cultural and political suicide. And drag the rest of us down with them.
If Obama wanted to truly be an original, instead of the plodding, predictable, pathetic Marxist that he is, he would have nominated a white guy.
Looks like the "post-racial" Obama era is anything but that...
Ironically, the Friedrich Nietzsche-loving Sontag died of cancer (leukemia) in 2004.
