Sotomayor Stuff

No great breaking news but a couple of things worth noting instead of breaking into a bunch of headline posts....

The Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee exercised their right to hold over the vote for a week until next Tuesday, the 28th. That will mean a vote by the full Senate sometime in early August.

Susan Collins, who laughingly still identifies herself as a Republican, joins Richard Lugar, Mel Martinez and her fellow Mainer Olympia Snowe on the pro-Sotomayor bandwagon.

And finally but most enjoyably, Arlen Specter is getting beat up by Rep Joe Sestak, his opponent in Pennsylvania's Democratic primary, for being too mean to Sotomayor during the hearings.

His campaign issued a release Monday bashing Specter for the way he handled himself during the confirmation hearings of judge Sonia Sotomayor for the Supreme Court.

"Arlen Specter has announced he will vote for Judge Sonia Sotomayor's nomination -- but only after giving the first Latina nominee to the Supreme Court a worse grilling than his Republican colleagues," reads the release.

God, I'm so glad he's their problem now.
