    So, Is Sessions right? Is Kagen really nothing more than a mirror of Obama's ideological, and purely political appointment? She will serve for decades, will her vote be constitutionally based, or will she vote strictly along "Progressive" lines? And doesn't the sitting President have the right to appoint anyone he wants?

    Now Sessions comes off sounding like a moron as nothing in her testimony and/or record supports that.

    Someone should remind dummy Sessions that Scalia said she would make a great addition to the court.

    What an idiot.

    I think he is referring to this: Justice Scalia: Kagan's lack of judicial experience no bar to Supreme Court

    Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan's lack of judicial experience got a high-profile defense Wednesday night from a prospective colleague: Justice Antonin Scalia.

    Scalia said the court would benefit from having someone who has not been a judge.

    "Currently, there is nobody on the court who has not served as a judge -- indeed, as a federal judge -- all nine of us," he told an audience at the Ceremonial Courtroom at the U.S. Courthouse in Washington. " . . . I am happy to see that this latest nominee is not a federal judge -- and not a judge at all."

    Realize that Scalia and Kagan are also friends to an extent.

    Oh, I don't doubt it...Intellectuals always seem to befriend those with opposing views...Makes for stimulating conversation. Still, I see him endorsing the concept of someone that has never been a judge being nominated more so than he is saying she should be one....

    Yes, this is true. I think he made a more glowing recommendation somewhere, I seem to remember it, but I cannot find it. The link in the article I linked does not work either, which had more on Scalia talking about Kagan.

    That's ok. It doesn't matter if he came out and said she was the smartest woman in the world, it still doesn't mean that he doesn't also think that her particular philosophy judicially would be a danger to this country's constitution.

    See, hazelnut tried as he always does, to make a disingenuous point to stamp down any opposition, and also as usual the quotes he is using, which are never provided right off I might add, are never quite what was actually said.

    This is why often I don't even respond.
