Confirmed!
I'm a little disappointed that no more Republicans voted for her. After all the talk that Republicans are mature and only Dems are babies in Supreme Court nominations, the failure for her to get any more than 3 R votes disappoints me.

For what it's worth, It is better than the Dems did under Trump 2 of 3 nominations and equal to the other.

The Republicans can still say that they did not engage in the shenanigans that Dems did against Bork, Thomas, and Kavanaugh, but I think after all the talk of maturity, they could've voted for Brown Jackson. Especially since some of them already voted for her on the Appeals level.

Could haunt them in elections against a future republican challenger. Especially if she votes pro a liberal law.

I don't think those were so dirty, just a lot of politics.

I'm assuming that is why they didn't vote for her.

So in truth, it's really a referendum on us as a country. That WE are not mature enough to vote for someone who is mature.

Not voting for someone because of politics can be excused. Withholding a letter calling them a r***ist until right before the vote is dirty.

The Washington Post: Republicans praise Jackson then vote against her Supreme Court nomination.

What, in your opinion, should senators take into account when deciding whether to consent to a SCOTUS nomination?

That's a debatable question. But since senators have lauded the times when RBG and others were confirmed overwhelmingly, obviously they think being a liberal is not a reason enough to vote against someone.
