Today's Deep Thought

It occurs to me that the Republican questioners at the Sotomayor confirmation hearings confuse 'empathy' with 'sympathy.' It also occurs to me that focusing on whether she has empathy or not is a way to introduce some sexist stereotypes through the back door, so to speak. Women, bless the little dears, are too emotional to be judges!

Of course justice itself is personified as a woman. But that's neither here nor there as surely she wold think just like Lindsey Graham who is unable to be anything but neutral.
