Geeeeez! What a bunch of whiners.

Why not find out who is thinking of voting for Kagan - let everybody know and we’ll phone, fax and email them into re-thinking their stupid decision.

You guys are the wimps .. just sitting around tearing people apart .. good grief!!

Another WTF moment brought to you by the party of “maybe”. Doesn’t McConnell have the testicular fortitude to at least meet with the RINOS and put the wrath of God into them? Kagan is a fookin’ red doper diaper baby who is going to be on the SC for a long time.

These RINO’s feel safe to do what they please. Unless we primary more of them they will never get the message. These are historic times and history will judge these surrender monkey Senate Republicans harshly.

This kind of crap is exactly why I told the RNC a couple days ago to put me on their do-not-call list. This party is in desperate need of new blood because the current bunch is about worthless.

I’m not surprised at all. I have come to expect this from Republicans and would actually be surprised if they actually could be trusted to represent those who put them into office.

Republicans: The “go along to get along” party. The “compromise” party. And finally, the party of self-gratification.

The obozo kiss ass members of the Senate. More Bullshit coming from the faggot Lindsey Graham. what do the voters of SC really feel about the idiotic moron? whom would name a male child Lindsey, that is as bad as calling a female Bradley what names are neutral. the child to born is dressed in a neutral color, the parents do not want to hurt the childs psyche BS. baby boy blue and baby girl pink. now children and adults worried about hurting a childs make up, because of name calling and other political correctness. Screw PC and shove it where the sun does not shine. this is what is wrong men have been emasculated and women have to have the phallic symbol. put a woman in a dress, and a man in pants. PC is running amok.

Not to mention the “bipartisan” party. Any American who still believes in a Constitutional and capitalist America and is still sending money to the GOP is beyond stupid.

My prediction on this one is a 68-32 vote for confirmation. GOPers just simply won’t filibuster a nomination.

Here’s my prediction of who on the GOP side will side with EVERY SINGLE DEM and vote to confirm:

1. McCain
2. Graham
3. Hatch
4. Brown
5. Collins
6. Snowe
7. Cornyn
8. Alexander
9. Voinovich

“Here’s my prediction of who on the GOP side will side with EVERY SINGLE DEM and vote to confirm:

. . . .

8. Alexander”

I'll be very surprised if you are not correct about pantywaist Lamar Alexander. When I e-mailed to him, urging him to vote against confirmation of Sotomayor (the Wide Latina), he e-mailed back his canned response that Senators should give great deference to the SC nominations of a President and should not oppose them merely on the basis of differing political philosophies.

Alexander's natural stance in dealing with liberals is a prostrate position.

There are a number of things that reflect badly on Kagan, but nothing overwhelmingly against her has surfaced. That doesn’t mean that it isn’t there.

What do you expect - Saudi money at work!

Also - as an aside, we don't have to worry about any pesky US oil independence after this “accident” in the Gulf - do we? The United Arab Emirates are safe...

didn't this board cheer the election of Scott Brown? Somehow I remember someone saying this was going to be another RINO and got lampooned that I shouldn't be undermining the monumental acheivement of the RNC taking the Teddy-Seat. But that's just it. It was the RNC (not conservatism) taking the Teddy-Seat. Until conservatives learn how to effectively campaign in blue states, this is what they're going to be stuck with in WA (Rossi), IL (Kirk), DE (Castle), CA (Campbell/Fiorina), IN (Coats), MA (Brown), etc. And let's be clear that being a conservative is simply not enough (sorry Chuck, eastern WA guy, etc). If you can't effectively communicate it, you're useless.

These people will be out of office or corked off but this travesty of a SC Justice will still be squatting on the high bench laying turds of wisdom on the rest of us. Great legacy you RINO cretins.

Honest questions:

What would be the advantage in voting against?

To let the Administration put forth an even more liberal choice? To make the GOP appear to be obstructionists?
