Grijalva wants Senator Kyl's job

Rather than address concerns about his own voting record and the tab he is running up on Arizonan's dime, Raul Grijalva is spending his time criticizing Arizona Senators for voting their concience. Grijalva spent time this week creating a press release criticizing news reports that Arizona senator John Kyl may vote against Sonia Sotomayor's nomination to the Supreme Court.
Kyl, a Rupublican minority leader, has good reason to question Sotomayor's abilities as a judge. Her most recent written poorly written decision was overturned on appeal by the Supreme Court. Contrary to Grijalva's assertion that Soromayor "has excelled in her career for making decisions based on the law, not on her personal views" The facts, and her statements speak clearly otherwise. In a 2002 speech, Sotomayor told students their “experiences as women and people of color” in their decisionmaking, which she believes should “affect our decisions.”
She is described by coworkers as a “bully” who “does not have a very good temperament,” and who “abuses lawyers” with “inappropriate outbursts.”
In fact Grijalva's attacks on Kyl are part of a Democrat and liberal Hispanic interest groups' hatchet job on any criticism of the nomination, designed to bring Sotomayor through the process unscathed and to make President Obama look good, see

Grijalva continues to act on behalf of President Obama and not on behalf of the people of Arizona.
Wouldn't Grijalva's editorial time be better served explaining how his liberal Democratic Caucus intends to pay for the trillions of dollars it has wasted trying to stimulate the economy and the trillions more it intends to waste on a national government-run health care system?
