There’s really not much to say here. We put a person on the Supreme Court that does not respect the United States Constitution. She danced around the issues during her confirmation hearing, but now that she’s been confirmed for life, she can do whatever the hell she wants, just like Sonia Sotomayor did after she lied about supporting the Second Amendment. All we had to do was look at Kagan’s history (not her judicial history, since she doesn’t have one) to understand that this was another appointee that counted herself among the extreme left.
This is a case of cowardice by the Senate Republicans. They only hold their oath to protect and defend the US Constitution as far as it is politically expedient. Giving the president “deference” is apparently more important than protecting the US Constitution, or anything else for that matter. If only Democrats felt the same way.
We should be focused on what this means for the integrity of the US Constitution, but instead all the media can talk about how “historic” it is that another person with a uterus gets to serve on the Supreme Court. Why weren’t they as concerned with history when Clarance Thomas was appointed, or when Sarah Palin was nominated? Conservatives don’t paint by color or gender. The left does.
