From the new York times:

Senate Confirms Judge Sonia Sotomayor as Supreme Court Justice

Voting largely along party lines, the Senate on Thursday
confirmed Judge Sonia Sotomayor as the 111th justice of the
Supreme Court by a vote of 68-31. She will be the first
Hispanic and the third woman to serve on the court."

I had hoped that after Obama was elected that we had gotten the "appointing someone based solely on the color of their skin, even if they are wholly incompetent for the job" thing out of our collective systems. I guess not.
