It was a tongue-in-cheek comment as far as Sotomayor goes.

Still, our judicial system operates pretty well once the legal questions are settled and everybody gets on the same page. The lower courts' reluctance to rule in our favor is much more a reflection of the incomplete 2A framework than their desire to rewrite the law from the bottom up. After all, these are low level bureaucrats and innovation is to them a foreign concept.
