LAURA INGRAHAM: What Americans saw in this confirmation hearing, to the extent that they’re watching at all, is a complete farce. What they saw was a Supreme Court nominee chosen not primarily for her intellect and stellar judicial record, but, at least in part, for her skin color. Now, the Biden pledge to select a female African-American justice was both discriminatory and demeaning, as if somehow minorities couldn’t make it without Joe’s affirmative action.
How insulting. Now, much of the questioning by Republican senators was devoted to hot-button cases, such as her lenient sentencing decisions in child pornography prosecutions. And of course, in an attempt to blunt the revealing moments from Judge Jackson’s performance under sharp questioning, Democrat senators have dwelled on her personal biography, her academic credentials, and the historic nature of her appointment.
