What if, instead of gay-baiting Elena Kagan, conservatives religion-bait her? "If Kagan is confirmed, Jews, who represent less than 2 percent of the U.S. population, will have 33 percent of the Supreme Court seats," former presidential candidate Pat Buchanan gripes.
If Kagan is confirmed, Jews, who represent less than 2 percent of the U.S. population, will have 33 percent of the Supreme Court seats.
Is this the Democrats' idea of diversity?
Then, Uncle Pat segues into a lament for the power WASPs and caucasian Catholics of yore:
But while leaders in the black community may be upset, the folks who look more like the real targets of liberal bias are white Protestants and Catholics, who still constitute well over half of the U.S. population.
Not in living memory has a Democratic president nominated an Irish, Italian or Polish Catholic, though these ethnic communities once gave the party its greatest victories in the cities and states of the North.
What happened to the party of the Daleys, Rizzos and Rostenkowskis?
And not in nearly half a century has a Democratic president nominated a white Protestant or white Catholic man or woman.
He then praises Republicans for nominating white judges. Phew, there is a safe haven still for white people who think a guy arrested leading people around a desert was the son of God. [WND, TPM, pic of Pat from 1996 via AP]
