Republican Senators began questioning Supreme Court nominee Ketanji Brown Jackson on the second day of her confirmation hearings, issues ran the gamut from A to B and back again to A.
Senatorette. Lindsey Graham —who previously supported her lower-court nominations— pressed her on her faith (you know, so he could moan about the questions that Justice Amy Coney Barrett was asked), and about her utterly unobjectionable representation of Guantanamo Bay detainees during her time as a public defender. And then he stormed out of the meeting after declaring a jihad against Afghanistan leaders, for some reason:
Brother Charlie Pierce won the internet:
Jackson was able to rebut Q-baiting accusations from Sen. Proud Boi Lite Josh Hawley (R-Satan’s Hollow) that she had been lenient when sentencing child porn offenders: “As a mother and a judge who has had to deal with these cases, I was thinking that nothing could be further from the truth.”
Unable to find a compelling reason to oppose Jackson, Republicans have cranked up the racism dial to 11…
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) found a children’s book and asked her what she thought of it
And the official GOP Twitter account attempting to link her to the bogeyman of critical race theory:
And I think that is the state of play.
She has had that exasperated look of a smart Black woman having to listen to mediocre racist white men racistwhitemansplain shit wrong to her all day.
Her reply to Cancun should have been. “I don’t know, Senator. Perhaps if you looked in a mirror you could tell me”.
You know that thought was there…
(also we listened to Grassley go on and on about something something ‘fraud’, and you could tell when he had to stop and reload his Word Salad Shooter. Neither I or Mrs BDR could make heads or tails of it )

Graham has his panties so far up his ass so often I wonder if he has his gynecologist on speed dial.
