    doesn't have a Catholic quota for the court.

    Scalia, Roberts, Kennedy, Thomas, Alito, Sotomayor are Catholic--granted ONLY (!!) 4 are white males. Yet that's 6 out of 9 who are Catholics. Catholics make up 22% of the US, yet they are represented as 3 times that with 66% of the court. Where is Buchanan's Catholic quota?

      requirements for his type of Catholic acceptance.

      The guy is incredible. It is always about nativism.

        Even if the court only had ONE jew on the court, that would mean that Jews would be overrepresented 10 fold based on their overall population. With just a single justice. So unless we have maybe a justice with a jewish toe...we can't have jews on the court!

          he and his ilk call Quotas. However, he doesn't seem to have a problem limiting Ms. Kagan due to her ethnicity. Remember meritocracy was his mantra.

          I was just ironically commenting on how PB differentiates his beloved Roman Catholic practicing justices on the SCOTUS. Justice Sotomoyor was not one of his preferences.
