With the support of three renegade Republicans (Romney of Utah, Collins of Maine, and Murkowski of Alaska), Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson was confirmed as a new Justice of the Supreme Court.

Her qualifications were beyond dispute. She is one of the most qualified members of the Court. she received the highest possible rating from the American Bar Association (Trump’s last appointee, Justice Barrett, did not).

She won’t change the 6-3 balance on the deeply divided Court, but she will bring a fresh perspective, a great intellect, a deep respect for the Constitution, and a judicial temperament that enabled four days of withering and unfair attacks by ambitious Republican Senators who we’re competing for the QAnon sector of the GOP base.

A great choice! Justice prevailed.
