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)

CONLUSION:


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."
