The Goldman Sachs connection poisons the nomination in my opinion.
That's like nominating someone who once worked with Al Qaeda....
I would also expect that anyone who feels that the categorical value of words can be determined should be pressured to reveal the metric by which they measure free expression - and how they 'value' societal cost.
But our Senators and Congressmen rarely foray into anything that is too 'deep'; usually preferring to go by mega-media's collection of celebrity information to determine what is or isn't objectionable.

Chief Justice Roberts: Kagan Asked Court to 'Embrace Theory of First Amendment That Would Allow Censorship Not Only of Radio and Television Broadcasts, But Pamphlets and Posters'
(CNSNews.com) - Solicitor General Elena Kagan, nominated Monday to the U.S. Supreme Court by President Barack Obama, told that court in September that Congress could constitutionally prohibit corporations from engaging in political speech such as publishing pamphlets that advocate the election or defeat of a candidate for federal office.
Kagan’s argument that the government could prohibit political speech by corporations was rejected by a 5-4 majority of the Supreme Court in the case of Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission. Justice Anthony Kennedy wrote the majority opinion in that case, and in a scathing concurrence Chief Justice John Roberts took direct aim at Kagan’s argument that the government could ban political pamphlets.

Not strong enough, poet. It seems to be getting better in *a few* places. Worse, HSUS/ PETA's work (& they are working OVERTIME in almost every city in the country) to pass draconian laws to limit & prohibit pet ownership and promote extinction started BEFORE Obama was elected. Even worse than that, Cass Sunstein has written a book promoting HSUS & PETA & Sunstein is a big fan. Figures.
(I need to look up the title, but I found that out on google by accident). Wayne Pacelle was quoted on HSUS' site some time back that he has "no problem with the extinction of all domestic animals")
humanewatch.org has some good information on them & keeps up. There is another one I can't remember offhand. Humane Watch has a Facebook page. If it is in your line & you are on FB, friend, fan or like, join ??- whatever. People don't know about this & one day, it will just hit. Please share.
