Fit for the Bird Cage

I was a little surprised the other day when I received the email below from The Washington Times. I know the WashTimes is a conservative paper, but what was surprising to me was for a major publication to throw any pretense of objectivity out the window by sending out such a hit job. Maybe that is what the newspaper industry is coming to when the cease being news and start being narrow interest propaganda pieces. Sad to see, I like my news to be news and leave the opinions to me.

—Obamaís Supreme Court nominee, Judge Sonia Sotomayor

Dear Friend,

President Obama has nominated someone that will be one of the most radical ever to sit on the United States Supreme Court and he is hoping you will do nothing to stop her confirmation.

As Judge Sotomayorís quote above shows she not only believes that unelected judges should create the laws, she would prefer to hide that belief from you!

Obama and Sotomayor know that a majority of the American people do NOT want judges legislating from the bench. They know that a majority of the American people do NOT want judicial activists to impose their opinion over the facts so they are hiding the truth and trying to rush through her confirmation. But thereís something you can do to stop them.

Will you make an urgent contribution to help the Judicial Confirmation Network and conservative leaders across the nation stop Obamaís liberal judge?

Judge Sotomayor doesnít believe that the Constitution of the United States and the facts should determine her judicial decisions. She says, "personal experiences affect the facts that judges CHOOSE to see." So Judges should choose which facts they weigh in their decision and ignore facts that arenít in line with their personal feelings?

If we donít stop Judge Sotomayor now, her radical, liberal ideas will be shaping the Supreme Court of the United States for decades to come. Please act now by following this link.

By now you have heard many of Sonia Sotomayorís radical ideas for our nationís justice system including her now famous statement on who can make better decisions from the bench. Judge Sotomayor: "I would hope that a wise Latina woman with the richness of her experiences would more often than not reach a better conclusion than a white male who hasnít lived that life?"

Now President Obama and the Democrats in Congress are trying to rush her confirmation. Republican Senator Mitch McConnell called this the "shortest confirmation timeline in recent memory."

What are President Obama and the Democrats trying to hide in Judge Sotomaorís record? With your help, we will continue to find the truth and stop her from a lifetime appointment on the Supreme Court. Because of the Democrats shortened confirmation schedule, time is running out. We need you to act now.

Your urgent contribution of $100, $50, $25 now to the Judicial Confirmation Network will help us and conservative leaders across the nation stop Obamaís liberal judge.

Thank you,
