What's all the fuss?

Media failed voters during election

I don't quite understand the uproar in the Democratic Party over the nomination of Alvin Greene for Senate. He got a huge majority of votes in the Democratic primary. Afterward, voters claimed they didn't know him or thought he was somebody else. What's the big deal? Thanks to the abject failure of the mainstream media to do its job, that's exactly how we wound up with the Community-Organizer-in-Chief in the White House. Am I the only one to see the humor in this?

Elena kagan

Nominee warrants a second look

Legislate from the bench, says the nominee?

I heard Elena Kagan, the current nominee to the U.S. Supreme Court, state that she is open to ideas from foreign laws and countries when it comes to making her decisions.

I don't know about the rest of you, but we have a constitution, and the last time I checked, that is the rule of law for this land we call "the United States of America. Millions have fought and died for it and all it stands for.

Now we have this woman, who wants to be on the U.S. Supreme Court, tell us she will go to "foreign law" to reach a decision? Legislate from the bench? No way.

What bothers me even more is that Sen. Lindsey Graham supports this lady and her "foreign thoughts."

Perhaps we had better take not only a second look at her, but at Graham. Perhaps she supports Muslim law for the U.S.
