4. Many justices were never judges at all....
there's no question that this guy is qualified. In fact, he's more qualified than many nominees in the past.

21. Argued something like 39 cases before the Supreme Court
Won something like 25.

Let's not make fools of ourselves, people. We simply can't argue that he's not qualified -- there are plenty of other reasons to oppose him. Competence ain't one of them.

6. Sexual harrassment?
When do the women start coming forward to allege sexual harrassment on this guy?

But you know, he looks a little gay to me. Maybe that's why Bush picked him...

11. His white penis. That's the most important criteria to be on the SCOTUS
Republican Creed: There must be a penis and is should be white. The rest is well just secondary.
