Elena Kagan for Supreme Court Justice?

Good morning, Netizens…

Thank God we have gotten David Horsey back from his vacation in time to shine his creative cartoon flashlight on the the nomination of Elena Kagan for Supreme Court Justice. Some members of the Republican Party, according to Horsey’s cartoon this morning, may have called Kagan a witch. However, that may be the least of the problem.

Other groups, some of whom are on the fringe of political thought, even have laid the allegation that Kagan is a lesbian. However, no one has truly stepped forward to take credit for such a preposterous statement.

So long as one bases their opinions upon the facts of Kagan’s past history. President to two distinguished law schools, Solicitor General, to name just a few of the notable positions Kagan has held, we might be safe. As some of the detractors have stated, however, Kagan has never been a judge. However, don’t let that tie your panties in knots, cherubs. If you look back in the history of the Supreme Court, particularly at Judge Renquist, you will see others have already set that precedent.

Is it possible that those potentially in charge of deciding Kagan’s future at the Supreme Court are playing politics with Kagan, striking out at President Obama’s political beliefs? Say it isn’t so!

A lot of political commentators are suggesting that Kagan will probably be ratified as the next member of the Supreme Court, but will the public be aware of all the facts? That remains to be seen.
