AUTHOR: Bruce Walker at the American Thinker
LENGTH: 900 words
SUBJECT: Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan
WHAT ELENA KAGAN IS: A "cipher"
ALSO: A "reliable leftist"
AND: A "nebbish"
WHAT THE SUPREME COURT JUSTICES ARE: "Pigmies"
EXPLANATION: "Any Storm Trooper or Soviet apparatick can support unequal treatment under the law"
WORD COUNT IN FOURTH PARAGRAPH: "Social justice" (7, 14 ); Nazis and Nazism (2, 14 ); fascists and fascism (2, 14 ); "radical socialist priest" (1)
So while we listen to the overly serious pundits discuss Elena Kagan's grade point average in law school or success as a legal intern or cases handled as Solicitor General, remember that none of this matters in the least. It has all the drama of the elevation of a Candidate Member of the Politburo to full membership.
BONUS FACT: "Woodrow Wilson, who in many ways fathered 'Progressivism' in America, thought well of the Klan."
