I’m afraid we as a nation have not yet gotten past the point of tokenism. What do you think Scalia was when he got on the court or Sotormayor or Thomas. Each was picked not just for their abilities but for their backgrounds. When we can all be judged by the content of our hearts and the knowledge we have acquired then we will be on our way to form a more perfect union, we just aren’t there yet.

In modern times there has been no one as destructive of the nation as Scalia. So, regardless of who gets to be the next SCJ we have improved the court. Even the GOP could not find someone as evil as Scalia, he was one of a kind. I expect Thomas to melt down and go soon too, now that his boyfriend is gone.

Aka tokenism – deeply demeaning to the court and, by extension, the nation at large.
