68 to 31: Sotomayor is Confirmed

Soon to be Associate Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor was just confirmed in the Senate. The vote was a mixture of 57 Democrats, 2 Independents and 9 Republicans up against 31 Republicans.

Texas’ two senators, John Cornyn and Kay Bailey Hutchison voted “No.”

As Ricky Ricardo usually said to his on-screen wife, Lucy, they have a lot of ‘splainin’ to do to their Hispanic constituents.

And Kay has some more explaining to do to 51% of all Texans who profess to be female.
