Oh, sure, but when a fine, upstanding person like Lindsey Graham is begging a nice young man to fill his vacant seat, you LIB preverts think it's a bad thing!

GrinzGrimly: sinner4ever: We all know the only color that matters is green.

It seems the only color that actually matters is white, as in "We don't care what color they are as long as they aren't white."  This isn't promotion of a particular race, just discrimination against one in particular.

A person's skin color should not prevent them from getting a job if they are the best qualified; that didn't used to be controversial.


Then do tell us, rightwing Trumper, which California Democrat is best qualified for the seat?

They all sound good. And why not Willie Brown, a man of singular distinction in CaliPol?

Can't we just get the best person, regardless of race or gender?

I get the point, but you'll do more damage than good this way.

Funny you mention that a person's skin color should not prevent them from getting the job, yet for well over 100 years in CA, that person's skin color (and number of testicles he has between his legs) were the first requirement to being considered for the job. Now, once we've finally had some female and non-white representation, we get the "oh, we should not be using skin color or gender..." fark off.

stpickrell: I still think Jerry Brown, or a 70+ Hispanic with a distinguished career and no higher ambitions, is the way to go.


In that case i nominate Danny Trejo for the job

stpickrell: fragMasterFlash: I wonder if George Takei would accept being selected for that job? Perhaps governance isn't as much fun without Trump to kick around.

He's 83, so unfortunately his health may not permit it. A decade ago, (in Newsome's shoes) I'd have named him w/o question as he has no higher ambitions and has done wonders for Asian and gay rights.


Japanese 83 is the Caucasian 55, IMHO.

I look forward to hearing from Fark's fine people that only a white man can be selected, otherwise you're using race and gender qualifications.
