I was going to say something mean about the minority party members of the Senate Judiciary Committee, but then I took a look at the membership and I realized something important:
— Jeff Sessions (R-AL) — Orrin Hatch (R-UT) — Charles Grassley (R-IA) — Jon Kyl (R-AZ) — Lindsey Graham (R-SC) — John Cornyn (R-TX) — Tom Coburn (R-OK)
Those guys are really qualified! Not a woman or minority among them! No identity politics, no weak affirmative action picks, just the straight-up best-qualified white men the country has to offer. An absolutely, positively stellar group. Unadorned meritocracy in action. A thing to behold.
