The problem: Supreme Court Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson’s confirmation.
Cheers to Ketanji Brown Jackson (“Ketanji in the courtyard”, April 8th).
It’s refreshing to see a level-headed person join the shady Supreme Court.
It was ironic and almost comical to see during the proceedings members of the Republican Party questioning Jackson about how they would go easy on sexual dissenters while quite a few members of their party who have the same problem hovered over their heads. That’s how politics works.
We now have the first black female member of the US Supreme Court, Ketanji Brown Jackson.
I believe there should be an asterisk after her name because she was chosen for the color of her skin, hardly a requirement for membership on the course.
I’m not interested in politics, but I think when someone is chosen for a job it’s because they’re the best qualified, not because of race or religion.
If Jackson was the most qualified, why is the fact that she is female and black brought to everyone’s attention?
That lowers their qualifications. Wish her the best of luck in her new position – enough said.
If there is an honor roll that includes members of Congress who act in the heart of the public, it is occupied by Republican Sens. Susan Collins, Lisa Murkowski and Mitt Romney: three people who, despite the bipartisan environment that exists, have the right one today done by voting for the respected Justice Jackson to be the next Supreme Court Justice of the United States.
Despite efforts to smear her — undertaken primarily by Republican arsonists Sens. Josh Hawley, Ted Cruz and Lindsey Graham — Jackson emerged from the dirt with his head held high.
Jackson is a highly respected, extraordinarily qualified candidate with no legitimate skeletons in her closet.
President Biden got his wish after Jackson’s agreement to be bipartisan. The court and the country will be better off.

With Jackson’s confirmation in the Supreme Court, Biden is still trying to portray himself as a “stakeholder” taking minorities to court, which is a total farce.
As a senator in 2001, Biden helped prevent the nomination of Miguel Estrada to the United States Circuit Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit.
Estrada, a George W. Bush nominee, was definitely primed to become the first Hispanic on the Supreme Court. Not only that, but Estrada is a stutterer.
Biden, the senior Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee and a former committee chair, actively helped kill the Estrada nomination through a filibuster. The vote was never taken to the full Senate, where Estrada most likely would have received confirmation.
Shame on you Biden.
Biden has done it again. First, he chose Kamala Harris, considered the most liberal senator, as his vice president.
The Senate confirmed Jackson as the first black woman to serve on the Supreme Court.
Biden had said he would select a black woman and make race and gender his primary criteria for the Supreme Court selection.
When Jackson was asked by Senator Marsha Blackburn to define what a woman was, she couldn’t, saying she was “not a biologist.” Maybe a mirror would help.
Jackson is known to have been lenient with convicted pedophiles, handing out lenient sentences. How does a record of lenient sentences against pedophiles qualify a person as a Supreme Court Justice?
Democrats rejoiced in Jackson’s confirmation by the Supreme Court.
They overlooked that she couldn’t define what a woman is because she’s not a biologist. If she can’t define what a woman is, how do we know she is one?
