Pat Toomey Questions Kagan's Impartiality After Swallowing Roberts' 'Balls And Strikes' Story

Pat Toomey informs Pennsylvanians today that he would vote against Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan because he questions her "impartiality." Yet he would be an enthusiastic supporter of Chief Justice John Roberts, who told Congress he would act as a dispassionate caller of "balls and strikes," then took a Court that had been tilted 7-2 or 6-3 toward Republican nominees for many years and pulled it to the right. Toomey's position on Kagan is roughly as convincing as his campaign's claim that the nightclubs his brothers operated (with Toomey as an investor) were 'family business restaurants' that gave Toomey 'small business experience.'

If Toomey wins, the library that Rendell is going to build for Specter is going have writing on the side saying, "See what happens when you get picky, you hipster assholes."
