…and Mike Myers coming this summer as voice of Shrek

The Huffington Post has reported that Solicitor General and former Harvard Law Dean Elena Kagan is set to be nominated to the Supreme Court by President Obama.

President Obama considers her to be a persuasive, fearless advocate who would serve as an intellectual counterweight to Chief Justice Roberts and Justice Scalia, and could lure swing Justice Kennedy into some coalitions.

Kagan earned a B.A. from Princeton University, summa cum laude, in 1981. She then earn an M.Phil degree from Oxford University. In 1986 she received a J.D., magna cum laude, from Harvard Law School and was the Supervisory Editor of the Harvard Law Review. Kagan was a law clerk for Judge Abner Mikva of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit and for Justice Thurgood Marshall of the U.S. Supreme Court. She later entered private practice as an associate at the Washington, D.C., law firm of Williams & Connolly. She taught at the University of Chicago Law School and then from 1995 to 1999, she served as President Bill Clinton’s Associate White House Counsel and Deputy Assistant to the President for Domestic Policy and Deputy Director of the Domestic Policy Council. In 2003 she was appointed the first female dean of Harvard Law School. At Harvard, she distinguished herself in many ways, including her opposition to the presence of military recruiters on campus. Her opposition was based on the military’s then policy of “don’t ask, don’t tell” with regards to sexual orientation, which she found to be discriminatory. In 2009, after her appointment by President Obama, she was confirmed as the first female Solicitor General of the United States.

Kagan’s nomination to the Supreme Court is still not official and might be harmed by rumors regarding her sexual orientation. CBS News published a blog post by Ben Domenech which repeated a rumor that Kagan is a lesbian. CBS removed the post shortly after White House officials stated that the rumor was untrue. Oh, and Kagan is also Jewish.

In other totally unrelated news, Mike Myers is set to play the voice of Shrek in the third iteration of the Shrek film franchise Shrek Forever. Joining Myers will be the voices of Cameron Diaz, Eddie Murphy and Antonio Banderas.

  • who cares what she does in bed…as long as it is with a consenting adult

    she is intelligent and will make a great addition to the court

    not that it matters…the roberts court is owned and operated by the corporatists

  • Uncle Joe: The Christian right cares because of the Gay Marriage issue, and some Gay activists care because they think she should be out of the closet. If she is indeed gay.

    I don’t care. Her record thus far has been stellar and at 50, her relative youth will make sure that there will be a strong liberal voice in the court for a long, long, time.

    Fun Joel: Sorry about the Shrek thing, I really wasn’t counting…

  • isnt Kagan an Irish name?

    Harvard

    Does that count for anything or is it all about she is irish or Whatever else.
    This country is sooooo stupid

  • Yet another jew appointment for Obama, who has already appointed more jews that ALL other minorities combined (including Hispanics, Blacks, East Asians, South Asians(and of course NO Arabs or Muslims)). Obama works for Israel NOT America. His Nobel “Peace” Prize should be taken back and given to Dr. Noam Chomsky instead.

  • Oh my god. I put in one little line about her being Jewish, cut me some slack!

    kevin: She graduated magna cum laude from Harvard, not summa cum laude (the higher honor) and the UK doesn’t use Latin honors. You’ll note that about 98% of my post discussed things other than her Jewishness.

    Zakimar? I guess I don’t have to worry about YOU ever getting appointed to the Supreme Court, graduating whatever cum laude from any notable university or accomplishing anything praiseworthy in your life other than maybe a self-administered lobotomy…

  • The jews ONLY care about Israel and having more of them in positions of power will only hasten the demise of America and EVERY country foolish enough to tolerate their presence. After Germany asked their jews to leave (the “holocaust” is a hoax), the jews went primarily to three countries: Palestine; USSR; and USA. They destroyed Palestine; bankrupted and destroyed the USSR; and are now bankrupting the USA – ALL the members of the Federal Reserve and Treasury are jews as are the heads of the World Bank and IMF. If Americans continue to allow THEIR leaders to appoint jews and have them control their media, the USA will go the way of Palestine and the USSR.

    • OMG can you really be that stupid? Hey Zakimar – are you wondering why I don’t delete your comments that reveal the deep hidden secrets of the Jews and their plans for world domination? Think about it dummy.

  • Funny. I can’t f***ing stand Obama. I think he’s the worst president in US history AND he is the worst president of all time for Israel and this anti-Semitic piece of shit thinks he works for Israel. On top of that, we see just what kind of dirtbags respect Chomsky. Hahaha.

  • More jew lies/propaganda. But I want to thank you jews for helping to destroy the USA because I know you racist morons think you are chosen by God when you’re actually doing Satan’s work, but when the USA goes and can’t give 7 BILLION in US Taxpayer money and weapons to Israel, that evil state will FINALLY be returned to the native Palestinians and NO country will take those jew “refugees” after seeing how you destroyed the last country that allowed you in.

    PS. The ONLY decent jews are the ones the vast majority of jews insult and call “self-hating” like Dr. Chomsky; Dr. Finkelstein; Howard Zinn; David Cole; Rachel Corrie (whom Israeli jews murdered) and the TINY amount of Israel soldiers that refuse to kill children in the countries they occupy. But the jew press never gives those decent jews a voice, just the war criminals like EVERY leader of Israel and the scum at JDL, Binai Brith, ADL, and other jew terrorist and racist groups as well as the likes of Dershowitz, Kristol and almost every “expert” on the Middle East on the jew controlled networks.

