The Senate voted today to confirm Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson to the Supreme Court. She will be sworn in when Justice Stephen G. Breyer retires this summer.
This is a very big deal. Besides being the first justice to be confirmed for President Handsome Joe Biden, and the first from a Democratic Party President in 12 year —and especially after the 3 unqualified justices (the skunk, the drunk, and the religious quidnunc)— Jackson is also the first Black woman SCOTUS justice in US History.
And no one should overlook the fact that presiding over the Senate vote was Vice President Kamala Harris, the first Black woman to hold that post.
Today was a day for Cleo, the Muse of History, and I couldn’t be more pleased.
I didn’t get tears, but my eyes welled. This was a nice thing to see.

And, naturally, the GQPers who voted against her walked out of the chamber like a bunch of petulant toddlers who didn’t get the sweets they demanded. I’d normally say they should be ashamed of themselves, but of course, they’re incapable of feeling shame (or any other positive emotion).
Republican principles. I hear it’s chock full of electrolytes.
absolutely X 2.
Except Mitt Romney.
Good form, Mitt.
