Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan is “not kosher” -- meaning she is not fit to serve on the court -- according to more than 850 Orthodox members of the Rabbinical Alliance of America. That's the term the rabbis used about Kagan in a press release issued Thursday, saying "Elena Kagan is not kosher. She is not fit to sit on this Court -- or any court."I can't muster much concern about Kagan one way or the other. I mean, the only surprise was that she wasn't black. I was expecting Obama to appoint a black Marxist lesbian, so the fact that he went with a Jewish one instead doesn't fill me with alarm. It's not like the Supreme Court matters anymore, it's about as relevant as the Imperial Roman Senate.
Rabbi Yehuda Levin, spokesman for the alliance, told CNSNews.com on Thursday that "a great deal has been made about the fact that she would be the second Jewish woman on the court, and we want to signal to people across the country that we take no pride in this.”
