Perjurious Kagan Confirmed By Supine Senate

Check out the lede sentence:

Chalk up another legacy for President Obama, as the Senate confirms Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan.

Yet another legacy. Historic, is he.

The vote was 63-37.

The roll of shame:

Only five Republicans voted in favor of Kagan's nomination. Last year, just nine Republicans voted for Justice Sonia Sotomayor, Obama's first Supreme Court appointee.

Today's yes votes included Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., the lone Republican on the Senate Judiciary Committee to support Kagan when the panel recommended the nomination to the full Senate on a 13-6 vote. Other GOP yes votes came from Richard Lugar of Indiana, Olympia Snowe and Susan Collins of Maine, and Judd Gregg of New Hampshire.

Sen. Scott Brown, R-Mass, one of Kagan's home state senators, voted against her.

Ben Nelson voted against her, by the way. He hears the footsteps.

And yet the Maine Twits and galpal Lindsey voted for her.
