John Paul Stevens did Barack Obama and Harry Reid no favor by announcing his intention to retire now. There are a number of maneuvers he could have employed to coast out. He could’ve achieved his aim of reducing his workload and still given Senate Democrats a chance to slither away from Elena Kagan’s confirmation hearings. Now those hearings will be damaging reminders of Democrat plans to socialize America.
Elena Kagan is she or not? Does it matter?
Kagan is as doctrinaire anti military pro abortion liberal as Stevens, but she is 40 years younger. So these factors make her an awful choice, but a closer look shows her selection has a bright side. Kagan will be a problem for the already sagging Democrats and her liberalism will be little consolation for them in November.
Kagan whose countenance screams “lesbian” in a manly voice is a Manhattan liberal that will repel Middle Americans who will see her nomination as another finger in the eye from a Marxist president who cares little about real America.
Kagan has a long history of involvement with the Gay and Lesbian community. She is a staunch opponent of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell and as its Law School Dean has urged Harvard students to demonstrate against the policy. She has maintained close ties with Lambda a gay organization and has addressed its members as the main speaker.
A recent New York Times forum had a comment alleging Kagan’s lesbianism was “no secret on the Harvard campus and she has a female “[life] partner.”” The anonymous writer saw these things as a plus. Frankly it is hard to argue with that assessment.
Kagan’s confirmation hearings could turn into a firestorm that eats what is left of the Democrats chances to hold on in November. Kagan’s nomination is the best we could make of the certainty of another liberal being placed on the Court. This is a poke in the eye to middle America Obama et al may very well come to regret making.
