McCain to oppose Kagan

FWIW...


Hello -

I wanted you to be among the first people to know that Senator McCain will oppose the nomination of Elena Kagan to the U.S. Supreme Court.



In an Op Ed scheduled to run in Thursday's USA Today Senator McCain states, in part:

When Kagan was dean of Harvard Law School, she unmistakably discouraged Harvard students from considering a career in the military even while claiming to do otherwise by denying military recruiters the same access to Harvard students that was granted to white-shoe law firms. Kagan did so because she believed the military's "don't ask, don't tell" policy to be "a profound wrong a moral injustice of the first order."

While Kagan is entitled to her opinion, she was not entitled to ignore the law that requires universities to allow military recruiters on campus under terms of equal access with all other recruiters. The chief of recruiting for the Air Force's Judge Advocate General Corps described the impact of Kagan's changes by saying that "Harvard is playing games." The Army's report from that same period was even more blunt, stating, "The Army was stonewalled at Harvard."

Kagan tried to justify her actions in terms of Harvard's anti-discrimination policy and sought a compromise by asking the law school's Veterans Association to host military recruiters. However, the association responded to the dean, "Given our tiny membership, meager budget, and lack of any office space, we possess neither the time nor the resources ... of the Harvard Law School Office of Career Services." An Air Force recruiter wrote Pentagon officials, "Without the support of the Career Services Office, we are relegated to wandering the halls in hopes that someone will stop and talk to us."

Senator McCain continued:

"I have previously stated that I do not believe judges should stray beyond their constitutional role and act as if they have greater insight than representatives who are elected by the people. Given the choice to uphold a law that was unpopular with her peers and students or interpret the law to achieve her own political objectives, she chose the latter. I cannot support her nomination to the Supreme Court where, based on her prior actions, it appears unlikely that she would exercise judicial restraint."

Dumbass Lindsey Graham will probably vote for her.

So she thinks the military discriminates against gays by not asking them about their sexual preference?

So?

I'm sure one or two Dem's will oppose her too (with B.O.'s permission, of course). She's in she only needs 51 votes and there are what, 58 dems in the senate?
