Dear Senator McConnell,
I write to you because until Jim Rutledge takes office next January I have no representation in this state. I am writing to urge a filibuster against the nomination of Ms Kagan
She is adamantly pro-choice and almost certainly broached contempt of Congress when she kept trying to deflect the question of authorship of the section of the law involving partial birth abortion. To respond, “it is in my handwriting,” after repeated questions concerning her role in the paragraph was disingenuous at best and contemptible at worst
Her comments today about her doubts concerning inalienable rights in the Constitution would have caused the authors of the Constitution to scream out in anguish at her dense interpretation. We can expect no better, and look forward to far worse from this political hack.
Yes, it is customary to allow the President’s appointees to be confirmed. However the Senate was given the role of Advise and Consent precisely because the founding fathers foresaw the possibility of a President so far out of touch with reality that he could not select people for their integrity and qualities of leadership essential to good government.
This nomination is truly one of those cases. The time to gain payback for Miguel Estrada and Robert Bork has arrived. I grant you may not prevail, but each day of delay in her appointment will surely delay the DISCLOSE bill and the Financial Reform bill. Either of those outcomes will stand you and your colleagues in good stead on election day this November.
