Sotomayor Questionaire Released

Sonia Sotomayor has completed her questionaire. The Senate Judiciay Committee has put the questionaire online. Hotline On Call note Sotomayor completed her questionaire faster than any recent Supreme Court nominee.

Conservative pundits have accused Sotomayor of being not qualified and an affirmative action candidate. Sotomayor's list of awards should put that criticism to rest.
