Sotomayor, and now Kagan.
The Senate has confirmed Elena Kagan as the 112th justice and fourth woman to serve on the Supreme Court.
The vote was 63-37 for President Barack Obama’s nominee to succeed retired Justice John Paul Stevens.
Five Republicans joined all but one Democrat and the Senate’s two independents to support Kagan. In a rarely practiced ritual reserved for the most historic votes, senators sat at their desks and stood to cast their votes with “ayes” and “nays.”
Kagan isn’t expected to alter the ideological balance of the court, where Stevens was considered a leader of the liberals.
But the two parties clashed over her nomination. Republicans argued that Kagan was a political liberal who would be unable to be impartial. Democrats defended her as a highly qualified legal scholar.
Socialist proclivities are just part of her political makeup. She advocates Sharia Law, she harbors considerable animosity toward the military, she blocked lawsuits filed on behalf of 9/11 families, and she’s got some pretty warped ideas about freedom of speech. The Supreme Court is becoming a collection of stooges.
By the way, 5 Republicans voted for this assclown:
RINOs Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, Susan Collins and Olympia Snowe of Maine, Richard Lugar of Indiana, Judd Gregg of New Hampshire.
Remember that in November.
