Tanden is amply qualified for the job. She is not accused of failing to pay her taxes or hiring an undocumented household worker. She is not on the ideological fringes. There has been no scandal in her personal life.

Her supposedly unpardonable sin is . . . incivility. Specifically, she used intemperate language on Twitter.

Of course, no GOP member ever used intemperate language. Oh. wait…

The other sin, of course, is that she is a woman-of-color and a Democrat.
