|I Don’t Think She’s All That Bad….|
May. 30th, 2009 at 11:06 am
Well, conservative talk radio is all bent out of shape about Obama’s pick for new supreme court judge. I feel kind of good about it myself. But I read on the plot level and love reality TV, too, so consider the source. She just doesn’t seem all that bad to me.
Drudge had headlines about her, quoting this from 2001 “”I would hope that a wise Latina woman with the richness of her experiences would more often than not reach a better conclusion than a white male who hasn’t lived that life.” The remark was in the context her saying that “our gender and national origins may and will make a difference in our judging.”
Like she just said, “I torture, kill and eat small children regularly.”
Frankly, I agree with her. I could say the same thing, leaving out “wise Latina”…..I suppose it’s the latent feminist in me.
I just don’t think she’s going to go out and make abortion or gay marriage mandatory right off the bat and destroy our country. But I believe Anita Hill, too. I don’t like her, but I believe her. So, call me crazy, but I’m not upset at all about this lady. So far.
