More "wise Latina" foolishness

Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor has voiced her dopey "wise Latina" sentiments before. Rich Lowry points to a version from a speech in 1999:
... I accept the proposition that a difference will be made by the presence of women on the bench and that my experiences will affect the facts that I choose to see as a judge.
She said under questioning yesterday that her words declaring the superiority of non-white female judges were merely "aspirational". That seems unlikely.
