Sotomayor Sotto Voce

A roundup of links on the Sotomayor nomination:
No Patty-cake please says Quin Hillyer. Good advice.
Antler: Running on Empathy
"Terror on the bench"
Redstate: A line in the sand
Sotomayor would let felons vote

Wendy Long sums the nub of the issue - judicial activist Obama nominated a judicial activist clone in Sotomayor:

But what needs deeper examination, because it is very troubling, is her overarching judicial philosophy – one that, judging from her public remarks and law review articles, she has thought about seriously and embraced only after much reflection. It’s the judicial philosophy shared by President Obama – a philosophy with which most Americans, who support judicial restraint, vehemently disagree.
Buchanan calls her "lightweight" and says: Abjure the vicious tactics Democrats used on Robert Bork, Clarence Thomas and Sam Alito. Lay out the lady's record. And let America get a close look at the kind of justice Barack Obama believes in.

Cornyn gets chumped by DCCC, and loses the freepers. As Quin Hillyer puts it: "man up" Republicans. If you get flak, it means you are over the target.
