    Not sure if the analysis of her voting record as presented here means anything or not.

    What were the particular race involved in those cases? Particularily in the cases in which she parted from the majority.

    She may reserve her racism - if there is any - for instances in which she can vote in favor of her own race.

    I am not sure I follow your logic. First you say that her voting record does not mean anything, and they you say her voting record can be used for judging. Which is it?

    If you read with a little more care - you will see that what I said is:

    "Not sure if the analysis of her voting record as presented here means anything or not."

    I am questioning whether or not the this particular analysis of her judicial record is meaningful.

    I gather from your incomplete sentence that you are asking for the meaning of the word logic.

    Logic is a particular method of reasoning and argumentation. It is the science that investigates the principles governing correct or reliable inference.

    It's better than the conservative propaganda site, WorldNetDaily, that some conservatives think is a legitimate news source.

    Agreed.

    Without knowing the specifics of the 4 cases in which she was in the minority, the statistics are practically meaningless.

    Even further, she sits on a very liberal court and all their decisions will lean in that direction. For her to dissent may mean she was so far left that even the rest of the liberals on the court couldn't go there.
