Jon Stewart took some time on The Daily Show yesterday to examine the statements made by U.S. Senators with regards to Judge Sonia Sotomayor's impending confirmation to the Supreme Court. He noted that it seemed impossible for anyone, Republican or Democrat, to get away from identity politics and acknowledge the fact that—while Sotomayor happens to Latina—she is also imminently qualified for the position she now holds.
Our favorite part? When John McCain declares that, "An excellent resume and an inspiring life story are not enough to qualify one for a lifetime of service on the Supreme Court," only for Jon to (accurately) point out, "What?! 'An excellent resume and an inspiring life story' was your entire presidential campaign platform!" Not to mention the fact that McCain is guilty of nominating one of the most unqualified and ignorant vice presidential candidates this country has ever seen!
