Hola wonkerados.

Also, if you are a new commenter, your comment may never appear. This is probably because we hate you.


  1. Canmon (the Inadequate)

    Those voting for “Only Fair” thought it referred to skin tone.

  2. NoWireHangers

    I’d like to see her numbers now that we know how she really feels about beans, pork, and rice.

  3. Lascauxcaveman

    Well you know, the average American, having heard a week or two ago that she was rumored to be the pick, got out to the library to dig through old legal journals, and spent many days with the teh googles searching for analysis of her legal career and past judgements.

    Either that or they saw something on FOX or CNN. One of those.

    So they know all there is to know about this lady.

  4. SayItWithWookies

    Oddly enough, that 13% thought he’d made a poor selection a week before he had made it.

  5. Advocatus_Diaboli

    Gallup should have included one other option: “No idea what I’m talking about, but I’ll pass judgment anyway.”
    If those polled were honest, I’m sure that would have garnered about 99%.

  6. rambone

    Clearly Miss Maria Chimichangamayor needs to show a little more T & A. Or maybe less.

  7. x111e7thst

    If a poll were conducted and US Americans answered honestly 19% would say that they had an excellent chance of finding their ass on the first try if they got to use both hands.

  8. user-of-owls

    That 20% in the middle? That’s all the beaners in the sample, who thought the question was, “Isn’t about time one of La Raza got nominated for Los Supremos?” And they answered unanimously, “Si. After all the grief we’ve taken, it’s only fair!”

  9. GreyPanter

    Anyways, she is of the wrong ethnic group. Sotomayor is not sufficiently fat to empathize with the morbidly obese, whose rights are being trampled upon by the airlines, who squeeze them into tiny seats. We need an unborn baby on the Supreme Court. Also.

  10. sanantonerose

    I’m still waiting to hear her views on Roe v. Wade. Stealth candidate? I ain’t assuming nothing!

  11. snideinplainsight

    As you may know, unless you were living under a big fat rock for, like, the last three weeks…

  12. Mustang

    Anybody who wants to get rid of white men is a-okay by me. And I’m every bit as informed as the retards that participated in that survey.

  13. ThePerfesser

    El grupo Gallup also polled in Columbia Heights, where the choices were
    1) Excellente
    2) Muy bueno
    3) Guatemala
    4) Guatepeor
    5) Ay, Chihuahua

    99% of the responses came back excellente, but Fox says they really don’t count ’cause they’re “panny.” And – as Republicans in California, Nevada, New Mexico, and Colorado can tell you, them messicans don’t vote. The other pannies don’t vote either. Also.

  14. Mangodash

    Gotta question the credentials of the pollster who thought that “only fair” was a reasonable inclusion in this model.

  15. JimmySlick

    [re=326810]Mangodash[/re]: lol, so trueee, that category would confuse the hell out of me. [a]http://fit-review.com/[/a]
