A Leftists speaks...Onward for Kagan! Look. This Kagan character is an appopintee by Obama, a sure-fire marxist-sociopath. Can you say hello?
[...] But it is fair to say that nobody has been as blank a slate as Elena Kagan. Although she has been solicitor-general for more than a year, she has never been a judge, so it is impossible to examine her rulings and her reasoning. She has barely written a thing, despite being an obviously brilliant and accomplished legal mind. Liberals worry that she is another wimpy, namby-pamby Democratic nominee and no match for the firebrands of the right that the second Bush appointed. Conservatives worry that she is a stealth leftist, an almost textbook case of a left-liberal marching silently and stealthily through the institutions of American power. But the truth is: none of us outside her circles has a clue.
What we do know is that everyone in America’s legal and constitutional elite — a rarefied world that seems to include Yale, Harvard, Washington and not much else — thinks she’s the bee’s knees. Reading their quotes in the press this past week is like reading academic references for a Rhodes scholarship. Take this classic piece of blather from an icon of the liberal legal establishment, Walter Dellinger: “Her open-mindedness may disappoint some who want a sure liberal vote on almost every issue. Her pragmatism may disappoint those who believe that mechanical logic can decide all cases. And her progressive personal values will not endear her to the hard right. But that is exactly the combination the president was seeking.” [...]
No 'Little-Bitty Matter:' Sessions Says Kagan 'Violated the Law' on Military Recruiting
The Ranking Member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, Senator Jeff Sessions, R-AL, seized on Elena Kagan’s role in prohibiting military recruiting on Harvard's campus during her tenure as the dean of Harvard Law School in an exclusive "This Week" interview and called it “no little-bitty matter.” He insisted that Kagan was not only wrong in her decision, but broke the law. Sessions was joined by Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Senator Patrick Leahy, D-VT, who called the issue “sound and fury signifying nothing.”
The controversy revolves around Kagan’s decision to prohibit military recruiting directly on the law school’s campus because the military’s “Don’t Ask Don’t Tell” policy, prohibiting gays from openly serving in the armed forces, violated Harvard Law School’s anti-discrimination policy. When the Supreme Court ruled that a law tying federal funding of schools to military recruiting was constitutional, Kagan allowed military recruiting on campus on Harvard again so the school wouldn’t lose funding.

Banning books is a good thing for a Nazi to make himself a socialist. Right?
Vote for Kagan. Lose all the Freedoms you could possibly lose. I'll be watching for the Trumpets.
