First the pic reminded me of Michelle Bachman.

Then it reminded me of the guy who would occasionally tell the many women lawyers in the office that he thought they should be at home, cooking and taking care of the children and they had no business working.  (He then played the victim when he and a third of the firm was laid off during truly bad economic times for the firm's specialty.)

I doubt if a conservative reporter will ask her why she is working, instead of being at home with the children.

sprgrss: Gyrfalcon: Why you keep trotting out Rehnquist and Kagan is beyond me. They've already been confirmed. Whatever we may think about their qualifications, it's too late. (Especially Rehnquist, being dead)

Because if we are going to sit there and say "this person lacks the qualifications to be a Supreme Court Justice" pointing to actual Supreme Court justices with similar qualifications is relevant to showing that the claims that this person lacks whatever amorphous qualifications that are required.


If that was the only qualification anyone was talking about, then maybe you'd have a point. Maybe some people are.

However, she lacks breadth in OTHER areas that make ME question her qualifications overall; specifically her lack of breadth in any area besides teaching law in law school, which in MY opinion makes anyone (yes: anyone) unqualified for a seat on the Supreme Court. If all anyone (yes: anyone) had to offer was a couple of years on a circuit or appellate court and a lot of years in the classroom, then they should not be considered for SCOTUS. As I said above, I would consider the brilliant Constitutional scholar Erwin Chemerensky unqualified for a seat on the Supreme Court bench, despite being arguably more "qualified" than anyone currently sitting.

Things may have been different in times past, of course, which is why Rhenquist's confirmation is irrelevant. And of course neither you nor I have any say in the matter, which is why our opinions are also irrelevant.

Wow. Talk about pissing on somebody's grave. Sick and bottomless.
This is why the Democrats can't compete with them. You can barely comprehend the evil.

Like imagine one of those Calvin and Hobbes peeing stickers that everybody ripped off. Imagine that Trump dropped dead, Biden was made President, and to celebrate, the DNC sold those Calvin and Hobbes stickers, with Biden pissing on Trump's grave.

Then Biden would talk a lot about how the White House was so dirty, they had to have a complete overhaul, since Trump apparently couldn't control his bladder.And then he and Obama would appear on camera, laughing like fools.

It would be something like that.

Why you keep trotting out Rehnquist and Kagan is beyond me. They've already been confirmed. Whatever we may think about their qualifications, it's too late. (Especially Rehnquist, being dead)

In general, being a law professor for even 50 years would be a disqualifier for me. Professors are singularly ignorant about the real-world applications of the law, unless they're also practicing attorneys. A lot of them are ideologues. Or they know one narrow area, and are ignorant of other applications.

Being a "Notre Dame law professor" isnt the ringing endorsement you seem to think.

How is her resume any different from the likes of William Rehnquist, Byron White, and any numerous other justices?  23 years teaching at a T-14 law school is pretty impressive so is her prior clerkships along with her academic writing while being a law professor and now three years on the 7th Circuit.

Put it this way: Erwin Chemerinsky is the most renowned Constitutional scholar around--and I think he'd be unqualified as a Supreme Court justice.

Just because some people agree with her legal opinions on originalism doesn't make her eminently qualified to rule on everything from contract law to death penalty cases.
