The Liberty Sphere-RINOs

Anthony Martin, over at the Liberty Sphere, has a post up to day naming the RINOs in the Senate who will not support a filibuster of Elena Kagan's nomination to the Supreme Court.

Elena Kagan is one of the worst threats to liberty to come along in many years. If the Progressive/Marxist MSM had an ounce of integrity, they would recognize that Kagan should be given the Palin treatment. While Palin at least had been a mayor and a State governor, palin has not even been a trial lawyer, let alone a judge. While I do not think such experience is necessary to high office, I would like to point out that much of the criticism of Palin was on just that point.

The Senate now has 41 people with an 'R' after their name. They could mount a successful filibuster of Elena Kagan, forcing the Administration to choose another candidate. Why don't they? What are they waiting for? The ability to filibuster is an important tool and the right should use it as much as the left does. Kagan should be Borked. But we have Progressives in the Republican party who are, frankly, sympathetic to the collectivist idea. We must get rid of these RINOs at the nearest opportunity, starting with McCain.

  1. R in name only.

    It's why voting doesn't matter any more.
