Why Shouldn't President Biden Appoint Me to SCOTUS When Clarence Thomas retires?

After all, Trump just nominated and Moscow Mitch's Senate just confirmed Kathryn Kimball Mizelle, 33, to a lifetime appointment on U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Florida.

Yeah, I know... it's FLORIDA.

But, still, the American Bar Association previously deemed Mizelle, “Not Qualified” for a federal judgeship.

Mizelle has never "tried a case, civil or criminal, as lead or co-counsel" since passing the bar.

Could it be Republicans confirmed her because she is a member of the Federalist Society?

All three of Trump's SCOTUS picks are: Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh and Amy Coney Barrett.

Or is it because Mizelle called Clarence Thomas "the greatest living American"?

I'm tempted to make a joke about what you your rulings would be in spanking or public nudity related cases here but that would probably get me in too much trouble when you do get appointed.... 🤐

But seriously, she has No courtroom experience? That is insane! Although, considering some of Trumps moves of late, maybe not that insane!

🤬

Given that in today's climate...



... my rulings would be to uphold most anti-spanking laws when minors are concerned and liberalize public nudity.

The government has no business requiring or condoning school officials to spank minors.

And upholding as legal the spanking of an 18-year old girl (as was done in one case) simply because she is attending high school (as required by law) and therefore has to obey the school rules or be spanked (in this case it was by a male, too) is an outrage.

If your resume compares to this, I think you have a legitimate argument.

Kathryn Kimball Mizelle earned her Bachelor of Arts, summa cum laude, from Covenant College in 2009. She earned her Juris Doctor, summa cum laude, from the University of Florida Levin College of Law in 2012.

Upon graduating from law school, Mizelle served as a law clerk to Judge James S. Moody Jr. of the United States District Court for the Middle District of Florida and to Judge William H. Pryor Jr. of the United States Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit. She worked as a trial attorney in the Tax Division of the United States Department of Justice from 2014–2017, and was detailed as a Special Assistant United States Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia from 2014–2015. Mizelle was Counsel to the United States Associate Attorney General from 2017–2018. In 2018, she briefly clerked for Judge Gregory G. Katsas of the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit, and then clerked for Associate Justice Clarence Thomas of the Supreme Court of the United States. Mizelle is currently an adjunct professor at the University of Florida Levin College of Law. She has been a member of the Federalist Society since 2012.

Before becoming a judge, Mizelle was an associate at Jones Day. There she worked on civil and criminal litigation and appeals.

Ohhh! Wow! What did she major in at Covenant College?

I think she was thinking about biology before settling in economics. But, who knows. She may very well be quite intelligent. And maybe shuffling papers around in judicial offices for half a decade may have given her some sort of glimpse into how government works.

But if you think clerking a few years here and there matches up to the experience of current Supremes - pre-Trump - go for it.

You Trumpets like to sneer and roll your eyes at the so-called liberal educated elite.

But I've read and studied the U.S. Constitution as well. And, unlike Trump, I understand it.

Is it true that they will often share a can of Coke together and discuss vintage movies?

Not even the first one they've crammed through with zero trial experience.
