Bob Tyrrell writes on the flawed mindset of Barack Obama and Sonia Sotomayor:
What kind of a society have we arrived at through Judge Sotomayor's reasoning? It is a society in which some groups are superior to others, namely, wise Latinas are superior to the rest of us. That is not what I call progress over intolerance, bigotry, or, for that matter, stupidity.
Nonetheless, this is the mindset of Liberals who hold sway at the nation's law schools. Professor Barack Obama had the same point of view when he taught at the University of Chicago Law School. . . .
The problem with their position is that it assumes we are all prisoners of our experience, except for Sotomayor and Obama who have somehow transcended their experience.
The rest of us cannot think objectively.
In fact, we cannot read the law or the Constitution unimpeded by our backgrounds.
Yet Sotomayor and Obama are here to guide and to govern.
At some point, perhaps, we will get over this middle class idea of holding elections. Or maybe Sotomayor and Obama will simply suspend them. They seem to know what is best.
