I had a morning appointment, and I only have one action alert in my inbox (and it is a solid test of our devotion to the Constitution, I promise you), so I have little to say today.
Except this: I congratulate Sonya Sotomayor in becoming the first Hispanic-American ever nominated to the Supreme Court. I haven't yet read her opinions in very much detail, so I may still find her insufficiently liberal, but I do know that the "objections" I've heard so far are rubbish. Especially Greg Mankiw's (the second link). By Ford, she only had $30,000 in the bank at some points during the last four years! Yeah, that's going to resonate with a lot of people -- if I had $30,000 in the bank, I'd be halfway to Catholic sainthood. Plus, he thinks he's so much smarter than you -- his summary of his paper "The Savers/Spenders Theory of Fiscal Policy" makes me think a better title would have been "The Articulation of the Obvious Using Big Words as Weapons Against the Reader." I really hate that in a person.
