It does appear likely that Biden Attorney General nominee Merrick Garland will be confirmed, even though the many questions he tap-danced away from answering raise more red flags than a Chinese military parade.
To cite just one example, Louisiana Republican Sen. John Kennedy asked Garland if he agreed that “allowing biological males to compete in an all-female sport deprives women of the opportunity to participate fully and fairly in sports and is fundamentally unfair to the female athletes.” After loudly exhaling, Garland replied, “This is a very difficult societal question that you’re asking me here.”
(No, it’s a basic biology question about whether males and females are different, and one that most people figure out by the time they’re 13.)
He went on to feign ignorance, even though one of the most controversial issues of the day is whether the Attorney General will enforce the insane policy of forcing schools to let males who claim to identify as females take over girls’ sports. Garland obfuscated onward, saying that “is something that I would have to look at when I have a chance to do that. I have not had the chance to consider these kinds of issues in my career so far, but I agree that this is a difficult question.”
Yes, it is. That’s why it would be nice if you could possibly answer it before we agree to make you Attorney General of the United States.
