commentary on Politics and a little bit of everything else

The Kagan Supreme Court watch……..

The Dog believes that Solicitor General Elena Kagan is the front-runner for the soon to be vacated Stephens spot on the Supreme Court…..

I also believe …as I have said here that the spot is her’s to lose ….with Obama going thru the motions…but interested in her…

I could be wrong…But the Dog correctly picked Judge Sotomayor as Obama’s first choice…..

Here’s ole’ Arlen Spector’s comments ona Kagan nomination to the court….



Sen. Arlen Specter (D-Pa.) said Wednesday he’d take a “fresh look” at Solicitor General Elena Kagan if she’s nominated to the Supreme Court.

Specter, who, as a Republican, had voted against Kagan’s confirmation to become solicitor general, said he would re-evaluate Kagan if President Barack Obama picks her to fill the vacancy on the Supreme Court.

“Supreme Court nominations are a little different from solicitor general,” Specter said during an appearance on MSNBC. “I have an open mind.”

The senior member of the Judiciary Committee has pivoted on some issues since having switched parties to pursue reelection as a Democrat, a reelection battle in which he’s facing a liberal primary challenge from Rep. Joe Sestak (D-Pa.).

To that end, Specter expressed some regret for having supported and helped shepherd now-Chief Justice John Roberts through his Senate confirmation.

  4. Kagan? Axelrod and Emanuel are sticking another Jew into the Supreme Court. Chomsky is right – we are becoming Weimar Germany, and that’s going to end in another disaster for the Jews, perhaps even the last one. They never learn, do they!
