"Scalialicious!"
-- Eve Tushnet


"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.)

    Sotomay-even-more

    David Lat tweats that Judge Sotomayor should "thank" Jeff Rosen. Could he be referring to this column, for which my own hat-tip must go to Jordan Sekulow? Rosen's May 4 anti-Sotomayor piece concludes (nearly):
    Not all the former clerks for other judges I talked to were skeptical about Sotomayor. "I know the word on the street is that she's not the brainiest of people, but I didn't have that experience," said one former clerk for another judge. "She's an incredibly impressive person, she's not shy or apologetic about who she is, and that's great." This supporter praised Sotomayor for not being a wilting violet. "She commands attention, she's clearly in charge, she speaks her mind, she's funny, she's voluble, and she has ownership over the role in a very positive way," she said. "She's a fine Second Circuit judge--maybe not the smartest ever, but how often are Supreme Court nominees the smartest ever?"
    Sotomay-oh-may.

    I think the drift of the argument here -- I mean, the left's anti-Sotomoyor argument: we'll see in the next few days whether the meme develops, or whether they keep it quiet -- is that given the chance to appoint a true antidote to Scalia, and with the Best. Senate. Ever., Obama has kind-a sort-a blown it.

    Can anyone say Soutermayor?
