Attorney General Dustin McDaniel Twitters that he'll be testifying in support of Judge Sonia Sotomayor's nomination to the U.S. Supreme Court. Good for him.
Funny thing. Sotomayor is, in the bigger picture, a conventional moderate. Too moderate for my liking and that of many who'd like to see Obama appoint heavyweight countervailing voices to the extreme rightists -- Roberts, Alito, Thomas -- added in Bush years. But the demonization of her by the right makes supporting her seem an act of liberalism. I just hope she doesn't turn out to be Obama's Souter.
