If Justice Sonia Sotomayor’s confirmation to the bench was a trip across the Atlantic in a canoe, confirming whoever will succeed Justice Stevens is going to be like the voyage across the Drake Passage to Antarctica.
Bear in mind that Justice Sotomayor is a woman with decades of experience as a judge, and has never shown herself to be a radical in any of her rulings. And yet Republicans in the Senate and their conservative allies on the outside hurled every epithet they could imagine at her politics.
That all came prior to the nine months of political poison we endured in the course of the never-ending health care reform debate. And even before that all went down, before the town halls and the bricks through windows, before ‘You lie!’ and ‘It’s a baby killer!’ Senator Jeff Sessions, the Alabama Republican who is the Senate Judiciary Committee’s Ranking Minority Member, declared in a speech after Sotomayor’s next session that he would fight with even more teeth and nails against whoever President Obama picks next.
