Sonia Sotomayor, an Associate Justice of the US Supreme Court, evidently has a problem wit basic reading comprehension and constitutional theory. She said recently that:
"If it's within the police power to protect the health and welfare of workers," she said, "you seem to be saying the states can do it, but you're saying the federal government can't, even though it's facing the same crisis in interstate commerce that states are facing within their own borders. I'm not sure I understand the distinction—why the states would have the power but the federal government wouldn't."
It's right there in the document, Sonia. You know, the one that you are sworn to uphold.? The one under glass at the National Archives? The Constitution?
It is laughable that Sonia doesn't understand the limits placed on the federal government by the Constitution. But, that's what we are faced with. I won't call her evil, because one should not ascribe to evil that which can be explained by simple stupidity, but we're faced with one or the other.
