    • Here was my neighborhood last night
      Because the family of a mentally ill Philadelphia man holding a knife called for an ambulance, and the cops showed up. They claim he “charged” them and they shot and killed him. The mental health unit is a pilot program and isn’t paid to work on the weekends. Protesters didn’t do this, looters did. (Maybe … Continue reading Here was my neighborhood last nigh […]

      This second excerpt from my interview is more interesting and longer. This is the second clip from my interview with Ian Welsh (Ian blogs at ianwelsh.net). For this segment, we went on a wild ride discussing the big picture mess that is US politics and society more broadly. I asked Ian what might happen if […]

Amy Coney Barrett: just another suburban mom

I heard part of her speech yesterday and by golly, I don’t know what suburban housewives are so worried about. She’s just like you and me (wait, no one would ever describe me as a housewife).

I mean, she has seven kids, two that she and her lawyer professional husband adopted from Haiti. Doesn’t everyone have seven kids? And her husband cooks! He’s a better cook than she is. He’s marvelous, the kind of supportive sensitive new age guy who takes care of the kids while his brilliant wife gets all the help and encouragement she needs to climb the ladder of success in the Federalist Society.

Not only that but for some strange reason (she doesn’t say why), she and her husband are now team teaching at their very own homeschool academy.

Where DOES she find the time? Wow, when I was working full time, taking classes in the evening, and staying up until 2am pouring over school construction plans as an elected board of ed member with a newborn on my lap, I was exhausted. She has seven kids and laughs about not sleeping.

Amy Coney Barrett is the mommy, mommy, Uber Alles!

It doesn’t get more suburbany than Amy, nosirree! She’s just like… well, I don’t know. She certainly puts me to shame.

Don’t worry your pretty little heads, ladies. Amy isn’t going to take your birth control away. You sillies. She just wants you to get husbands like hers. You social progressives are fretting for no reason. Amy enjoys teaching from home. It was all her idea last spring. Did I mention that she can work three 24 hour days at once?

I’m sure she’ll be fine.

By the way, can someone tell me if this is true?:

  1. Maybe TCM could start playing The Stepford Wives and The Handmaid’s Tail 24/7 until the election.

    Let a Democratic president nominate an agnostic for the Supreme Court (please) or a Buddhist, Muslim, Hindu, pagan or even a Morman, and see the Republicans decide that religion (or its lack) can be questioned after all.

    Did you read that her mother Lydia has been a “handmaid” to many unmarried women in POP? Apparently, the handmaid and elders get to decide it you are ready for marriage — or doomed to be forever chaste– and you cannot date until they make that affirmative decision.

    Yeeew!

    But I think the American people deserve to know about what her faith teaches and whether it might affect her rulings. Her opinion on stare decisis (that it can be ignored at will) is horrifying to me.
