Elena Kagan: Well, That Looks Like My Handwriting On That Memo, But Gee I Don't Know What You're Talking About
— Ace

Dear Lord.

The memo, reported yesterday by National Review, has caused a stir in conservative circles because it appeared that Kagan, then a White House policy aide, put words in the medical group’s mouth in order to soften its position on the controversial procedure. But when Republican Sen. Orrin Hatch brought the subject up with Kagan, he had a hard time getting her to admit that she did, in fact, write the document in question.

“Did you write that memo?” Hatch asked.

“Senator, with respect,” Kagan began, “I don’t think that that’s what happened — ”

“Did you write that memo?”

“I’m sorry — the memo which is?”

“The memo that caused them to go back to the language of ‘medically necessary,’ which was the big issue to begin with — ”

“Yes, well, I’ve seen the document — ”

“But did you write it?”

“The document is certainly in my handwriting.”

Emphasis added. This is not just politics (which, for whatever reason, we're supposed to pretend we don't take into account). This is demonstrating a clear preference for deception over truth.

The original shenanigans were the first proof of unethical and shady behavior. And now her Vinnie Barbarino act -- "What? Who? Where?" -- is further proof of her fundamental determination to lie and game the system.

She is without candor -- a key prerequisite for a lifetime judicial appointment.

Sounds like she got some interview prep from Hillary Clinton, who famously claimed she didn't remember Whitewater, despite having herself billed hours on it, because she only knew it by its three-letter billing code and never once heard the word "Whitewater."

“That depends on what the definition of 'write' is.”

Kagan: *You want answers?* Hatch:*I want the truth!* Kagan: *You can’t handle the truth!* [pauses] Kagan: Son, we live in a world that has babies, and those be killed. Whose gonna do it? You? You, Senator Coburn? I have a greater responsibility than you could possibly fathom. You weep for your children, and you curse Planned Parenthood. You have that luxury. You have the luxury of not knowing what I know. That our children, while cute, get in the way of feminism. And my existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, allows for Gloria Steinham to keep ranting. You don't want what I call the truth because deep down in places I don't talk about at parties, I know you're right. I use words like right to chose and women's privacy. We use these words as the backbone of an industry that kills babies. You use them as way to celebrate the sanctity of life. I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man, any man, anywhere, because I'm a woman and you're not. I would rather you just said thank you, and went on your way, Otherwise, I suggest you pick up a knife and castrate yourself. Either way, I don't give a damn what you think you are entitled to. Hatch: Did you write this memo? Kagan: I did the job I... Hatch: *Did you write this memo?* Kagan: *You’re Goddamned right I did!*

I'm sorry but she is the least "judicial" looking person I've seen at these hearings in all the years that these types of hearings have been held. She looks like someone's crazy maiden aunt who is coverd in cat hair and smells like overripe cheese.

Forgive me for saying this, but even Sotomayer, who I hate, looked more qualified as she sat in her hearings.

Screw them. why go through all the empty exercises of pretending we have a democracy left. We have reached that tipping point where there are more people in America wanting a hand-out, than a hand up.

I hate libtards, in every freaking fashion.  I hate their whining, their self-inflicted victim status, their hatred of everything white, their childish and self-absorbed need for the government to solve people's problems.

Their inability to rise above their inherit racism which makes them strive to level the outcome rather than the playing field.  Affirmative Action. School Vouchers.

How they simply do not 'get' American Exceptalism.  That our idea of "nationality" is"different, based less on common history or ethnicity than on common beliefs.  That constitution thing.  The one they are constantly trying to rewrite because it isn't fair. to everyone. because everyone is special.

I do I hate them.

The more information that comes out about this harpy, the more obvious it becomes that she's a typical far-Left piece of trash.  A degenerate, vulgar, vile thing that has made itself subhuman through its intellectual dishonesty, moral depravity, and thorough disowning of all nobler human virtues and sentiments.  Of course, Obastard would nominate no other kind.   

To see a picture of Kagan as she truly is, and all those like her, one need go no further than to read Orwell.  Alternatively, another fine description of those murderous little totalitarians can be found in C. S. Lewis's book That Hideous Strength - in the characters in league with the N.I.C.E.

It is the great tragedy of modern history that the opponents of such people - those who stand for justice and liberty - are the ones who end up in the death camps, rather than vice versa.  It is the Kagans of the world who should be going up the crematory chimney.

Next question should have been to set a trap:

Would you like to claim its a high quality forgery?

If they say no, then you've established they did in fact write it.

If they say yes, then you go down the security breach path and start questioning them about sloppy procedures that would allow a forgery to be pawned off as genuine for years without anyone noticing.

I could see how she could spin that move to make it appear that it was done out of loyalty to the Party and not disloyalty to the President.  She would simply say, "I took the job of Secretary of State not out of loyalty or gratitude to Barack Obama, but out of loyalty and gratitude to the people of the United States and especially to the Democratic voters who looked to their party to close the book on the Bush Era.  It's now become clear that I am not in a position to save this President and this Administration from its own mistakes and misguided policies, and my higher loyalty to my country requires that I resign from this Administration and seek to redirect the Democratic Party to the policies and goals that are needed to save America."

See, and here I thought she couldn't possibly tell a bigger lie than when she was spouting off about how she'd let the law, rather than politics, guide her decisions.

Bullshit.  We heard basically the same crap from the other libs on the Court now, and none of them can find anything in the the Constitution that gives us the right to keep an bear arms (You know, like it says in no uncertain terms right in the 2nd amendment), but boy they sure can find some murky "equal protection" argument or some totally unwritten right such as "privacy" to justify advancing their legislative agenda even though none of that crap is in the Constitution at all.

But as usual the Republican's will take this lying down, like they always do.  I guess they don't get it that a lot of us would like to see them stand up - to philibuster this worthless bitch even if it would mean she'd probably still get confirmed.

Make us believe that they understand are every bit as concerned about aht the hell is going on around them as we are - but sadly they'll most likely do what they always do, play nice and say crap like "Well if we raise a fuss then the next time we nominate someone.. "

Again, total crap.  The democrats are the nastiest, filthiest, most underhanded character assasins no matter who a republican nominates.  So please, don't use that tired, worn out excuse for why your just letting them roll all over you, again.

Geez Louise, you stupid cons haven't been right about anything!  Obviously, Ms. Kagan's handwriting was forged by one of those recently captured Russian spies.  She has never seen that document before because they used invisible ink that didn't become visible unitl today.  Ray-gun is dead.  Get over it!!!111!!   Obama won!!11!!!

As long as we have mindless turds like alleged "conservatives"  Graham, Hatch and Sessions sucking up to Osama Obama and his Politburo, we are doomed to have lefty batshit jerks like Kagan populating every arm of the government.

As long as Sessions isn't leading the charge to filibuster/impede/derail the nomination, he's a gutless squish of a Repub who needs to be retired immediately.

When the full Senate gets ready to vote on Kagan, anyone who doesn't do anything possible to stop the latest step in the Osama Obama March Toward Totalitarian Marxism deserves to go down. Hard.

The Ed Morrissey-style "even-handed" approach helped get us into this mess. There are only two kinds of people left: enablers and patriots. No excuses, no evasions.

It's too late for equivocations and lame gags.
