Elena Kagan confirmed by the US Senate

Posted by Knitebane

Fox News reports that the US Senate has voted 63-37 along a largely party-line vote to make Elena Kagan the next US Supreme Court justice. She will be replacing Justice Paul Stevens, another demented idiot, and continue his work of inventing invisible passages in the Constitution.

Because of Steven's far-left ideology, Kagan's presence on the court is not expected to alter the current balance.

It may, however, alter the careers of five Republican senators that bent crossed over to vote for the far-left-wing-ideologue-with-no-judicial-experience.

Senators Susan Collins and Olympia Snowe of Maine, Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, Dick Lugar of Indiana and Judd Gregg of New Hampshire all signaled that they either plan to retire before they are up for election again or that they've been smoking crack. Have they not noticed that conservatism is on the upswing? And that we don't have much use for the mushy middle? Have they not noticed that 2008's Republican nominee for president is currently having to fight a primary battle? Idiots.

It was something of a surprise that after his disgraceful flip-flopping during the Obamacare disaster and the Cornhusker Kickback scandal that DemonRat Senator Ben Nelson of Nebraska voted against Kagan. I guess he hopes that Nebraskans are stupid and have short memories. Don't worry Ben, we'll remind them!

The biggest surprise coming out of the vote is that Senator Scott Brown of Massachusetts remembered who brung him to the dance and voted against Ellie the Red. Thanks Scott! Keep up the good work!

There never was much hope of defeating Kagan but that's no excuse for voting for the least qualified person to be nominated in 100 years.
