With the curtain about to fall on Crappy Hour, it's up to you to set the agenda today! Ask questions or make comments on the days news, and I'll answer. Clinton in Africa? Birthers? Health Care? It's all here!
Sonia Sotomayor, dickish Senators and questions about whether judges can be wise and/or Latina (keep in mind: Republicans confirmed Clarence Thomas) without disenfranchising whiny white men remain, so we're back in the comments, when we can bear it.

While we wish that Sonia Sotomayor could stop the inanity, the truth is that only 5 of the Judiciary Committee's 19 members have questioned her. The

Are you watching Judge Sonia Sotomayor's confirmation hearings? I am! And I'm liveblogging it in the comments after the jump. (At left, Sotomayor introduces her family.)
