For Jews, who represent about 2 percent of the population, holding 44 percent of the seats on the court might be a point of pride.
Garland is now chief judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit.
If he is confirmed, the Supreme Court would have five Catholic justices (Chief Justice John Roberts and Associate Justices Thomas, Anthony Kennedy, Samuel Alito and Sonia Sotomayor) and four Jews (Garland and Associate Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Elena Kagan and Stephen Breyer).
A nation were the 1% or the 2% have a stranglehold over politics, over the entrainment industry, over the military, over the unintelligence agencies, over the mass media and then still claim they have no power and it is all a conspiracy against them and that they are being discriminated was something sane people would have laughed at, but not the the Republik of America.
Ignorance was bliss in the last days of the Republic of America as it descended head first into 40 years of tyranny of its own making and with their own willing permission, participation, acquiescence and doing.
