Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor made an appearance on Sesame Street on Sunday to make a point about the word “career.”
As Sotomayor told Abby from Sesame Street, being a princess is not a career because a career is “a job you train for, or prepare for and plan on doing for a long time.”
It’s an important point for young girls to keep in mind, but it just sounds funny coming from the mouth of the princess of government programs that require absolutely no work at all, like, affirmative action, the Dream Act, food stamps and welfare.
Sotomayor has frequently championed these platforms of the Democratic Party, even to the point of calling herself a, “perfect affirmative action baby,” because she made it into Princeton University and Yale University even though her test performance was poor.
She said her admittance to these schools would have been “highly questionable” if it hadn’t been for her hispanic ethnicity.
It may be fun to play at being a princess, she told Abby, but women need to work in order to have a career.
In the end of the episode, Abby decides she wants to be a Supreme Court Justice too.
I mean, who wouldn’t? It’s almost as easy as being a princess.
