Did Repubs disrespect Supreme Ct nominee Jackson? How did she do answering questions?
She'll get confirmed.
Most (Repubs and Indeps) think she got grilled like other folks. Dems don't agree. Personally, I think the Republicans could have gotten the same results and been less prickly
Jackson couldn't explain what a "women" is because "she's not a biologist". To that I say, maybe she's not the first black woman to go on the court. Oops...maybe it's easier to define what an African American is?
