WASHINGTON (CNN) - The U.S. Senate on Thursday confirmed Judge Sonia Sotomayor as the first Hispanic justice on the Supreme Court.
Sotomayor was confirmed in 68-31 vote. Nine Republicans joined a unanimous Democratic caucus in supporting her nomination.
The 55-year-old federal appeals court judge will be the 111th person to sit on the high court, and the third woman justice.
Take that, you right-wing scumbags!!!
Whooo Hooo! Sotomayer is going to make us proud!
It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood.
and BOO to the GOP ideologues who can't see past their flat-earth mentalities.
CONGRATULATIONS Judge Sotomayor!
May the Lord continue to bless you and keep you!
God Bless President Obama, VP Biden, the First Families and "Bo"
I am the white/old/businessman/ex republican who thanks God that someone like this can start with nothing in this country and go to the top. so all those archie bunkers out there-I want there names to be shown to the world at every election. ITS TIME to stop politics and think of our country first. We have these human behavior studies on ethic groups then when one climbs the ladder archie tries to stop them.
WOW, what a shocker! Never knew this would happen! (not)
Finally. Welcome to the court Justice Sotomayor.
The republicans huffed and they puffed, but they couldnt blow this wise latina down. Today is a great day!
Yes We Can!!!
Thank you Dems. for voting united on this. Congrats Barack in helping to make this historical moment!
Congratulation Sotomayor she would do good on the Supreme Court
Great Job President Obama chosen a wonderful lady
Judge Sonia Sotomayor Congrads!!!!
Take it from a wise latina woman when I say ' looking forward to saying Supreme Court Judge Sotomayor!'
With a little luck, those nine Republicans will be cast into retirement the next time they run for reelection, Our party doesn't need those scumbags.
Now it is time to worry. She is so Left Wing, she can't even stand up straight.
History has been made once again. Congratulations Justice Sotomayor.
Congratulations to Judge Sotomayor!
Congrats Justice Sotomayor!!!!
The sky is falling! The sky is falling! Grrr! I'm a republican and I pray for this war-mongering nation.
Obama's Choice confirmed! A hispanic NAIL in Republican coffins!!
Obama – Biden 2012
As a Puerto Rican female this is a wonderful day!
A Great Moment in American History. The GOP Senators who voted against her will have lots of explaining to do IN FRONT of their Hispanic constituents over the summer recess. It will be interesting how many of them avoid Hispanic voters in their states. Senator John Thune of South Dakota will have lots of explaining to the fast growing hispanic community here in SD.
I'm glad that she was confirmed. All the posing and invented labels from the right were grating. Now we can move on to other, important issues.
CNN – I would love to see a break-down of how each senator voted.
Oh no! What will conservatives find to scream about now?
Oops, thats right..I forgot, they complain about everything. Remember , folks: the first rules of conservatism is don't do anything for anyone else and don't think unless it comes off an AM station or Fox.
Apparently NRA is not as powerfull as everybody thought, especially they themselves. At least 8 Republicans voted for her.
Until the day when the NRA is gone, and the 2 Amendmend is amended to not allow any fool on the street to carry a gun, I will have to dream.
