We had some big sound issues today, but we persevered. We’re also trying to do shorter episodes more often. We’ll see how we go.
We start off with Arthur talking a bit about Pride 48, which was this past weekend. Then it’s on to our main topic for today, Elena Kagan, whose nomination process has begun. The Republicans are just being silly. Why shouldn’t a liberal justice be replaced with a liberal justice?
This leads to a discussion of the recent gun ruling by the Supreme Court, and the right’s attempts to re-write the US Constitution. A call from Australia allows us to talk about a lesbian judge, and that leads to a discussion of Iceland and the Internet.
