Is The Gay SCOTUS Seat Being Filled?

Hey, since Queerty.com and our friend Andrew Sullivan have “gone all in” by declaring Elena Kagan a lesbian (frankly, I have no idea or not…. nor do I care)….

It is no more of an empirical question than whether she is Jewish. We know she is Jewish, and it is a fact simply and rightly put in the public square. If she were to hide her Jewishness, it would seem rightly odd, bizarre, anachronistic, even arguably self-critical or self-loathing. And yet we have been told by many that she is gay … and no one will ask directly if this is true and no one in the administration will tell us definitively.

….then I’m playing this card:  IF she is, is she actually filling the homosexual Supreme Court seat left vacant since last year? 

Oh come on, you never heard of the David Souter gay talk?  Where have you been?  In the same crowd of women that pine for Anderson Cooper…. or the Village People?  Sheesh.

Again, my big question is why does Obama think that being a lesbian is such a bad thing?  His White House indicated as much when Kagan’s name first surfaced after Justice Stevens announced his retirement.

Why is the White House treating lesbian rumors like allegations of vampiric necrophilia? When CBS republished a column repeating the rumor that possible Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan is a lesbian, the White House responded furiously. Because lesbians are terrible?

The White House press office blew up. Anita Dunn said: “The fact that they’ve chosen to become enablers of people posting lies on their site tells us where the journalistic standards of CBS are in 2010.” Spokesman Ben LaBolt said the column “made false charges.”

On this topic, I find myself agreeing with Andrew Sullivan (yes, End of Days is nigh).  (h/t – Instapundit)

 Is Obama actually going to use a Supreme Court nominee to advance the cause of the closet (as well as kill any court imposition of marriage equality)? And can we have a clear, factual statement as to the truth? In a free society in the 21st Century, it is not illegitimate to ask. And it is cowardly not to tell.

What are we afraid of, people?  And by “people”…. I mean President Obama and his Gay Leftist Lickspittles. 

The new Democrat slogan: “Live by Identity Politics…. Die by Identity Politics.”

  1. C’mon. No one seriously believes Elena Kagan would vote against court-imposed gay marriage if she were given a chance.

  2. 20 bonus points for using the word “lickspittles”!

    And who is this Andrew Sullivan person you speak of?

  5. I think they have, or had, a fear that if she comes out as a lesbian that it will make her confirmation harder. I am pretty sure some vocal religious right wingers would actually make a big deal out of it and push on some Republican senators to block her confirmation because of it. To some of them, she can’t be a good judge because her lifestyle is inherently sinful and in the their eyes, against the law of God.

    They might be over reacting but I don’t think its without some merit either.

    Sure, there are some religious conservatives who think that way, but I suspect that their numbers are dwarfed by those who simply worry that lesbian + liberal + Harvard background = Perfect Storm of Bolshevism.

  8. Another reason to block kagan — Christine Gregoire, WA State governor’s name is being bandied about as a likely replacement for her as solicitor General. And while Gregoire has been disastrous for our state and we would love to get rid of her, she would then become a disaster for the nation.
