(By Heather, crooksandliars.com ) One of the lighter moments from the Sonia Sotomayor hearings and just for fun here. Al actually did a very good job during the hearing and seemed to have the talking heads a bit astounded that he could be serious and ask some good questions, as well as funny. As long as Al continues to add this sort of humor along with his wonkiness to the debate on the Senate floor, or during hearings, I'm sure he'll manage to keep the talking heads flummoxed, or at least pretending to be. Anyone who's actually followed his biography should not be surprised by the fact that he probably just raised the collective IQ of the Senate by a few points the minute he was sworn in.
Senator Chuck Schumer in his empathetic way cried at the Sonia Sotomayor hearing over the love that Judge Sotomayor had, and still has for the Nancy Drew book series. Even Glenn Beck cried about it on his show; it seems to be affecting the entire population of America. This empathetic wise Latino woman is fast becoming an American Icon. If this woman is not affirmed as a Supreme Court Justice then it will be a travesty beyond all other travesties; how will we ever live it down? It is as if she is the Latino Gorge Washington of her time; she is the indispensable wise Latino. She must be confirmed at all cost, our countries future depends on it. So do it now! Before it is too late!!! jbranstetter04
