Gays Groups Pushing for Dykes on Supreme Court


Oh how much fun conservatives will have talking about how those boxy black robes are perfect for potential SCOTUS picks Kathleen Sullivan and Pam Karlan. Of course, the business of declaring that certain candidates are on Obama’s list of “picks” is really just hope for a self-fulfilling prophecy. [Politico]

    I would love a smart, tough lesbian on the court…(either that, or Judge Judy)…I’m afraid any lesbian would be put thru confirmation Hell by the rethugs, but having “family” on the court is still a nice, if unlikely, thought to entertain…how great would it be to see the faces of Thomas and Scalia if a lady-lover was on the bench…ha! She’d own their asses.

    a gay nominee?

    i wouldn’t be surprised if he nominated an RIAA lawyer with the way he’s stuffed the justice department.

    I COMPLETELY agree with Dennis — a lesbian on the bench is LONG overdue. Here’s hoping this will lead to a more fab and a more fair bench!

    *cough* Well I don’t share the opinion that putting up a queer for a seat on the SCOTUS would be super. I would much prefer a well rounded, reasoned choice that was likely to continue where Justice Souter left off. If that person happens to be gay, fine, but making that a selection criteria is something else entirely.

    If Sotomayor were a lesbian (does anyone know?), then she would be the perfect female, latina, lesbian candidate.
