Ketanji Brown Jackson made a promise in her Supreme Court confirmation hearing this week before the Senate.
KBJ is the person whom biologist Joe Biden assures us is “a black woman” in accordance with his earlier promise to nominate a person of that sex and color as a great act of noblesse oblige for which he, as a non-black non-woman, we think, should be honored in history, especially in view of his dementia. Surely he’ll now join Barack Obama, Al Gore and Yassar Arafat in receiving a Nobel Peace Prize. I wonder if he’ll deposit the check into that joint checking account he shares with Hunter.
We have to take Joe’s word for KBJ’s sex and color. Since she’s not a biologist, KBJ herself is unable to confirm that she’s a woman and it’s not clear whether she’s able to confirm that she’s black.
