Welcome to IWETHEY!

New I say this as an atheist...
That's a "Don't throw me in that briar patch" comment. She (and the Republican party) WANTS the Democrats to make it about religion. Cornyn came out fearmongering about "secular cultural elites" - he'd love one of the Democrats to say something about her religion so they can play it up on FOX News and OAN.

Face it, us atheists are really unliked. I saw something a bit back about how parents ranked people from different religions and ethnic backgrounds as a preferred mate for their children, and atheists were at the absolute bottom. I think the second lowest was African-American Muslims. Sucks, but that's the way it rolls until people abandon religion en masse.
New I don't know what I'm worried about.
Five of the last six Supreme Court Justice nominees have been Catholic. I don't know what I'm worried about. Remember how well the Catholics did with the Crusades and the Spanish Inquisition? Or look at the history of California with all the "education" of the native folk and building of missions. Or look at the purity of the early popes. Yeah, nothing to worry about. Catholics know all about justice.

I used to have an imaginary friend, too. But then I turned five and got over it.

It's mourning in America again.
New Exactly
Best approach for the Dems is to ask questions around the consequences of the decisions everyone is assuming she will make:

- What will be the effect of removing coverage for pre-existing conditions? Will all protection be removed?
- States will be able to criminalize abortion?
- What happens to married same-sex couples?

More here from Jennifer Rubin:
Welcome to Rivendell, Mr. Anderson.
New Yes, that
Don't ask how she'll rule. All her to explain the impact of the rulings you assume she'd make.

New Re: Yes, that
She will respond "My responsibility is to make rulings that are in line with the constitution, and not to legislate from the bench." or some such nonsense and ignore the question.
New [sigh] I know you're right
My naive hope is that she could be a True Believer who is proud of her positions, or at least cares about how she's viewed by other True Believers.

But then I remember that there are major religions that teach that it's no sin to lie to non-believers.

New I just always assume my opponent will do the worst thing for me.
That way when they fuck up I'm pleasantly surprised.
New Raise the Federalist Society?
That should put the lie to not legislating from the bench given the whole set of "corporations are people" decisions and other work to implement the Heritage Foundation's utopia.
New Excellent! ..pity that zIWE isn't on most Pols' daily must-See-list: the fuels! [Insp. Clouseau OFF]
New Thus far you (mostly) have gotten that approach (my Hopes too)
Simultaneously, the [Pit and the Pendulum--Poe] is the damnable Black/Whitey and other set-in-concrete
dichotomies which got us where we Be..
