Sotomayor by the minute

Posted By on Mon, Jul 13, 2009 at 3:41 PM

I found USA Today's blog, with bite-sized updates all day on the Sotomayor hearings, fairly useful. It includes an explanation of Mike Huckabee robocalling against Sotomayor in Iowa. He was working in behalf of anti-abortion group, one of the stalwarts of his Iowa caucus base.

Sounds like Sen. Al Franken got off to a serious and measured start as a member of the Judiciary Committe, but with a good jab at the conservative judicial activists now in control of the Supreme Court.
