Marshalling the Base 1

No doubt the Honorable Mr. Marshall’s having been one of “those kind of people” had nothing to do with it.

From TPM:

Looks like Senate Judiciary Republicans have at least one unified talking point today: Justice Thurgood Marshall, the first African-American to ever serve on the Supreme Court, was an “activist judge.” As Elena Kagan kept on her listening face, multiple senators slammed both Marshall’s judicial philosophy and her service as his clerk in the late 1980s.

Grandstanding bigotry is such a tribute to Republicanism.

    I’m surprised that you are attributing to racism what can be a disagreement on political philosophy about judicial restraint.
    I thought better of you.
