Wing-nut jurisprude goes off message

Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan was in MKE tonight ...
Long after Obama is out of office we'll have to live with the intellectual lightweights he (Kohl and Feingold) appointed to the Supreme Court. Introducing Kagen ...
Can't even spell her name.

You know what's funny is the most articulate recommendation and support for Justice Kagan's nomination came from Miguel Estrada, who not too long ago was the wing-nut juridical hero par excellence.

And there is Justice Kagan chatting with Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals Chief Judge and legendary conservative constructionist Frank Easterbrook. Think he thinks Kagan is an "intellectual lightweight"?

Doubt it.

By the way, Wisconsin State Senator Leah Vukmir pronounced former Associate Justice David Souter "dim" and then Obama's other appointee to the Court, Justice Sonia Sotomayor, "even dimmer."

Perhaps a debate could be arranged. So, evidently these views are shared not just among anonymous online conservative Republicans but voiced and encouraged by their elected political leaders.

Good to know. Especially on July 12.

A fan, but this one? Couldn't follow. Let's talk about logical linking strategies.

Checked all the links, working good.

What part of "conservatives like to insult the mental prowess of judges they don't agree with is" is difficult to understand, jimspice?

Another recent celebrated case in point: Judge Maryann Sumi, who only read the law in "a publication that is sent to schoolchildren," according to a Marquette University professor of law.

Leah Vukmir calling anyone 'dim' is pretty hilarious on its own. I'm just saying.
