Republicans--The White Man's Party

If you are going to be the White Man's Party, as the Republicans more surely are, you might as well go all the way and attack Thurgood Marshall when Marshall's son is in attendance:

Ranking member Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) criticized Kagan for having "associated herself with well-known activist judges who have used their power to redefine the meaning of our constitution and have the result of advancing that judge's preferred social policies," citing Marshall as his son, Thurgood Marshall Jr., sat in the audience of the Judiciary Committee hearings.


And when does the idea that Democrats are the activist judges end, particularly given the Roberts court vastly remaking the law? I suspect this is happening, but good god.
