Too Many Contradictions

JOIN TPM FOR JUST $1

I’m sure her conservative critics will come around to this realization eventually. But maybe the reason we can’t trust Sonia Sotomayor is that just that there are too many unresolved contradictions about her? I mean, on the one hand she’s a judicial activist, but also has a record of narrowly argued rulings with close attention to precedent. She’s a affirmative action hire of questionable intelligence who we also hear graduated with honors from various of the country’s most elite schools. At a certain point you have to step back and say, it doesn’t add up. What’s she trying to hide? How can we trust her?
