Governor names first openly gay, Asian American to state’s high court

Gov. Jay Inslee has appointed King County Superior Court Judge Mary Yu to the Washington state Supreme Court. Appointed as a judge in 2000 by then-Gov. Gary Locke, Yu will be the first openly gay justice, and the first Asian American, on the state’s high court.

Just what we need. In this state where gay 'marriage' is already legal and the mayor of Seattle is a married homosexual. Inslee is openly influenced by the devil.

The eastern side of the state where I live did not vote for any of this.

Arlene’s Flowers (you may recall the story) is just down the road from me.

Oh gawd. Look where this lesbian justice came from.

Before coming to Washington state, she worked for the Archdiocese of Chicago, first as an associate and later as the director of the Peace and Social Justice Office for the Archdiocese of Chicago.

I am so tired of that term.

Why don’t they just come out and say Forced Redistribution of Wealth.

The original Catholic meaning of that term has nothing to do with “Forced Redistribution of Wealth”.

I had no idea Conservative Justice James Johnson was ill and resigned.

And Mary Yu will replace him?

I assumed political tradition required the Governor to at least try to fill the seat with someone who has the same legal philosophy as the outgoing judge.

Although I am not a spiritual person, I have always believed that the Evangelical Right is the foundation of the American Conservative tradition.

This is premeditated, in-your-face, political taunting from Inslee to Conservatives.

Inslee is a happy idiot. We had a good candidate in Rob McKenna - well, as good as you can get in the PRWS - and he would have been the first Republican governor elected since 1980. But no, we elect a do-nothing congressman to come back home and be a do-nothing governor for as long he wants the job, I presume.

Sad thing is, he’s a malignant happy idiot who is also a coward.

But, he’s progressive, so the masses love him.

You mean the first elected since 2004, since the WA Dems pretty much openly stole the race from winner Dino Rossi.

Because that doesn't quite capture the flavor of group vengeance.

If those people can be given a job because of Gay, they can be fired for Gay.

I guess you’re right.

Presentation is everything when you’re talking about convincing the uneducated, low information voter to swing his vote you’re way.

No, no, no.

They are given jobs because they are homosexual. BUT, the job is also secure, no matter how poorly they execute it. You can’t fire a homosexual or you’ll have a lawsuit on your hands for firing them because of their “sexual orientation”....another made-up phrase.

Enough of this fascination with “identity” politics, where people are cast in an officially certified victim group, or are classified as the White Oppressors.

Since we’re into achieving firsts...

How about appointing the first open polygamist or paedophile to something?

There’ve been previous openly gay, Asian Americans. Sulu, for instance. (Poorly written headline alert.)

Wow! Triple diversity points for this one.

Female? Check.
Lesbian? Check.
Asian? Check.

Definitely qualified for the Supreme Court.

You are right, of course. Keep on counting until you get the results you want seems to be the new “progressive” way of running free elections.

Indeed, it is very sad. But how fortunate my family feels to live across a mountain range from most of this depravity, in a flyover-type place where families and God are still paramount at time of this writing. Actual two-parent homes in many cases, signups for VBS already, baseball and softball games, Washington apples. My family headed to a college fastpitch tournament later today.

I like the picture you paint. There are a lot of places (still) where humans are human and life is good.
