Aug 5 – Elena “Pat” Kagan was confirmed to a seat on the Supreme Court, replacing retiring Justice John Paul Stevens.
Nominated by Obama, the Senate voted 63-37 to make Kagan America’s 112th Supreme Court Justice.
Who is Elena Kagan? A Jewish, American lawyer, former dean of Harvard Law School and Solicitor General of the United States.
And current lookalike of the wildly successful “Pat” the sexually ambiguous, Saturday Night Live character.
Kagan is no friend to gun owners and Republicans strongly opposed Elena’s confirmation on grounds of being unqualified for the job, having never been a judge.
” I’m honored and humbled by his [obama’s] confidence… This is the Greatest of all Countries because of the freedoms and opportunities it offers its people. ” – US Supreme Court Justice, Elena Kagan
