Sen. Bob Corker blew off his meeting with Sonia Sotomayor last week. Hobbling along with her leg in a cast, she was 10 minutes late and he said he didn't feel like waiting. "I decided to proceed on to the next meeting," he told a Tennessee Press Association breakfast in Chattanooga. Oh well, it's only the Supreme Court.
Wasn't Corker the least bit interested in asking the judge about all the criticism coming her way from conservatives like Sean Hannity? According to them, she's a wild-eyed judicial activist bent on twisting the law to fit her personal liberal agenda. She's anti-gun and pro-abortion!
We're wondering whether Corker still intends to vote on Sotomayor's nomination? Who knows? That might inconvenience the senator, too.Update: Corker's flack says the senator has rescheduled his meeting with Sotomayor for tomorrow.
