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.

Do you think she is holding his thesis hostage? Just a thought.

Don’t ask, don’t tell.

So fugly, I’d say “don’t even look”!!!

At least Medusa was modestly attractive by comparison.

this is pathetic,

the left , well the far left and their messiah bozo doesn't look at what their qualifications are for this appointment, no they see a lesbian, Jewish liberal woman who worships bozo and that's enough for this position for them

this is frigging unbelievable

she’;s a homosexual activist and cannot be partial or fair in any homosexual cases.

add to the fact she has never even been on the bench

this is sickening and FOR YOU THE GOP, YOU HAD BETTER NOT VOTE FOR HER AT ALL

here is the problem,

As long as Kagan doesn’t mind our male soldiers showering with her, or other lesbian, female partners, going to the bathroom together, and sitting around in the ward room in their underwear,...then it is all cool, and I’m for it.

Until she understands the societal nature of such an arrangement, and truly has no trepidations, she should keep her un-lipsticked mouth shut.

These utopian liberal, wack-jobs have no idea what they are talking about as long as it doesn’t directly and personally affect them.

Then they can go to their little cocktail parties, drink their martinis, and pat themselves on their back after implementing little-understood measures.

But,...as we are learning, elections have consequences and the conservatives have brought this on themselves.

How is it that Fox News is the most watched program over all the network programs and America still elected a raging liberal president? Its because so many were duped in thinking a new dawn was coming, and are now realizing the con.

There seems to be a discrepancy, according to the Drudge Report headline photo, it appears as if actor John Goodman is the new appointee to the Supreme Court.

I always liked him as an actor, he’ll probably do a good job.

I love this little reported gem from Jesse L. Holland of AP:

“It is unlikely that Republicans will try to block her, said Manuel Miranda, chairman of the conservative Third Branch Conference. ...She shouldn’t be filibustered, she won’t be filibustered,” said Miranda, a former Senate staffer who worked on judicial nominations. “Probably no nominee would have been filibustered. The notion of a filibuster is a distraction. The real issue becomes how heavily she’ll be scrutinized and how great an investment in time will Republicans invest. The next level of investment is not a filibuster, but how much effort Republicans will devote to this nomination.”

Seven Republicans have already voted once for Kagan, when her nomination came before the Senate last year to become the solicitor general. That means it’s unlikely they will be able to unify to block her from the Supreme Court.”

hahaha, i’m so glad how instances like this reveal how some

conservatives just roll over. This Miranda guy needs to be fired and forced to sell Gecko food, and those republicans that voted for her before, and still feel compelled to vote for her again just because they voted for her as solicitor general, need to resign and forced to eat pork rinds for the rest of their life.

This country and the so-called conservative movement is pathetic. One day, a new leader was arise and it sure as heck won’t be that retread Romney, so everyone just get off that band-wagon.

Looks Obama establised the “Bull Dike” slot on the supreme court with this pick.

The next white guy that resigns on the court he’ll establish Muslim slot.
