Given Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan's general lack of a judicial record, conservative opponents of the Obama administration are having some difficulty finding an issue on which to criticize the former Harvard Law dean and current solicitor-general.
Which is not to say they're not trying: There is the issue of Kagan's sexuality, which has become a source of discontent for some right-wing pundits; and there's also the standard fall-back accusation against anyone suspected of not being conservative -- the "socialist" label.
But conservative commentator Pat Buchanan has found a different way to criticize the president's choice of Supreme Court judge: Kagan's Jewishness.
"If Kagan is confirmed, Jews, who represent less than 2 percent of the US population, will have 33 percent of the Supreme Court seats," Buchanan wrote in a column for WorldNetDaily on Friday. "Is this the Democrats' idea of diversity?"
In his column, Buchanan argued the Democrats have been hypocritical in claiming to be the party of ethnic and racial diversity because their Supreme Court picks don't reflect the US's ethnic and religious breakdown.

Being against having Jews serving the SCOTUS, is not antisemitism. "It's a trick, we use it all the time."
How about, having at least 33% of the Supreme Court having allegiances to foreign nations(Israel in this case)? And I say at least 33%, because it's probably closer to 100% of the Supreme Court is already Zionists.

Not everybody is a Zionist my friend. Can you provide any proof that they are?
She began her career as a professor at the University of Chicago Law School, leaving to serve as an Associate White House Counsel and later policy adviser under President Clinton. After a failed nomination to the United States Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit, she became a professor at Harvard Law School and was later named its Dean.

Funny, Buchanan complains about jews being over represented on the court but fails to mention that all of the rest of the justices on the Supreem Court are Catholics. That gives us 6 Catholics and 3 jews.
Once Stevens leaves, There will be no Protestants on the Supreem Court. There was never any real diversity on the court to begin with.

Always trying to find excuses to defend Zionist infiltration of America. Keep it up, how much are you getting paid? They crashed the economy, stole the money (your friendly Khazar Jew Bernie Madoff) and are paying it forward through bribes through willing fools. I have to say they are intelligent, they've controlled Americans for so long. I can't wait until they crash America, and neither can you. Awesome. Maybe we can arrange a big Khazarian Jew orgy, and don't forget to dress up in army clothes and help them kill Palestinian children, you would be a disloyal Goy.
