Watched the grilling of Sotomeyor by the Republican Senators for about half an hour today. She was pretty good on answering the questions and basically maintaining the message that a judge is there to interpret the laws and not create them. But the main lesson lesson was that the Senators just love talking and listening to themselves.

The NRA is against Sotomayor even though she is not against nunchucks (yes, the Republicans kept talking about it). Even though I'm a card carrying gun owner and the Second Amendment is dear to me, it is precisely this kind of bizarre behavior by the NRA that I don't get. I can understand them as they know that once you have the government involved, you can never roll it back and things will get worse. But sometimes they just don't make sense.
