Down the rabbit hole and through the looking glass

"The best umpires, to use the popular analogy, must not only call balls and strikes, but also have spent enough time on the playing field to know the strike zone," Brown said.

By his own logic, then, any player should get to be an umpire, which really means that Kagan is perfectly qualified, having argued many cases before the Supreme Court already.

Yeah, if he's trying to say the best judges have been judges, wouldn't that mean the best umpires have been umpires. Of course, that really wouldn't have made sense, but that's never stopped a bad sports analogy before.

Sometimes, I think sports were invented to allow people to make ridiculous analogies.

Yes, and 3 Jewish justices, which is far more significant given that Jews make up 1% of the population whereas Women make up 50%. Secondarily, there are no Protestant members on the court which is very important because the United States was fundamentally founded upon Protestant Christian values - that is a historical fact not a moral judgement - and of course to this day the vast majority of Americans are Christians of one denomination or another.

That nobody seems to want to talk about this too much is problematic.

I've heard a lot of people talking about that. I'm sure you have too. You do know that most of the founding fathers were deists, right?

She will not be guided by the Constitution, but rather her feelings/empathy.

I doubt it. And all you have is meaningless conjecture since no one on the planet knows how she is going to trend on present and future issues before the justices.

With all these women on the bench does this mean the male justices now have to wear pants underneath their robes? Just wondering... LOL!

I think this is good. They need even more. Hopefully some of the right wingers on the court will trundle off to meet Jebus before Obama is out of office.

Having a dialogue with teabaggers is doomed to fail - all they do is shriek about socialism and Obama being from Kenya. Can't converse with the likes of that.
