  •  DIfferent for it's own sake? No. (0+ / 0-)

    Different because it's hopefully better.  Like she said.

    Your premise that bringing in perspectives is good in and of itself even if it doesn't result in any better perspectives makes the court seem like a legislature.

    No one here would accept the same statement from a white male.

    Because minorities are pretty well educated in the world of the white male just by living here, largely working for us and coming in contact with us on a daily basis.  We're easily observed.  No surprises there.

    You're better off reading Josh Marshall in the first place.

    •  We can't answer Republican hipocrisy with our own (0+ / 0-)

      The statement has to be explained. I'm sure they are working on a response to the eventual question.

      •  Good thing it's not hypocrisy. (0+ / 0-)

        It's all consistently "my background gives me a helpful perspective".  It's consistent in every position.

      •  The statement is a sentence (0+ / 0-)

        pulled out of speech that goes on for five pages. It's a well-developed essay on the fallacy of pure objectivity and the value of having people other than white men on the bench (which as I mentioned above was something Saint Ronnie promoted). The entire essay explains where she's coming from; the soundbite distorts her thinking by simplifying it and deliberately trying to agitate people.
