There Are No Protestants on the Supreme Court -- A Simple Solution

Far be it from me to complain about Dean Kagan's nomination to the Supreme Court -- a Jewish weight-challenged Harvard lawyer from New York. Sounds like a good demographic to me.

But I feel the pain from those of you who cannot believe that a country founded by Protestants will have a Supreme Court with the same number of Protestant Justices, justices with military backgrounds, and justices from Asian-Americans backgrounds -- none.

(Are there any justices right now who ever -- like -- ran for office?)

But I have a solution.

There is a Democratic President and 59 Democratic Senators.

Why not try a little court packing?

6 additional justices -- all appointed by Obama and pushed through the Senate by Chuck Schumer.

If you can dream it, you can do it.
