The Senate voted 68 to 31 confirming Sonia Sotomayor as the
111th person appointed to the Supreme Court today.
She will be the first Latino and third woman ever to sit in our nation's highest court.
Give this sister a high 5 y'all!
Most of us know that it was a rocky road for Judge Sotamayor and I'm not just talking about the story they love to tell on the news about her "struggle as she rose from ghetto of a Bronx, NY project to the Supreme Court" (in my best Celie from the Color Purple voice). I'm talking about hoe badly the media talked about her. She deserves her win and I send out a HUGE congratulations to her again!
As Barack did a while back, brush that dirt off your shoulder!
P.S. Nine Republicans crossed party line to support her confirmation.
