Please, not another tired old Yankee-Red Sox joke...

You’d think he’d learn to stay away from baseball given his previous flubs... (mom jeans, throwing like a girl, not knowing any White Sox players)

Not a single republican should vote for this... I predict at least 15 rino senators cave in and vote yes.

"Her résumé lacks the one qualification that every member of the current Supreme Court possesses: past judicial service. It has been almost 40 years since a nominee who had not been a judge was appointed to the Supreme Court; the last two were William H. Rehnquist and Lewis F. Powell Jr., both of whom joined the court in 1972.

Kagan was a paid member of an advisory panel for the embattled investment firm Goldman Sachs, federal financial disclosures show. Kagan was a member of the Research Advisory Council of the Goldman Sachs Global Markets Institute, according to the financial disclosures she filed when President Obama appointed her last year to her current post. Kagan served on the Goldman panel from 2005 through 2008, when she was dean of Harvard Law School, and received a $10,000 stipend for her service in 2008, her disclosure forms show.

The advisory panel met once a year to discuss public policy issues and was not involved in any investment decisions, Justice Department spokeswoman Tracy Schmaler said. Still, if Kagan is nominated to replace Stevens, senators will scrutinize those ties to Goldman Sachs, said Northwestern University law professor Lee Epstein.

Many liberal critics are unhappy with Kagan's arguments as solicitor general supporting the "state secrets" doctrine, detentions without trial, and other broad Obama claims of executive power to fight terrorism -- some of them similar to the Bush policies that liberals oppose.

Yes and why I listened every Wednesday at Noon to the air raid sirens blasting from Boeing’s in my youth. Or being forced to hurry in to a Civil Defense Shelter with my head down in a dark room wondering “if this was the end this time.” Send all the gay people to Siberia please.
