Elena Kagan no longer thinks Supreme Court nominees should have to answer direct questions | The Daily Caller - Breaking News, Opinion, Research, and Entertainment

Oh My God... you're kidding?
Elena Kagan no longer thinks Supreme Court nominees should have to answer direct questions | The Daily Caller

"Kagan wrote in 1995 that the confirmation process had become a “charade” because nominees were not answering direct questions, and said they should have to do so.

But during a briefing with reporters in the White House, Ron Klain, a top legal adviser to Vice President Joe Biden who played a key role in helping President Obama choose Kagan, said that she no longer holds this opinion."

Well... what could have made her change her mind? I am shocked... SHOCKED, I tell you. Perhaps she just decided that we plebes should have short memories, and overlook such blatant stupidity.

“She was asked about it and said that both the passage of time and her perspective as a nominee had given her a new appreciation and respect for the difficulty of being a nominee, and the need to answer questions carefully,” Klain said, prompting laughter from a few reporters."

Oh... her perspective as a nominee... You know, you can't make this shit up, folks. Incompetent liars are poised to take control of our entire lives. And some of you welcome it. No problem... but someday WE may be in power, and watch what the fuck we do to your rights and liberties... bwahahahahahaha...

"Prompting laughter from reporters"... who will not report it as a problem though. Wrong people in office for it to be a problem... it's just a joke. Like reporters.

“I’m not sure that, sitting here today, I would agree with that statement,” Kagan said, referring to her own opinion from 14 years prior.

“I wrote that when I was in the position of sitting where the staff is now sitting, and feeling a little bit frustrated that I really wasn’t understanding completely what the judicial nominee in front of me meant and what she thought,” Kagan said, referring to her time on Biden’s staff in 1993 when he was chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Oh... OK. You were an incompetent fool then, when holding sway on others lives. Where understanding the process was really really important cause you were holding sway on others lives, you were not up to the job. And we are led to believe that now as you sit there squirming with every mention of your OWN words, you are up to the job of holding even MORE power over people's lives?

You are an idiot. A total, incompetent fool of an idiot.
