Live from the East Room at the White House! Barack Obama announces his nomination of Solictor General Elena Kagan to the U.S. Supreme Court.
10 a.m. EDT.
Thats no lady, thats Patton Oswalt in drag
Is she a midget?
She sounds totally full of it and herself...
She felt blessed to appear before the Supreme Court but wait - didn’t she get slapped down when she did????
She will help Obama with the gay little people vote!
Don’t ask, don’t tell.
So fugly, I’d say “don’t even look”!!!
At least Medusa was modestly attractive by comparison.
LOL this country sucks.
I’m gonna be sick.
OH my God. She was a total red diaper baby.
Get the HOOK!
As an undergraduate at Princeton, Kagan wrote a senior thesis titled
“To the Final Conflict: Socialism in New York City, 1900-1933.”
In the “Acknowledgments” section of her work, she specifically thanked her brother Marc, whose involvement in radical causes led me to explore the history of American radicalism in the hope of clarifying my own political ideas. In the body of the thesis, Kagan wrote:
“In our own times, a coherent socialist movement is nowhere to be found in the United States. Americans are more likely to speak of a golden past than of a golden future, of capitalisms glories than of socialisms greatness. Conformity overrides dissent; the desire to conserve has overwhelmed the urge to alter. Such a state of affairs cries out for explanation. Why, in a society by no means perfect, has a radical party never attained the status of a major political force? Why, in particular, did the socialist movement never become an alternative to the nations established parties?...
“Through its own internal feuding, then, the SP [Socialist Party] exhausted itself forever and further reduced labor radicalism in New York to the position of marginality and insignificance from which it has never recovered. The story is a sad but also a chastening one for those who, more than half a century after socialisms decline, still wish to change America. Radicals have often succumbed to the devastating bane of sectarianism; it is easier, after all, to fight ones fellows than it is to battle an entrenched and powerful foe. Yet if the history of Local New York shows anything, it is that American radicals cannot afford to become their own worst enemies. In unity lies their only hope.”
Obama already has 80% of the Jewish vote and 55% of the soccer mom vote kabar. He’s not doing it for that reason ... more likely he is doing it to appease the far left wingnut crowd that want more emphasis on gay rights addressed during his first term. THEY are the ones feeling most neglected right now, and THEY were a major player in his fund raising efforts this last time around. He also needs their support badly in the midterms.
The only thing that matters to BO is that she adores HIM. I am really sickened by this administration. God help us.
Aiii! My eyes!
I saw that too, LOL. I wwonder who she’s standing on? She just said she’s going to fill Steven’s seat - suspicions confirmed, it’s a tranny.
Even Ruthie voted against her. Now she wants to kiss Ruthie’s rear end I suppose.
The administration wrote a nice ‘Oprah’ type speech for Kagan to read to introduce her to the American people.
This womyn must be defeated!
