Halfway through the year - June 30th Edition

Confirmation [so-called] hearings for Elena Kagan - a woman with no views and no personal life, avoiding questions asked by people with few apparent brains or ability to actually form coherent lines of inquiry (although perfectly capable of harassing the witness and a dead and heroic former Justice).  What a shame - what a sham.  Those who claim to be conservative originalists should ponder what The Founders would think of this charade. This is shameful, but no one seems ashamed. Except me.
Future-Justice Kagan has no moral qualms about the death penalty; I, now, have moral qualms about her. Does she have moral qualms about anything the "High" court has approved?
