Instead, they'll just experience their normal level of rage, this directed at the idea that a Hispanic woman got the nod, not one of the neanderthals they prefer.
From AP via Yahoo! News -
President Barack Obama named federal appeals judge Sonia Sotomayor as the nation's first Hispanic Supreme Court justice on Tuesday, praising her as "an inspiring woman" with both the intellect and compassion to interpret the Constitution wisely.
Obama said Sotomayor has more experience as a judge than any current member of the high court had when nominated, adding she has earned the "respect of colleagues on the bench," the admiration of lawyers who appear in her court and "the adoration of her clerks."
"My heart today is bursting with gratitude," Sotomayor said from the White House podium moments after being introduced by Obama.
The White House has a summary of her background here.
Basics of that summary - Grew up in poverty in the South Bronx, attended Catholic high school, earned an undergraduate degree from Princeton and a law degree from Yale, worked as an assistant Manhattan DA and an intellectual property/corporate lawyer, and was nominated as a judge on the US District Court by President George H.W. Bush. She was later appointed to the Appeals Court by President Bill Clinton.