  • The Talmud tells you jews to lie and cheat us non-jews. Who would believe a jew that says he hates Obama for giving Israel BILLIONS of dollars, allowing them to kill Palestinians at will, keep their nuclear weapons while demanding Iran not even have nuclear energy, attack every country that has any chance of defending itself against Israel, appoints more jews to his Administration than any previous Administration… If after all of that you jews still hate Obama, that’s only because you are racist and aren’t happy because he’s not a jew too.

  • Oh look, it’s CTC! How much longer are we going to keep around our resident troll this time around?

  • Oh come on guys, can we keep it around? It’s soo cute and as harmless as any mouth breathing gimp can be. So it missed the breast feeding stage or maybe is still in that stage. But either way, it confirms everything I’ve ever said about Chomsky, Finklestein, etc. It’s a great example of it’s kin. Inbred and fucked in the head. I like playing with it.

  • Dude. That’s it? That’s all you got? How gay. How trite. How boring. I would think that with all that hate bubbling inside, you could try a little harder to be more creative, more descriptive, more emphatic maybe. Instead, all you bring is shit I could find on any other website inhabited by mouth breathing gimps. Seriously dude, how about you start over and try again. Give me something I can dance to, or at least be slightly offended by. But don’t come wack and limp wristed again or Ill track you down and force feed you a fat Jew sausage, like I did your mom.

  • Zakimar:

    You clearly know nothing about the Talmud or what it teaches, nor do you know anything about the history of the Middle East.

    You seem to be of the opinion that he only reason for all of the violence in the Arab/Muslim world is due to the Jews, Israel and the US’s support of Israel.

    Really??? That’s why Muslims are killing each other in Darfur and Uganda (black vs. arab Muslims)? And, that’s why India and Pakistan are still fighting over Kashmir? And, let us not forget the war between Iraq and Iran. Why isn’t anyone questioning Jordan’s right to exist (Independent since May 25, 1946, Constitution enacted January 8, 1952)? Or, how about our good friends and allies (phew) in Saudi Arabia? That area was inhabited by various nomadic tribes throughout history. In the early part of the 20th Century, after thirty years (1902-1932) of Muslims fighting and killing their fellow Muslims (without any participation of the US, Jews or Israel), until the current boundaries of Saudi Arabia were drawn.

    Syria and Lebanon? After WWI and the dissolution of the Ottoman Empire (Greater Turkey), The League of Nations split the dominion of former Syria between two countries. In 1922 the United Kingdom got Transjordan and Palestine while France got what later became Syria (which wasn’t recognized as an independent republic until January 1, 1944 and after which there was constant political upheaval through the late 1960s) and Lebanon (gained independence in 1943, with the French troops leaving in 1946). In Lebanon, the Muslims and Christians have spent decades fighting and killing each other. Israeli troops supported the Christians in the south while the Syrians supported the Muslims in the middle and north. After much political pressure forced the withdrawal of the Israelis, nobody seemed to have a problem with Syria setting up camp throughout the whole country. Lebanon was also embroiled in a Civil War that lasted from 1975-1990.

    Israel is the only country in the Middle East that is elected by its citizens (which includes its Arab and Muslim citizens, who are also permitted to run for elected office, and have served in the Knesset the Israeli Parliament). It is one of the world’s ten most rights-conscious nations in the world. By any criteria, Israel’s record on human rights is better than any country in the Middle East. Among our Arab so-called allies, there are no such rights. In Egypt, homosexuality is punishable by death. In Saudi Arabia, women have few, if any, rights. And, there other big export (besides oil) is Islamo-Fascism.

    Any one of the many Arab countries could have easily absorbed the “Palestinians”, but instead have chosen to exploit them as a political tool. The fact is that there were far greater numbers of Jews residing throughout the Arab world who were displaced after the birth of modern day Israel than there were Muslims who fled from Israel. Jews made up 2% of the Arab world BEFORE World War II. Israel with its current boundaries constitutes roughly 2% of what the PLO charter describes as “the Arab homeland”. There are almost NO Jews left in the surrounding Arab countries. The reason that you don’t hear about it is because Israel happily absorbed their brethren into their society, rather than use them politically.

    Also, in the state of Israel, believers of Christianity, Islam, Judaism and B’Hai religious traditions are ALL allowed safe access to the places of religious significance to them. None of these places were desecrated, as many of them were while under Arab rule. Which, by the way, is completely in keeping with what the Talmud actually says (which boils down to love thy neighbor as thyself).

    There is one, single reason why there is no peace in the Middle East, and that is because the Arabs don’t want peace. In 1978, Israel gave the entire Sinai peninsula (which has far greater natural resources than does Israel) back to Egypt for the promise of Peace. The reason why the Sinai Peninsula was part of Israel was because Israel was attacked from all sides by her neighbors in 1967. It is one thing to ask of Israel to be a willing partner in the peace process (which they have been). But, it is another thing to ask any sovereign nation (of which Israel has as much right to exist as do her neighbors) to commit suicide.

    As for your ignorant claim that the Jews control the media, don’t you think that if that were actually true, we would give ourselves better press???

    This is America, and you are entitled to your opinions. However, I would invite you to take the time to study the actual facts and history before you declare opinion as fact or fiction as truth.

  • Correction:

    Israel makes up 2/10ths of 1% of what the PLO Charter describes as “the Arab Homeland”. I misplaced the decimal point.
