    dislike palin for her inquiry into how to ban books...dont care for this woman either for the same reason:

    "Solicitor Kagan's office in the initial hearing argued that it would be OK to ban books," McConnell said. "And then when there was a rehearing Solicitor Kagan herself in her first Supreme Court argument suggested that it might be OK to ban pamphlets.

    I am fundamentally against the banning of books - any books.

    This is the first tidbit to really get my attention about this mystery woman. That's quite a disturbing stance.

    ROFLMAO.....the GOP plays you all like violins. Do you even have a clue what Citizens United vs FEC was about? It sure as hell wasn't about Kagan's views on book banning. McCain-Feingold is the law she was defending. Remember, the solicitor general's office represents the federal government which, through McCain-Feingold (passed in 2002) was ordered to ban certain political speech based on who paid for it.

    So, now, the GOP, who wrote and passed the bill, wants to criticize her for enforcing it.......and you idiots are buying it......ROFLMAO!!!

    Seems its more about a corporation making politically motivated books than banning books for its content. dont think its like suggested in the title of this thread.

    Again, it seems more like campaign reform issue, not simply banning of books.

    Not that I agree with it

    Yup, I actually read what the article was about. Yet another dishonest title on a USMB thread, and then the obvious hacks just spout off without thinking and/or knowing what they are arguing about. They appear to just read conclusions and not the facts and issues involved :lol:

    The comments below the article are humorous to say the least.

    The unintentional humor is heartwarming.

    Liberals who want to ban negative political ads and 'certain political speech' and campus 'hate speech' but thump their chests as a fierce opponents of censorship!!


    Anybody got a mirror?
