I Kind of Agree with Dahlia Lithwick (for once)
Dahlia Lithwick, in her own vaguely insulting, stab-in-the-back sort of way, tells liberals that they should stop calling Clarence Thomas stupid, since he's not. She also says that therefore, since he's not stupid, Sotomayor isn't either. I'm not sure that follows (though I'm also not doubting Sotomayor's intelligence). The statement is simply illogical, though from a woman who usually disheartens me both in her mean, ad hominem commentary about conservatives and her constant Obama-slobbering, it's a breath of fresh air.
