Just A Note - Sonia SotoMayor Lied During Her Senate Confirmation Hearings

As we go through the Kagan circus, it's worth noting that people out of the mainstream and on the far Left have no problem fibbin' to make themselves seem more centrist when it comes to getting that life time job..

Here's the Wise Latina on the Second Amendment case during her confirmation hearings on DC vs. Heller which declared unconstitutional the ban on firearms in Washington DC and recognized individual gun rights:

I understand the individual right fully that the Supreme Court recognized in Heller.

Ah, but she's got the job now. So, let's see how the Wise Latina justified voting against the recent 5-4 McDonald vs. Chicago decision, which used Heller as a precedent and simply extended that decision to make state-level gun bans unconstitutional:

In sum, the Framers did not write the Second Amendment in order to protect a private right of armed self defense.

Having scammed her way through her hearings, she'll now be on the Court as a reliably Leftist, activist voice for a couple of decades.

Just a reminder to consider this when you listen to any assurances coming out of Elana Kagan's mouth right now.

please helps me write more gooder!

This woman is less qualified for this position than Harriet Miers w whom President George W. Bush nominated for the Supreme Court. The "left" and even the "right" vigorously opposed her nomination primarily on the grounds that she lacked the qualifications for such a position and she was a Bush crony. They did the right thing in that instance.

Now Mr. Obama has nominated one of his cronies who is less qualified than Ms. Miers was. Where is the "left" now? By their actions here and elsewhere they show they have no ethics? As for the "right," they do not have any media outlets to get a message out. Also, they may be demoralized from being trampled on by both Republicans and Democrats. Nevertheless I do wish they would oppose this person's nomination with the same vigor that they opposed the nomination of Ms. Miers.

The only justice I trust to follow the Constitution is Clarence Thomas : he will stand up to both the left-wing -- & right-wing -- . --dragon/dinosaur
