Hilzoy checks in on the pitiful state of Sotomayor opponents:

Paul at PowerLine headlines his post "Che Guevara In Robes". I've been trying to think of something Sotomayor and Che have in common besides being Hispanic, but I'm coming up dry. But that's nothing compared to Mike Huckabee thinking her first name is Maria. Any moment now, I suppose someone will ask how we know she's in this country legally.

Of course, none of these responses really compares to John "No law can prevent the President from crushing the testicles of a terrorist's child" Yoo informing us of the real meaning of the Sotomayor nomination: that despite his best efforts, empathy has triumphed -- and that this is a bad thing.
