…it is imperative that my colleagues and members of the media do not pre-judge or pre-confirm Ms. Sotomayor.

Like, say, Cornyn himself did with Samuel Alito.

The President has chosen a well qualified nominee for our nation’s highest court. It is clear that Judge Alito is a man of outstanding character, who is deeply committed to public service, and has a distinguished history of professional achievement and leadership.

And while RedState and The Corner call her stupid, which I’m sure will do wonders for the GOP’s Latino outreach program, Roger Pilon busts out the "r" word

Cato Institute scholar Roger Pilon slammed Sotomayor as "the most radical of all the frequently mentioned candidates before" Obama.

As does Americans United Against Choice.

She is a radical pick that divides America. 

Yes, she’s so radical that George H.W. Bush appointed her to the bench and fellow radicals Orrin Hatch and Richard Lugar voted to confirm her.

But naturally, Huck takes first prize.

The appointment of Maria Sotomayor for the Supreme Court is the clearest indication yet that President Obama’s campaign promises to be a centrist and think in a bipartisan way were mere rhetoric.

In Huck’s defense, he probably just assumed that all Puerto Rican chicks are named "Maria."
