Earlier this month we were totally unimpressed by Jeffrey Rosen’s hatchet job of Second Circuit Judge Sonia Sotomayor. Brief summary: “Anonymous sources tell me that prominent female minority member may not deserve her success. Oh, and she’s probably bitchy and uppity, too.”
When pretty much all of the blogosphere excoriated Rosen for his sloppy / biased reporting (our favorite response here), Rosen defended himself by saying, essentially, “What’s the problem? My unidentified sources really do think she’s dumb. Cross my heart.”
This morning President Obama nominated Judge Sotomayor to fill departing Justice Souter’s spot on the U.S. Supreme Court. Here’s the video of the announcement. And Jeffrey Rosen can suck it.
