one good thing about for AG is maybe we get a new senator who doesn't block me on Twitter -- and also I'll be able to say the AG blocks me on Twitter

What Justice Sotomayor says in this clip ("...under that definition, a hot dog is a sandwich") is an illustration of judicial misuse of a dictionary. Dictionaries don't purport to make categorization judgments; they merely try to reflect how words are used.

Make no mistake. Brian Kemp used the power of one elected office to steal a higher one. If this is tenable to you, take a civics class. (Also, Kris Kobach tried this in Kansas and got beat because nobody likes him.)
