Sotomayor's been doing nothing but dropping the ball on everyone since she's been on the Court! Now she's dropping a gigantic one on everybody and ruining everyone's holidays!

Can they impeach judges? Boy, if they could, this one would be the candidate. That woman is truly a bad judge.

Really good question. I honestly have no idea who would have been stupid enough to vote her onto the Supreme Court.

No one I know, anyway.

When a Supreme Court Justice gets 'celebrity status' by being picked to be on center stage during a holiday festival, one can't help but wonder if they will be thinking about "keeping their popularity" OR being "strictly CONSTITUTIONAL" when making their next Supreme Court ruling.

In my humble opinion, it just doesn't seem like a good idea to turn a member of the HIGHEST COURT IN THE LAND, into some kind of 'movie star' type.

Seems today that the 'movie star' people think they can hold some sway on politics and now a political appointee of the Supreme Court can have 'movie star' status.

BLURRED LINES ......

You seem to need to educate yourself before you try to make statements like these. More specific the removal and appointing aspects of the supreme court justices; the highest court in your country. But you seem to skip all that in your civics class. Are you mexican?

TOPIX is a private company free to moderate their boards at their choosing.

Sotomayor has dropped the ball more than once on important issues.
She's nothing more than a lying communist Obama sock puppet.

Since the greasy canukian dropped the ball on repealling Obamacare, he rightfully should've dropped the Times Square ball to ring in the ACA. LMAO.

Justice Sotomayor was the first S C appointee of President Obama's chosen to get noticed by the Hispanic community. Then he promised them amnesty, and couldn't deliver. Now the Hispanics are going Republican.

Why would they align themselves with the self-deportation teahadist? You're delusional. And so early on in the year. LMAO.

Because the current President has lied to them over, and over about getting them Amnesty. His lying doesn't seem to bother Democrats, but the illegal aliens believed him, and took him at his word. Now they have been disappointed so many times they have decided to try their hand at getting Republican support.
