Too many Jews on Supreme Court: Buchanan

Pat Buchanan has attacked Elena Kagen, U.S. President Barack Obama's latest Supreme Court nominee, using a different tactic. He said there are too many Jews on the Supreme Court. In a column he wrote for WorldNetDaily on Friday, he said:
"If Kagan is confirmed, Jews, who represent less than 2 percent of the US population, will have 33 percent of the Supreme Court seats. Is this the Democrats' idea of diversity?"
Honestly, it's unclear where Buchanan got the idea that choices for the Supreme Court have to exactly mirror the U.S. population. If that were the case, there should be 5 women on the Supreme Court, as women outnumber men in the U.S.

Or rather, there should be 4 women and a transvestite, perhaps, since the number of women in the U.S. is only slightly more than men. Additionally, it would mean that you could never have a Jew on the Supreme Court unless the nominee were only partly Jewish, based on his statement.

Karl Frisch at MediaMatters points out a couple of important things. One, that in 1977, Buchanan called Hitler "an individual of great courage, a soldier’s soldier in the Great War, a leader steeped in the history of Europe ..."

Second, he notes that this breakdown of the religious affiliation of all Supreme Court justices (ever) proves that Buchanan should be pointing at Episcopalians it he wants to complain. They have have accounted for 32.4 percent of all Supreme Court justices, but only represent 1.7 percent of the U.S. population.

So why not Buchanan complained about the serious over-representation and the Episcopalians and Presbyterians on the bench? They accounted for 50 percent of all judges, and only 4.5 percent of the U.S. population.

United States is only slightly more than men. It would also mean that you could never be a Jew to the Supreme Court, unless the candidate was only partly Jewish

I got to know about that seats are reserved in the supreme court by this passage "If Kagan is confirmed, Jews, who represent less than 2 percent of the US population, will have 33 percent of the Supreme Court seats. Is this the Democrats' idea of diversity?"Thanks for sharing such an interesting post.

Remember when Bay and Ann disputed the intellect of Winky Palin? And Bay "The President Is Dumbing Down The Supreme Court" Buchanan insisted that Winky was the most qualified VP nominee since Dick Cheney? And your brain began to hurt with realization that Coulter was not the most psychotic woman in America. Oh! the cognitive dissonance.

nference not supported by available evidence. The Jews on the Court might or might not be religious. Generally speaking, not many are and of course it's not something that comes up in confirmation hearings.

As for the Catholics, well, hard to say. Technically there's no such thing as an "ethnic Catholic" but in some ways you might as well act as if there were.

Internet Slander said...

I wonder how long crazy people like Buchanan, Palin, Beck, Limbaugh, et al will get centre stage. I know the truth comes out eventually - especially with ready access info on the internet. Don't these people read? Or do they just listen to right-wing christian radio? Something's definitely missing here.

As for Buchanan's question about the Irish, Italians and Poles: they lean Republican now that the Democratic Party, together with the unions, have made them prosperous enough to despise their less-fortunate neighbors
