GOP Senator Jeff Sessions has taken to the Senate floor to oppose the nomination of Elena Kagan to the Supreme Court. He’s accused Kagan of believing that judges can simply ignore the Constitution and replace it with her personal vision of what the law should be.
I think he’s confusing Kagan for the five justices who decided in Citizens United that it was gigantic corporations who the founders had in mind when adopting the First Amendment. That’s a vision of society totally at odds with what the founders had in mind, to say nothing of what the American people want. It’s a vision shared only by extremist pro-business conservative ideologues.
