    How is a blogger three years out of law school being elevated to a lifetime federal judgeship a good thing for our judiciary and our nation?

    I wasn’t an Obama supporter, and you have to go back to the 1960s before you find a president I liked. Stop deflecting.

    This is how it works kids, the right had to suck up all of Obamas appoints and now the left has to suck up all of trumps.

    The good thing for us by the time trumps 4 yrs are up most of them will be filled with younger conservatives

    1. What are you talking about?
    2. How is picking a candidate solely b/c of race or gender a good thing for our judiciary and our nation? i.e. wise Latina. (not asserting, just asking)
