    Same end result though, cherry picking, partisan garbage is what is being spewed. Sorry to shine light into the dark.
    Believing that race and sex have a roll to play in making judgments = the very definitions of racism and sexism.

    I am a minority & experienced prejudice

That's why they had no problems with dragging our country into the sewer before they got booted out.

    Bye Bye old white fart politics.....good riddance..
    Golden, you may be a bit harsh on some of these "old farts “but I think that your sentiment is in the right place.

    What some of these people do not want to understand that there are those of us who bring something to a political or legal process because of background and or experience? I am a minority and I have experienced prejudice. I am also White and a male and I am an immigrant. I was very young when I came here so I do not have an accent and I do not dress in funny robes or hats or turbans so it's not obvious that I am an immigrant.

    I recall when I was a little kid and I was riding a bike with training wheels a woman came out of the Baptist Church from across the street and started yelling me. The Bitch said "you little DP, you come here to take our jobs and our rents, you only like Yankee dollars you don't like Yankees".

    I went in to ask my Mother what a DP was. Well it's a DISPLACED PERSON!!
    Many of us came here after WW II from Europe and we were "Displaced" because my parents could not go back to their country since the Communists took over when the filthy Russians invaded. I also know what it feels like to be asked why don't I change my name to a “real American name” my answer is which one? Massachusetts, or Connecticut, or Quindío, Mohegan, Algonquian, or Pequot.

    Did this experience leave me angry or vindictive, no !! What it did leave me with is the ability to understand what it took this woman to get where she got. I also can understand that for some of you when you say that she is not qualified I have to ask why / am it because she does not have a "real American" name? Is she less smart because her name isn't Smith? Some of you may think so at least subconsciously. Yet you will not say that you will find other excuse to call her unqualified.

    I know that some of you think that way, why, because I have experienced it!!!!

    I can't understand why being Latino and female makes one more qualified to make certain judgments than being Caucasian and male. Again law is objective not subjective this is an automatic disqualification.

    being a judge requires interpretion and that requires both objective components and there are subjective components.

    Do you even understand what impartial means? You need to leave your own past experiences, biases, prejudices, sympathies, apathies, etc at the door. You need to check them when you put that robe on and if you can not you're in the wrong field. If you think bringing them like a chip, or a weight, on your shoulder helps you be a more impartial judge you have zero understanding of how the judicial branch is supposed to work.

    Perhaps judges should put out long bios and folks should get to pick who hears their case based on who is most likely to have had experiences that will be easiest to exploit in ones favor.

    Yeah just as the moon bat left did with Miguel Estrada? The same Estrada who had stronger academic credentials than most people elevated to the Court of Appeals? The Estrada that the ABA judged-without a single dissent-to be well qualified? The Estrada that ALL FOUR LIVING FORMER DEMO ADMINISTRATION SOLICITOR GENERALS ENDORSED FOR THE BENCH


    The slimey dems claimed he had no judicial experience. Well kids neither did RUTH BADER GINSBURG when she was made an appellate Judge and nor did THURGOOD MARSHALL when he was elevated to the court.

    Later, a memo was produced showing he was BLOCKED for RACIST REASONS-the SLIMEY DEMS didn't want Bush to appoint a HISPANIC to the court and groom Estrada for the supremes.

    Well she did quote a socialist in her college yearbook. Odd choice if you're not a socialist.
