Neomi Rao is in one, now that she’s a nominee for the DC Circuit Court. She’s currently serving as the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs Administer, which means she’s already been vetted by the Senate—bipartisanly. The Senate already knows who she is and what her abilities and qualifications are.
Well, never mind. It seems, according to BuzzFeed—you remember the purveyors of a Cohen false news story so dishonest that even Mueller had to go public with the BS flag—Rao “wrote inflammatory op-eds in college.” The horror.
Here’s an example of that inflammatory writing:
It has always seemed self-evident to me that even if I drank a lot, I would still be responsible for my actions. A man who rapes a drunk girl should be prosecuted. At the same time, a good way to avoid a potential date rape is to stay reasonably sober.
Victim blaming? Rational people wouldn’t think so, but….
The Progressive-Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee actually are taking Buzzfeed seriously. The idiocy.
As The Wall Street Journal put it in their editorial at the first link above, none of that
is relevant to how she might rule as a 45-year-old judge with adult life experience.
The WSJ misunderstands, though. Rao’s not the life experience of a wise Latina, so it’s irrelevant. The intervening years don’t exist.
And that’s a tool wielded by those Progressive-Democrats and their NLMSM arm in their efforts to smear another conservative jurist.
