After a well-deserved week off, Jon Stewart returns to discover that
President Obama has “tapped Federal Appeals Court Judge Sonia Sotomayor”
…as his highly
qualified
first nominee for the Supreme Court. Oh.

Stewart goes on to review the cable news treatment of her nomination:
“Well, that’s television coverage–it’s inherently superficial,” he
notes before pulling out the Time magazine headlined “Latina
Justice.”
Is anyone capable of having a serious discussion about her
judicial
qualifications? Perhaps The Daily Show‘s Aasif Mandvi? Perhaps not.
