On Thursday the U.S. Senate confirmed Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson to the Supreme Court. It was a historic day, as she became the first Black woman elevated to the highest court in the land.
It was historic for another reason, too. South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham, because he wasn't wearing a tie, had to cast his "no" vote against Jackson from the Senate cloakroom.
It's official. Lindsey Graham was really in the closet.

A recent display of both stupidity and bigotry made national news, and I'm not talking about the Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee.
The owners of a dog named Fezco dumped him at a shelter in Stanly County, N.C. Fezco had humped a male dog, so the owners thought he was gay.
Where to start?
The owners plainly didn't know that mounting is a dominance behavior among dogs. What they did know is they were appalled at the idea of having a homosexual dog.
I'm fighting the impulse to say these people are too stupid to live. Obviously, I just lost the fight.
When ignorance and prejudice combine, humans often get hurt, but in this case the victim was a five-year-old mutt.
With heartworm. It turned out the owners had, apparently, never taken the dog to the vet.
I'll put you out of your misery right now: This tale has a tail-wagging conclusion.
Longtime partners Steve Nichols and John Winn of the greater Charlotte area saw Fezco's story on TV, and promptly adopted him. They renamed him Oscar for—uh huh—Oscar Wilde. Sounds to me like a big gay raspberry blown at the previous owners.
Oscar was immediately scheduled for neutering and heartworm treatment at an animal hospital, but is expected to be in his new home at the end of the week.
"I know it’s silly to think that a dog is gay, but if he wants to be gay as hell, he can be gay here," said Nichols.
One more straight mess cleaned up by gays. I think it's time to start bestowing medals.
