So what were you up to yesterday? If you are Senator Jefferson Beauregard Sessions III, your answer is, "Oh, I spent the afternoon being mad at Thurgood Marshall, who is a dead person and also a hero."
Assuming you are not the junior senator from Alabama, let’s proceed with a wee recap of a highlight from Day 2 of Princess Kagan and the Temple of Gross. So Solicitor General Elena Kagan clerked for Marshall, the Supreme Court’s first African-American member, during the 1987-88 term. Jeff Sessions does not like this, because Thurgood Marshall was an "activist judge." It is possible that Jeff Sessions also has heard that Thurgood Marshall was a Known Activist even before he was a judge? In fact, it’s his fault that the all-white color scheme at your favorite local public school was altered (this was before the Internets were invented, so it does not really matter, but here is what your friends would call a "recap.")
Here is Jeff Sessions on why Elena Kagan should not be the new Supreme Court Idol…
"Importantly, throughout her career, Ms. Kagan has associated herself with well-known activist judges who have used their power to redefine the meaning of words of our Constitution and laws in ways that, not surprisingly, have the result of advancing that judge's preferred social policies and agendas. She clerked for Judge Mikva and Justice Marshall, each well-known activists. And she has called Israeli Judge Aharon Barak, who has been described as the most activist judge in the world, as her hero."
Who are these other terrible criminals Elena Kagan has law-dated? Here is a random and totally correct guess: Israeli Judge Aharon Barak Obama is a Muslim terrorist. Also, Judge Mikva is a human bathtub for Jewish ladies.
Day 3 is going to be so fucking awesome.
