4REAL! GOP Senators Oppose Ketanji Brown Jackson for Supreme Court Because She’s Too Qualified

The Republican Party has for decades devoted itself to a platform of nothing more substantive than obstructing the good faith efforts of Democrats to advance the interests of the American people. They are proudly anti-government, which makes them a dreadfully poor choice for holding any position of power in the service of the public.

The GOP (Greedy One Percent) is a party that is defined mainly by what they are against. They oppose taxes, immigration, the environment, consumer protections, and the rights of voters, minorities, women, and workers.

Now, as President Biden’s nominee for the Supreme Court, Ketanji Brown Jackson, is being confirmed by the Senate, the Republican members of the Judiciary Committee have revealed themselves to be steadfastly against justices who have the “drawbacks” of being experienced and qualified.

This characterization of Republican obstructionism is not hyperbole. It can be heard in their own words as they announce their intentions to vote against Judge Brown. The Daily Show has helpfully complied the statements of opposition by the Committee’s GOP blockaders, who shamelessly maligned Judge Jackson during the hearings, along with their utterly unreasonable reasons for doing so:

For the record, the Republicans featured in this video are John Cornyn, Josh Hawley, Mike Lee, Marsha Blackburn, Thom Tillis, Chuck Grassley, and Lindsey Graham. And they all delivered remarks that at first effusively praised Jackson’s qualifications and integrity, before announcing that they would vote against her. It’s almost as if Jackson’s qualifications and integrity were the reasons for their “no” vote. And in a sense that’s true.

Republicans are scared witless of intelligent and accomplished people like Jackson because it blows apart their malicious mission to portray them all as moochers, criminals, and degenerates. And they are so averse to the notion of confirming an admirable Black woman who was nominated by a Democratic president that they have allowed whatever measure of rationality, principle, or patriotism to leak out of their tiny, partisan, racist minds.

To date the vast majority of Republican senators are planning to vote against Jackson. Only three have have indicated that they will vote to confirm her (Lisa Murkowski, Susan Collins, and Mitt Romney). And what they get for their bipartisan integrity is rancid animosity from fellow Republicans like Marjorie Taylor Greene who tweeted…

That sort of repulsive defamation is standard operating procedure for the GOP. It’s also not surprising coming from the party of QAnon that has been so obsessed with crackpot conspiracy theories about child abuse and sex trafficking run out of pizza parlor basements. That’s seriously the devolutionary state of today’s Republican Party. And while The Daily Show is adept at ridiculing it, the comedy only goes so far when the reality is even worse.

  1. Isn’t that the reason why the ReichLiars refused to vote for Sonia Sotomayor?

  2. Once more, the Party of Rethugs proves to us all just how unfit & unable they are. to function as part of democratic system of cooperative government!
    We do not need/want a gov’t unable to function for the good of our nation & people because 1 Party REFUSES to participate in good faith, in the proper running of this Country for the benefit of the American People! They enjoy having the power & many perks of the job, but refuse to do the work & honor the Oath they took when elected.
    When a person insists on working against everything that is for our benefit, you remove them. When it’s an entire political party, you must do the same. Especially true when that same Party is behind an attempted coup to retain power not given to them by The People!

  3. “Moochers, criminals, degenerates”? That describes our new Trumpian Republicans to a “T”. Just because it was brought up in KBJ’s interview that she gave a teenage boy who was figuring out his sexual identity a chance, with a reduced sentence, so she wouldn’t ruin his life; the radical racist right is using it as a cover for their bigotry against a black woman who is a judge. More qualified than the Senators judging HER. Marjorie Taylor Greene takes it to a whole new level calling Senators who voted FOR KBJ pedophiles. But we must realize that this woman has lost her hold on reality, most likely legally insane. Georgia, WHY did you sic her on us??

    • Were she to lose in November would be immensely satisfying, although a relatively small change in the GOP overall.
