"Just Tell Them...

I have worked 40 years to make the Women's Suffrage platform broad enough for Atheists and Agnostics to stand upon, and now if need be I will fight the next 40 to keep it Catholic enough to permit the straightest Orthodox religionist to speak or pray and count her beads upon."

Here's something worth exploring... (The Sexist, Racist Take-Down of Sotomayor)

"Why is it that Kathleen Sullivan (who famously failed the bar exam) and Elena Kagan (who was an undistinguished student during her first semester of law school) are widely regarded (by Jan Crawford Greenberg, at least) as "brilliant" and smart, while Sonia Sotomayor (a summa cum laude graduate of Princeton and a member of the American Philosophical Society) is derided as an intellectual lightweight? This whole episode makes me sick to my stomach. Unfairly maligning a fair good jurist based on nothing more than gossip and stereotypes..."

Quoted from "Anonymous" in the comments section of Dissenting Justice.

Yes,"Anonymous." It makes me sick too.

Could someone please please help enlighten us about gender/ racial/ and sexual orientation coded standards for the SCOTUS bench?
