Stop the Press! "Kagan Vows to Rule Impartially," Reports Politico.com


And we have confirmation from CNN, which is reporting at this hour that United States Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan, on the first day today of her Senate confirmation hearings, "pledges open mind, impartiality if confirmed to Supreme Court." Kagan's vow must come as quite the relief for her dem supporters, since it had been widely anticipated that Kagan might testify today that she intends to take to the bench committed to the principles of partiality, non-objectivity, bias, close-mindedness, and even a touch of unfairness just for good measure. But nothin' doin' on that front!

Be sure to check back here for further summaries of the hard-hitting events from this circus (errrr, hearing). As a tease, currently developing is a new update from CNN reporting that "partisanship marks Kagan hearing." Bombshell!

  1. Postscript: If Joe Biden would haul off and give that ice cream parlor dude a "smartass" blast simply for joking about lowering our taxes, think what Big Joey might say to me? It would not be for the weak of heart.

  2. Big Joey couldn't handle you, he might just explode! I, for one, would very much like to see that =)

  3. He'd likely upgrade his "smartass" blast to that of "dumbass" or "jackass," and then hit me with a few gratuitous F-Bombs, followed by trying to give me to ol' Hucklebuck down at the end of the bar. As a counterpunch, I'd really start to get his goat by hitting him with some 1990's speech plagiarism material straight outta left field!

  5. And if I really want the guy to shut up, I'll just put some ice cream in front of his piehole because dude really seems to love his frozen custard. Between that and Obama's cheeseburgers, I think all of Michelle Obama's preaching about healthier diets is falling on some big deaf ears over at the White House.

  6. They are the perfect example of telling people to do what they say, not what they do!

  7. I still recall the first time I ever heard that phrase. I was working in the grill at the Columbia Rock Bridge McDonald's, circa 1990 (the one with the fountain inside and located at Providence and Nifong). This jerkwad manager dude named Bisbee, whom no one liked, said that to me. "Do as I say, not as I do." What a jerk!

This weasely little cheesy porn-mustached manager named Bisbee (or maybe it was Frisbee) told me that. "Do as I say, not as I do." What a dork! I hated working at that joint. But it sure gave me a great appreciation for the folks who work in the fast-food industry. My hat will always be off to them.
