The only real senator to question Supreme Court Candidate Sonia Sotomayor has been Senator Jeff Sessions of Alabama. The rest have basically stroked her as if she is a little baby. They have fed answers to her when she is lost and in general praised her too overwhelmingly that anyone in their right mind should question what their agenda is when they outright refuse to do their job of questioning.
There are few people in history that are praised outright by all people. Sotomayor is not cut from the cloth of those few. The fact that she is being accepted as such means that there is another motive driving this open ass kissing.
So here below is a Senator doing his proper job that the others are refusing to do. In four parts.
Senator Sessions' Questioning Of Sotomayor Part One
Part 2, 3 and 4 are below.
Senator Sessions' Questioning Of Sotomayor Part Two
Senator Sessions' Questioning Of Sotomayor Part Three
Senator Sessions' Questioning Of Sotomayor Part Four

Then the most remarkable occurrence, Jorienne asked to if he could go to Senator Session’s office because he had a question he needed to ask the Senator. So we trudged off to the very Senator who mere hours before had begrudged our existence as he invalidated Shirley and her family, with his blatant and flagrant failure to greet them. His ommission served as a metaphore to deny all de facto recognition of an entire LGBT community. Sessions snubbed this perfect family from Pacifica. The Tan-Mercado presence and predicament, according to Sessions, was simply not worth a greeting.
I agreed to accompany the children to Session’s office. When we all walked in the staffers could have fallen flat on their backs with surprise. We were the last people on earth they would have expected to show up. I announced that we were there because the twins wanted to ask the Senator a questions. He was not in the office and so his Chief Counsel attended to us instead. He was most hospitable and I could detect a sense of embarrasement (maybe wishful thinking.) In the conference room Jorienne blurted his question: “ If Senator Sessions is against UAFA , please ask him what we can do to save my mom to keep her at home with us? Wow, the room fell silent and I was stunned by the paradox; the simplicity attributed to a complex problem. It took a twelve year old to hit the spot – the Senator had ignored his family and he was demanding recognition. As it turned out it was actually a productive discussion with the Staffer and we gained much by the experience. Did anyone ever say kids were our best teachers? In updating this article we have waited for 8 weeks with no response from the Senator. We will write the question and send it to the Senator c/o Bradley.
Senator Jeff Sessions is a hateful bigot – his behavior today was nothing short of disgusting. I never heard it myself but I was told by staffers at the hearing that Sessions remarked that Jashley’s uncontrollable upset at his Mom’s trauma was nothing about histrionics”. This man has no heart and is an embarrassment to this Country and the Senate, not to mention Alabama. Now that I have been privy to the video below I am blown away by the irony of his standing on the Senate Judiciary committee – that this piece of garbage has any power over my being at all. Wait to end to hear what Sen Edward Kennedy had to say about him.

I agree. Sessions and all of the other Repubs are hateful bigots and garbage. The author of this article is also. Who does he believe gave idiot Bush all the answers to EVERYTHING. None of these people, if I may refer to them as such, should have power over any but their own kind. Much fear among Repubs and rightfully so. The world is changing and those who hold power and oppress are now afraid of losing it forever and the consequences it bears. Sotomayor is a brillant woman and will definetly hold her own.

Oh yes, because Ted Kennedy would never slander someone in the other party... nosiree.
Sessions and all of the other Repubs are hateful bigots and garbage. The author of this article is also.
All of Sessions arguments were well thought out. As for your "argument" of just throwing the "racist" word around, well it doesn't work anymore. You, and people like you, haven't realized yet that nobody buys your crap anymore. The numbers opposed to illegal immigration are actually going up. You never make valid arguments and when others do all you have is a name to call them. Nobody is buying it anymore.
You sound like a bunch of fools.

WTF? The first two commentators make no sense at all. Sotomayor was a leader in the Puerto Rican Defense, an ally of LaRaza, and front group of the Spanish speaking invasion.
