Herb Kohl with Elena Kagan

Supreme Court Nominee Elena Kagan with Senator Herb Kohl (D-WI) /Office of Herb Kohl

I thought long and hard about what I could write in response to this. Other than relating to you the sick feeling in the pit of my stomach, I got nothing.

Instead, here are the names of the five Republican Senators who voted to confirm the judge who never was:

  • Sens. Susan Collins (Maine)
  • Lindsey Graham (S.C.)
  • Judd Gregg (N.H.)
  • Richard Lugar (Ind.)
  • Olympia Snowe (Maine)

Let’s make sure they lose their jobs, please.

Also, both Independents voted to confirm Kagan

  • Joseph Lieberman (CT)
  • Bernie Sanders (VT)

One (1, Uno, Eins) Democrat voted against Kagan.

  • Ben Nelson (Neb)

You can read a bit more about the confirmation here. I don’t have the heart to go into it further.

    Bernie Sanders doesn’t surprise me, he even describes himself as a “democratic socialist” and he has worked with the Democratic caucuses. And Lieberman is a Independent in name only, he a Democrat.

    Collins, Graham, Gregg, Lugar and Snowe are known progressive Republicans.
