This woman who is expected to be appointed to the Supreme Court, Ketanji Brown Jackson, just made an absolute fool of herself for the whole world to see.

Senator Marsha Blackburn asked Jackson a very simple question, “Can you provide a definition for the word, ‘woman’?”

“I can’t,” Jackson responded.

“You can’t?” Blackburn asked. Blackburn seemed to have expected a response that was at least a bit more substantial than that.

“Not in this context. I’m not a biologist,” Jackson said.

And with that follow-up, Jackson had fallen into the senator’s trap.

“The meaning of the word woman is so unclear and controversial that you can’t give me a definition?” Blackburn asked.

“The fact that you can’t give me a straight answer about something as fundamental as what a woman is underscores the dangers of the kind of progressive education that we are hearing about.”

Liberalism has reduced some human beings to perhaps the dumbest group of people that this planet has ever seen.

What is it that for thousands of years, we know what a woman is and now all of a sudden in the last couple of years as liberals try and placate to the mentally disturbed left that someone who is potentially (and probably) going to be appointed to the highest court in the land, whose decisions will impact generations, can’t even answer a question so simple as what a woman is?

Notice that she really does know what a woman is, because what was her response? “I’m not a biologist.” She knows it is a biological trait.

Honestly, I feel like these people in Congress don’t do a good enough job at pushing the point on some things. I feel like they aren’t equipped to ask the right questions sometimes.

Personally, I would have asked her a series of questions like this:

“Are you a woman?”


“How do you know that?”

She would probably say something like, “That’s why I identify myself to be.”

But then, I would push it even harder and ask, “What do you mean when you say you ‘identify’? What does that word mean in your opinion?”

Then she would give her answer as to what that word means and regardless of the response, I would then ask, “So is it merely the case that a woman is someone who [her response of what identify means] as a woman?”

If she says yes, then I would push her on why she appealed to biology and not being a biologist. If she responds no, or still with I don’t know, then I would challenge her on why she is fit to judge other matters when she has demonstrated that she cannot judge such a simple matter as this even though she just defined what it means to identify as a woman.

Maybe I just need to run for Congress so I can ask the questions that need asked.
