Imagine for a moment Chief Justice John Roberts, or Justice Antonin Scalia repetitively making the statement that a wise “White Male” with the richness of his experiences would, more often than not, reach a better conclusion than [insert color/gender here].

At least Senator Pat Roberts (R-KS) recognizes what type of judicial philosophy Sotomayor would bring to the Supreme Court. He is the first Republican to clearly confirm his opposition to her nomination:
