The New York Times:

Much attention, however, focused on Judge Sotomayor’s remark in 2001: "I would hope that a wise Latina woman with the richness of her experiences would more often than not reach a better conclusion than a white male who hasn't lived that life."

Senator Susan Collins, Republican of Maine, who voted to confirm Judge Sotomayor in 1998, said she needed a fuller explanation and would request one at a meeting set for Thursday. "I need to know what the context of that comment was," Ms. Collins said.
Okay, Sen. Collins wants context. How about, y'know, reading the speech?

Hint: A link to it--and some sane right-wing commentary--can be found here.

Nobody reads the whole thing. Not speeches, not rulings, not bills, not the whole bailout book.

It's a shame. We get what we accept.
