Quote of the Day: Men on the Court


From Kathryn Jean Lopez, tweeting about Elena Kagan’s nomination to the Supreme Court:

just wondering: are men allowed to be nominated to the supreme court anymore?

It’s pretty remarkable just how little it takes to bring out the pity party in conservatives. Two women in a row and suddenly men are an endangered class in the American legal profession. Conservatives may not care much about discrimination against minorities, but they sure do snap to attention quickly whenever they spy any potential slight against the majority, don’t they?
