Sotomayor Not Fit For Jury Duty

Andy McCarthy explains why Obama's Supreme Court nominee is not fit to serve on a jury, let alone the highest court in the USA.

In every trial — every single trial — judges solemnly instruct American citizens who are compelled to perform jury duty that they will have a sworn obligation to decide cases objectively — without fear or favor. If a person is unwilling or unable to do that, if the person believes he or she has a bias or prejudice, especially one based on a belief that people are inferior or superior due to such factors as race, ethnicity, or sex, the person is not qualified to be a juror.

I recommend reading the rest.

Now, what are the odds of a Republican bringing this up with the media, let alone during the confirmation hearings?
