A while back I wrote about Elena Kagan, and based on her past, assumed she’d be a left-wing activist judge. Somebody commented that it wasn’t fair that I “assume” she’d side with the liberals because she hadn’t voted on a single case yet.

Reality being the foreign concept it is to some, I decided, fine, we’ll wait until Kagan votes. Now she’s voted. Imagine my surprise when she sided with the legendary moonbats on California’s 9th Circus Court:

Washington…Justice Elena Kagan cast her first recorded vote on the Supreme Court late Tuesday, joining the liberals in dissent when the high court cleared the way for the execution of an Arizona murderer.

The 5-4 ruling overturned orders by a federal judge in Phoenix and the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco that had stopped the execution by lethal injection of Jeffrey Landrigan.

Here’s the money quote from the story:

A judge had put the execution on hold because she said she was “left to speculate” whether this drug was safe for its intended use.

Because we don’t want to use unsafe products when we’re executing people. What could possibly go wrong? The guy lives?

    Here I thought she would be unheard from with the filming of Mall Cop II

    …Shocking behavior from a liberal lesbian witch so close to Halloween.

    Gary Gilmore opted to be executed by firing squad(works every time) out West,decades ago.At the time he said,”Let’s do it”.This inspired Nike’s ‘Just Do It’slogan.Who says executions are not socially redemptive?

    B-B-But he could've been severely handicapped by the drugs in his system! And can you imagine the trauma he would've gone through from a botched execution? How can you be so unsympathetic to a man who murdered people, Mr. Powers?!

    …Ugh. Now I need a shower.

    Rick,

    Great contrast! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gary_Gilmore

    The guy had an IQ of 133. At least he had the good sense and dignity to shun lawyer's 11th hour appeals based on 'humane' concerns. Interesting connection, much thanks. Now as to the Nike claim…!

    If I ever meet her I'm going to say "Loved you in 'Mouse Hunt', Mr. Lane!"

    LOL! Well, at least superficially. Unlike her, Nathan actually has talent.

    Surprisingly – just like the unemployment numbers that come out every week.

    It's a good thing Kagan stopped this. They might even have used a dirty needle and who knows what Landrigan could have caught and come down with.
    I like Kagan. She carries off liberal stupidity with panache.
