Obama To Announce New Supreme Court Pick Monday

And the buzz in DC-land is that it will be Solicitor General Elena Kagan. She female, relatively young at 50, an old pal of Zero's and Bill Ayers' from Chicago and Harvard and lacks any practical legal experience whatsoever, so she'll fit right in. From my previous description:

"lessee...the ex-Dean of Harvard Law school is a career academic and the current Solicitor General. She's never served as a judge or even argued a case in front of an appellate court, so she has zero practical experience.

However, she's female, which checks one of Obama's boxes. And she does have the right political views. She called President Clinton's “don’t ask; don’t tell” policy “a profound wrong — a moral injustice of the first order,” which should give you a clue on how she'd vote on gay marriage. And she seems to have never heard of the Solomon Amendment, claiming that it somehow violates the First Amendment for the US to withhold funds from colleges that ban the military from recruiting on campus. That piece of legal reasoning was unanimously rejected by the entire Supreme Court.

Even better from Obama's point of view, she favors greatly enhanced presidential control over the Federal government, which is right up BOH's alley considering his unprecedented consolidation of power in the White House."

Kagan was the first female law school dean at Harvard. While she was a dean, she eliminated grades and required students to do pro bono work (translation: staff various lefty interest group projects at the law school). And she's also an ex-Clintonista. From 1995 to 1999, Kagan served as President Bill Clinton's Associate White House Counsel and Deputy Assistant to the President for Domestic Policy, an administrative position, not a legal one.

Old pal of Obama's from Chi-town and Harvard, academic with no practical experience, reliably 'progressive' lefty views...yes, that about covers it.

please helps me write more gooder!

The perfect candidate would be a black lesbian transgender Muslim Palestinian communist married to an illegal immigrant. Practical legal experience? Not important.
