Elena Kagan was confirmed yesterday. Since she is replacing another liberal I cannot get too worked up over it. Conservatives need to save the big fight in case a conservative justice must be replaced during Obama’s presidency.
The usual RINO suspects voted to confirm Kagan.
Only five Republicans voted in favor of Kagan’s nomination. Last year, just nine Republicans voted for Justice Sonia Sotomayor, Obama’s first Supreme Court appointee.
Today’s yes votes included Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., the lone Republican on the Senate Judiciary Committee to support Kagan when the panel recommended the nomination to the full Senate on a 13-6 vote. Other GOP yes votes came from Richard Lugar of Indiana, Olympia Snowe and Susan Collins of Maine, and Judd Gregg of New Hampshire.
Sen. Scott Brown, R-Mass, one of Kagan’s home state senators, voted against her.
It would be wise for conservatives to start putting pressure on these RINOs now, so that in the event a major appointment battle comes, these bone heads won’t capitulate like they always do.
