"Scalialicious!"

"Frankfurter was born too soon for the Web, but I'm sure that, had it been possible, there would have been the equivalent of Ninomania for Frankfurter."
-- Mark Tushnet
(I agree, and commented here.)

    :: Tuesday, May 26, 2009 ::
    Bill Donohue of the Catholic League for Civil and Religious Rights makes a point: assuming that Judge Sotomayor, as a New York Puerto Rican, has a background (at least) as a Catholic, then her confirmation would give use a 2/3 RC Court! There was a certain amount of caterwauling about this factor when it was Roberts and Alito, but nothing so far this time, while the Court's supposed "Catholic majority" grows.

    To Donohue, no surprise: if Judge S. is a Catholic, then she's the "right kind" of Catholic, meaning, the left kind of Catholic.

    Shifting gears, Donohue then makes another point:
    On a personal note, I must say that having spent four years in the 1970s teaching in a Catholic elementary school in Spanish Harlem, I loved working with the Puerto Rican people. Indeed, I feel some of the pride that Puerto Ricans rightly feel today. Good for them—this is their special day.
    Without endorsing ethnicity as a way of picking a Justice, I can get down with that. I'd rather it were Emilio Garza or Miguel Estrada, but hey you know, it's good to be in America.
