Right-wing commentator (and Warren native) Hugh Hewitt has some advice for fellow travellers who think they can or should detail the nomination of Judge Sotomayor for the Supreme Court:
Cryptic references to her temperament by retired clerks eager to be "in the mix" are the worst sort of gossip-dressed-up-as-journalism, and simply lower expectations which she will easily meet and exceed. The judge is obviously a bright and accomplished professional with an enormously appealing personal story which resembles that of Justices Thomas and Alito. This is a great country that allows anyone who works hard to rise, and some to rise spectacularly as has Judge Sotomayor.
Read the rest here. Hewitt is hardcore — last fall he was peddling a book to be called How Sarah Palin Won the Election ... and Saved America. So it's intriguing to hear him sounding like the voice of reason. We'll see how long it lasts. — Frank Lewis
