Today, President Barack Hussein Obama nominated Merrick Garland, a veteran federal appeals court judge, for the vacancy on the US Supreme Court left open by the recent death of Associate Justice Antonin Scalia.
If approved by the US Senate, Garland would be the fourth Jew on the highest court in the land. While Jews make up less than 2% of America’s population, Garland’s appointment would mean that they comprise 44% of the Supreme Court.
Meanwhile, white Southern Protestants are still waiting for representation on this august body. If you are a member of this “out group,” isn’t secession and Southern independence sounding better and better with each passing day?
