In a blog post entitled "Does Kagan Support Stoning?" Mother Jones's Stephanie Mencimer explains the twisted attempt at logic that passes for the neoconservative movement's attempt to "prove" that Elena Kagan, who if confirmed would become the eighth Jewish justice on the US Supreme Court, in some way backs Islamic sharia law.
It's an amusing, if mind-bending, read that gets most interesting to Mainers at the very end, when Mencimer theorizes why the neocons might be doing this kind of thing in the first place. Chief among her suggestions: swaying Snowe and Collins, by giving them cover against objections from constituents who expect them to keep women's issues in mind.
That might be plausible, except that Snowe and Collins already ditched women when they voted to put John Roberts and Samuel Alito on the high court.
