Watch: Bill O'Reilly on Elena Kagan's Sexuality

Oreilly_kagan

Bill O'Reilly covered the discussion of Elena Kagan's sexuality and whether it matters or not.

Said O'Reilly: "Americans has a right to know if their Supreme Court justice has an orientation that may or may not dictate which way she votes on a vital issue."

Well, then perhaps we should have all the Justices release statements regarding their sexual orientation, just to keep things on the up and up.

Watch, AFTER THE JUMP...

  1. This isn't about her orientation. It's the right-wing, spin cycle drumming up the base the easiest way they know how. She looks a little dykey so why not suggest that she's a lesbian. One more liberal nominee eliminated.

  2. When I was young and voting for the first time in the 1950s,I admit I voted for Judges based on their Jewish sounding names... however, I soon realized that was wrong. As a baseball fan,my hero Hank Greenberg, was Jewish and he made me proud, because his stats were always good.But you didn't have to like him just because he had something in common with him anymore than you had to be Italian to like Joe DiMaggio, or Polish to like Stan Musial, or Black to like Jackie Robinson. In 1977, I did not vote or support Harvey Milk, who was both gay and Jewish like myself, because I felt Terry Hallinan, a lawyer was better qualified to serve most of the constituents in our district . Terry had a great civil rights record, and was very involved with the "Freedom Riders", and helped them to get marching permits down South, he also defended 27 G.I.'s, who did not want to return to the Vietnam War, and was active in local politics, and came from a family who fought for civil rights in the 1950s, before it was fashionable to do so. There were many in the gay community who supported Milk, based only on the fact he was gay. The gay press claimed that Terry was overtly anti-gay for using the slogan "UNITED WE STAND". After Harvey Milk won,he proved to be a good politician when he led the fight against Anita Bryant, and the Briggs Initiative and the fight against Coors Beer. After Harvey was assassinated and Harry Britt, was appointed to fill Milk's seat. When it came time to run on his own Merit... Harry put OUT brochures that "Who needs a Gay Supervisor?" We Do! Ironically, the same gay newspaper who claimed that Terry was anti-gay for his slogan, Used their newspapers front page with a "UNITED WE STAND" headline in their endorsement of Britt! Years later, Terry was elected to 2 terms as the District Attorney of S.F. and had over 40 Openly gay Lawyers and administrators in his administration...
    I couldn't care less or more if Elena Kagan was gay... it's her qualifications that should be the only reasons to consider her for a Supreme Court Justice. Based on her
    knowledge of the law and Constitution, and heading one of America's great law schools tells me she is more than qualified.
