GOP on Kagan: She Had the Gall to Quote Thurgood Marshall

Comments

Did her quotation even imply that she believed such or did she simply...quote him?

Anyway, the congress should be the first to admit the constitution isn't perfect...wait no, that would be the "founding fathers" since they gave congress the ability to change the constitution.

Kagan would really be in trouble if she quoted what Jesus said in Matthew 19:4.

"And again I say unto you, It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God."

@1: And they kinda sorta changed it themselves immediately.

"Staver recalls an incident while Kagan headed Harvard Law School when she barred the ROTC from the campus because of military policies on homosexuals. He says Kagan has tried to be quiet about the issue of abortion, but has been very vocal on the issue of homosexuality."

if that's true, we're going to be hearing about it.

Republicans still think Justice Marshall was an uppity black man. Just not in those exact words.

Yes, how dare Kagan quote Thurgood Marshall!? It's not as if she was one of his clerks or something...

...Oh. Wait.

Shit.

She has more to worry about from the Left than the Right.

I titter with joy whenever I re-read the Constitution, but we seriously need to stop deifying the founding fathers. Three-fifths was a compromise?

@1: Agreed, but the reasoning for using this tactic to go after her is sound. If you want to pump up your base to hate her, say she's a nondogmatist who doesn't believe historical documents were created inerrant. That really pisses the evangelical right off like nothing else.

“Does Kagan Still View Constitution ‘As Originally Drafted And Conceived’ As ‘Defective’?”


Jesus Christ. Fuck them. Because black people ain't shit, amirite?

And, the Constitution as originally drafted and conceived didn't even include the Bill of Rights, which is of course what conservatives would prefer.

Defective? Hmm, the Confederate (i.e., currently Republican) States somehow found the Constitution defective, since they seceded from the Union. 600,000 Americans died in the bloodiest war in our history less than 70 years after the ratification of the Constitution, but it wasn't defective? Holy crap, Republicans are stupid.

Those who are despised, rejected, people of sorrow and acquainted with grief. Show no special solicitude to them. It wouldn't be Christian.
13
and people care what Republicans have to say about the selection, because... why?
14
Well, defective enough that the congress has amended it 27 times. But who's counting?
15
congress does not amend the constitution - they may, and have, proposed amendments to the constitution - but the constitution is amended when 3/4 of the several states amend it, by various ratification proceedings at the level of the state legislature and usually requiring supermajorities
