Senate to confirm Kagan as court's 4th-ever woman (AP Puff Piece Alert)
Associated Press ^ | August 5, 2010 | Julie Hirschfield Davis

Posted on 08/05/2010 5:01:24 AM PDT by Zakeet

Her confirmation assured, Elena Kagan is on the brink of becoming the fourth woman ever to serve as a Supreme Court justice.

The Senate is set Thursday to confirm President Barack Obama's nominee, whose addition to the court will mark the first time three female justices have served concurrently. Nearly all Democrats, the Senate's two independents and a handful of Republicans are backing her.

The vote is to be one of the Senate's last actions before its members depart for a monthlong vacation.

Republicans have harshly criticized Kagan, 50, as a political activist who would be unable to put aside her liberal views and render impartial decisions. Democrats defend the former Harvard Law School dean as a highly qualified legal scholar who could help bring consensus to the polarized court.

She's not expected to alter the ideological balance there as she succeeds retired Justice John Paul Stevens, who is regarded as a leader of the court's liberal wing.

Kagan's nomination to a lifetime seat on the nation's highest court has garnered relatively little notice this summer, with the public and elected officials preoccupied by bad economic news and the Gulf oil spill, and many lawmakers nervously eyeing the November midterm congressional elections.

The A-Pee puff piece had a picture from Getty Images so I substituted more appropriate one which didn't have copyright restrictions.

These clymers in the media continually take chutzpah to record levels. They minimize or ignore anything about the RATS and then proclaim how no one cares or notices.

Kagan has attained one of 0’s goals - a lifetime appointment to a prestigious, highly compensated position, without ever having to prove your competence, only because you’re entitled to it because you are a (fill in the blank).

I could just puke.

the republicans are putting on a faux fight and are not actually fighting this.

Kagan is an insane law professor type. You never want a law professor near anything that affects reality they have no clue.

There are 59 RATS in the Senate. Hitler and Stalin would have received at least 51 votes. I would assume the other 8 would be up for reelection and would have voted no.

Then again, it would have went up with Grahm, Snow and Murray.

Senate to confirm Kagan as court's 4th first-ever woman completely inexperienced, unqualified and unfit Supreme Court Justice.

Good photo Zak! It may be more true than many think.

That truth is revealed here, a great read:

If confirmed, she can be impeached, and there are already grounds for that in her record.

Our greatest hope is that sanity and Constitutionality returns soon to this country, and the Illegal Occupant who was NEVER eligible to hold the Office of the President will be found ineligible, all Laws enacted and Appointments enacted by him are ruled null and void. Removal of two Liberal Activist/Socialists that were appointed to the USSC (Sotomayer and Kagan) are removed as illegal appointees. Otherwise, we have them interfering with Constitutional issues for life.

IF the question of "Natural Born Citizenship" should EVER make its way to the USSC, we have AT LEASt 3 VOTES IN PLACE THERE FROM GINSBURG, KAGAN, AND SOTOMAYER that are self-serving/Socialist-inspired for sure, and the issue will NOT be ruled on the Merits (nor will any other issues they vote on), but rather will be agenda-driven attempts to subvert the Framers' intent, for sure.

We need to target for defeat ALL Senators that vote to confirm this specimen, and make sure they know WHY.

I am FURIOUS about this rubber stamp appointment! Why such concern about another woman on the court?

Why not a NATIVE AMERICAN on the court?

“A Republican filibuster of Elena Kagan would be “an unheard of, dirty thing to do,” Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) said.”

Stopping Kagan has to be the most meritorious reason in Hatch’s 34 years in the Senate to use the filibuster and this is his response. What a turncoat, asinine, mind-numbingly idiotic attitude.

People of Utah, please do the nation a favor and get this guy out of the senate.

Yes, saw that, but not that impressed. SG would have necessarily been party to such suits. However, it does raise the question of whether she's getting payback. Another black mark on an increasingly black record for Zero.

I expect investigations next year, provided Dems lose control of the House and/or Senate.

Keep digging, Pajamhadeen, and they will all fall down.

I honestly think if people keep digging dirt on her, she will have to resign. She has broken the law several times, from what we know so far, and the record keeps looking dirtier the more we hear. Just don’t think a known criminal/activist/pervert can sit on the bench and everybody keep a straight face.

Kagan and Sotomayor would have to recuse themselves from any decision relating to Zero’s eligibility. Kagan, especially, since, according to World Net Daily today, she was named as a co-defendant in several suits about Zero’s eligibility.

Has anyone examined her private parts to determine if she really female? We may have our first transgendered member of the Supreme Court.
