Republican Tea Party Hedges on Rejecting Enemy of the Constitution Kagan

The Republican version of the Tea Party, the Tea Party Express (a money-making machine for establishment Republicans), has drafted a guideline for selecting Supreme Court nominees.

The plan lays out “Five Constitutional principles,” as follows: “Judges must interpret the Constitution of the United States as written,” “Judges must not use their positions to replace the text of the law and Constitution of the United States with their own personal feelings or experiences,” and “Judges must understand that the Federal government has no power if the Constitution does not explicitly provide it.”

Sounds good. And yet the Tea Party Express has yet to make up its mind on Elena Kagan, according to CNN.
