This week, Paula Abdul's Idol journey ended, Sonia Sotomayor's SCOTUS journey officially began, Michael Jackson moved closer to posthumously setting a new record for most autopsies, and Bill Clinton added another line to his resume: superstar envoy.

Lack of diversity and a long history of racial intolerance has taken its toll on the Republican brand with the fastest growing non-white part of the population: Hispanics.
GOP, let me warn you, your affront to Sotomayor is seen as an affront to all Latinas and will not be forgotten easily. This will stick. You are now officially doomed.
Sotomayor joins a Court controlled by conservatives loyal to an ideology that consistently places powerful interest groups ahead of the law.
The gun lobby's behavior in the Sotomayor matter reveals much about what makes the organization tick and even more about the politics of gun control.
