Pretty big difference from the last Kagan poll.

It will be interesting to see if there is as much drama this June with Kagan as there was last July with Sonya S.

I know she got really drunk one night when Alphonse D'Amato the Republican beat a progressive she was supporting in New York. I remember those moments myself. I think when Wellstone died in the crash I was pretty upset and I got really drunk and left some food in the microwave the night Al Gore conceded. I was so angry that he was giving up, I hoped it was only a nightmare.

If she is asked this question or another wacky question by someone like Kyl or Sessions, she should ask them a question back and be a slight bit of a smartass. I think they will just love it.

They do need to tighten up security during the hearings. Some of those pro-life radicals broke in and started to make some noise during the Sodomayar hearings. Ironically, her record in that respect was relatively pro life. I saw them taken away by security.

Again it just shows the greater tendancy from right wing extremists to become stalkers and resorting to violence and disruption.

Feeling passionate about an issue is fine but I don't ever remember during Roberts and Alito's hearings some angry mom whose son was executed having to be carted away, or perhaps a radical femminist, or an affirmative action zealot. The groups from the left have not been doing that stuff recently, especially to a supreme court nominee who hasn't even been confirmed yat.

Wow, what monsters! I'm sure glad they didn't succeed in stopping the just and well planned war plans of the last Administration.

I am sure Sheehan's intentions simply went as far as making a angry statement. I don't think Sheehan carried loaded guns within earshot of where Obama was speaking like that idiot in NH last summer.

With Dr Tiller's shooting, the killing at the Holocaust museum, the possibly murder of the US census worker and the IRS suicide Bomber and the Michigan terror group plotting to kill law enforcement officials and overthrow the government, it truly terifys me every time someone from the right gets aggressive. I never know who may pull out a gun and start shooting.
