Mark Halperin: Oh Noes, A Woman Might Get the Job!

You know what is so offensive? Those damn P.C. police pressuring the president to place a second woman on the Supreme Court. You know, because it's not embarrassing or anything that although 51 percent of the population is female, only 11 percent of the Court is. And it's not like the Court routinely makes decisions that affect women's health and very autonomy! No, siree. Let's get a white dude in there!

To be serious for a moment, we should expect a whole lot more of this as the nomination process gets underway. But since there are so many eminently qualified women of all races, I have to assume that anybody who makes this complaint is really just, in their heart of hearts, offended by diversity and equality in representation.
