C’mon, guys, we all know what you’re doing. You’re hiding behind nonsense so a black woman is not the next Associate Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court. And you will fail.
All the bickering by republicans opposing Ketanji Brown Jackson’s appointment are baloney. The republicans just don’t want a black woman sitting on the country’s highest court. Or they’re playing to the hometown crowds with the usual expectations for their own re-election bids. Or both.
It’s politics as usual. And it’s about time that stopped. Have you heard anything about her qualifications? They’re certainly good enough especially when compared to some of the dolts who’ve been confirmed for that job.
Yes, yes, one has to put nominees through major hell. But enough, already. She’s good enough. And maybe better than a lot of the men who’ve sat on that bench. If she were white, there wouldn’t be the kind of upset we’re seeing among the senators who oppose her.
It’s the 21st century, people. This is not a hard thing to understand. It’s not a total shock. It’s not even all that interesting.
The court has been given a strong right wing lately. Now it’s time for a different voice. And just because the nominee is both black and female scares a lot of the political hacks in the Senate. They didn’t do all this to Sandra Day O’Connor in the 1980s, though there were some minorish efforts. How tough is it to approve this woman and won’t you please get to it. Like, now.
Face it, Senators, the time for an all white government is past its prime. If you don’t approve the current nominee, there’ll be another who thinks, rules and looks just like her. It’s already past the time when you can do these tricks so that a black woman can’t sit on the nation’s highest court. And in your heart of hearts, you know this.
