I'm finding the Republican obsession with Sotomayor's identity and the "bias" that follows from it both amusing and annoying. As if anyone approaches the world from an unsituated, un-embedded in culture and gender and race position. As if there is a such thing as a Purely Objective Perspective.
Oh wait. They think there is.
They think you can rise above it all and get the completely objective view of Things-As-They-Actually-Really-Truly-Are-Independent-From-The-Human-Perspective. It's called the White Male Perspective. aka the God's-Eye View. Not biased at all.
