Even for a legal nerd like myself, Sonia Sotomayor’s confirmation hearings have been fairly dull. So our friends at The UpTake took the liberty of spicing up the day’s most interesting back-and-forth—between Sotomayor and Utah’s Orrin Hatch.

So, there you have it: Sonia Sotomayor is Michelangelo.

WE DON'T KNOW

What's going to happen next as the headlines grow crazier and more disconcerting by the day. But we do know the job of an independent, unrelenting press is more important than ever—and the ongoing commitment of MoJo readers to fight for a democracy where facts matter and all can participate is absolutely vital.

If you feel the urgency deep in your bones like we do, please consider signing up as a monthly donor during our fall pledge drive to support Mother Jones' fair and fearless reporting for the long haul (or make a one-time gift if that works better for you). The headlines may fade, but the need to investigate the powerful never will.
