Calling BS on BO: Sotomayor as the "First Hispanic"  

Tuesday, July 28, 2009

Much has been made by the Obama Administration about Sonia Sotomayor being the first Hispanic Supreme Court justice (assuming her confirmation).

Just to correct the record, she may be the first Hispanic WOMAN on the Supreme Court, but she definitely WILL NOT be the first Hispanic.

I introduce to you the first Hispanic American to serve on the US Supreme Court, Justice Benjamin Nathan Cardozo, who served on the US Supreme Court from 1932-1938.

Supreme Court Justice Benjamin N. Cardozo

No word on why BO and his gang overlooked this important individual. Might have something to do with his also being a JOOOOOOOOO, but I won't level that accusation just yet. It's probably just the typical liberal omission of convenience.
