Quick Hit: Sonia Sotomayor nominated for Supreme Court

26 05 2009

This morning President Obama announced his nomination of Sonia Sotomayor to replace Justice Souter on the Supreme Court.  She will be the first Latina woman, the first woman of color (and the third woman) to be a Supreme Court Justice.  Unsurprisingly, there has already been a lot of conservative backlash.


A lot has been written about this already:

From Feministe: Sonia Sotomayor nominated for the Supreme Court

From Racialicious: Open Thread: On Sonia Sotomayor

From Think Progress: Conservatives Blast Obama’s Hispanic SCOTUS Nominee As “Not the Smartest” And An “Intellectual Lightweight”

From Reclusive Leftist: Sotomayor announcement marred by the usual crap
