Moonbat of the Week

Keli Goff, a columnist for The Root, a black-oriented news site, wrote earlier this week that “Before Putting Judges on the Bench, Make Them Prove They Have a Diverse Set of Friends.”

That's right -- what used to be a "progressive" snarky remark ("I bet you also have some black friends!") to someone defending themselves from (usually baseless) accusations of racism should now be used to determine judicial fitness.

“So instead of trying to decode what someone meant when she made a comment about a particular civil rights case, perhaps we should ask more pointed questions, like, ‘How many people of color do you know and know well; how do you know them; and, perhaps most important, are your opinions of them generally positive or negative?’”

Goff based her comments on a study which showed that judges with daughters tended to rule in a "feminist direction" (whatever that precisely means). But it doesn't say that these judges were asked about gender-related matters, let alone appointed based on their responses.
