Most qualified Supreme Court nominee evah a bit of a dolt?

Via a Tweet from Allahpundit, via NRO:

Justice Malaprop?   [Ed Whelan]

Judge Sotomayor says “eminent” when she means “imminent,” “providence” instead of “province,” “story of knowledge” instead of “store of knowledge,” and so on.  Does the fact that she is a Latina immunize her from attention to that sort of (admittedly not uncommon) foible?

I say it’s filibuster time if she utters the faux word “irregardless” at tomorrow’s hearing.

BREAKING: Supreme Court Overturns Sotomayor – again

Headline:

WASHINGTON – The Supreme Court has ruled that white firefighters in New Haven, Conn., were unfairly denied promotions because of their race, reversing a decision that high court nominee Sonia Sotomayor endorsed as an appeals court judge.

The wise Latina got it wrong.  Again.

Justice for Ricci and a blow to racial preferences.

Updates to come.

Update #1: Both the AP and NYT headlines read that the Supreme Court ruled in favor of white firefighters.  WRONG.  A Hispanic was also discriminated against when his test was tossed.  Also of note is the glaring omission of Sotomayor’s name in their headlines.

Update #2:  copy of decision in pdf
