Here is what I have learned today from conservatives about the proper characteristics of a Supreme Court Justice:
It is necessary that the a Supreme Court Justice have no empathy, or feelings of any kind.
It is necessary that a Supreme Court Justice have no gender, ethnicity, or identity of any kind.
It is necessary that a Supreme Court Justice have no views on right or wrong of any kind, and only "follow the law."
Given these characteristics, unless I am hearing conservatives wrong, what we really need are robots on the Supreme Court.
After all, while all humans have feelings, cultural identities, and conceptions of right and wrong, robots don't. All we have to do is program them to "follow the law," and they can make the decisions with absolute objectivity.
As someone who has long believed that humans are inferior and need to be replaced with robots (yeah, I'll be an informer during the Artificial Intelligence apocalypse) I'm down with this, btw. When will you humans learn that your "feelings," "identities" and "ethics" keep you from following the law, anyway?
