Layman Opinion #453

So the President's first pick for the Supreme Court is a racist, bigoted liberal, and some folks appear to be in a tizzy about it.

So what? Did anyone honestly expect anything different? And while it's tempting emotionally to want to jump up and down and be a pile of blistered dicks like the Dems were for Bush's judicial appointments, it would serve no purpose. So I'm in the camp that says "stand up, ask good questions that illustrate the candidate's strengths and weaknesses, do some work to verify that she's qualified and clean, and assuming that she is that, vote to confirm."

He's the President - he gets to appoint, the Senate is only supposed to guard against incompetence or illegality, not political philosophy.

Lead by example, gents.
