Senate Confirms Elena Kagan as 112th Supreme Court Justice
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.
