Cornyn Brings The Stupid

John Cornyn, when asked if he would vote for a gay nominee to the Supreme Court, answered, “I’d have to think about that,” he said. “As long as it doesn’t interfere with their job, it’s not a particular issue.”

I'm just wondering how being gay would interfere with the job of the judge.

Of course, given that Cornyn's opinion that a Supreme Court judge should agree with all of his own policy agenda, clearly being gay would get in the way for such a judge. Since Cornyn wants a constitutional amendment to ban gay marriage, I guess it would be OK for a judge to be gay if the judge was both in the closet and self-hating. Just the kind of gay person John Cornyn likes.
