Elena Kagan's deputy takes over

By Ed O'Keefe

By The Post's Robert Barnes in 44:

Solicitor General Elena Kagan was not at the Supreme Court this morning to hear that she had won one of the cases she argued. And she told the court in a letter that her deputy will take over all filings at the court while her nomination to replace Justice John Paul Stevens is pending.
Kagan told the court that Principal Deputy Solicitor General Neal Katyal will serve as acting solicitor general "in all filings after the date of my nomination involving the United States Government."
If her nomination is successful, Kagan will need to recuse herself from any government appeal she worked on as solicitor general. The move is one way to protect her from any additional conflicts.

Sorry, dottydo, she IS what we want...not a Clarence Uncle Thomas conservative judicial activist.

We only need one of the "originalist" garbage to croak and Obama can appoint a real judge to tip the balance of the Court back to reality and out of conservative la la land.

You are right, dottydo. Kegan is clearly not what Americans want. She is what Obama and other U.S. enemies want.

Kagan's thesis lamenting the defeat of socialism in the U.S. shows her early love affair with radicalism. Additionally, the fact that Obama, a U.S. hating Marxist, has selected her for the Supreme Court, demonstrates that she must still share Obama's goal with forcing socialism/Marxism on us.

The fact that Kagan lacks a "paper trail" and is "agreeable" just makes it easier for Obama and his comrades to fool people into believing that she is not dangerous.

It's is obvious, however, that if Kagan is nominated, she would do her best to help Obama transform the U.S. from a prosperous, capitalist, FREE country into another failed, poor, socialist, ENSLAVED country.
