Should Kagan Recuse Herself on Obamacare?


#1

Actually, was her confirmation legally valid, given that she may have lied during confirmation hearings????


#2

Of course I'm with ya, but what difference does it make? We have no allies. She couldn't have been confirmed if it were not for republicans on the judiciary committee. Who's gonna do anything about it? They shredded her like a brick of Parmesan and then voted to confirm like they always do. Asking if her judgeship is valid because she lied is like asking if 80% of our presidencies are valid for the same reason. The fact that she did it under oath during confirmation hearings matters legally, but not in principle.
