"Whites Only" is still in existence, kept nicely under the blankets, like a ripe pimple ready to burst.

radio god Ron Bennington's take on the nomination

"if she makes it, it means we will have a Supreme Court made up entirely of Catholics and Jews, or as i like to call them, smart people, finally 9 Catholics and Jews putting Protestants in their place"

Radio Hall of Fame winner Neal Boortz has commented on Obama's choice.

ELECTIONS HAVE CONSEQUENCES

Quote:
... her appointment would mean the first time in history that the
Supreme Court had three female justices - though it won't be all that obvious.

@hawkeye10,
Too late. We already have at least two Justices who dont belong on the court.

What's the thought process behind picking a supreme court justice without any judicial experience? Is there an argument for that?

@CarbonSystem,
Let's not be hasty. Chief Justice Earl Warren did not have any experience as a judge before being nominated into the Supreme Court. There are others as well so this isn't either a precedent or a bad move on President Obama's part.

Why are people talking about how attractive/unattractive she is? I can't think of anything more typical or wrong about American domestic politics.

because good looks is associated with intelligence. People assume that those gifted with good genetics for visible physical traits are also gifted with good genetics of the brain.

What we have is a person whose career has dovetailed with the incentives presented by the confirmation system, a system that punishes creativity and rewards caginess. Arguments are already being made for and against her nomination, but most of this is speculation because she has been too careful to let her actual positions leak out.

There’s about to be a backlash against the Ivy League lock on the court. I have to confess my first impression of Kagan is a lot like my first impression of many Organization Kids. She seems to be smart, impressive and honest " and in her willingness to suppress so much of her mind for the sake of her career, kind of disturbing.

Yep, and show me a society the punishes creativity and willingness to fight for something and I will show you a dying society. That Obama, a smart fellow, thinks that kagan is the perfect pick demonstrates how much trouble we are in.

from twitter

If Elena Kagan is a closeted homosexual then maybe liberal fears that she's actually a Republican are well founded.

bashing people stupid enough to put themselves in the public eye is great

can't wait for the elections, republicans, democrats, independents all fair and unbalanced game

@failures art,
I tried to find the Monte Python skit in which Eric Idle and one other Python (can not remember which) are gay judges who discuss what they wear under their robes.
