Sotomayor told Sen. Sessions that she meant “precedent” rather than “policy” when she said “the Court of appeals is where policy is made.” Curt Levy at the Committee for Justice wants to know why her very next sentence was  “I know this is on tape and I should never say that”?
Sotomayor’s strategy – or to be fair, the White House’s strategy – is to deny the plain meaning of all the controversial things she has said, no matter how implausible her explanation.
