He looks pretty good, at least on paper. He demonstrated a humble, likable demeanor during the announcement ceremony at the White House. A brief internet search did not reveal his denominational affiliation; but he made brief reference to his "faith" during his oral statement.
It is good that he has not arisen from the bicoastal cosmopolitan elites that have nearly wrecked this country. He is from the nation's interior.
He is described both as a textualist and an originalist. This means he is at risk of facing particularly vicious opposition among the democratic socialists in the United States Senate.
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer was observed crying Sunday ostensibly over President Trump's executive order on refugees and immigration. The Gorsuch nomination also will make him quite unhappy. Is his bereavement truly over what is happening to his dear, beloved country?
Of course not. The corrupted worldview of contemporary Judaism, to which he adheres, has had an extraordinary level of primacy in the American public square for a very long time. But now, Schumer is aggrieved because that worldview (indeed, that agenda) is at risk of being dethroned-- as it should be. More about that later.
If the past is any indication, Schumer need not worry. The Republicans have a knack for pulling defeat from the jaws of victory... presuming, of course, that they truly want a conservative, constitutional framework to prevail. That is a big presumption.
Addendum: A reader points out that his denominational affiliation is Episcopal. That could be an issue. He would be the first Protestant on the high court in quite a while. The court now has five Catholic (at least nominally) and three Jewish judges.
