An interesting article. Thank you. I myself am a liberal, a feminist, an advocate for LGBTQ rights, an advocate for reproductive rights, but I wanted to thank you for rightly calling to task much of the extreme ugliness that can bubble up amongst my fellow liberals ("clown-car vagina" being one of the single most offensive utterances I have ever heard). And at this point I can hardly bear to watch or read any news on these hearings anymore, as I am so very tired of all the political gamesmenship on both sides. I just wanted to thank you for voicing thoughts and ideas and information with reasonableness, intelligence, and above all, being willing to point out the one overriding issue of concern in reality being the lack of fair-play in this nomination being rushed through at midnight.

Surrounded by a cacophony of overblown partisan hysteria (and rudeness, for that matter), it was nice for a change to read a calmly written and informative article about this woman who will soon step into RBG's shoes.
