She has had type 1 diabetes ever since she was 8. Nothing to do with her weight.

I just like typing and saying "diabeetus". Especially with a graphic of the Bremster to go along with it.

You beat me to it ... that is correct, of course.

Sotomayor may end up being further to the right than Souter, at least on some issues.

Murky views on abortion

She has made only tangential rulings on abortion — decisions that, if anything, sided with the anti-abortion position, but cast in terms of following precedent. In one case, she upheld the Bush administration's ban on aid to international organizations that either promote or provide abortions.

"The Supreme Court has made clear that the government is free to favor an anti-abortion position over the pro-choice position," she wrote.

And in a case involving China's forced abortion policy, she severely criticized her colleagues on the court who said that only women, and not their husbands, were eligible for asylum.

"The termination of a wanted pregnancy under a coercive population control program can only be devastating to any couple, akin, no doubt, to the killing of a child," she wrote.

Wouldn't it be ironic if she became known as an opponent of abortion?

What's going to be funny is if she becomes the Harriet Myers of Obama's...
