Sonia Sotomayor: Put the wand away and no one gets hurt

by

No sooner is Barack Obama re-elected than his first Supreme Court appointee is out spreading his radical anti-princess agenda.

Sonia Sotomayor appeared on Sesame Street to confront a pink muppet named Abby who was dressed as a Disney-style princess, telling her that pretending to be a princess “is definitely not a career,” and encouraging girls to be “a teacher, a lawyer, a doctor, an engineer and even a scientist” instead.

But her profession hasn’t been very helpful to Kevin Clash, the puppeteer who plays Elmo on the iconic kids’ show.

He took a leave of absence after being accused of sexual misconduct, an accusation that was then recanted in a statement by the accuser’s law firm.

Maybe he’d be happier if more people became princesses, not lawyers.
