News Roundup for 8/5/10

Armed terrorist
Elena Kagan

-Headline of the day-
"Islamophobic frenzy: Kagan is 'Justice Sharia.'"

Gay marriage is legal in California, the "Ground Zero mosque" is going up in Manhattan... If Elena Kagan is confirmed to the Supreme Court, then gay people will be married at the Ground Zero mosque and then Sharia law will require that the happy couple be beheaded! It's the nightmare scenario! You want that? Well, do you?

Tucker Carlson does not want that, so he put up a big headline on his Daily Caller website calling Kagan "Justice Sharia" and reported that "Critics allege Kagan is sympathetic to Islamic law." I allege that Carlson worships Satan -- with as much evidence as Kagan's critics have -- so expect that to be a big banner headline at the DC tomorrow.

Basically, these critics play "Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon" with Kagan, in order to connect her to Islamic extremism. In one example, the reasoning goes that Kagan taught at Harvard, Harvard has an Islamic Studies program, so obviously Kagan is a secret Muslim terr'ist, like Barack HUSSEIN Obama! How could anyone miss it? It's so obvious!

Clearly, if Elena Kagan is confirmed as the next Justice on the Supreme Court, America is doomed, doomed! (Media Matters)

-How does Washington work?-
The short answer is, it doesn't -- as Jon Stewart pointed out on The Daily Show last night.
