This is why I can't vote Republican anymore. Stupid overload.
So Tuesday afternoon, the Washington Times (Motto, "All the news everyone else would be embarrassed to print") cries to the world that 3 out of 5 of the decisions that Sotomayor was involved in which came before SCOTUS were overturned. That, they claimed was a 60% reversal rate.
AHHHHG! EVERYONE RUN AND HIDE!!!!!!!!! ACTIVIST JUDGE COOTIES!!!11!!!
But even a casual perusal of the data easily shows that the Times is (surprise!) full of it. Sotomayor participated in 380 cases as an appellate judge. That's a helluva body of work. Of the decisions in which she participated, only 5 were granted a Writ of Certiorari by the SC. Of those 3 were overturned. That's a 1.3% review rate and only a 0.79% reversal rate. Pretty damned impressive, actually.
