3 Returning GOP Stars Judge Jackson: Darcy Cartoon
CLEVELAND, Ohio — The GOP’s elephant logo is topped with three stars. In Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson’s nomination for the United States Supreme Court, those stars are Senators Susan Collins, Lisa Murkowski and Mitt Romney, who support KBJ’s confirmation. A fitting tribute to the namesake of “The Party of Lincoln”. It makes it all the more unfortunate that Ohio Senator Rob Portman refused to be a fourth star and on the right side of history.
Jackson will be the first black woman to serve on the United States Supreme Court. She is also among the most qualified lawyers ever named. More qualified than some with whom she will serve.
These are just two reasons why it is appalling that only three members of the “Lincoln Party” support Jackson’s confirmation when too many other Confederate senators have engaged in character assassination so despicable that it slanders Jackson as someone who is “pro-pedophile” and would defend Nazis.
Senator Murkowski cited her rejection of this “corrosive politicization” of the review process as one of the reasons she supports Jackson’s confirmation.
“My support is based on Judge Jackson’s qualifications, which no one questions, her demonstrated judicial independence; his behavior and temperament; and the important perspective she would bring to the court in replacing Justice Breyer… She will bring to the Supreme Court a range of courtroom experiences that few can match given her litigation background.
“It also rests on my rejection of the corrosive politicization of the Supreme Court nominee review process, which on both sides of the aisle is getting worse and more detached from reality with each passing year.
Other senators had attempted to portray Jackson as soft on crime, when in reality, her record earned her an endorsement from the Fraternal Order of Police and she has family members in the process. ‘law application.
Senator Romney said Jackson is well qualified and a person of honor.
“After reviewing the record and the testimony of Judge Jackson, I concluded that she was a qualified jurist and a person of honour. Although I don’t expect to agree with every decision she makes in court. I believe she more than meets the standard of excellence and integrity. I congratulate Judge Jackson on her long-awaited confirmation and look forward to her continued service to our nation.
Unlike Jackson, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene is not a person of honor, as she again demonstrated when she tweeted that Senators Romney, Murkowski and Collins were “pro-pedophiles” for supporting the confirmed by Jackson.
Swimming in mud and stupidity with Greene, Senator Tom Cotton actually said that Judge Jackson would have defended the Nazis at the Nuremberg trials.
Sen. Rob Portman, who also voted against Jackson’s confirmation to the Court of Appeals, wrote that he would vote against his confirmation to the Supreme Court for two main reasons. First, Judge Jackson feared legislating from the bench. Second, that she would support increasing the number of Supreme Court justices.
Portman previously voted for confirmations from judges Amy Coney Barrett, Brett Kavanaugh and Neil Gorsuch, all of whom were less qualified than Ketanji Brown Jackson, who is expected to be confirmed by Friday.
